If you want a sunset view over the water, there really is no other option, since Corpus faces East. (Except for Snoopy's next door if you want a fish basket eaten with plastic ware and serve yourself for basically the same price as a real...restaurant - Doc's.) Doc's has excellent service, and for my money, Rebecca is the best waitress in Corpus Christi, delivering great service with an excellent sense of humor. I eat out a lot, being single, and there are other good restaurants, but I keep coming here for the open-air experience, great food, great service and not cheap but reasonable prices.More

My family loves this place. The food is really good and we love the open air dining area. The wait for a table can be long sometimes, usually an hour or more. But with the bar downstairs that has plenty of seating, time really does...fly by and before you know it, they are buzzing you that your table is ready.More

Finding decent food service in Port Aransas has been a failing ordeal. We left Port A for Docs hoping we could enjoy seafood. What a disaster! First, the noise level was excruciating. Why people must shout while eating I do not understand. Also, the live...entertainment was very loud promoting the insufferable exchanges. Second, service was lacking. The waiter did not know the difference between New England and Manhattan clam chowder. He knew red or white. Also, he did not return to check on meals. Third, food was substandard. Clam chowder was pasty and lumpy. A seafood salad was warm and presented on wilted greens. Fried items were over cooked. My margarita tasted like syrupy fruit juice. Horrible venue.More

Food and service were the best! We had the MahiMahi, Redfish and Srimp PoBoy and everything was delicious. Someone in our party can no have gluten and Doc's delivered! Do not go to Snoopy's next door if you are gluten intolerant - they can NOT...deliver! Also had $5 margaritas that were so good. Our server was fantastic and so friendly (wish I had her name). And of the course, the views! Can't wait to go back!More

First time at Doc’c. Stopped here for steak/sea food. Food and service was excellent. Live music was good also. We will dine here again.

Service took forever. Ordered a $35 steak medium and after an hour and 15 minute wait got a tiny piece of leather. All the food tasted bad for my kids too and they skimp on meat and just pile up tons of terrible tasting fries...that no one wanted to eat.. Don't waste your money or time on this place.More

Why didn't I know hush puppies are so good?? We had dinner for six, several special diets to consider, everyone had a great meal and the wait staff helped with that too - service with a smile, quick and efficient, all instructions followed perfectly. Would...go over and over if I lived nearby!More

My wife, son and I dined at Doc's Seafood & Steak Restaurant after a visit to the Padre Island National Seashore. We all ordered the Coastal Bacon Wrapped Shrimp. The shrimp are stuffed with cilantro cream cheese. A fantastic entree! The views of the Gulf...intra-coastal waterway from the restaurant are great. We were there at a time to enjoy the beautiful sunset as well. This place is extremely popular, so do not expect to be seated immediately if you arrive at dinner time. The service was efficient and friendly. We had no complaints whatsoever.More

Great place for dinner on the Laguna Madre. I had blackened redfish with a crawfish etouffe, which I’m trying to replicate. My kids loved the food and the view!

Great, very casual restaurant. Whether sitting "inside" or outside, fresh air circulates all about, given Doc's garage-style, open air concept dining area.... some tables are "inside", some are out. No need to worry about Covid here! ;) The food was purdy decent, too. Pictured here...was the seafood salad I ordered; delish concept (although it was SWIMMING in dressing... SWIMMING!). My kiddo got the catch of the day (grilled Mahi Mahi), and we also had the calamari (it's all "rings".... no tentacles), which isn't served with marinara, but with some type of creamy horseradish dressing of some sort. Pricey at $88 (for just 2 of us), IMO, but I'll blame the delicious fried cheesecake a la mode for pushing the bill over the edge!More

We visited on a Sunday evening hoping to have a meal. Greeted in a friendly manner and told 30 min wait for food, which was absolutely fine. Found a seat in the bar area, purchased drinks and sat down to listen to the live music....Girl who served our drinks brought menus and cutlery to the table we were seated at and said we could eat here if we wanted. We were happy with this but, despite trying to catch the attention of a server, we were still sat there when the 30 mins on our table waiter buzzer went off. We went to the girl appearing to manage to table reservations, who then took us to an outside table on its own, and as it was a windy cooler evening, we declined this table. She wasn’t impressed, and rudely said we’ll have to wait until another table had been cleared. We declined and chose to leave to go elsewhere. Complete lack of a joined up approach to managing their covers! A shame as menu looked good.More

We stopped for dinner here on our vacation. It was busy and we waited just about an hour for a table. My wife and I both had catch of the day which was Mahi Mahi. It had a mango aoloi sauce on top. It was...cooked to perfection. Beautiful sunset view. Drinks very reasonably priced. Would recommend.More

Their menu is great. If there is something you need changed up, they have always been able to accommodate. Give them a call. My daughter has allergies as well and they assured us that they will make sure we were safe.
