We love going to Doc's every visit, but since the last time we were here (last month), they've apparently ended their long-standing weeknight happy hour menu (it had great food and drink specials that kept is there for hours). Shame on you Doc's. You still have the water, which gives you one leg up on others in your area, but... More

We were visiting Corpus for a wedding. We usually go to the restaurant next door, but our family said this restaurant was just as good. Really cool place. Can sit either indoors or out. We chose inside because it can be really hot outside in June. It is open air seating inside. They do have lots of fans to keep... More

Second visit. I guess it was homecoming night or something. The place was lively. We didn't have to wait long for service. While waiting please try the pina coladas! This is an open air restaurant, so it's a little warm. Ordered the stuffed fish and the stuffed mushrooms. Never received our salad. Everything tasted the same. Heavy seasoning of the... More

Open air restaurant. Fans plugged in everywhere to help keep patrons comfortable. Ok if you don't mind having a fan blowing in your face. 40 minutes to get a seat, 40+ minutes to get food. Food was good, nothing spectacular. Expected better. Best part is it's on the water and if you're lucky you'll see a lovely sunset.

I was here recently for my cousin's wedding reception. it was decorated for a fiesta! We were in an open air area below the main dining room. it on the water's edge(bay?) and quite scenic. The staff was helpful.

Wife and I went out to Docs for dinner on a Tuesday night, didn't feel like dealing with the touristy places downtown and the accompanying crowds. Arrived about 6:30 to about a half full restaurant and was seated immediately. Got a great table on the porch area, right next to the railing and an unobstructed view of the bridge and... More

We had decided to adventure to corpus christi for the day from sanantonio. After driving around we stumbled on this place. The view is amazing. Even though there were no seats by the window. The live band was very good and nice alternative to radio. We did wait about 45min on our food, but food was very good when we... More

We left our resort which had a restaurant, to eat at Docs where we heard we could enjoy the breeze off the water and fresh seafood. We arrived around 7:45 and waited just over an hour to be seated. The waiter quickly brought out our drinks and the appetizer and we ordered. Another 40 minutes went by without anyone coming... More

We went to Doc's on Saturday evening for dinner around 7:30pm. We only had to wait about 15-20 minutes for a table. However, during that time I went to the bar to get us a couple of drinks while we wait and it took the whole wait time to get someone to take my order and get our drinks even... More
