Everything I've tried on the menu I liked except for the wings (under cooked ). The atmosphere is relaxing and the wait staff are friendly and prompt. Prices are decent and even in the busiest time if the season, the wait isn't too long.

Dinner was pleasant. Service was outstanding. Many different seating situations. Yhe meal wasn't over the top but was very good.

I would know how to get to the location since the bridge into the beach area can mess you up.

Doc Ford 's was a great place for a delicious dinner and bustling atmosphere. The four of us (all women ) ordered a variety of shrimp and fish dinners. We enjoyed prompt and professional service. Some recent reviews have been negative because of noise and service, but because we were there before live music began, the sound level was perfect. Our server was prompt, funny, and efficient. All good. We'll go back!

I knew this place from a while ago and wanted to check out if it still existed... I was surprise to find out that the name (if not the whole restaurant) changed, but decided to check it out anyway.

We had to wait quite a while to get seated and only got one of the high tables near to the door, but since we had no reservation it was not really the restaurants fault.

The food however was excellent. We all enjoyed our dishes.

The only small critic I have is, that it was too loud inside and therefore it was really hard to have a good conversation.
