We go to Chef Dooly just about every time we visit Florida. Food is always outstanding and the portions are generous so we usually have enough leftover for lunch the next day. The seafood is properly prepared and the sauces are not overly heavy. 10%...More

My visit to Chef Dooley was a disappointment. I've passed the place on many occasions and always saw people in the restaurant. It's one of those places with limited hours and it presents the appearance of "special" restaurant. They claim to be a northern Italian...More

Although the restaurant is on one level, the tables are very close together and it was difficult to manuever around them. I would call in advance and speak to the manager.

The tables are close together. However, you must make a reservation to dine, so when you call, just ask if they can accommodate a wheelchair. Personally, I think they can.
