Good food and large portions. Place order and pick up at counter self serve venue. Clean and inviting. Interesting decor. Staff not interested in doing more that required. Orders do not come out very fast, however it is worth the wait. Nice salad bar. Refillable drinks.Pricing very fair. We would return for delicious food and interesting setting.

I have to wonder how in the world someone can rate this place higher than a 2 but I guess people have certain tastes. I would rather eat out of a dumpster. Seems this place is set up to take Liberty student's cash because they can't go anywhere else. This is intended to be a negative review because I have... More

Excellent value for the 10.95 complete meal. Delicious food and helpful staff. Unique mode of ordering via computer. We found Doc's Diner completely by accident. Definitely would visit again next time we are in town.

I've come several times. every time terrible I got sick literally every time. I'll stop trying for sure now. It looks decent but isn't good.

This place has changed from its original format. You walk in and get one of those discs that buzzes when your table is ready - but it's not for that. You go to a computer screen and place your order. This makes reviewing the menu quite difficult. The menu isn't explained well at all. I chose the citrus glazed salmon... More

Service is bad here. Food is not very good. You would be better off going somewhere else. The food taste as if was frozen before it was cooked. Not worth your time

No waitresses. Gross food. Dirty tables. In one year's time, this place has gone from a cute diner to a dumpy mini cafeteria. Will never eat here again.

My review echos others. Highly disorganized, limited hours. It is what you would expect from a restuarant run by colllege students with poor supervision.

We visited Doc's Diner 2/10/13 while visiting Lynchburg with our two small children. You would think a "Diner" would be a great place for a Sunday morning brunch. We arrived at 11:30am and although all but 3 of the tables in the restaurant were EMPTY, we were told it would be a 30 minute wait because their serves don't come... More
