Everything we ate here was great. I understand they have another location in Orange Beach that is the same great food.

This has always been our favorite place to eat. We have enjoyed this place since 2000. I love the gumbo and the seafood platter. Always fresh and tasty and always friendly faces.

We had a great meal.The food was very good . A little expensive but we were on vacation. We soon discovered we were right in the middle of a wedding rehersal supper. No one seem to mind that we were there. I don`t think they paid too much attention to us.

Had a plate lunch there today. I had the fried chicken because I am allergic to shellfish. Everyone else in my group had various types of seafood. Service was good and food was good. If you want a lunch stop I would recommend,

Doc's Seafood is a favorite. If you like seafood this is the place to eat. Even if you don't like seafood they have options for you...our friend ordered a burger and loved it. Their fried snapper and Cole slaw is delicious.

Don't go there unless you want the best seafood around here or you want the best Fried Chicken in the civilized world. Small wonderful place to eat. Great service, great people, great food....what more does anyone need when they go out to eat...well maybe prices to be reasonable...Well the prices are very resonable. You really have to try eating at... More
