Tried this seafood restaurant. The food great, service great and a good value. Very basic interior, nothing fancy but a place that will "call you back" Oh tried this location twice in less than two weeks!!!?

Jessica made us feel right at home. Food was unbelievably good. Fried shrimp were divine and the GUMBO, this is the best gumbo I have EVER had. Bought 2 quarts as we were leaving, from the conveniently located freezer right by the register!

Doc's Seafood Shack has been a mainstay of the Orange Beach Gulf Shores restaurant scene for many years. I have never had anything there I did not like.

We come here several times each year. The weekly specials always have lots of tasty vegetable side dishes available and dessert is included.

My hubby and I never miss eating at Doc's. We love everything. The fried shrimp is to die for. The gumbo is outstanding, and my husband loves the oysters too

My husband had fried shrimp. I had a stuffed fish. I'd say our food was good. Hush puppies sub par. Not thrilled about the make-your-own shrimp sauce gimmick. A bit of a dive atmosphere.

Everything is frozen, no fresh seafood here. Maybe the oysters, I wouldn't trust them though. There are too many great choices in the area to eat here. Seriously, get the cheeseburger, it's the best thing on the menu.

i would rather keep this review to myself but in fairness to Doc's I can't. We love seafood and have eaten at every restaurant multiple times but Doc's is our go to place. There is no better fried shrimp anywhere. The fried combo platter with gumbo, shrimp,oysters and fish is the best meal on the coast. Can't understand why so... More
