We had about 8 of us in the party and they got us in pretty quickly, because they had a big table in the back. We had a good time, the fried seafood platter was good, the Raw Oysters were very good. Prices were mid range

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.

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

We also ordered the Doc’s Super Seafood and Doc’s Famous Fried Shrimp (I ordered the Little Un and still couldn't... More
