Even their Southwest Cobb Salad was awesome. Also got ribs and they were hot and delicious. Love the Doc Ford's sauces at the table. Delicious. Also have cool tshirts. Busy place but we were served quickly by a very professional server. You gotta go!!!

Had lunch with family at this restaurant. We selected Doc's since TripAdvisor reviews were very favorable. Seated at a table overlooking the water. Seafood was great, atmosphere and service was excellent. Delicious, fun lunch... We will definitely visit again.

We had a lot of fun while dining at Doc Fords in Sanibel. Service was exceptional and seafood was good. I enjoyed the key lime pie as well. Lots of TV’s with football was great. Thanks.

Call them. Not "fine dining" but great food, excellent service and a quintessential FL atmosphere. If they are open, I reommend the fish tacos with papaya pico de gallo. Happy Easter!
