It is our joy to serve you the freshest seafood, the finest handcrafted beers, and a superior wine selection!

Nice restaurant with a good size bar and a couple of private dining rooms for large parties. We had the little neck clams and the wasabi seared tuna for appetizers. Both were very good. Both of us had the scallops for our main course. Truthfully the best I have ever had. Served with kale greens and peach salsa for a... More

We went to Doc's for a business dinner and the restaurant was a great setting. The atmosphere was perfect for our dinner meeting. Our server, Jim, was fantastic! Super knowledgeable and attentive. We started with oyster, particularly Kumumotos, Delaware Bay and Malpeque, and they were the best part of the meal! In honor of shark week, they offered Mako shark... More

Visited twice on my business trip. I was impressed both times. Monday night is oyster night "a buck a shuck" with 8-10 variety of oysters to choose from, we'll worth it. Wednesday was all you can eat snow crab. First plate was two clusters then a single cluster until you yelled uncle. Loved the single cluster service, each one was... More

Ok it's a specialty fish place so the fish, oysters, clams, etc should be top notch and the preparations spot on..right? No so much here. Oysters were delicious except for the 2 that had quite a bit of sand, grit, shell in them. The steamers were overcooked into little rubber balls that tasted vaguely of garlic. For Christmas sake if... More

I'm posting this review again because I got a response from the Public Relateion Manager of Doc Magrogan's Melissa Zirolli from my first post which was never followed up on. I did what they asked and emailed Stephanie Sluck the restaurant manager with my contact information and was never responded to. I also saw another review which got exactly the... More

When we make the trip from SC to NH we always stop at Doc's on the way up and back. Tonight I had the Seafood Boullibaise and it was phenomenal. Scallops, shrimp, mussels and clams in a saffron broth over linguine. My husband had the grilled seafood, shrimp, scallops and salmon with roasted potatoes and green beans. He said it... More

Nice fresh fish, and oysters selection. Huge portions, we way over ordered. i like this chain better than Legal Seafood, and Bone Fish. We have a location in West Chester, PA near our home in Malvern, PA. 5 minutes off RT 81 and close to the PA Turnpike. We drove by on our way back from the Finger Lakes. We... More

Stumbled onto Doc Magrogan's after a movie tonight and were very pleasantly surprised. This is the kind of restaurant more areas need more of - a seafood restaurant that is not a cookie cutter chain, has good atmosphere, good service and good food. There was an impressive menu of different kinds of oysters available (who knew there were so many??),... More

My wife and I were at Montage, Pa as we dropped our daughter off for an all day music festival. As there aren't a lot of dinning options close by we decided to dine at Doc Magrogan's. We first had drinks at the bar and an appetizer. The crab aracini was a risotto ball fried which was supposed to have... More

Would not recommend this place. While it may be fresh seafood in Moosic, we thought the pricing/value to be lacking. Soup seemed canned, only got 2 tacos with the dinner and fish was drenched in butter...while folks at the bar and eating oysters seemed really happy, for dinner, there are better options and would recommend skipping this one.
