“Great views good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

It is a little pricey but you are paying for the spectacular view. This place is very busy. It has great outdoor seating and a wide variety of menu choices. The servers were all good. it is right next to the marina and was perfect for us staying on our boat.

“Mixed Feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

I have been to Doc's several times and the view is nice and you can take children to this restaurant. Prices are average for the island, lunch for two with no alcohol and just entrees will run you about $40-$45 + tip. What draws me there is the outdoor seating and view when we have family with kids visiting. However, service can be good or can be average, it is never consistent. With some training they could stand to gain consistency which would be a positive. The menu can be limited. Standard salads are generally always on the menu and the food is fresh but lacks a bit of creativity and imagination if you're a "foodie". Overall, a decent place to eat and enjoy a nice view with good (not great) food. As for service, you just never know what to expect. It has come to the point we only go there when we want a view and have kids with us.

“Outdoor Eating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

We had a table on the deck. The weather was beautiful and the view of the sailboats and the ferries was great. The seafood was good. Loved the Manila Clams.

“Do not eat here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This restaurant serves food that is uninspiring at best, today was the last time I will waste calories on it. I gave it three tries, to give it a fair chance, only to be absolutely disappointed and swear it off completely. Since then I have "eaten" here several times as a result of group outings which I unfortunately agreed to attend only to discover that it required going to this restaurant. If you eat here be prepared for Sysco frozen food and plain cocktails provided by a server who is not trying to overshine the food. If you MUST eat here I suggest trying the special, if it is an off-menu dish because it is more likely to be fresh, but otherwise just go somewhere else. For the view go to Harbor Public House. For somewhere kid-friendly (and in downtown Bainbridge AKA Winslow) try Pegasus, Rooster, Streamliner, or Bainbridge Bakers.

“How I wish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

It was better....great location. Fish and chips pretty bland. Mussels and clams a bit under cooked and the clams were too big. My seafood Louis salad...I hate to say it but not sure the crab was fresh. Stick with drinks here. Honestly I'd go to the pub up the road but I can't rKey kids
