“Great dining. Great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This is a great spot on Main street in Garden Grove. He has great sandwiches prime rib and great fish(say my wife. I don't eat fish). I love the burgers and prime rib. Or just drop in to have a beer and shoot the breeze.

“Fun place to gather with friends!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Stopped in for a work reunion gathering and loved the feel of the restaurant immediately.
You walk into the bar area which is small and cozy and perfect to mingle and chat. They also have a small bar area to sit at if you enjoy sitting at the bar and watching the game. The back dining area has really comfy booths and is very inviting and warm. Just enough light for the quiet dinner and romantic setting if that's what you're looking for. Doug was there to welcome us and he was quite the host describing all the food which made our mouth water!! I opted for the wedge salad with grilled chicken and loved it. My friend ordered the fried chicken and she loved it as well. We will def be coming back here again !!

“Enjoyed This Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Excellent service. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. Went out of her way to make us feel we were a welcome quest in their "home". The food was good and there was plenty of it. We got the nachos and the cheese is real cheese, the chili had hamburger and prime rib in it. It was cooked just right. This is a family owned business with a family feel (the family is in and out of the restaurant). It was quiet and enjoyable.

“A go to eatery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Doug's has become a regular stop for us for either a quick drink, family and neighbor night or special occasions. His take out and catering services are exceptional as well. We will remain loyal customers!

“Nice Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

We went there for my husband's high school reunion dinner. I had the ribs - very good! Moist, tender and they fell off the bone. They were so good, I couldn't leave what I couldn't eat and took home a doggy bag. They were great re-heated the next day. The service was very good and the ambiance was great. We'd go back the next time we're in California.
