Doc’s is by far my favorite restaurant in the Gulf Shores area. You will most likely have to wait to get a table (especially if you have a large group). Somehow they move people in and out without rushing you, and giving you generous portions....More

Ate here for dinner. It was ok. Restaurant ambience is non existent. Our food was good and came quickly and was hot. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable for the area. Overall there are lots of better choices in the area for food.
