My husband and I met another couple here for an early dinner and we sat out front. The food was ok but small portions.

We have been to Docs numerous times in the past and always had good experiences. We went with a group of friends this past Saturday and were very disappointed. We ordered 3 orders of sushi and were told they were out of the ingredients to make the sushi. We then ordered two dozen oysters off the menu and were told... More

My husbands been looking for a good seafood restaurant that didn't require us driving down to Rehoboth Beach or over to MD. Not being gamblers we never would have thought to go there without having seen it listed in TripAdvisor. The Crispy Fresh Calamari was very tender and we loved the peppers (next time we would ask for extra peppers... More

This is my favorite place to eat. The service is outstanding and the seafood is excellent. I particularly love the Ahi Tuna. It is fabulously delicious and done to perfection. The clams and the shrimp are wonderful. It is the place I select for any special occasion as well as when I crave seafood. Prices are reasonable for the high... More

I have been eating here for years and today was so disappointing. This was my first time ordering off the new menu. I was sad to see some favs go away but excited to try new stuff. The first item we ordered was the shrimp tempura sushi - they were out of the ingredients. Next was the BLT mussels ,... More

I must say, this restaurant was surely a surprise..Located in the Dover Downs Casino, it looks like something you could find on the streets of Ireland. We hit it just at the right time--HAPPY HOUR--although the only beer drinkable (my opinion) during Happy Hour was Miller Lite ($2), the $1 oysters were a hit at our bar table. It did... More

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
