Nice waterfront setting

Doc's is a good place to have dinner and watch the sunset. Or if you are headed home from the beach, you can sit down and relax and have dinner before beginning your drive home. Good food--a little better than Snoopy's next door, but also a little more expensive. Also waiter service versus... read more

Worst fried shrimp I've ever had! The wife asked if the Ahi tuna was really fresh the waitress responded it is. It came out and had been frozen and was tough! There are to many other good seafood restaurants in the area to waste your calories on this place.

We stopped there midweek and early for dinner. There were not many people there. We were greeted immediately and got a table near the open windows. It was a cool rainy day but we were plenty warm. My husband ordered the special, Parmesan encrusted mahi mahi and I had the crab stuffed flounder. Both were served with Cajun dirty rice... More

The location is great and the staff wonderful. We were disappointed with the food. The shrimp was heavily breaded, fried crispy and basically cooked to death! The grouper with avocado cream sauce had a good flavor but was greasy.
