This place was not crowded on a Friday night around 6:30 pm. I think perhaps because it is not on the strip and some visitors don't know about it, because the service is great and the food is really good. We had ribs, very good....More

The service here is the most atrocious thing I have ever experienced. The waiter that took everyone's order cursed at another guest and quit before putting in someone in our parties orders. Other waitors did a poor job of their job, except for two men.

We completely enjoyed the dining experience. The BBB sliced brisket is excellent, server was friendly & efficient. Doc's is one of the more flavoral restaurants in Branson. This will be on our next Branson to do list.
