The half seafood platter winter special hit the spot! The portions meet the price and the quality we’ve come to expect was present. Doc’s gumbo is my favorite but everything we had was superb!

Really good local restaurant. Not fancy, but the food is very good (we had crab cakes and shrimp). Portions were generous and we left feeling we got a very good meal at a fair price. We would recommend Doc's to anyone visiting the area.

This is a popular restaurant and was not disappointing. I had the fried shrimp and it was good. Not sure it was the best in the world like they say, but very good.

Be careful, both waitress and cashier tried to mislead me on country of origin on their swai fish. Both told me it was farm raised in U.S. which I feel sure is not true. Makes one wonder what else might be shady
