Always get a great meal at Dowlings! Go with their specials! They are always something to rave about!!!
Excellent food in taste and value. Experienced servers and very varied menu with excellent specials that change daily
Too much food. Took home enough of our meal to have another dinner the next day,
always an excellent time & dinner. wait staff is as wonderful as the food!
Had a birthday celebration with a party of 7...something for everyone, excellent food quality and value. Our server was attentive and efficient with our service.
Great Neighborhood restaurant. The owners and staff are friendly and accommodating and the food is always good. The fajitas (Steak/Chicken or Shrimp) are always a favorite. They come served on a sizzling cast iron skillet, with excellent toppings. For a change or pace, the Lamb or Chicken Gyro's is always a great option.
A true find
Love this place!
They always deliver on just what I was in the mood for!
Good enough to make us return
There aren’t many places left where you can just get decent food at decent prices with no sense of the usual Hamptons “scene”. One of our favourites. Steaks for $28 on Sundays are even better value than usual. Good choice of draft beers and very kid friendly. If this closes down, all is lost.
Family gave it a c+. Waiter was terrible. Had empty glasses, never came back for second round. Support staff covered the table very well. Food was ok.
Food was very good. Good size portions and a reasonable price. Very happy. Will definitely go back.
M.J. Dawlings is my favorite place for dinner. My friends and I often call it “Cheer’s” because we go there so often everybody knows us. Food is excellent, service is outstanding and prices are reasonable
I had the steak fajitas and could not chew the steak. My husband had the Shrimp Po Boy and it was more bread than anything elas.
Great casual place frequented by locals and families. Good food with affordable prices and friendly staff.
In the crazy, overpriced scene that is the Hamptons, it’s so refreshing that Dowling’s remains a bastion of good quality, reasonably priced food, with a great neighbourhood ambience. Always busy and for good reason. Long may they continue to do what they’ve always done.
We had a 7:15 reservation and arrived at 7:20. Anyway when we got there the hostess was no where to be found and when she appeared she was going to give our outdoor table away to another group. I informed her that we had a reservation for outdoor seating and she was very rude saying that we were really late. I checked my phone and at that time it was 7:23, I showed her and she said yes you are really late. I said we had a reservation at 7:15 and arrived at 7:20. Anyway she chastised me as she showed us to our table. Servers outside were very nice but barely around. This is my first review. I guess I am just very disappointed and very embarrassed by the way the hostess treated me. I understand if guest are late for their reservations you can’t hold tables but 5 minutes seems reasonable and certainly didn’t warrant a rude hostess giving me attitude. We will never go there again. I suggest getting there early if you plan on going. Food wasn’t bad nothing crave-able.
Good Bar Food
Always happy at M.J.’s!!! The specials are amazing! I had scallop tacos that were delicious! The price is right for the area!
Hamburgers excellent. Thursday night special Burgers $10
Great food, great value!
Price fixe was better than expected. Wine was good too!
We had a good time. The food was. Very good especially the prime rib. The service was good. The only problem was the men’s room which was disgusting.
Always good food at Dowlings! Specials and salads are my favorite!
Food was pretty good. Place was clean. Service was spotty. Waited 20 minutes even with reservation.
M J Dowling is a great neighborhood restaurant. Great for dinner with the family or and quick night out with friends. The food is very good and the staff friendly, as are the owners who are usually on site. Go for the Fajitas, steaks, Nacho’s, gyro’s, quesadillas , ribs, or burgers. They have it all and more, each one dish well prepared. Excellent place overall.
A very friendly local place to have a nice meal with great service.
Always excellent service...we have been going there for years & the food is always good and Dowlings is very clean & staff always willing to help. We would certainly recommend & it’s the perfect place to head to with kids after sporting events.
Wonderful experience, delicious food. Seating was upgraded upon arriving.
Love this place. Been coming here since opening day. Love that I don’t have to go into Sag Harbor town proper with all the crowds when in season. Right down the block from my home. They always make you feel like family.
M.J. Dowling’s is one of our favorite restaurants. We go there all the time. The food is always great and the service is great. Our nickname for it is “Cheers”
Went for MJ Dowlings tonight, and it was fajita night special. Food was good, although entrees were delivered to members of our party at varying times. Which is an uncomfortable situation. The staff is nice, the food is good and they even had live music. Made for a fun Wednesday night. MJ’s is a good local dining place.
Reliable neighbourhood restaurant and bar. The kitchen is open late and there are daily special offers. A great place to go after the movies of the theatre.
I was told they had No reservation for us and offered us a table at the noisy bar.
We declined and left.
What is the purpose of making a reservation if they dont honor it?
Great place we had nice dinner and great service We enjoy going there
Great local place. Good food, reasonable prices, friendly efficient staff. Perfect go to pub with great daily specials.Fajitas are fantastic as are the ribs. Great place for dinner with family or friends . Great place for cocktails while watching a game.
Great local place.
Food was mediocre, service (from 3 different people) was spotty, atmosphere fine for a pub, but I’d say stick to a burger and skip the fries (not good).
excellent place, everything was delicious, can't wait to return!
My husband and I loved this place. We happen to be in area and this was a great catch. Service was great. The food was delicious. Kudos to the chef. Nice variety of different food! I loved the tuna tarter, great seafood and the lamb gyro was outstanding. Thank you
