My family has been to the Orange Beach area many times. For some reason, we had never eaten at Doc's. They claim to have the best fried shrimp and we weren't disappointed. It was the best fried shrimp we had our whole trip.

My families favorite place to eat in Orange Beach. Best boiled shrimp and fried Oysters on the Gulf Coast. We never miss stopping here when we are in town. Well worth the wait!!!

Overall it was a good dinner. Staff was great, it was your average food at average price for area seafood. Atmosphere is a little rustic, maybe intentionally but it doesn't feel that way. If you don't like fried everything, options were limited.

The soft shell crabs were delicious!! We had a wait but the line moved fast. We browsed merchandise while waiting, and sampled a Bushwacker. Dinner was fresh, and delicious. The service is super friendly and fast!! Great find!!
