With amazing places to eat all around, Doc's just doesn't stand up to the hype. The fried seafood is okay. The side items and grilled foods are awful. We were very disappointed this was our last meal before leaving. Skip this restaurant. There are several options that are much much better.

The fried chicken, gumbo and cheeseburger were good! The fried shrimp, just okay. The sides are not good @ $3 each..corn on cob, very small & flavorless. Mash potatoes, didn't get eatten b/c really bad. "Seasoned" fries, no season crinckle cut fries. The salad was a plain and just no good. Average to say the most.

By far the BEST seafood restaurant we ate at, they really do know how to do it right!! Service was awesome, prices are not bad, $6.00 to 30.00 something for everyone and it is all GREAT!! Would drive down just to eat.

Our last night in Gulf Shores a local recommended this.
The food was fantastic! The gumbo was the best I have ever tasted. They gave my husband so much shrimp he shared with me. Get there early, it was a Friday night & it was packed & plenty waiting outside. Our waitress was very good & friendly.

They advertise having the best shrimp and they really do. I could have eaten here everyday and not been tired of the shrimp. Our server was not very attentive but they were very busy. The food made up for the service.
