The food was good but the service was very slow. The view is very nice but 12 dollars for a craft beer?? No thanks.

This is a lovely restaurant right on the bay. The waiter was very accommodating and efficient (although the kitchen was a little slow getting our lunch out to us). Obviously popular, the restaurant was filled with diners all enjoying their meals. The restaurant has a...More

WOW What a restaurant! Came here for dinner with friends (early-bird) on a Sunday. Had never been to OC or this restaurant. Cute decor and we chose to eat outside. Right on the water, it was delightfully quiet, scenic and delicious! I had the clam...More

Casual is fine. Khakis and a polo for men, skirt, dress or pants for the ladies. Some people gi in shorts but look out of place.

Description
Owned and operated by the Hieb family since 1987, The Doc’s Place offers inside and, seasonally permitted, alfresco dining in a luxury yacht basin - Harbour Cove Marina. We are open 11 months of the year (closed in January) and serve a traditional breakfast on Sundays and lunch and dinner daily (see www.thedocsplace.com for seasonal hours). Luncheons include jumbo lump crab meat Caesar salad – delicious; cheese steaks and Kobi burgers – the best around. Dinners embrace fresh fish; steaks and chops (our beef is competitive with any ‘steak’ house), shell fish - shrimp, clams and mussels; and accompaniments such as pomme de terre frits, cooked-to-order pasta and seasonal vegetables from New Jersey & the world! Our bar introduced this area to 7½ ounce martinis and Manhattans, poured to a meniscus! Our wine list is an oenophile’s delight. Our limited seating Thanksgiving Day dinner is legendary. Our private parties are spectacular. Try us, again!
