Worst rib eye I have ever had. Chef needs training.

It is a real gem of a restaurant in the city. It is oddly located in the basement space of an old beautifully renovated Vaudeville theater, with a charming spiral staircase or round glass elevator to get down to the place. It was my first time eating dinner there, having enjoyed several luncheons. Overall, it was a fine dinner experience.

I had higher expectations for the food and ambience. Based on pictures and the menu I was expecting a quiet, little more sophisticated setting. There was no soft music playing and the noise level was very high. We had set out for a special date night and we had a hard time hearing each other across the table. We enjoyed our salads, soup and dessert was amazing. Our main course was only average in both taste and presentation. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. We will give it another try but probably lunch next time and hopefully on the patio. I wish them much success.

Lovely, relaxing venue. Interesting entrees. Lobster bisque was fabulous. Loved having the avocado fries and avocado blt. Nice to walk here after visiting the Hyde museum.

Second time here and once again an outstanding experience, all the way around. I enjoyed the same meal (chicken jambalaya) and it was, once again, fabulous ... and now it's consistently fabulous. French onion soup was great, as well. Open Table does not offer enough stars that this establishment has earned!

I would recommend with reservations. While the person I was with had a very good scallop dinner, the lobster bisque I had was much too salty. The pear salad that I had in addition to the soup was good, as was the crab cake appetizer. Some of the downsides: took a long time before anyone came to our table, probably 15 minutes. No menus, no water, etc. After eating our crab cake appetizer, the waitress took the plate and my fork and knife, but failed to bring me a clean knife to use to butter the bread, which came late. The waitress also dropped off the bill before we had finished eating and then checked back shortly to ask if I’d taken care of it yet. Ambiance is quite nice, quiet even when busy, and pleasing to look around. So, with reservations, I’d recommend Doc’s, but be prepared for a wait staff that may not be up to par and for food that may not be consistent in quality.

A warm and welcoming atmosphere, with excellent and attentive service. The Wine List was ample, as were the serving portions. Entrees were intriguing and creative. We will definitely return, and are already recommending to friends and associates.

We had scallops and salmon, both of which were cooked very well. The servings of side dishes were large and did not necessarily complement each other. The pear, basil, goat chese and balsamic flatbread pizza was exceptional with amazing crust and flavors. We will definitely return.

I reviewed your menu on line and was very impressed .I immediately made a reservation for 2 through Open Table. We were seated as we walked in the door, not invited to the bar like most restaurants.Service was terrific and attentive by Rachel ,food was presented properly and piping hot,not sitting under the lights.Your restaurant is highly recommended and cannot wait to come back with friends,Keep up the good work.

When I called to confirm my reservation they said they did not have one from Open Table. Yes I got an email confirmation from Open Table. Waitress read specials to us but never stated the prices. Also never asked if we wanted dessert. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

On the fence for a recommendation here, food was comparable to better restaurants however ambiance left a lot to be desired, flooring, lighting, table all contributed to a subpar dining experience.

Four times I have dined at Doc's and all 4 times dinner was exceptional. Twice I was with a group of 7 and all meals came out at the same time, the hot dishes were hot and the cold dishes were cold! All 7 enjoyed their meals - quite a feat, I'd say! Service is always good with servers very attentive, but not too attentive. I rated the ambiance as "good" because I think the lighting is a little too bright. Tone it down a couple notches and right on.

Our dinner was lovely. There was a great duck dish, hanger steak, a shrimp/prawn dish and jambalaya at our table. Half salads were big! Glad we came with a good appetite. Bread pudding was yummy too.

We went to Docs because we were seeing a show upstairs. The service was outstanding- pleasant, friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and creative, and being vegan it was nice to enjoy an entree that was more than a salad. My husband loved his beer. We will go back.

Prime rib was outstanding, scallops a bit salty, but cooked well. Ok wine list. Large portions with small portions on most entrees. Mixed drinks were just ok for our group. Nice atmosphere with friendly service. Will definitely go back.

The helpings were large, but overall I was underwhelmed. In terms of ambiance, the lighting over the main seating area of the restaurant was direct overhead lighting from a cold-bluish LED light source. They would have been better served by use of warmer and indirect lighting to better complement the décor. The food was plentiful but uninspired. The crab Cobb salad had abundant crab meat that over the top of the salad; but the meat was rather flavorless and felt out-of-place. I always enjoy an Impossible Burger, but their preparation and presentation was drier and more bland than Impossible Burgers I have eaten elsewhere. I cannot comment on the my companion's meals, but no one felt particularly inspired to offer/share tastes and much of the food went unconsumed (speaking more toward the quantity than quality).

Located in downtown Glens Falls, this is a gem. From the moment we walked in, you can see a lot went into renovating this building. Beautiful and tastefully decorated. We walked down a spiral staircase to Doc’s (beautiful glass elevator is available). Once there, beautiful, intimate seating. Our server was friendly and quietly attentive as we were there with friends to chat. Let’s just say, you can make a meal off the house salad. Huge portion, filled with raisins, nuts, cheese and fresh salad ingredients. Our main courses were all excellent, most impressive was that they use as many local ingredients as possible. Even the smaller portions were enough for all of us. We were all very happy that they do offer that option. The chef is very creative with the presentations and use of ingredients. We did not order any mixed drinks, just beer and wine. No one had any room for dessert. Wish we had, the menu looked delicious. Upstairs over Doc’s is a small event facility called the Park Theater. We were lucky to go and enjoy a night of 80’s music with plenty of room for dancing. They do need a few more small tables around the outside of the dance floor, that would be my only negative comment. I know we look forward to more activities being held there and are already planing another visit.

The food was awesome. We all raved over our meals. Rib eye, salmon, and shrimp stir fry. So tasty and all was cooked to perfection. The only complaints are the booth seating is a little tight, and the décor needs some color. TOO dark and not enough colorful local art. Since you are supporting local farmers, you should add art from local artists. Need flowers on tables, and candles that work. Otherwise a beautiful renovation on the building, and once again, the food was not a disappointment. We will definitely go back again. It was SUPERB.

Doc’s is a fantastic restaurant with excellent food and great ambiance. Their salads are outstanding, and I highly recommend the pear salad. I ordered the New York Strip for my entree and it was definitely closer to medium/medium well, rather than the medium rare that I ordered. But it was still very tasty and the veggies were spot on. We had a really nice time here.

Word of mouth told us this was "must try" restaurant, so we did, with friends.
Menu is quite extensive. They have smaller, and normal portions of many items.
I ordered a smaller salad and know that I said small short rib dinner. My portion was huge and I mentioned this to server. She told me this dish only comes in one size. I question why she didn't tell me that when I ordered.

We will go back and I will be certain to read the menu very carefully.

The atmosphere was elegant, with the spiral staircase taking us elegantly down below street level so there was no noise from the street. The menu offered a nice selection without too many choices, and they all looked tasty. The food was well- prepared and delicious, and the cocktails were too. This was our first time there, and we will definitely come back again!

We came to hear Laura Roth perform that evening and decided to have dinner at Doc's before the show. To say that we're glad we did is an enormous understatement! Everything about dinner was amazing. Dinner was exceptional. Our server, Paul, was all that one could wish - polite, knowledgeable and appropriately attentive. Our meal was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. We would definitely recommend it. Thank you to everyone involved for a wonderful evening.
