I will definately be back! Delicious and healthy food options with great service. Happy hour prices were good, regular menu was a bit pricey but after seeing and tasting the food it is well worth it!

We had a reservation for 8:30. We walked in at 8:15 and the restaurant was quite empty (maybe 8 full tables). I informed the hostess of my reservation and she could not have appeared more disinterested. Did not make any note of our reservation or even check to see if we did have one. She took us to a table and sat us and literally within seconds someone was over asking for a drink order. We hadn't even received a drink or wine list yet. Once we received it they stood next to the table just waiting for us to order. We ended up not even ordering drinks because the server would not leave our table. We then received a new server who was very polite but not very knowledgeable of the menu. Our food was delicious, but our overall experience was tainted by the level of service we received. It's sad because we were referred to go there for the first time by good friends, but we will not return.

Located adjacent to International Plaza with other bars and restaurants - very vibrant scene with indoor and outdoor seating. Excellent service and a varied menu. Plenty of parking and (at your cost) valet parking also.

Nothing great, nothing terrible. Menu has changed and not for the better unfortunately. Service was okay but ambiance is still good. Overall, food is overpriced for what you’re getting.

Great food, fantastic service. Had the brick chicken which was very tasty. The only thing I didn't like was that it was very loud and difficult to carry on a conversation.

This was my first time at Doc Bs and I loved it. The tuna burger - as recommended by our server - was fantastic, as were the homemade chips and guac, and the side of kale slaw. I'll be back!

Great menu enhanced by an outstanding server. I love it when the server offers insightful tips on a sophisticated menu and then goes the extra mile to make sure you get exactly what you want on each plate, as Greg did. Becomes a much more intimate dining experience, where you're a guest rather than just a customer.

Great service, friendly staff and excellent food! The beetle juice cocktail is a must try; very light and refreshing. Everything Doc B’s serves is fresh and very good! We are from Texas and had never been here before but I am looking forward to trying their location in Austin. Thank you to Sara, one of the managers, for going above and beyond and making our experience truly enjoyable!

The overall experience was good. Door greeters very friendly. Table server was efficient but not that personable. Several other servers helped our table so it as a great team effort. Chicken tortilla soup was excellent and plentiful. “All Green” Burger was the vegetarian option. I would not recommend because it fell apart. I ate it with a fork.

I am surprised that the owners have not figured out why no one sits inside this restaurant. It's not because the patrons enjoy the Florida heat and humidity out on the patio, it's because it is TOO loud inside. Really. The music was too loud, and the people screaming and shouting in the bar were too loud. I wanted to leave as soon as I sat down. The service, while friendly, was too slow, probably because the waitress was responsible for the one inside table we occupied and the tables on the patio.
The steak was over cooked. The squash "frosting" was too sweet. I won't go back. There are too many other good Americana restaurants in Tampa where you aren't assaulted by noise and your steak is cooked correctly.

Loved the food. Service could be improved: guests arrived at different times and the waiters did not give any time to look over drink menu before approaching and asking about a beverage. It got a bit annoying that each person hadnt even sat down yet. Other than that it was great and I will 100% return.
