We decided to go eat seafood at a local restaurant and saw the mixed reviews but decided to check it out. The wait at 7 for a Sunday was not bad. When we were seated we did get menus and were told someone would be with us soon. Several staff members walked by but no one came by our table... More

The view is great and the staff is wonderful. I would have to say the one thing I would improve is the food. The food quality is not comparable to the price. We had the fish tacos and my daughter had chicken alfredo. Total bill after tip was over $60. The fish tacos were a little skinny. The description in... More

We were seated outside overlooking the bay area which provided a steady breeze and nice view. Our server was outstanding. She didn't write anything down and everything was served as ordered, even the special requests. All of our food was delicious. We ordered fried oysters, grilled coconut shrimp, flounder, and snapper. The Cajun rice wasn't seasoned as much as expected,... More

It was VERY hot with no A/C. The service was pretty bad as we had to keep asking for drink refills and as much as we were sweating was a lot. The food was tasty but very small portions for the price and conditions. The place seemed more geared towards the night life, bar type place. We will not be... More

But unfortunately not impressed with food. :(

We drove down a bridge and chanced upon Doc's, it has a nice view while we were eating. Our waitress was attentive, but not over-bearing. But, the most important thing at this restaurant: grilled coconut shrimp! It was the very best. I'm not sure how they made the delicious sauce, but it was topped with toasted coconut. I didn't think... More

Very good food. Unfortunately, service was less than accommodating. Had to hail waitress for any drink refills. Appetizer came out after salads.
