We read the reviews, saw people waiting on a daily basis, and was suggested to try this place so we assumed it would have been a great place to go. However, if you're an interracial couple I do not suggest going here if you expect to be treated nicely. Our server that waited on us was nice and professional enough... More

My husband and I wanted to try this place touting their history here in Orange Beach first thing noticed was how dingy the place is. Should have turned right around but didn't. We wanted to try local seafood and were not impressed with the steamed reds....high price and poorly cooked. The corn on the cob was cooked to death and... More

This was one of our favorite restaurants - not fancy, but just good food. Service was excellent! We ordered the Large Boiled Shrimp and World Famous Homemade Onion Rings appetizers and I could have just eaten that - very good! We also ordered the Doc’s Super Seafood and Doc’s Famous Fried Shrimp (I ordered the Little Un and still couldn't... More

The place was Super busy on a Tuesday night so we carried out. The shrimp was tasty but the fries were just ok.

We were camping nearby and tried Docs after driving by it several times. What a treat! The food and service were both top notch! They have a sign claiming "best fried shrimp in the civilized world." That's about the truth. The fried shrimp was worth writing home about. All of the other entrees were good as well though! We look... More

Average seafood spot. Clean and friendly staff however food wise is mediocre. The grill shrimp has little seasoning and crab cakes mostly breading. The fried shrimp seem to be their specialty and was pretty good but nothing special. Kids were disappointed in their tender plate and they normally put away the chicken. Would stick with shrimp poboy here.

Yes I went in not really knowing what to expect. This place was recommended by friends and they did not lead me wrong. First, getting into this location can be tricky as it is right by a stop light for a "T" in the road so you must pay attention to the road. I missed my turn first time through.... More
