Doris & Ed prices are relatively high but the food is good and the view is excellent. The service was outstanding. The experience is worth trying.

Does not matter what you order, it's all great! We make this our anniversary place to celebrate every year. We tend to visit at least 3-4 times a year and have never been disappointed.

The first time we ate there, my husband and I had a marvelous evening. We have yet to ever repeat that experience. Either out food is cold, overcooked and they are out of what we want. It is a very expensive evening, so we have decided to not go there anymore...too many other great restaurants in the area.

Drinks at the bar were good, service was friendly and prompt and the snacks on the bar a nice touch. Our dinner waitress was also... More
