I put in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant did nothing to acknowledge it or even say happy birthday to her. We are very regular customers and I’m stunned the service was so awful.

Thanks -

We had a table near the bathrooms. The open right into the dining area. There was a horrible sewer smell the whole time! The food was good. The place is loud!

I'm a fan of Doc B's. Its a great place for a nice lunch of dinner downtown. The menu has a large variety of salads, burgers, sandwiches and entrees. Everything i've had has been great here. Also, the customer service here is always great- very friendly staff. Their bacon is also unreal!!

There was no defrosted pizza dough so no pizza
The buttered noodles for my grandchildren were hard noodles used for the tangled noodle salad. They weren’t edible but since there was no possibility of pizza for my vegetarian grandchildren it was a bust

What a fantastic restaurant. Try the specialty drinks. The chicken wings and guacamole were amazing. Justin, our server, was knowledgeable with the menu. His suggestions were spot on. We liked this restaurant so much that we ate their twice this week.

Doc B's has a good location, just off the Magnificent Mile (Michigan Avenue). The atmosphere is friendly with excellent service. I've been there three times and have found the menu offerings to be varied and the food I've ordered was delicious. I highly recommend the knife and fork salad. It's a great place for lunch, but make a reservation, because it's very popular with the lunch crowd!

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.

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!
