Very good. Gulf shrimp and jalapeño cheese grits! Really nice job with this. Cheese grits were perfect. Good music, great drinks and perfect ambiance! Can't wait to try it again.

We enjoyed our visit to this Doc Ford's very much! There was a bit of a wait, but it was a Friday night so that's to be expected. You can call ahead and make reservations to avoid that! They have some excellent drink selections and...More

The staff and atmosphere is always welcoming. I have visited Doc Fords on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. I recommend the grouper.

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!
