Doc B's Restaurant + Bar - Gold Coast
We eat here frequently. Food is always great. Today a special was a lobster rioll. It wS very small. And bland. First time I had something disappointing here. Not worth $23.
We went for a late evening light dinner, and the service ruined our chance at enjoying our meal. We were seated on the patio, ordered water, and still didn’t have anything to drink after our appetizer of grilled artichoke had been served. We tried to flag the server down, but he was too busy visibly counting his tips to see us. Apparently someone hadn’t left enough, because he seemed furious, and was slamming plates and silverware around after that. I had a house salad, which would have been good, except that it was drenched in salad dressing (should have ordered on the side), and the avocado that I requested be added wasn’t there. My friend ordered a bowl, and his Thai sauce also drenched his meal. And it was very sweet, but not at all spicy, as described on the menu. By this time we definitely needed our water refilled, but no one checked on us or asked if we needed anything. Overall such a disappointing experience.
In town for 5 days. Loved this place so much we visited both locations. Best meal, music, art work, service we’ve experienced in a long time.
Terrific service with attentive wait staff. Delicious salads and guacamole with chips. I highly recommend Doc B’s for any occasion.
Very noisy and food was fair.
Always great service and great food at Doc B’s. For a reliable lunch in a friendly atmosphere you can’t beat Doc B’s. And conveniently located across the street from Bloomingdales.
Fantastic meal, great service, perfect for a relaxing evening while out of town.
Our party of 4 all enjoyed the bowls. Ahi tuna on rice, on low mein and other bowls were delicious with a healthy feel. Plenty of food, great service, and good beer selection for us beer lovers! We will be back.
We had a good time. The food and service were much improved over our last visit.
All was good but was disappointed they didn't have any gluten free desserts.
Drake was a very good waiter. He was engaging, checked in on us without too much disruption and recommended things on the menu. It was a special birthday and he added to the festive atmosphere.
The food was fabulous!
The fries were incredibly flavorful and the steak was amazing
The service is very slow. Be prepared to wait quite awhile to get your food once ordered. The fries were cold and server did not return to the table to check on us until it was too late to let her know. The drink that was ordered took at least 15 mins to arrive and we were never offered a refill (Diet Coke). All in all, not a good value for a $120 lunch. Been here many times and it's consistently the same issues.
The service and food were outstanding. Lots of variety to please our crowd.
It was fine - food is always good and service was good. Tables r a bit close but that’s understandable
It was okay, and nothing amazing. Average service. When we asked for recommendations they said everything, fries were the best part and they were nothing fancy. Great outdoor seating out front.
Always a yummy meal with many choices for
All kinds of diners meat eaters veggie eaters
Can’t wait for nice weather so we can eat outside
Only complaint is it is super noisy
Great happy hour tapas and drinks! Will definitely do this again!
A surprisingly "neighborhood-y" spot in the middle
of the (over-touristed? overly commercial?) Gold Coast. The menu is nicely composed and offers a good balance of choices. Every dish we've had (pizza, shrimp and Avo salad, bowls with salmon or chicken added, fish, burgers, and soup) has been awfully good; there are a good number more choices we will also try. The service always seems to be appropriately attentive and warm. Servers take pride in all they serve.
The restaurant is pretty-fresh and comfortably decorated; it's backed by a nice looking open and slightly elevated kitchen.
We had walked past Doc B's without noticing it before--then my SIL introduced us. We go there now whenever when we are tired from our workdays but want the ease, health and freshness of a well-prepared, flavorful and yet homey meal. In short everything tastes "real," but some nights better than my own (I do like to cook and bake.) We leave feeling well-cared for.
It was outstanding
Timeliness and quality of food was great. Server was not great. Tremendous uncomfortable pressure to leave I would assume so he could go home...as there were open tables and. I wait. It ruined the experience
Nice besides the food.
Service is the best here!!!
Tonight we split the entree salad of shrimp, jicama, greens and avocado and a margherita pizza. Both excellent and ample for two--that is perfect for my husband and I. Polite and caring service. We've been before and will go again! The menu is limited but everything we've had has been awfully good. Tonight I would say the sound track was intrusively loud and this the 3 stars for ambiance. Otherwise a very very pleasant and comfortable environ-typically 4 stars.
Love this fast and fresh spot. Wish they either changed the menu or had more seasonal menu items. A new salad would be ideal!
I don't recommend restaurants to friends/family. (Having to write a review that is 50 characters is unusual.)
Great spot for a quick healthy lunch! I loved being able to sit by the open windows and enjoy the summer weather. The salads are awesome here & I LOVE the avocado pizza - sounds weird, but a MUST try!! The hosts are friendly and our server was very kind as we asked a lot of questions about the menu.
Service was great and the food was DELICIOUS!! Great deals and ambiance for Mother's Day. Will DEFINITELY be back!
Cozy place, modern decor, good food. I had the cajun chicken. It had good flavor, but there was no heat. My wife is Keto and gluten-free; she had the stir fry with quinoa and loved every bite.
Great restaurant. Somewhat fast and fresh ingredients. Great service. Delicious guacamole and sweet potato chips. Wish they offered a seasonal salad bc they tend to get repetitive when you eat there often.
When we entered, the front room staff was more than helpful . They hellped my husband up the stairs, held the door and told us they would help us use the elevator to exit.
We had a table of 6 for lunch on a Sunday. Specialty drinks were very good. Food was great. Service was attentive but they were definitely rushing us and the restaurant was not busy. The waitress took plates with food still on them twice. We called her on it once and she returned the guacamole and chips. The servers should know better.
Great food and service. Few vegetarian options tho
Fast, friendly service. Food cooked as requested. All the meals were delicious!
This a busy place! When I arrived a few minutes early, the hostess seated me right away. Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and professional even though he was really busy. Our food was fantastic - healthy and delicious. The menu is creative and the portions are generous. We had a very fine Prosecco considering the reasonable price. I always struggle on the Gold Coast and in Streeterville to think of a place to go for lunch. Not anymore, I’ll be back to Doc B’s often! I highly recommend this place!
Great food and wonderful atmosphere.One of my absolute favorites!
Ribs are excellent! Good healthy menu choices that are also delicious.
Noise in that restaurant continues to be really bad. Full of people at 6 pm yet they had stereo music blaring. Some music with no lyrics in the background would be one thing but that made no sense. Server was really great and food is always consistently good
My meal was great! The right amount of food. Our waitress was very attentive. We would definitely dine here again.
