Doc's is essentially what you can come to expect from Kelowna now. Maximum occupancy in minimum space, thug style "Security" staff who add more chaos than they reduce and seem to have used cheat sheets to pass serving it right. There is nothing special about this place, the historical theme is about as deep or as genuine as a Red Robins.

Food can be good and can be bad, limited menu.
Does bring in some great music but the venue is horrible for listening to a show and being with people, the music is often garbled and you essentially cannot talk.

Not a horrible place but if it wasn't in downtown Kelowna it probably wouldn't survive, nothing exceptional or special to recommend it. Fills itself with people, gets em drunk, ships them out, lather rinse and repeat.

Just don't seem to get out as much as we used to but when we did, Docs always had a friendly staff and good Pub food.

Good vibes at Doc's but don't go past 9 if you want to have a conversation with anybody as it gets very loud. They have live music often and snowboard, skate, surf videos playing on the tvs. It is a bit more expensive then other pubs, if you get a pint and nachos that will run you at least 25 bucks. The nachos are massive though and super cheesy!

With a blend of great decor, some live entertainment every now & again (more so during the summer), great variety of beers & quality spirits and a nice sidewalk patio. Good variety of food, tasty and fresh. Decent service and most times always pleasant. If visiting Kelowna, well worth stopping in.

Cool old building. Excellent service!!! Friendly place. This is a place where you go to meet people if you wish on a busy night. Saturday is a great night to go for it to be super busy but every other night is great too. Wish they had more and bigger t.vs for UFC, though.
