If you want good Royal Reds at market price ($22/lb) steamed and seasoned put this place on your list in Gulf Shoes. Casual, comfortable and courteous staff. Brandi was our server and she was excellent.

You never go wrong by going to Doc's. The shrimp, oysters, and clam strips are always a winner. Service is always good too.

The food is good, especially the fried shrimp. It's a mom and pop type establishment. It's inexpensive and the staff is friendly.

Great Gumbo, quick service, fairly priced and staple in the area. All food is good, we usually get it to go from the Canal Road location and eat in at the Hwy 59 locale. We always hit Doc's when we visit the area.
