We are open 11 months of the year (closed in January) and serve a traditional breakfast on Sundays and lunch and dinner daily (see www.thedocsplace.com for seasonal hours).

Good, Not Great.

I visited this restaurant with high expectations. Friends and family had outstanding things to say about this establishment so I wanted to see for myself.

Doc's Place has excellent food, service and atmosphere. If possible, make a reservation to sit out on the deck. There's a great view of a harbor to enjoy doing dining.

Four of us had the early bird dinner there tonight. The service was excellent, the view was good, but the food was fair. The chowder needed some spice and the salmon was over cooked and dry. The stuffed flounder consisted of a paper thin piece of fish with a mediocre stuffing. In my opinion there are better places to eat... More

This is our favorite place to go for a quiet date. We usually sit at the cozy bar and enjoy some oysters and whatever else we crave. The bartender's are phenomenal. The food is always fresh and delicious. This is a family owned and operated restaurant and really a gem in our area. As beer "snobs" I would like to... More

My wife and I were in the area for a brief "Spring Break" and had dinner at Doc's Place. We did not know much about the restaurant but liked what we read so we took a chance. It was a most wonderful evening and a perfect choice for what we were looking for. Our table was ready on time. The... More

We were out for a Sunday drive down at the Jersey Shore. While in Somers Point we decided to look for a place for lunch. We happened by The Doc's Place alongside the water behind the hospital. The name was a cute pun, there is the marina for boats and plenty of physicians too. We were served by Lisa and... More

Even in winter, Doc's offers a charming and relaxing view along with thoughtfully-prepared food that shouts "Fresh at the Shore". Their seafood, especially the scallops and flounder, is always excellent. Doc's wait staff is low-key friendly and knowledgeable about the bar, wine and special offerings. Reservations strongly recommended, especially on spring, summer and fall weekends!

Have been here several times this summer. Am almost afraid to write this review as it will bring attention to Docs and it might become busier! In the summer, ask for a table outside overlooking the marina. Sitting at the bar is also excellent. Dave always takes care of us. Good Cabernet. The kitchen is always willing to mix and... More

We visited during "Restaurant Week" as we had always heard good things about Doc 's. We were seated promptly and had our drink orders taken and reviewed the (1) restaurant week menu for our party of four which we all ordered from. While one of us ordered the Spicey Shrimp appetizer the rest of our party had the Salad Wedge... More
