We went to Doc's for lunch and it was just ok. Cool atmosphere though. Food was nothing special. Would go back to try different food options.

“Not Shorty Smalls”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Waited for over 30 minutes for our food the only thing that had to cooked was a burger. Party of 4. 2 kids 2 adults. Had to find someone to get my check. Also believe that my daughters grilled cheese belong to the table next to us. She ordered applesauce and she got both. They said " we put fries on by mistake so we just gave her both". When I just watched them take a grilled cheese back that the table next to us didn't order and sent back. Don't waste your money.

“Wouldn't let me order what I wanted”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

First of all, this is not the place that we came to 3 years ago with an awesome menu with several items. This menu had 2 pages. Being in the mood for the fried clams I had once enjoyed here a few years ago, nothing on the current menu sounded super great. So I decided I would just order the child's chicken strips dinner. The description said "our world famous chicken strips served with French fries or apple sauce." When the waitress arrived to take our order I stated that I wanted the chicken strips, but asked if I could purchase a baked potato for extra instead of the fries or apple sauce. She immediately got a tone with me and told me no I cannot have that. she then added that "technically" she cannot even serve me the chicken strips because I'm not a child. So I asked well where is the adult portion of these "world famous chicken strips" in which she proceeded to tell me there was no adult portion.... Wondering why they are world famous yet you can only eat them if you are 12???? So i quickly decided on the catfish dinner which was a decent meal, just much too big of a portion for what I was in the mood for. The food was okay- we will just probably never eat here again. Go to Shorty Smalls for barbecue.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Ate on a wednesday evening at 6:30 and we almost had the place to ourselves. When the parking lot is almost empty, it makes you wonder if you should go in. Food was ok but I have had better at many places in town. The people working there appeared to be very bored. And to me it was all over priced. I live in Branson and found no reason to return.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

My husband and I visited. I was so happy to see smoked turkey on the menu since I can't eat beef or pork. It was delicious with or without the yummy bbq sauce. My husband did have the pork and was similarly impressed. The staff was friendly and quick. We would definitely visit again.
