While Alexandria has a paucity of good restaurants, this is exceptionally good. Mixed drinks were perfect. Spit roast chicken dinner and prime rib French dip were delicious. Coffee and custard chocolate topped a wonderful meal. Atmosphere is relaxing and service was attentive. We will return very soon! Pricing is very appropriate for quality received.

This is our second time driving through Alexandria from Chicago. It did not disappoint! We started off with our favorite appetizer - the Parmesan Artichoke Dip served on a very nice grilled crostini instead iof the usual tortilla chips. For the entre I had the Mushroom Sacchetti with Portobella mushrooms, artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes which was a very nice combination!... More

Didn't like the way I was treated. Ordered pasta and paid for a chicken breast on my pasta. Got two...two tiny pieces of chicken. Really!

I had eaten at Doolittles for lunch while in town on business, and just had to take my wife there while in Alex for a weekend. It definitely lived up to its billing as one of the best places to eat in the area. My wife had scallops in a ginger sauce, she loved it. The presentation was well done... More

Food was acceptable. Chef could stick to basics, we were looking for a good steak, not a dinning experience. This is a Minnesota rural setting, not the Ritz in New York City. More emphasis on the food, forget the presentation.

Seemed like a very limited menu, reasonably priced but food was not great, ribs were fatty and steaks were tasteless, great dinner salad and the fries were good.

We go to Doolittles on Special Events. WE always have great food and service. Also the price is within our means being retired. You need to go there. You will go back again.

Featuring woodfired rotisserie cooking, Doolittles Woodfire Grill is an experience that delights 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. Warm, relaxing atmosphere...come as you are!
