Delicious experience while watching the waves and sharing a few tunes. Easy with children and a huge selection.

We have been coming to the Corpus area for 40 years but we have never eaten here. We finally gave it a try on a Friday night. It was quite busy but we were seated after a short wait. There is no AC here. It was ok in May but I don't know how it would play in July. We... More

This is a great restaurant on the bay of inter coastal water way. They have great food and the service is great. On the weekends they occasionally have a live band performing. There is both indoor and outdoor seating.

I read the reviews on trip advisor (my very trusted source) so we went here. I don't want to say it was horrible because it wasn't but it was just average at best. The mahi mahi the waitress recommended was good. All the other food and drinks were just average. Nothing about the restaurant really stood out. We will not... More

We came by boat and we're able tie up right in front. There was construction going on but the let us go through it. It looks like the addition is going to be nice when it's completed. I had coconut shrimp. Loved it!

Stopped for lunch on our way to airport. Had a water side table as it was not busy. Great view and great lunch including the crab cakes, coconut shrimp and fish of the day. Would come again if in the area.

We rented a boat to explore the bay while family was visiting and docked at Doc's Seafood for lunch on a Sunday. Great food, great views, will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

My wife had their fish and chips and I had their fresh shrimp. We ended up visiting both Doc's and Snoopy's on different days. I thought the food was comparable at both places. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

Arrived late on a weeknight, so the restaurant was not crowded. We asked to be seated outside, but when we discovered the first table placed us in a very windy spot upon request we were moved to a more sheltered area that still afforded a view of the waterway. My husband enjoyed the crab cakes while I had the grilled... More

Our food was good. The best think was the view over the dock. Nice casual place to sit and have drinks overlooking the bay.
