Excellent seafood restaurant. Most tables view the bay. At night they have lights in the water attracting the fish which surprisingly also attracted some seagulls. Great spot for the sunset. Excellent meals and great service, was very attentive. Was hesitant to go because of some of the reviews I read but service was great for us.

One of the local hot spots, we were in a long line which moved very quickly and food was ready for our pick up very fast. However , it lacked the taste of a place so much recommended. Fish was definitely not fresh. Super friendly staff that aimed to please. Live Music really nice. Good blah.

This was our second trip to Doc's. Service and food are incomparable. We were lucky enough to arrive just as the sun was setting making our experience even better.

Went here while on a short vacation and the food was awesome. The wait was over 45min for seat and 40min for food but Friday night I expected that. Some things were forgotten on my order but I brought it to waiters attention attend had no issues. I understand it was busy. Love the food and atmosphere.

Good food, great ambiance, very nice views of the bay. Plenty of food for the price. Grilled tuna tacos were tasty, however the sweet potato fries left something to be desired. The bacon wrapped shrimp was not what up to expectations. We would go back to try another menu item.

At Doc's we strive for excellence with every menu item. Were the sweet potato fries under or over cooked? How could we make our bacon wrapped shrimp better? Thank you for letting us know how we can improve. More

While the main dishes were very good, the sides were mediocre and the service was almost nonexistent. We went on a night when it wasn't very busy so we should've had attentive wait staff, but that was not the case. There were no drink refills and we had to wait so long for the check that one of our party... More

They have very good food. It is water front dining with sunset views. It can get busy at times but we were there during the week so it wasn't too bad. Mid range price.

Our south Texas sunsets have some of the most amazing red hues. I'm so glad you had a chance to share our view... It's my favorite way to end the day, although a little earlier now than it used to be, but that just means you can hang around and have a drink afterward! More

We went here cause we wanted to eat our anniversary dinner on the water. We had never been here before we were driving by and saw the restaurant on the water. We walked in and an older lady with a ponytail escorted us to our table and my husband asked if we could be seated at another table because we... More

I'm sad to see what could have been a restful experience having dinner and enjoying our free sunsets and the boats passing by was tainted by a poor seating experience. Thank you for sharing, and we will see how we can improve on the experience for the next guest. More
