Usually it's very good

I have eaten at Doc's on several occassions. Usually the food is very good, as well as the mixed drinks. The view of the bay is always great, especially at sunset. I have tried multiple seafood dishes at Doc's and been very pleased with everything I've tried. The nightly specials have always... read more

My hubby and I decided to drive down to Corpus for the weekend, had no idea where to dine. We asked some locals and ended up at Docs. The food and drinks were excellent as well as the service. Sitting on the water provided a fantastic view. We will definitely go back next time we visit Corpus Christi.

I ordered the sauteed flounder and it came with rosemary potatoes and salad. The flounder was excellent! Husband ordered the ribeye and said it was the best he'd had in town. He really liked the seasoning. Service was quick, waitresses knew their stuff, and the cervesas were great. Kind of expensive, but a great meal. We'll come back when we're... More

This is my 5th visit, mainly dinner but today was lunch. I visit here on business trips due to the fresh seafood that's not available at home. This trip was disappointing... With little variety (they were "waiting on their fresh shipment the past few days") and terribly slow service. In fact, today I had to ask another server to take... More

We were down in the padre island area for the Beach to Bay relay marathon. We were seated right away and were served immediately. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was good, a bit expensive, but not too bad. Love the outside deck to sit and eat on as the boats go by. Will definitely return.

First of all I have no idea how this place has a four star rating, I am giving it just one and this is my reason; we were very excited about coming to this place specially after seeing their rating, their staff is very friendly and very clean no complaints there,now the food is another story. They claim to have... More

Very popular restaurant, so if you get there late, be prepared to wait for up to an hour to get in. Worth the wait. Be sure to use the can of "Off" spray they keep at the desk!

Great view, good drinks, food varies from excellent to "gee, that was not what i expected". Oysters Rockefeller are very,very good and a solid recommend as are the crab cakes. Coconut shrimp are NOT. Clam chowder is very good and a nice starter. Get there early on weekends and grab a rail side table. Nice little band. Probably our tenth... More
