Staying @ a nearby RV resort (Pandion Ridge ) we ordered take out after arriving late . We were not expecting the amount and the quality that we received. Do not miss this when in Orange beach or Gulf Shores.

Stopped to have some fried shrimp and fried oysters and they didn't disappoint!! A pitcher of beer and heaping mounds of shrimp and oyster (and tasty hush puppies) plus good tartar sauce and make your own cocktail sauce all in a friendly local dive....a great stop!

A year after the first time, and it's still amazing! Brought the whole family this time. So glad we came back. Oysters, fish, Shrimp and clams. So much food. The place was hopping, but the service was great...

The staff was extremely courteous and friendly. We ordered the platter that had fried oysters, shrimp, stuffed crab, hush puppies, and gumbo. The oysters were perfect!!! Shrimp was great, stuffed crab was delicious, and the fish was delicious and fresh. We definitely will be back!

Doc's has a real homey feel to it. Families with young children were eating there. The food is supplied locally. The margaritas are served in a mug and were excellent. The cocktail sauce is made to taste since you get to make it. It starts with horseradish. Then ample supplies of ketchup, hot sauce and Worcester sauce are available at... More

This is where the locals eat for everyday Southern, mostly fried, seafood & chicken and potatoes, turnip greens etc. Just good everyday eats, nothing fancy, good value. My ratings are based on value to cost.
