We were enticed to go to Docs for dinner, based in part on the many positive Trip Advisor reviews and also by the scenic location on the waterfront. We toured the site in the afternoon, examined the menu and made reservations for 6:30 pm. When we arrived we found the parking lot was extremely packed with vehicles and the place was hopping with diners. The hostess recognized me and immediately escorted us to a waiting table, much to the chagrin of the other patrons waiting for open tables.
The orders were promptly taken (we had examined the menu beforehand). There was a musician singing in the room, loudly. Our appetizers arrived shortly thereafter. I witnessed a steady procession of waiters entering and leaving the kitchen serving all of the other tables. As patrons left, the tables were bussed and quickly refilled with new customers. There was virtually no wait time between sittings.
The crab guacamole was different, delicious and enough to feed two or three people. My wife had crab stuffed Portobello and they were delicious (see photograph). The main entrées came with a large 8” diameter salad and 8” sourdough bread. I had coconut shrimp along with a bed of rice and a side order of red baked potatoes, enough for a family of three. My wife had crab stuffed flounder, delicately cooked and exquisitely seasoned with lemon. Everything was delicious, but the true sad thing is, we could not eat everything.
I apologized to our waiter that I felt bad about how large the portions were. Had I known, we would have ordered ½ or 1/3. These are true Texas sized portions. All food was very delicious.
The only real drawback to our experience was the singer. We don’t know what he was singing. What he lacked in clarity and quality he made up for in volume. My ears are still ringing.
