We were here for dinner on Friday night. Our sever, Cheyenne, was great. Attentive, helpful, good sense of humor. The restaurant had nice ambiance...warm, low lighting, comfortable furnishings, etc. The food was fine, but didn't blow my hair back. I had hanger steak but we also had chicken and salads at the table. It was all fine. Cheyenne suggested the... More

We took my parents and most of us ordered ribs, pork chops or the fire roasted chicken. I was very disappointed in the chicken. It was dry and lacked flavor other than the skin. My father wasn't impressed with the ribs and he loves ribs.

This is a lovely restaurant in a very busy area in Golden Valley and even near a Patina:). The hospitality was friendly and genuine. My burger came out pretty rare and I had ordered medium-well. They were so nice to make me another and also took it off the bill. I am a frequent diner at a Doolittles in Alexandria,... More

This was a wonderful restaurant and should rate #1 in Golden Valley. 3 friends and myself all ordered different entrees and everyone cleaned their plates. Sky was our server and did a wonderful job. Served with rosemary bread was spectacle.

My family loves this place. The decorations are great, depicting the history of aviation. The food is excellent. Anything with their wood fire smoked chicken or ribs in it is wonderful. The chicken is moist and flavorful and the ribs fall off the rack. I normally don't order a salad at a restaurant but I love getting their salads with... More

The smell was unbelievable, from the moment we stepped in we could smell the wood fire grill and rotisserie! I had the ribeye steak and it was perfect. The place was pack but we were able to be sited right away. Great place, great food and very nice servers!

We've been fans of Doolittles for years. The food is always excellent, they make great cocktails, and the service is always good as well. The roasted chicken is always a favorite, as are any the steaks, all excellent. And while we sometimes go here for family occasions, we also like to pop in sometimes just for one of their delicious... More

Our experience at Doolittle's was very underwhelming. After all of the rave reviews I read on here and other sites, we decided to check it out. The decor was great and there were many friendly faces from staff when we arrived, but our server left much to be desired. She kept our drinks refilled promptly but she seemed extremely distracted,... More

Fabulous tasting entrees. Offered free dessert for daughters birthday. Wings appetizer was awesome with huge portions. Unique flavors from the grill. Our group said pasta was great. Salmon burger very good. I had the pork tenderloin done Jamaican style. Delicious! They even carried curious traveler beer-my favorite! Very clean bathrooms! Free bread before meal was great!

Featuring woodfired rotisserie cooking, Doolittles Woodfire Grill is an experience that ignites all of your senses! The woodfired rotisserie grills meat over an open flame for a savory wood roasted flavor. The rotation of the rotisserie creates self basting and slow roasting skewers resulting in juicy and succulent meats such as Spit-Roasted Chicken, and Smoked Hanger Steak with Horseradish-Whipped Potatoes and Red Wine Reduction. Doolittles boasts over 60 wines by the bottle and 30 selections by the glass. Come as you are!
