Great food! We had kale and artichoke dip and I ate the steak sandwich for dinner. Beer selection was on. Everything was delicious and our waitress was very helpful.

Even locals enjoy some touristy stuff sometimes - the SNL Experience and a chain restaurant among the budget hotels. My wife was in the mood for a burger, and Doc B's is about 2 blocks from the SNL exhibit. The burgers were terrific, the crispy potatoes were outstanding, and our server was friendly, attentive, and helpful.

I've been a customer since 2014. Although I have my favorites on the menu, I have never been disappointed when trying new things. Great service. I only wish there weren't big screen TVs all over the place.

Always good and consistent from Salads to burgers to sandwiches. We live close to Doc B's and dine often either at the restaurant or delivery. The daily soups are very tasty especially the chicken soup on Tuesdays. This past weekend we stopped by for a Sunday lunch . I had the Turkey Burger which was fantastic and my wife had the Matza ball soup which is her favorite. If you want a great place to have some good food and watch a game , Doc B's will not disappoint.

The food was ok, a basic salad & sandwich menu. Think a notch above Fridays or Applebees. The drinks were good. I would recommend the fish sandwich & the beet gin cocktail. If you are looking for a restaurant to bring kids to this is it but if you are looking for an inventive menu with fancier food, go elsewhere like The Purple Pig down the road but don’t bring kids there, it’s a busy place with great food.
