It’s not loud if your drinking. Everyone is yelling over the dude playing Jim Croce. I do disagree with everyone, the food is not full of flavor or is the portion large. What to drink, Doc’s is your place.

Great food, great atmosphere, great service! Portions are very good, my husband and I were able to share the Seared Yellow Fin Tuna which came with two sides. Tuna was seared to perfection! Ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer and they too, were tasty!...More

Only problem I had was deciding what to order. Great service, wonderful views no matter where you sit. Had the bacon wrapped shrimp. Not the best, but very good. Will go back to try other entrees.
