We have discussed stopping at Doc's on several occassions. Today we did it. Not much to look at. Service was very good. Food good, but pretty pricey for the type of establishment. Enjoyed the experience, but would not be in my top ten places to return to.

The shack is exactly the place to head for your fish dinner--or shrimp, or oysters. But, to really put a smile on your face, order the gumbo as well. Gumbo is unique to the cook, and I've eaten a lot of different gumbos--home cookin' and out at the restaurant--but Doc's stands alone. A wonderful and deeply dark roux is so... More

Great place to go for fried and grilled seafood and chicken. Seems a lot of the locals come here. I had the fish filets and grilled shrimp. It was very good. The server was top notch too. The entrance is a little tricky getting into from the south. It's well worth checking it out.

This is a very friendly seafood place that my husband and I thought we would try from reading reviews on TripAdvisor. We tried the famous shrimp and onion rings..we were not disappointed. The shrimp wasn't greasy but had a light delicious batter. Between the two of us we ordered the fish fillet plate and the fish fillet and shrimp plate.... More

We love Orange Beach & while visiting over the years we have passed Doc's on Canal Road & their parking lot is always packed! While visiting at Christmas, we made it a point to stop & try the food at Doc's. There were 6 of us & we all ordered something different from the menu. The service was excellent &... More

We were at the beach and wanted seafood. Some of the folks we were with had tried Doc's before, so we all came here for dinner. It was kind of tough to get to, with a U-turn, then entry into a smaller parking lot. This place is not fancy, which was fine by us! We were seated right away and... More

Doc's is a 'must stop' while in the Orange Beach area. Seafood is great! Daily lunch specials under $10. Friendly staff, casual atmosphere. From the seafood to the chicken, haven't had anything there we didn't like.

Great food. Soft shell crab is the best. Staff is friendly and treat you like family. Seems like you are stepping back in time :-)
