“Host Fantasy Football draft here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Docs is a little tricky to find, located on a side-street just East of I-275 on 7 Mile Road. It has a huge parking lot that is typically full around dinner-time. They have valet parking if you don't want to mess around.

Lots of TV's inside. Can't guarantee you would get sound with it, as music tends to be playing instead. This is more of a social bar than a place where you gather to focus on watching the big game.

I highly recommend this place for hosting your fantasy football draft. You have your own large, private room with TV's and a personal waiter/waitress. Holding private parties is also recommended here as well.

I do not recommend Docs if you prefer a smaller, quiet, or dark sports bar.

Food: They have an extensive menu. They have typical bar-food. If you like the food at an Applebee's or Chile's, you'll find the food at Docs acceptable.

“Typical sports bar, but with added Casino”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Located close to my hotel, it was a convenient place to gather for a nightcap after dinner. I didn't eat here, so I can't comment on the menu though it looked like they had plenty to offer. The atmosphere was very loud with lots of TV's playing at full volume, plus the in-room chatter. There is a poker room adjoining the main bar and an outside patio. Service was friendly and prompt. One major negative (in my opinion) is there was a lot of smoke, both inside and out. So if you don't mind a loud, smoky atmosphere, then this is a great place to gather. I'm sure there are many other sports bars that offer a better alternative.

“Great servers, good food, good portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

What else can be said? I have never left unhappy, you can get anything and it's good but I love the chicken marsala (best in the world) and the pizza, salmon, and sandwiches are always good. Wait staff is hot, young, and thin, makes me look bad!!!!! but love them anyway....

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

My Wife and I went to Docs two nights ago. The food is great, prices were good and plenty of tvs. We went to watch the Olympics and our only complaint was that they were playing music instead of the nbc feed, but that's tough to find anywhere.

“Generic Sports Bar w/ bigger menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Menu had a lot more offerings than the typical sports bar. The place is larger than most. Food was decent.
