went from worst experience to the best – Ok, so for starters.. I just moved to the atlanta area last april. I actually work about 5 minutes from doc's. I've drove by the place atleast 100 times but never stopped in. Well, i was living in the downtown area and just got a condo down the street from docs. I decided to come in for a drink one night after work. it was a long stressful day at work and thought a drink would help. well my server (janice) was terrible! lol thats just a nice way to describe how i felt i was being treated. she came to the table and seemed a bit overwhelmed. she asked for my id, which is very understandable. i told her to come back because my purse was a mess and that i would have it ready. before i could even find it she had a manager come to the table asking if there was an issue with my id???? really???? lol i actually thought she was going to be nice. well i still was being nice. even with this bad experience left her a 9 dollar tip. decided to come back with my id in hand. i just decided to come back last friday night. the server i had this time was cierra. it was me and 4 other friends. i can actually say, she is the reason i will be coming back to doc's on a regular basis. she automatically came to the table was very polite, asked how our night was going and initiated conversation and then asked for our id's. she was super busy, but not once were our drinks empty and not once did she give any bit of attitude. our food was amazing, service was prompt and cierra i can honestly say has become my favorite servers since i moved to atlanta. she had a very positive attitude and i enjoyed that she tries to build a relationship with her customers even when she doesnt know them. it made me feel at home. so i can say overall i appreciate the service at docs and the only reason im giving 3 stars is because of my 1st experience. cierra deserves 5 stars though
Cool Place – I recently went to Doc's and what I appreciated about it was that it was a lot like Cheers. The staff actually knew their customers by name. I thought that was cool. I also liked their chicken wings. Prices are affordable, and that's important in today's economy. I'd recommend Doc's to my friends.
I would recommend Doc's anytime – Enu's review below does not in any way describe the great experience I had ad Doc's. First of all, I've been there several time. I've never seen a skinner red-headed manager. The manager I've always dealt with has had black hair and a beard. And I have always found him to be professional and polite. Doc's has always honored the coupons I've taken there too. The food is good. The drinks are even better. The servers are nice. There used to be a server there named Elizabeth who was really good. I wish she would come back. She did a great job. But the other servers do a good job too. On weekends they have live music, and that's fun. And I like playing pool on their pool table. I always recommend Doc's to my friends. Now I will tell them not to pay any attention to Enu.
DO NOT GO!!! – WASTE OF TIME!!! My wife & I went there on Friday night 03/23/12 because we had a restaraunt dot com coupon $25 off of a purchase of at least $35 (Only stipulations on coupon was had to be dine in, use at one time & No Alcohol - There was no mention of days of week & it stated No expiration date). We went in and first off the place is disgusting and smoke filled. Service was terrible. We sat at a table and got our own menus. 10-15 minutes later our waitress arrived (No complaints towards her - She was new so it wasn't smooth but she wasn't rude or anything). We showed her the coupon right away and ordered our food since we had a lot of time to look over the menu. She placed the order (at least I think she did) about 15-20 mins. went by and the waitress came back & said that the manager wanted to see the coupon. I gave it to her and a couple mins. later the manager (Skinny redneck white guy with glasses) came to our table and said that they recently severed there relationship with restaraunt dot com and the will not honor the coupon. He also said even though it doesnt state no weekends use they would not honor it on the weekend as well. I looked at him confused and said so your not going to honor this and he said no and walked away!!! Great Customer Service!!! We will never give them our business Ever!!! Do Not Waste Your Time With This Crappy Place!!! We waited about 45 mins. total just to be told that we can not use a coupon that we bought off a site that they promote off of. To make matters worse we got home and got an email from Restaraunt dot com asking us how our experience was at Docs basically meaning he punched in the code from the coupon trying to claim we used it so they basically tried/are trying to steal from Restaraunt dot com. We have already put in a claim with restaraunt dot com so they dont give them the money they shouldnt get.
Go To Doc's When You're In Atlanta – I recently visited the Atlanta area, and a friend invited me to Doc's. I thought we were just going to a smoky bar. Oh, no. If you're familiar with the TV show Cheers, then you have an idea of how Doc's is. Everybody knows everybody else. The owners are professional and courteous. The bartenders know their skills. The food is delicious! And on weekends, the music adds a casual, relaxing ambiance. Sometimes they have games where customers can win prizes, like free drinks. It's a great place. Go there if you're ever in Atlanta.
What a great time! – My husband and I have noticed Doc's on Hwy 41 for years and went in during trivia last Tuesday night. We LOVED it! Our server was delightful, brought us our drinks (and what potent cocktails they were!) quickly, and provided excellent descriptions of menu items. My husband had lemon pepper wings, and I had the medium hot buffalo wings. Both were super delicious. The trivia contest was lively and good-natured. The MC periodically asked a question "outside of the game" that anyone in the bar could answer. The first person to get it right won a free drink! We've recommended Doc's to several of our friends, and we cannot wait to go back there!
Zero Stars! – Martin is the most pompus, inconsiderate, POS I have ever met in my life. He treats his patrons terribly. It is nice to have a bar you can go to and smoke inside & have good drinks but with a @$$hole like that I believe drinking rot gut wine at a MARTA station bathroom in downtown would be a much better experience. Signed B.W. He knows who I am.
Martin is the Rudest Man on the Earth! – My boyfriend and I called in a to-go order last week. When we got there, 30 minutes later, they had not turned the order in so we sat and had a drink at the bar. There was a girl sitting next to me and we started chatting. She was very nice and having a good time. The girl ordered a shot of tequila. Within minutes, the manager, Martin, rushed up and demanded she pay her tab and leave. I asked him to call her a taxi, which he ignored my request. My boyfriend also requested that he call her a taxi. He ignored him at first and then told him she was on her own. Martin completely embarrassed this girl for no apparent reason and had no concern if she got home safely. I cannot believe he is in charge of a bar/restaurant. He should be fired. Our food, once it left the bar, tasted like an ashtray from all the smoke it had absorbed from that bar. The place is a $hithole and is managed by the rudest man I have EVER encountered.
HORRIBLE! – First and foremost, THEY HAVE ROACHES! This is definitely a neighborhood hole in the wall. The service was bad and the manager is an a**hole! The food wasn't even good. This was my first and last time at this spot. I gave one star because a rating of 0 wasn't allowed.
Never happen again – Yuck. The waitress suggested the buffet, but everything was the same color - beige. Popcorn shrimp, mashed potatoes, corn, macaroni. We ordered a couple of oyster po boys and got soft hoagie rolls with 3 oysters. I asked for cocktail sauce, tomato, etc. and got "The stuff is on the table. You DO know how to make it, DON'T YOU?"
WRONG PLACE...THIS IS DOCS FOODS AND SPIRITS....WE DONT HAVE BUFFET OR OYSTER PO BOYS!! come see us im sure you will love OUR food.
