We tried both the shrimp and oyster loafs. They were both very good as was the seafood gumbo. The place is well used to say the least. I guess the name fits.

This was a great restaurant!! The service was above average and the food was very good!! The building was clean and well maintained and crowded!! This is a popular place to eat you may have to wait in line at peak times.

Had Doc's for a late lunch while visiting the area. The food was good but seemed slightly over priced compared to similar restaurants in the area.

We really loved this place. The food was great and the service was on point. We actually ate at Doc's two nights in a row while in Gulf Shores. I ordered the fried shrimp both nights because they were so wonderful.

This place is great for large parties. The food is good and the service is the same. If going for lunch on Sunday, get there at opening. It gets VERY busy and the wait can be quite long, but worth it!

A little spot you could easily miss. Once in side it's a simple place. Fantastic food, great portion prices. Great for anyone.

We have a golf trip to GS every year and we wind up eating here two times!! Oysters, shrimp, gumbo are fantastic. Service is great. P.S. the picture on Trip Advisor is not this location of Doc's.
