Excellent food, service and people . . . as usual. A place diners can count on. Malana delivered delightful service, and other staff members contributed to my experience. Dining at Doc B's is a team effort spearheaded by a superb crew at every level.

We love this place--plenty of options for meat eaters and vegans and everything in between. I usually have a wok out bowl with tofu but sometimes I have a hamburger. It is all good.

Selected as informal dining location close to our hotel after all day drive. Food quality exceeded our expectations. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Not a special occasions location but fabulous food. If you don’t like high tops note that on your reservation.

Super service and food. Sierra seated me and called me by name. My server, Natalia, was superb — following up to be certain all was good and to keep my iced-tea glass full. Others helped as needed, combining to deliver excellent tag-team service.

The “check in for reservations” process needs to be adjusted. Staff did not acknowledge our party or the guests ahead of us waiting to check in until we initiated contact. We stood there for approximately 10-15 minutes without any interaction with the hosts.

The food at Doc B’s never disappoints . We loved the guacamole and sweet potato chips , Knife and Fork Cob salad, and The #1 Tuna salad. The food always tastes fresh . The menu’s variety allows you to eat as healthy and lean or as full fat as you choose.

The food orders were incorrect. My burger was wrong. Everyone else had waters and we didn’t. My salad was taken back and brought to my table saying never mind I think we got it right. Our server was nice but he seemed lost.

I have been there several times it’s always been a good experience, just have a couple of things that were subpar compared to past visits, my female friend used the bathroom and said the soap dispensers were rusted, second, I ordered the artichoke appetizer to take home and have for lunch the following day, now This is the first time I have had this dish, but I have to say it was so tough and chewy I could not eat it, the only part soft enough to eat were the stems, I’m not picky but this was horrible, I had to throw it away.

Great service and food. As always. Blake, my server, kept the iced-tea glass full and helped when I asked about the menu. Alya (check that spelling) as she seated me and took cate of others waiting for tables. Management and staff here deliver customer service better than what you get at many supposedly high-end places. Superb operation.

The quality of Doc B’s food and service is always exceptional. High quality ingredients are fresh and delicious. Iced tea is excellent as well. I almost always order the Brussels Sprouts Salad, which is AMAZING. I changed it up tonight and ordered the Perfect House Salad with grilled chicken - my other go to item. The vinaigrette is light and flavorful, and the cornbread croutons are a nice touch.You couldn’t ask for a fresher salad.

Tonight, my dinner partner had the Crispy Chicken Sandwich and loved it. Once again, Doc B’s paired the ingredients to create a unique and delicious sandwich. Panko and reggiano chicken topped with coleslaw, white onion, pickle, and 1000 island dressing.

Other recommendations- The Number Six, The Wok Out Bowl, Guac with homemade sweet potato chips.

Doc B's fine as a take away albeit its so overpriced. As to dine-in a waste of time. No atmosphere its like a 'glorified' fast food. As stated so overpriced for the amount one gets. When the Gold Coast one opened first it was much more inviting always a little pricey, but out of control now.
