Cozy place, modern decor, good food. I had the cajun chicken. It had good flavor, but there was no heat. My wife is Keto and gluten-free; she had the stir fry with quinoa and loved every bite.

Great restaurant. Somewhat fast and fresh ingredients. Great service. Delicious guacamole and sweet potato chips. Wish they offered a seasonal salad bc they tend to get repetitive when you eat there often.

When we entered, the front room staff was more than helpful . They hellped my husband up the stairs, held the door and told us they would help us use the elevator to exit.

We had a table of 6 for lunch on a Sunday. Specialty drinks were very good. Food was great. Service was attentive but they were definitely rushing us and the restaurant was not busy. The waitress took plates with food still on them twice. We called her on it once and she returned the guacamole and chips. The servers should know better.

This a busy place! When I arrived a few minutes early, the hostess seated me right away. Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and professional even though he was really busy. Our food was fantastic - healthy and delicious. The menu is creative and the portions are generous. We had a very fine Prosecco considering the reasonable price. I always struggle on the Gold Coast and in Streeterville to think of a place to go for lunch. Not anymore, I’ll be back to Doc B’s often! I highly recommend this place!

Noise in that restaurant continues to be really bad. Full of people at 6 pm yet they had stereo music blaring. Some music with no lyrics in the background would be one thing but that made no sense. Server was really great and food is always consistently good

Overall, good food, drinks and atmosphere. I recommend going if you're looking for a dinner spot with good burgers and sandwiches...casual, but with higher-end atmosphere. Must try the guacamole and sweet potato appetizer!

I’ve been there in the past for lunch and really enjoyed it. Their salads are great! My husband ordered the hot chick and I ordered the ribs. They were good but don’t compare to the salads. We will be back, but likely will order differently.

Doc B’s is the place to “B”!! Amazing food all of the many times I have been there with my girlfriend! Nothing beats their tangled noodle salad or their amazing burgers. The general manager, named Tijon (May be spelling that wrong), was very accommodating to everyone in the restaurant’s needs. He kindly cleared our table and asked if we were interested in dessert. He named some options and could definitely tell that we were interested but full at the same time. Tijon went out of his way and got us our own gelato cookie sandwiches free of charge which were so delicious! Outstanding service every time we go and honestly is a staple place we tell visitors from out of town to stop in as well!!

We ordered the shrimp salad and the fried chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. Both items were delicious. The restaurant is very loud so it makes it difficult to have a conversation but we managed. Our waitress was very nice and polite but she forgot to bring us water and she cleared my plate while my friend was still eating. I think they should wait to clear the table until all parties have finished eating. I’ll definitely go back as the food is very good.

We made a last minute reservation on a Thursday night. Glad we did because Doc B's was bustling and the dining room was fairly small. The two of us split the guacamole and friend potato chips (delicious, share with more than 2 people though!), and the night's special: beet salad. What a delicious beginning. We then split the steak noodle salad - highlighted w/very good thai /mint peanut sauce - and closed with a shared slice of key lime pie. We were stuffed. And oh so happy. I wondered if we had just gotten lucky with our menu choices...our server said no. The things we ordered weren't even the most popular dishes. That just means we have to be back. Doc B's is a wee bit pricey for my regular lineup, but it a pretty great place for a delicious, quick meal.

We arrived for 5 o’clock dinner and were seated right away although we did have a reservation. We were promptly asked for our drink selection as well as was offered the specials for the day. Drink and food suggestions were given which is always helpful. The overall Resturant was very good the food tasted very good however we did get the jambalaya special and thought it needed a bit more meat. The flavor however was excellent. We would definitely return.
