great neighborhood place. I think it might have a new manager because the staff was friendlier and more accommodating this time than ever before. I used to eat there two times a week.
enough food to choose from on the menu.

As usual the food and service were great. The one disappointment was that I indicated in my reservation that we were celebrating my friend’s birthday and it was not acknowledged.

We went late on a Sunday night and kept the staff almost an hour past closing, but they were very hospitable. The food suggestions were great. We were very pleased with our experience.

Our waiter Michael was great and friendly
Food was very good.
We had to move to a booth so we could hear each other.
Which was was done quickly and not an issue.
We will be back.

My friend and I went to Doc B for their Danish Ribs and they had just run out and wouldn’t have them for two hours. The waiter got the manager and he came to our table and told us the situation and apologize and then bought us an appetizer and desert. Which was not necessary since these things happen. The manager was very personable and made us feel like we were special customers. That was huge since I am from Phoenix and my friend from Denver!

It was very unpleasant! We eat here regularly and this was our first disconcerting experience. We had reservations and arrived 10 minutes early. We were seated. It took a reasonable 30 minutes for us to order the food and for it to arrive. We ate our well prepared meal in 30 minutes and were talking and finishing our drinks when a Dr B employee approached our table. She said, “We want to push your table with that one to seat a group of 8. Your don’t have to leave the restaurant, just move.” If she had cared to look, we were 5 to 10 minutes from leaving. Or she could have asked, instead of demanded. Whether it is poor decision making, poor training, discrimination or just rude behavior, I don’t know. However, her demand was unreasonable and tainted the evening.

Doc B's NEVER DISAPPOINTS!

I have yet to leave Doc B's without a full belly and a big smile. I can honestly say my Doc B experiences,
I eat there often, are all consistently terrific: wonderful meals, incredibly accommodating service, and always a lively atmosphere.

The portions are massive and the quality of the ingredients is super fresh and delicious.

I can highly recommend Doc B's on Walton and Doc B's on Grand. Equally wonderful restaurants.

Back to Doc B’s this week for soup of the day, a sandwich with their very good quinoa salad, and draft beer: just over $40 with tax and tip, so not exactly great value, but good food and fast and friendly service. Good job!

My wife had the Rueben and thought it was one of the best. I had the wok with teriyaki and tuna. I found it bland with an odd charred taste others have noted. On a Friday at 6 it is a very noisy place.

My boyfriend and I were starving and needed something quick on Saturday night. We put a reservation in for Doc B’s on opentable and got sat pretty immediately! We had ordered delivery from there multiple times, and it wasn’t always delicious. We had Royce as our server, and he was awesome! So attentive (even though he was like triple sat on a Saturday night), gave great recommendations, and was super friendly. The oven roasted wings, sweet potato fries, and steak sandwich were AMAZING. To top it all off, the manager stopped by and gave us some amazing snickerdoodle flavored gelato sandwiches. Overall the food and service was excellent.

Great healthy food and the service was outstanding. The only complaint was we had a table very close to the person sitting next to us. It almost felt like we were sitting at the same table so I would’ve loved to have a little bit more space and privacy on my date night. But would definitely recommend this to whoever wants to eat well

Honored our seating request which we always appreciate. Server very attentive. I had a French Martini at the Grand location earlier this year. It was no longer on menu but they still made it for me. This one wasn't quite as memorable as the one I got at the Grand location but was still good.

The main dishes were all good, but the sides were over salted. The seating area is small and there is nothing special about the place. It's a good place for a quick bite to eat.
