Doc's has a monopoly in the area as there is nothing else around, it is on a sand flat under a bridge and the view is everything, lots of water. The food is more upscale diner type stuff but the lemon drop martini was great. So if fried is your prefereance, this is the place.

Arrived there at Valentine's Day night. Ordered tonight's special diner of sirloin and scollops combo, so yummy and fresh. The way they cooked food is just I wanted it. Dessert ended our happy Valentine's Day. Beautiful sunset is bonus.

The food was outstanding as we had no complaints from our group of 20. The waitress kept the salsa and chips filled before as well as our drinks. They were very accommodating and the atmosphere was delightful. We will return again.

We have been to eat at Doc's a couple of times. Both times the food was good. Both times were on a Friday night. Both times there was live entertainment. Both times the music was good listening. Each time there was a variety of music played. It was not over bearing to where you could have a conversation. Well maybe... More

We had and loved the crab cakes, stuffed flounder with poblano sauce, seafood salad. And the fried cheesecake! Our waiter, Mack, was pretty great too.

We will certainly thank Mack for doing such a nice job. It's a labor of love to hand select our fresh seafood each morning. It is flounder season, and the flounder have been just beautiful this week. Thank you for noticing! More

Cold dry jambalaya and the stuffed port mushroom was too salty to eat. $100 tab and we needed to go thru a drive-thru on the way home.
