This restaurant has an excellent wine selection and the server was very helpful to our group in selecting a wine to pair with our entrees. The food was good and service very good.

I used to live right around the corner from Dolan's, and I love this restaurant. The wine selection is great and the food is consistently good. I have had some wonderful seafood entrees here, but on my last visit I had a great steak. I especially enjoy the lunch menu. The crab cakes are delicious!

We had a wonderful seafood meal, both small plates and entres. Food is artfully presented with creative combinations such as seared scallops over a done-just-right risotto cake infused with a fragrant sauce. We tried about 4 of the chef's

Pros: Chef doing some very creative, tasty things with seafood

A family friend took us to Dolan's for a special night out. We were seated in a room all to ourselves (there were 13 people). The menu consisted of a three course meal, where you could choose a dish from each course. I ordered a spinach

Pros: excellent service

Cons: too expensive, not enough food

I've given Dolan's many chances over the past year. Each time I've been, the food has been undercooked and overpriced. They do have a few decently-priced drinks during happy hour, but only a few. The most annoying thing about going to

Pros: A few good drink specials

Cons: Hateful staff, poor service, awful food, refusal to give more than one bill per party or handle mulitple credit cards for payment

We haven't been to Dolans before and I don't know why because this was one of the best meals we have had in a long time. We started with Happy Hour in the Bar and had the steamed mussels and Ahi Tuna Quesadilla. My husband eats mussels

Dolan's does not live up to the price. You can get a much better meal at a chain steakhouse. I ordered beef filet to be cooked medium, which was not even medium rare with average flavor. My wife had a special of halibut and crab that

This place is a very nice dining experience. If it was closer to where we lived and their hours worked fo rus we would go more often. They have a great wine selection and the staff is very helpful with giving you reccomendations. The atmosphere is relaxing and quaint. The prices are reasonable.

Went to Dolans after hearing rave reviews about the food, wine, and atmosphere. Waitress was rude and they wouldnt let us use a coupon we had recieved in the mail the week before. Had the filet and it was ok but definitely not great.
