We were looking forward to visiting Doc's as they were top rated for their Shrimp. Lady at the front was very pleasant. Very clean when we came in. Food and service though, what a disappointment. Ordered from the specials menu which is 11am-2pm. I had the Popcorn Shrimp with 3 sides. The Popcorn Shrimp was very greasy and tasted partially... More

I don't always eat my shrimp fried. But when I do, Docs is the best place to get them. Everything I've tried here has been really good as well, particularly the stuffed crab which is often prepackaged and frozen other places.

We've been eating at Doc's for years, even before it became as popular as it is today. We try to go at off-peak times to avoid the wait, as the lines are way out the door at noon and in the evenings. The staff is friendly, and remember us from visit to visit. Great fried shrimp, and wonderful cole slaw.... More

When you first arrive you may think this another typical fried food joint! But this place is very busy for a reason!!!! I ordered the baked seafood platter I will have to say I was pleasantly surprised! Food was hot well prepared and fresh. The hushpuppies are delicious little sweeter than most and the key lime pie was the best... More

We had a group of 24+. We got right in. Took awhile for the server to take all our orders. I suggest team servers. Food was good and yummy. Happy hour ALL DAY. Bonus!!!! From beginning to end took about 3 hrs. They do take reservations.

The fried shrimp is light and tasty. My baked potato was very steamy, not soft. Fries were ok. Slaw is sweet and creamy, very good. Hushpuppies are delish. We had music that night we were there. Two men sang a lot of oldies. Very nice. And it was early, around 4:30pm. So that was nice.

Thank Mary W
