Doc B Fresh Kitchen Restaurant--a Review




 


Before we even entered the restaurant the negatives started. They have a very small valet parking lot which we preferred not using and parked in the large Fresh Market lot. Before we even got into the restaurant the valet parkerasked us if we had parked in the Fresh Market parking lot, knowing we did, and telling us we could be towed. I said,smiling, "You would get us if that was starting to happen?" and he gave a definite "No!" Aside from valet parking there is very little choice though, I believe, they will have a garage in the building being built behind the restaurant which I am sure there will be a charge.


Next spent a minute of two trying to figure out how to get into the place! When you walk in get ready to be blasted by music and people in the tables near you shouting to be heard. Oh, yes, let's not forget the TV screens.


For some reason my immediate reaction was that I had stepped into the Tilted Kilt which just recently closed except the staff here were fully dressed!


Up front let me say the best and only good thing about this restaurant were the working crew, not the 3 'managers' , 2 men and 1 woman, in the hour or so we were there never went to any  tables to see how things were doing.


Our server Emma (who was training another server) was excellent from beginning to end and, which is so rare, seemed to like her job.


Is it a corporate rule that drinks that 'sweat' like water, diet Coke, Iced tea, etc., don't have a coaster put under them so the table gets wet or did they just run out of them?


As far as the food goes there was nothing special about the $14 traditional burger and the fries certainly didn't seem as if they were made in a 'fresh kitchen'. The Number 6, a fried breaded chicken sandwich, came unadorned with lifeless fried sweet potatoes.


I can see no reason to come back here, especially since this area is becoming a 'restaurant row' with many choices.


 


To end on a positive note, thanks Emma for your service.

Lucky you didn't get toad (RV Term). The tow companies have spotters in those sort of places and can't wait to pounce. And it's usually too late once the hook.

We have the same here but I think this valet parking is a concession and FM really doesn't care or are being welcoming or hope to get customers parking in their spots. :O)
