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

My husband and I with guests went over a year ago on a Sunday, and the chef was in the back kitchen throwing a fit and literally pots and pans. Our food came out frozen and just a huge disapointment. This was our third time there, and each time that we have visited, we have been disapointed. Will not go... More

My parents met in Corpus and I have spent at least 10 years there over the last half century. Doc's does wonderful plain old seafood (basic fish and shrimp) and Doc's does seafood dishes that rival some of the better seafood houses in New Orleans. Doc's does other kinds of food like steaks, chops, etc., but when I am near... More

Our was waitress was great! Always came by to check up on us. I had the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp which was stuffed with crab, cream cheese and Serrano peppers. I was expecting it be bursting with flavor but sadly mine was a tad bland. It was very greasy and all I could taste was the bacon. I would go back... More

We ate the specials - one was snapper and the other drum. Both were really good. Our server was very friendly. It was overcast when we were there but I bet the view at sundown on a clear day would be fantastic.

When here for a lunch date with my friend and her mother daughter day out. Food seem to be very reasonably priced and was wonderful. Wait staff was very helpful and on point. At sundown you cannot beat the view!!!

On the dislike side, we barely started our salad, then the appy came, still trying to eat that and the salad, main course came. Felt like we could not really enjoy the meal as much as we felt rushed. On the positive side, food very very good. We had a Crab Cake appy, and a Calamari Salad appy, both excellent.... More
