Last evening it was the end of a rainy day and we needed to get out so we met Suzy at Docs Seafood in Orange Beach. We had no expectations beforehand but had heard that the local seafood was good there and that they had great specials between 4 and 6 pm. Worked for us so away we went at 5:15 and hoped for a great experience.
The building itself didn't look like much but there were cars outside so in we go!
Once inside we found it to be ultra casual beach type surroundings with lots of colour and simple furnishings.
The Gumbo was very good and the plate of food was more than I could eat. This was the fish, stuffed crab and shrimp platter and it was $8.95. There was more than I could eat so Richard had to help me finish it up... The fish was Asian Catfish...not sure if that means that Asians caught it or it came from Asia...the latter would seem all wrong for a restaurant that is so close to the Gulf...
The fellow who served us, John, said the place has a two hour wait on a Saturday night in the summer!
