Great Lunch Specials

Doc's is a great place to have lunch with one of their lunch specials. Very good food at a low price. The view over the Intracoastal waterway is beautiful. If you go for dinner, the sunsets a very nice from this location.

This was not the best restaurant we've eaten at but it is definitely good. The food is locally sourced & well prepared. The service was ok & that is what kept them from getting the fifth star. Most of the exterior walls open up like garage doors which has to make this an awesome experience in warm weather.

While the restaurant is rather loud, it's a great place to get fresh sea food. I ordered the shrimp wrapped in bacon, etc., and it was fantastic. I also ordered the rosemary potatoes too but was too full to touch them. The salad was okay, nothing great but certainly acceptable. The top shelf margaritas were good because we order the... More

We ate two meals here and both were really, really good. The view (especially the sunset) is beautiful. I would definitely advise anyone to give this place a try!

Food needs work. When you over-cook fried shrimp and fish, this should serve as a warning to not get anything expensive. Service is so-so. Great view.

We were doing business in this part of the world and decided to drive out to Padre for dinner. I am a seafood nut so the two restaurants on the water got my vote. We ended up at Doc's. Service was prompt and courteous. The food (Oysters, Salads, and Fish) didn't take long. The food itself was a strong 7... More

Doc's Seafood was full of families and groups on Saturday night -- the service was excellent and the food was very good. Our waiter, Andre, was knowledgeable about the menu, answered our questions fully, took our order promptly (but only after offering us more time to order), returned to check on us at just the right intervals, and in general...

I've come to the conclusion that there are not any great seafood restaurants in Corpus. I grew up on Louisiana and Alabama Gulf Coast and the seafood there is amazing. I cannot believe that Corpus doesn't have the same. Doc's was terrible. I ordered what was supposed to be snapper and my boyfriend ordered tilapia. Well, try harder next time... More

Dreary weather, dreary service, dreary food. We stopped in for a late lunch on a cold and rainy January afternoon so there was no sunny water view to distract our attention from a dismal dining experience. We ordered the fish sandwich and the blackened tilapia with dirty rice. The bland supermarket sub roll presented in a bread basket was a... More
