My husband had the flat iron steak with garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus and onion rings. I had seafood dish with clams, mussels, scallops and veggies. On the menu they serve with... More

Went there on a Monday night for an early birthday dinner with family, food was very good, had raw oysters, and lobster tacos which were very good. The only problem with this restaurant is the incredibly slow service. I have been here many times now at all different times of day and its always slow. Seems like it is the... More

My husband and I were very disappointed with our food. The service was great but the cook was terrible! Our steaks were over cooked and unseasoned our vegetables were extremely raw, very very hard! We were overcharged for a bottle of wine! We went to a liquor store down the hwy bought the same bottle for $8.99, at the restaurant... More

The food is very good.... And it may be better service later in the day.... But I have been here on numerous occasions between the lunch and dinner hours.... I always set in the patio area, usually only one of maybe two or three other customers... It takes forever to be waited on and even longer to get served... Several... More

We stopped at Doc's on Saturday, July 23, for a light lunch. We ordered a dozen steamed oysters and a bowl of lobster bisque. There is good news and some very bad news. First, the good news. The bisque was very good, full of nice lobster bites and a creamy, well-seasoned base. Now the bad news. We ordered a dozen... More
