We like the restaurant a lot. The service is excellent. The matzo ball soup is great. We can’t rate the food higher for two reasons. First, the burger is very average. Second, the burger is too small for its price.

The greeting was warm. If a consumer has the confidence to go out during a pandemic and the bravado to endure the frigid cold temperatures In a January with high blowing wind to walk to Doc B,s you know said consumer is vested in overcoming the mundane and looking for a terrific meal. Warm welcome, comfortable booth, cozy atmosphere all great starts but then enter Our server Royce with his dazzling smile and 100% genuine regard for hospitality. Royce was well versed (not in a rehearsed way, but rather in a “I got this I want you to have a great experience and the culinary team has my back and your back in this visit” Royce’s Suggestions on food items, intelligence on pairings, and His hospitality wholeheartedly served us. Price point perfect, food delicious, service amazing. Made the frigid cold a distant memory well until it was time to leave again. All worth it thanks a million we loved it!

Our waiter, Royce, was one of the best in the biz. The hostess was helpful when we arrived. They were kind to offer gluten free options. The food was all very tasty. Had a wonderful evening out.

Considering the lockdown and the resulting mandatory outdoor dining on a cold and windy Chicago night, the food and service were terrific. Doc B's is always a great venue, and they're doing their best until things open up. The food was hot and tasty, and the server, Royce, was personable and took great care of us.

Definitely not a place to go on a date on. The seating was very limited and uncomfortable at the high top counters along with it being extremely cold INSIDE! The food was good but overall not a great experience.

Hi,

I do understand the restrictions due to Covid-19, it was very cold. Also, the food was not very hot once arrived to our table. The sweet potato fries was very hard (to the point they did not taste done). I mention that it was my husband and I anniversary when making the reservation and nothing was mentioned at the restaurant. It was like eating take out on the corner in the middle of February.

While the quality of food has deteriorated at restaurants due to COVID, Doc B's food was excellent. A little chilly outside, but well worth it for the food.

our server was great. the only reason i took away 1 star was because she should have told us when were seated at 8:30 that the bar closed at 9. my husband and i would have both ordered 2 glasses of wine rather than just 1 since we knew we would want another glass.

Doc B’s in the Gold Coast was excellent. Food and drinks were great, and the staff was super knowledgeable and accommodating. I’d recommend one of the wok out bowls- super fresh and customizable. Also, the sweet potato chips and guacamole were so addicting- I could have just ate those all night. Thanks again Joe and Connie for a great experience!

Food was amazing!

I noticed when I carryout the Salmon dinner is tiny compared to dining in. I’ve ordered over three times and noticed and had to dine in to see if they would try serving me a piece of small fish that wouldn’t make a 8 yr old child full.

I am aware of the tough circumstances facing restaurants during covid however we made a reservation and then waited over 30 minutes before being seated. Once we were seated, we were never greeted or acknowledged by a server although they checked on the surrounding tables at least 3 times. After over 20 minutes of sitting and being ignored, we left.

Doc B's is a great place for fresh, creative dishes. The service this visit was mediocre, I ordered a burger with no onions, and it came with onions. Why?
