Casual and delicious lunch stop

We went with a group of 7 to this restaurant, and were seated immediately for a weekend lunch. Drinks: They have bigger-than-your-face bloody marys, lemonade, coffee, sodas. Mostly regular stuff, except for the seasoned bacon (!) hanging off the bloody mary. Their house bread is incredibly... read more

We ate at Docs because of the reviews...but the service was sub par, took forever to get the food...unless you like a 45 minute wait and that is after you order! The only plus was eating outside on a deck in the sunset...and that you can get at several other places. There weren't even many patrons in the restaurant!!!

Stopped in after a day at Padre Island National Seashore. The service was very good; however, felt the food was a bit overpriced. Guess we were paying for the outstanding view. I had the crab stuffed flounder. It was not a bready stuffing like most places give you but a very good amount of crab. The only complaint I had... More

This is one of my Corpus Christi favorites. Great and plentiful platter of fresh seafood. The atmosphere is great as are the wait staff. I've had the broiled and fried seafood platters and could not finish all the food. It's a great place for lunch or dinner. I've never been dissapointed. Enjoy!

We had been fishing all day and it was chilly. So we opted to get takeout from Doc's for dinner, so we could dine in our warm pajamas in our hotel room. We've been to Doc's several times in the past and it's always been a little pricey (you pay for the view) but good. We placed a to-go order... More

Sunday March 22,2015 worst experience of customer service in my entire life!! Docs is absolutely FILTHY from the hostess to the tables. We waited over 1 hour and we still had not gotten our food-we walked out(leaving payment only for the drinks) I would definitely recommend snoopys which is right next door-the attire is casual and the service is 100%...

This place hit all of the right buttons for a great experience. Fantastic location, decent food, and a happy wife. Don't get me wrong because my wife is not a difficult person to please but she can be a little picky and she absolutely loved this restaurant. Did it provide a great experience? Definitely so I highly recommend it especially... More

The only thing good about Doc's is the location. The food was absolutely unpalatable, which only mimics the poor attitude of the hostess and the horrible service. The restaurant was overall filthy. The only reason I can figure individuals wrote excellent reviews is that they were too drunk to realize what they were eating....

My family took a day trip to Corpus and had our hearts set on eating at a restaurant on the coast. Initially we chose to go to the restaurant right next door until we found out it was a little more informal than we were looking for. We stopped by Docs and were incredibly happy with the choice. When we... More

The location of this restaurant is fantastic. I couldn't imagine a better place for a seafood type restaurant. You are next to one of the bridges which takes you from Corpus Christi to Padre Island, and it is placed right on the big body of water which lies between the two locations. The views are amazing. The garage doors were... More
