My boyfriend and I go to Docs whenever we want to have a special meal for a celebration or a date night. The food is some of the best we've ever had and we always have great and attentive service. Love this place!

A group of friends visited this restaurant and we were not happy at all. The food was excellent but the service was SLOW... The waitress made numerous mistakes with our food, serving it to the wrong person. I believe this was the slowest service I ever received in any restaurant.

We decided to try this eating establishment after someone said they had tried it and it was very good. Very good is not good enough to describe this wonderful Restaurant. Spectacular is a better term. We went on $1 oyster night.....They had 6 different oysters on the menu and we had one of each kind. The waitress was wonderful and... More

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
