The Cobb Salad was so good for dinner that I went back and got one for lunch the next day! Also bought a gift card for the person at The Drake Hotel who recommended them to me! Cornbread croutons were yummy, tomatoes fresh, just the right amount of dressing. Yum!

Really great place. We have been here a few times and the food has always been at least good and sometimes great. All the desserts are outstanding. This location doesn't have the Tres Leches cake that the other location has. That cake should exist everywhere.

Service is solid. Sometimes the drink refills are a little slow, but everyone is friendly and no other complaints.

If you have the right expectations, upscale bar food and better for reasonable price and nice atmosphere. Doc B's is nailing it.

The remodel looks great. More upscale. They took off the cauliflower. My favorite side dish. Not happy.

Chicken sandwich was great, the brussle sprouts could have used more salt instead of sugar

This was my first time at Doc B's -- won't be my last! Come early and enjoy the free candied bacon with your drinks at the bar. It's the perfect combo of sweet and salty. The urban decor is cool yet comfortable, and we loved the vegetarian options (even though we both eat meat). Try the Wok Bowls!

First time here- Very good. Have been passing and working with the building for a few years and never thought much about eating there. The name really doesn't inspire me, but I was wrong. Menu looks wonderful overall and the mahi salad was spot on perfect.

It's great food with healthy options that are delicious. I particularly like "The Plate" - which is all vegetarian. It's a great place to go with friends to catch up in a casual setting.

Food was excellent. Wasn’t a fan of the seating options. I had made a reservation for two ahead of time and we were put at a table one inch away from another table of two. I understand it’s the city and spaces are small, but it just kind of ruined the ambiance. But I would still go back for the food.

Love the food. My go to place.
However, Both of our orders got screwed up tho nothing terribly serious.
Always too loud for my taste. No need for blaring music when conversations abound.
Prices r reasonable and portions very large. Niece’s matza ball soup was way way too salty. No need for lots of salt if made correctly so it is tasty without it.

We had a reservation, but were seated right next to the kitchen. There were constant servers bustling past our table. We were also seated right on top of another couple. I’m the past their good has been pretty good, but this night it was just okay.

One of our favorite spots in the Gold Coast. Steak Frites is, by far, our preferred choice but we also love the Cajun Crusted Trout, the Wok Out Bowl (for lunch) and any of the burgers. The beer selection is also very good. The staff is always friendly and efficient. We go back all the time and recommend to friends and family.
