My salmon was wonderful, right from the grill to my plate, and not pre made and re warmed like so many other restaurants. I am a regular eater at Doc B's.

However, I have a strong issue with the red wine being served warm - very warm. Red wine should be served no greater than at room temperature, preferably 10 degrees cooler (not cold), BUT NOT WARM!!!
I had to switch to white wine instead which was served appropriately chilled.
As far as I am concerned, red wine drinkers should complain until they fix the situation.

I strongly recommend DocB's to everyone except to those who enjoy their glass of red. I like everything else about the restaurant so i will keep wining about this issue and from now on I plan to redwine myself up before going in again next week.

Fun atmosphere. Good service. Rice and tofu bowl was very good. Steak was fair. Veggie burger was awful, especially the sauce on it.

We loved this place. We had the amazing shaved Brussel sprout salad with salmon and a delicious hamburger. Ordered the guacamole with homemade sweet potato chips appetizer. My daughter and I love guacamole and this was probably the best we’ve ever had. The service was super friendly. We were served very quickly. This is definitely a place to come back to on our next Chicago trip.

We used to go to Doc B's more frequently because they have so many healthy choices. Unfortunately, this time, the noise level was way to loud and the service was not great. More than once we could not get our waiter's attention.

Servers were overwhelmed on a Friday evening. We had to remind them about water and drinks a couple of time. I ordered my dressing on the side but it came mixed in my bowl. We suggest taking notes when people order.
