    This was a birthday celebration and we were very pleased. Food was very good and we really appreciated that our waitress brought out our various courses at the appropriate time. Too often everything comes at once.

    We always have a good meal and great service. Onion rings and onion soup are outstanding. Steak is always cooked perfectly along with crisp fresh salad with the house dressing. The ice cream drinks really top off the meal. Definitely recommend.

    Excellent meal and very nice way to spend Valentines Day. I felt the tables were a little too close together. Booths are nice for privacy but aisle tables not so much.

    Doc Pierce’s is very old fashioned with a menu that reflects that. the food is excellent though, as long as one knows what to expect. That said, it is probably time for an overall cleanup and redecorating to take place.

    Wait staff was great. Restaurant was 1/2 full and maybe 5-6 at the bar. First drink took 10+ minutes to arrive. Food arrived fairly quickly and was excellent. Second drink took another 10 minutes to arrive. Waitress felt bad about this so she offered to comp our drinks. We had not complained. Very satisfied overall.

    The restaurant has a nice quiet 70s vibe but the food was very bland, overcooked and soggy. The server and host were nice. $100 for bland, boring food with hardly any seasoning.

    I ordered a burger & salad as my side. The salad came out first & it was decent... The burger was not good, the meat was tasteless. It came out of the kitchen on a white plate, just a burger on a bun sitting on the plate. The presentation was awful.. they could have at least put a piece of lettuce or a pickle on there with it! Our server was not friendly. I was very disappointed in this visit to Doc Pierces.

    This was our first time going to Docs for dinner. The place was dark, and the lights were low. We were seated pretty quickly after arriving, and the waitress was very nice taking our order shortly after sitting down. I had the Chicken Bress Rail. I wouldn't order the dish again. It lacked taste and was sitting in watered-down sauce. Chicken was overcooked, and the vegetables weren't cooked long enough. If I go back again, maybe I'll try a steak, but the party behind us sent their steak back, so maybe. Either way, it was an OK place to go out for dinner.

    We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and we decided to go to Doc’s. Everything was excellent from the time we walked in until we finished up our celebration. Our food was superb. It was a nostalgic night as we went to Doc Pierces when we first met back in 1993 so this establishment is dear to our hearts. Thank You Deborah, our server, for making this night very enjoyable and memorable.

    The food was very good. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The old-world charm is delightful. Our server was attentive and helpful. The noise of screaming child next to our table was a little annoying. That is not the restaurants fault, but should be considered when seating people.

    The menu item that I ordered, called “The Brass Rail”, came in an iron skillet with about an inch of liquid in the bottom. This dish is not supposed to look like soup, but it did. I ordered it with chicken instead of steak and the chicken was dry and tough. The whole dish was over seasoned and extremely salty from the soy sauce. It was pretty much inedible. My baked potato was cooked perfectly however. My husband’s meal, thankfully, was good. His steak was cooked perfectly and he loved the Shrimp Dejonghe that was part of his “Double Dose” entree. The service was very good.

    We were seated in an alcove at the front of the restaurant. It was quiet enough for our table of 6 to have a nice conversation without having to scream! The room was attractive, with a large stained glass window and stained glass light fixtures. The food was good and arrived in a short time. The waitress was attentive but not intrusive. Overall good experience. There is an attractive outdoor patio where we usually sit, but it was closed due to strong wind that day.
