Whatever you do, don’t forget the popcorn!

The moment you walk into Doolittle’s cozy entryway your mouth will start to water. Their woodfire grill fills the entire restaurant with a scrumptious aroma that will make you want to order one of everything on the menu. A great place to relax and refuel after an amazing day of enjoying Eagan!
