This is a must restaurant for all visiting Mustang Island, North padre or Corpus Christi. We had a party of 14 for lunch and they got us right in. The seafood salad served on a square Japanese plate was freaking AWESOME! It had delicious blackened yellow fin tuna, calamari, and shrimp. It's like sushi without the rice and wrap. They... More

We went with a very large group of people and the staff handled it very well. Our food was warm and everything was correct. We split the tuna and it was cooked rare, just how we asked. The seasoning was delicious, although not the kind of blackening seasoning I was expecting...still very good. We will be going back to enjoy... More

The sunsets at Doc's are breathtaking and the food is equally good. I recommend arriving about 30 minutes prior to sunset and sitting next to the railing. The bacon-wrapped shrimp. It is excellent. There is often live music on the weekends, too. A wonderful experience.

Good food, good atmosphere, live music, and the best Old Fashions ever! I had the blackened Mahi Mahi, and it was very good and fresh. It's a relaxing, casual experience. We even went back just for drinks one afternoon after shopping.

The tuna sandwich is incredible. Full bar, great live music and a top notch location. The sunsets are lovely and staff always attentive. It's a great casual date destination.

We had low expectations after hearing that dining options in Corpus Christi weren't particular inspiring, and most of the seafood is fried (ugh). Although Doc's is nothing fancy, and the menu choices are straightforward, we were pleasantly surprised. We had a lovely table next to the water to enjoy the view and feel the gulf breezes. All three of us... More

The stuffed flounder was awesome and very flavorful, but the grilled tilapi was dry and had no seasoning on it
