Fabulous!! It had been a while since we had been to Docs and we loved it. Atmosphere was great, food was fantastic and service was fantastic. They even called after I made my reservation and said the only space they had available was outside on the enclosed patio with heaters. Since it was warm the night we were going, I told them that was fine. They ended up giving us a table inside anyway. All around a great experience.
Excellent food and service!
We Love this place!
Paige and Darrin make it great! This was my birthday brunch with family.
One of my favorite places on Brookside! I must confess, I've been several times, but only for brunch! Brunch is great! Accommodating for special occasions and pretty friendly staff.
My wife and I had the special (bacon wrapped, stuffed dates) as an appetizer and then split the Chicken Jambalaya, and finished it off with some Date Bread Pudding. Every course was delicious and interesting. I also had a Doc's Old Fashioned which didn't really stand-out but was, instead, exactly what I would have expected from an old fashsioned. Our waiter was attentive but not invasive and quite helpful. The atmosphere was nice, however, we got seated right next to a window on a rather cold night and we could feel a bit of that cold coming in.
Great food and service always!! Doc's never disappoints!!! Love the tuna tartar😁
Doc's is my favorite restaurant in town. This is my husband and I's go to spot. So when I was in charge of arranging our monthly girls night, I didn't think twice about choosing my favorite place! However, I was very disappointed. There was a party of about 40 people, which made our experience subpar. The food and drinks were great as always, but the service was not great. It was very slow, probably because of the large party. It felt as if we were right in the middle of the party but only we weren't invited. Kind of awkward. I know our server did all she could but I know she was also helping with the party, so that took up most of her attention. We could barely have a conversation due to noise level. And not to mention, walking into the restaurant with "30 AF" balloons to great you, was a little silly. I think either rent out the entire restaurant, don't do parties that large OR just call the other parties that made reservations to at least give them a heads up. At that point, it could be up to the party to either stay or book elsewhere. I was very uncomfortable in a restaurant that is usually the most comfy date night spot in town!
Restaurant was way too crowded New Year's eve, almost claustrophobic. The table of 18 on the bottom level was over the top. Service staff and guests around the bar had difficulty moving around. At midnight the guests at the bar got complementary champagne but our server never brought the champagne to our table. That was odd. Enjoyed the music.
As always, the food and atmosphere were wonderful! The holiday decorations and the cozy fireplace were wonderful as well. Our server was very attentive and she helped make the evening perfect! My wife had the sea scallops on the portabello mushroom cap with cheese grits and I had the Grouper with asparagus and both dinners were prepared to perfection including their presentation on the plates. Our compliments to the chef!
We were seated immediately with our reservation and our server was at our table with a smile and took our beverage order of a half bottle of Seghisio Sangiovese wine (excellent). We split a house wedge salad which was delicious. Then we ordered our entrees of charbroiled sea scallops on portobello mushroom with cheese and jumbo gulf shrimp on cheese grits. We shared our entrees and both were served hot and delicious! We decided to take a bread pudding dessert home and it was great too! They were very busy and the servers were up to the task. We love Doc’s!!
The food was fine, the staff was friendly. The menu is limited but full of decent choices to make a party of 6 all find just what they wanted. The space is small so I would not recommend for larger than parties of four. We were seated in a half table half booth by the front door and next to the singer and piano player. The space seemed a little too small for the entertainment. They drowned out the ability to hear anything else.
The food was excellent and the service matched it.
The food was delicious but the meat on my beef tenderloin nachos was cold. The oysters on the half shell were very small but tasty. I would have preferred that they not serve them out of season instead of serving tiny ones for the same price as the regular sized oysters you get in season.
Great food, beer and wine options were wonderful too. Everyone in my group really liked the food. Would absolutely come back.
Food was really good. We are from New Orleans and the oysters were fresh and tasty.
