“Good food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Not a fancy place but food was great. The seafood platter was a great size. The price was average. Would come back again and again.

“Loved the Crab Legs”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had the crab legs for an apitiezer. They were the best I have ever eat. Our other food was good but when you start off with the best it is hard to say just great things about the other. Had wonderful service. We were there on a Monday night. Pretty much had the whole place to ourselfs. Our waitress was great!

“great fried shrimp”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We ate their twice during our week llong stay at the beach. Wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The fried shrimp was some of the best I've ever eaten anywhere, batter was light and the shrimp were a nice size. They have a wide variety on the menu and we talked to a few locals who were eating the fried chicken because it was the best in the area.

“TO THE MANAGER WHO DIDN'T CARE”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We went to Doc's because of the "BEST SHRIMP" advertisement. We were very disappointed. The serving was small and we did not have one whole shrimp. They were all pieces of shrimp.
I paid my bill and asked to speak to the manager. I was directed to him and told him how all five of us were diappointed in our meal and there was not one whole fried shrimp on our plates. He told me that happened when they were butterflied and he walked off. Mr. Manager you ought to be ashamed of the way you treated me.

“Clean”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Nice friendly informative server. Recommended good food not items that needed to be pushed. Got us happy hour drinks and came back before it ended to see if we wanted another. Reminded me of a northern Minn or Wisc lodge with the interior wood.
