Doc Magrogans has quite a bit of offer from land to sea.... Wait staff is very well trained and attentive. Food is very good as well... Would recommend if you are in the area.

Food is bland. Acceptable but nothing special as the price would suggest. Cocktails were much better than average. Particularly the specialty martinis. These are definitely worth the $ and worth going back for!

Recently went to this restaurant on a week night and it was relatively quiet. Upon our arrival we were advised that Happy Hour was in effect and that we would be entitled to lower priced wines/beer and apps. Although we were advised that Happy Hour prices were extended into the dining room, we opted for a table since we were... More

Delicious crab cakes. Love the crab dip. You have got to try the cease and desist fries. Yes that's fries with the crab dip.

We visited Doc Magrogans on busy Mothers' Day and were expecting a wait. Our meals did take a while but when they arrived, they were piping hot and delicious. I had the grilled seafood combo and each item on the plate was perfectly prepared-- not always easy to do with shrimp, scallops and salmon. My sisters had stuffed shrimp, a... More

My wife and I have been coming here for over 5 years and since Kenny left, the service has become just plain awful. We ate here last week and were one of two couples in the patio area- yet it took 10 minutes for a server to come to the table and another 15 to get a Coke and Iced... More

I liked what I had and i loved the atmosphere. I got the crab and cheese fondue. It could of had more sauce inside because we ended up with a lot of dry bread but what was in there was good. I also go a seafood cobb salad. Kinda pricy but good. I will go back and try something else.

Our server took way, way too long to greet us. We finally ordered, not knowing about the evening special of AYCE crab legs. We would have ordered it had we known. Salad and soup took forever to come out. We heard others complaining also. Food was acceptable once we got it.

My husband and I both ordered Doc's Grilled Combo - a combination of grilled salmon, scallops, and shrimp with potatoes and veggies. It was sooo Delicious. We eat a lot of seafood being that we live near Ocean City, Maryland and used to live in Annapolis, Maryland. We know good from bad seafood. And this was especially good!! The service... More
