We have 2 Semi-Private dining rooms available for large parties located in the back portion of our restaurant. While most of the restaurant is laid out "shotgun" style, these two rooms open up to a spacious area with a contemporary yet rustic feel.

it was way to loud , server not friendly, told me I had 0.00 on my gift cards (although I knew better) I told her to get the manager to check it finally came back out and said both had money on them, food was just okay

Food is actually pretty good. Our server was fair. Ambience is poor. There is a front dining room with the bar, and a back dining room. Connecting these two rooms is basically a very wide hall with open viewing access to the kitchen. There are about 7 tables in this area. Two or three of these tables are directly across from the open kitchen. Despite making reservations ahead of time, we were seated at one of these tables. The noise level of clanging dishes and cooking utensils is loud and constant. It was pretty miserable. I could not wait to leave. I would not eat here again, despite food that was decent and at a fair price.

I am a repeat customer of The smokehouse and this visit had exceptional service. After arriving an hour earlier than the reservation, we were seated promptly with no question. The food was as expected and excellent. The service was great though the server was busy with some large tables.
I describe the restaurant as having excellent smoked meats, great cocktails, but to me, the stars of the show are the side dishes.

We've dined at Doctor Crows several times, the food is always good. The pulled pork and beef brisket are some of the best in the city. Our complaint is with the service. We feel invisible when we go. The server takes our order and we don't see them again until we ask for the check. This has happened on each of our visits.

This is the second time eating at Doc Crows. I would have liked the seating to be more comfortable. The booths really need to be fixed and that took away from a more positive experience. Service was ok. The food came a bit rushed with apps and main course running into each other. I would have liked our wait person to have noticed that without us telling her we were not ready for our main course. Still, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the food good without pretense. That makes me happy.

I arrived early for my reservation and took a stool at the Bar. The bartender was very knowledgeable of their vast Bourbon collection. He served me 3 taste and all 3 were hits.
The Oysters Rockefeller were good but a bit small only 4. I ordered the pork chops with greens, the chops were crispy and juicy. The mashed potatoes were not seasons and the greens had a tad bit too much vinegar for my liking. overall a good dinner and service was good.

Fantastic local place by the YUM center and downtown activities. Oysters, beers and a wide selection of bourbons and wines. The food is comfort but with interesting twists of flavor. Appetizers to share or whole dinners and super salads. Always a place to stop in whenever in town.

Unfortunately our drinks came out 20 minutes after our food had arrived. The food was cold as if it was sitting out waiting for us to be ready for our next course. One of our party had a dairy allergy and received butter on their bread another one of our group members had to receive their soup three times in order to get it right. We spoke to the manager regarding the situation. She listened but was not very accommodating. The only perk was our server who was outstanding, personable, and tried to help with all of the issues.
The restaurant wasn't even busy and it is obvoius why.

We stopped for lunch while travelling through and it was an outstanding experience. I had the spinach salad with added smoked pork, and my husband had the pulled porm tacos . Both were outstanding . We are planning to stop again on our return trip.

This place was hopping at dinner time. We were so glad we had made reservations. We were seated promptly in a nice booth. Service was quick and friendly. They had a few good local beer selections. The BBQ was fantastic and we both recommend the brisket. Mac and cheese side was very good as well. Unbelievable hot apple pie with locally made vanilla ice cream. YUM!

The staff was incredibly accommodating. I had family traveling from Chicago for a wedding. We had a short time for lunch before we needed to get on the road in order to make it to Woodford Reserve for our tour. The staff got our food and checks ready promptly. I cannot thank them enough!

Outstanding Service and Food! Our server Christin was very friendly, knowledgeable and catered to our every need. The portions are huge, and the variety of choices offered makes you want to order multiple items. We will be back soon and I will conquer The Bubba!

I was actually expecting a bit more. I was originally going for the bourbon but heard the food was pretty good. Not really much of a "bar" as the bar area is fairly small. I really think you should look at Doc's as a restaurant first and foremost. In that regard, the food was fine but nothing special. Service was a bit slow and no real assistance on food or drink. The restaurant is configured strangely. Very thin and long with what I view as 3 different rooms front to back. I would definitely recommend the front bar area versus other rooms. Didn't hate the place but nothing to really remember about it either. Worth trying to form your own opinion.

We flew in from Boston MA to go on Bourbon tours and check out distilleries. We made a reservation based on the extensive and special bourbon list they advertise online. Sad to say they didn't have atleast 10 bourbons we tried to order. Nothing special about there list, just everyday bourbons you can get in Boston. Food was decent if you like southern BBQ. Total bummer if your looking for a good bourbon list though.

I have always enjoyed Doc Crows but during this last visit I was wildly underwhelmed. The service was incredibly slow and one dish at the table was sub par.
We waited an abnormally long amount of time for a bottle of wine that we ordered and my water glass was always empty.
We were also sat in a very inconvenient location. I booked for a party of 5 and they sat us in a rather small booth with a chair on the end. I was the only female and my male friends are not small. Only one of them is under 6ft. tall. It was a tight squeeze and because we were next to the window two in my party were constantly hot. When I asked to be moved, they told me they didn't have anything open and I would have to wait for something to become free. The way this was handled felt rude. Don't put a party of 5 at a tiny booth with a chair.
Food was good but the St. Louis dry rub ribs were overcooked.
My party spent a lot of money here. We ordered 2 bottles of wine and 48(!) oysters. We were there to celebrate a reunion of friends. I just wish Doc Crows would have stepped up their service to fit the occasion.
This was the second time I dined here. ...
This was the second time I dined here. The first time, my wife and I were seated up front and everything was good. This time, I was in a party of 4 and we were seated in the very back of the restaurant. The noise level of this renovated warehouse made it difficult to carry on a conversation. The food was very good, but our waitress tended to get lost for long periods of time.
