Ate here for dinner. It was ok. Restaurant ambience is non existent. Our food was good and came quickly and was hot. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable for the area. Overall there are lots of better choices in the area for food.

Can't beat the lunch deals at Doc's all winter long - for under $10, you get a full meal, plus drink & dessert. If you want to splurge, their Royal Reds are fantastic.

Some good stuff, some just bland. I usually like the fare here, when it's crowded it gets a little crazy. Skip the high end and go for basic Doc offerings...

We had dinner at Doc's (referred to us by a local) and we were not disappointed. I had the grilled fish (three strips of slightly blackened fish) and it was delicious! My husband had the fried shrimp dinner and they were very good as well!...More

Cannot make a trip to Gulfshores without eating at Doc's!!!! I had the Little Un fried shrimp!! Fantastic! My husband had the gumbo which he says is the best & he also had 1/2 lb of the boiled shrimp! He always enjoys! Will return!

There weren't very many people in the place but it took forever to get our food. The wait staff wasn't very friendly either. When our food did come out it was not good. Mine was burnt and my husband's was not cooked all the way...More
