Good service but not great food. Very expensive for greasy fried food. Great location & service but dinner was not enjoyable.

We had heard a lot of good things about this place and went there our first night. Loved having a great view on the water. Great crab and crab cakes. No complaints.

There was a lot of food to choose from, and the tilapia with the Parmesan sauce was outstanding. Great views! Would definitely recommend!

Wow!! We ate at this place b/c we received a generous gift card to use. We ate lunch once & then dinner at another time & both times were exceptional. The view & ambiance itself was well worth it. However, the excellent service was fantastic & our dinners were "over-the-top" delicious! It's very casual yet romantic in the evenings as... More

After trying to find a good fried seafood place we both ordered something else. Hubby got crab cakes which were great. I ordered yellowfin tuna. The menu said it was cooked medium rare and I said I wanted it cooked thru. The waitress told me I really didn't want to do that and brought me two samples. One cooked thru... More

Stopped by for cocktails and the views on a cloudy day, sat on the very comfortable patio. Got to see a single porpoise playing in the bay but the sunset never broke through. Really hadn't planned on eating, but started off with a tuna, crab and calamari salad, served Ceviche style. ($10.99) from the Starters selection. It was out of... More

Based on Yelp reviews and wanting to eat dockside during sunset, my husband and I visited Doc's. The waitstaff was very pleasant and prompt. That and the view are the only reason I gave a three star instead of one or two. We had the blandest clam chowder I have ever had. The Dos Rita was large but pretty tasteless... More
