I had the best oysters on the half shell I have ever had. The fried shrimp was also very good. It is not fancy but the food was good and service was excellent.

Doc’s is a very simple looking location but they have what it takes for business success. Great food, great personnel. Their gumbo is just outstanding. A visit to Doc’s is well worth it!!!!

The brochure in our hotel had an ad for this place and it was touted as "The Best Fried Shrimp in the Civilized World" NOT!!! The shrimp plate was not that good and the place looked like a real shack!!! Skip this place!!

Not a fancy place, but good food. Not on the Gulf, but so what. We've eaten the shrimp and other specials and enjoyed it. Casual so you don't have to dress up.

The food was not bad. Small shop. Service was good. Paid the most here for the poorest food of our trip. Would not be a high priority on a return trip.

No get there early. First come first served. If only a couple look for bar seating! Great way to talk with locals!
