Personally, I think the sauces are the most exciting part of this restaurant (sun dried tomato pesto is the best). I expected the blackened chicken to be juicy but overall the dish was not disappointing!

We took our niece to Dr. Grubbs in Claremont. We found the menu to have several appealing selections. When it came, we were amazed at full plates with delicious flavors. We ordered 'The Doc's Herb Chicken' and our niece had a salad that was not on the printed menu. The food is healthy and attractively presented. The restaurant is small... More

So, had been wanting to try this place for some time now and was able to get there for a nice lunch today. This is a VERY VERY small space and a pretty limited menu. It uses a bit of the Counter burger chain model where you select you meat (protein) then a side and then a sauce... the have... More

Stopped in for dinner; our first time here. Order at counter, food is brought to you, bus your own table afterwards. We got blackened salmon with rice and grilled salmon with couscous. Sides were very generous, fish was well-prepared and tasty, though mine was a little bit undercooked in the center. Very friendly, small place (7 tables). Hot day, warm... More

Dr. Grubbs is a wonderful, healthy alternative to fast food. This small restaurant offers up several different types of protein, sauces, and sides, you choose the combinations, all made to order. I often get the herb marinated chicken with aioli sauce, and salad or rice or broccoli. At times the chicken quality varies (sometimes too dry, sometimes too grilled), but... More

My family loves this place. Great, wholesome, high quality food that is a great substitute for good home cooking. When our days run long and we have to get the kids to practice and everywhere else, Dr. Grubbs is like our home cook. Huge portions, great quality, tasty sauces and awesome sides. We like to get 2-3 different combos for... More

Stopped by after walking into Claremont while visiting the colleges with the family. We each ordered something different and with one exception thought it was all very good. I had a blackened chicken with potatoes and broccoli, my wife had a salad with blackened salmon, my daughter had a salad and my oldest son had blackened salmon with potatoes. All... More

Was not sure about trying Dr. Grubbs but I really wanted something healthy so I decided we'd just do it - Thank Goodness we did!!! Yes, this is a very casual, yet adorable, place. You order at the bar then sit down. Staff was super friendly and helpful, explained all of the combinations of plates, etc. Ordering is simple -... More
