Doherty's a perfect place to get a tasty meal. I work nearby and go here for lunch with friends quite often. The service is friendly and the food is consistently good. Also a nice place to grab a beer and appetizer for happy hour.

I was in Doherty's several times while visiting in Decatur, Illinois. Both times I was there we had beer and their appetizers which were excellent. The people working there are very friendly and the service was great.
