Ate here on the family vacation and everybody finished their plates! They claim to have the best fried shrimp in the civilized world and I’d have to agree, I did everything but lick the plate. Service was quick and friendly too! My wife got the...More

It sounded just like my kinda place. We arrived and it was close and workers were hanging a new sign, think it's gonna be an ice cream place. We're going to check out the Orange Beach store!

Showed up at 11:50AM on a Wednesday and found one of the two parking spaces left. After a 15 minute wait and a very friendly and hospitable staff, I chowed down on the best fried oysters I've had in years. I've had them at other...More

Ate here for dinner. It was ok. Restaurant ambience is non existent. Our food was good and came quickly and was hot. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable for the area. Overall there are lots of better choices in the area for food.

Can't beat the lunch deals at Doc's all winter long - for under $10, you get a full meal, plus drink & dessert. If you want to splurge, their Royal Reds are fantastic.

Some good stuff, some just bland. I usually like the fare here, when it's crowded it gets a little crazy. Skip the high end and go for basic Doc offerings...

YEP - this place is so good. They do not have a gluten free menu, but there are things on the menu you can get and the serve staff was very diligent about making sure we didn't order something that could have had gluten. Very...More

The fried food is amazing here - and I always stop when I am in Orange Beach. I had a friend I brought there say she thought it was dirty. It isn't the Ritz, but the fried Oysters and Chicken are great - and won't...More
