The food is great, love the staff! Always a pleasure to visit. Beautiful view of the ocean and wildlife. You can even tie your boat up and come on in.....Love it.

Dropped in again for another great meal on vacation in the area. The stuffed crab black drum with the poblano sauce was amazing! All the other dishes served were welcomed by everyone and all enjoyed the great seafood. Can't wait to go back again. Great waiter, she did a fantastic job. See you guys soon!

Food and service was good. The food is a bit average but good. The view was really nice and it really has a coastal vacation feel.

One of our go-to places when on the island. Any sandwich with the sweet sourdough bread & hush puppies are favorites along with the view & the sunsets. Friendly & great service from Karen & Jamie. Also had to restock my supply of Suncoast Seasalts. If you haven't tried them, there's a sample in the restroom.

The atmosphere and the food are equally fantastic. We occasionally try different seafood restaurants in the area and are always disappointed. Doc's is the best in Corpus!

Everyone is nice, even the customers. Servers are very friendly and the food is good for a reasonable price. Go slow on the margaritas.

Two caveats on our rating: 1. We only had salads so it's hard to rate the food with just a couple of shrimp salads. 2. We were here early evening on a Friday night...so the place was packed with families and quite noisy. Obviously lots of people like to come here and have a good time. Service by Shanda was... More

Tonight I had their basic burger for the first time. It was huge and yummy, along with the fries. Normally I don't eat that much and I don't finish the fries. Very hungry tonight. Great service and atmosphere, as always. We got there at 5:30pm without a wait for the perfect water view and sunser table. Didn't stay long enough... More
