    I have zero complaints about the waiter, food or drinks. I do however have serious concerns about the bill. We paid with a Visa and we're charged, not once, but twice, amounting to over $140. Our first charge was for the entire cost of the meal, our second charge was for the entire cost of the meal PLUS a tip. I would not recommend this place to anyone who doesn't have the ability to pay in cash!!

    We usually love this place and the service is normally excellent. This time was slightly disappointing. It was Wednesday and my GF ordered the all you can eat crab legs. She enjoyed them but only a couple legs were delivered at a time. This is understandable but the waiter often disapeared without a trace for long periods of time. I finished my entree while we were still waiting for her first refill. We were there an hour and a half and she only received two refills, each with one set of legs. She would have prefered many more, but we had to go relieve our babysitter. For me, I had the mahi mahi tacos. The first one was good, but I slowed down, trying not to finish while we were still waiting for more crab legs. The remaining tacos turned cold, hard, and chewy. We'll be back again. Hopefully this was just an off night.

    Hats off to Doc Magrogan's for recognizing the veterans. Free 6oz lobster tail and a "brew". I had wonderfully fresh grilled swordfish and loved every bite. Great food and a simple menu.

    This is a restaurant that has a specific client base. If you like.oysters this is the place for you definitely. Overall our experience was mediocre as once the waitress found out we were not that big into oysters her interest lapsed in our needs. We went because we received a gift card and wanted to try it out. If you are into oysters this is the place for you.

    Went to Doc's for the first time. Heard some good things...expected more, didn't get it. Made reservations, arrived early, seated right away. Waitress was SUPERB (Melissa?). Ordered a few raw clams and oysters on the half...PHENOMENAL!!! Super-fresh and delicious. Where the place fell flat was the dinner menu. It's a limited menu (which is fine) but the selections are limited too. Entres are pricey ($25-40). Food was "good", but by no means outstanding for the money. After such a great raw experience, you want it to continue, but that was not the case. Got the Pan-seared scallops, were "just" overcooked and rubbery. They were edible, so I opted not the send them back. Might go back...not sure. PS Old Bay butter for bread NOT tasty...

    We made reservations for four for the big night and were not disappointed. We moved to three different tables because of physical restrictions of one of our party. They were very accommodating and the service was excellent. I did not care for the Grembalata (?) sauce as one of the choices for how I wanted my fresh fist prepared. But I did not send it back. The food was really good, very fresh and the birthday boy couldn't wait to get his taste of the oysters. He was delighted with them. The dessert was a great surprise, too. Chocolate Crème Brulee. Outstanding!

    A little overpriced for the Scranton WB area. Ordered Maryland crab soup and was disappointed, tasted like it was canned vegetables with barely a trace of crab. My partner did enjoy the lobster bisque. Main course of casher encrusted talapia was excellent and stuffed shrimp was also good but sparse in number. Service was very good. Bar area is very noisy and busy.

    Doc's has the freshest variety of oysters in the entire state of pennsylvania! Fresh catch of the day is only available as 1 type of fish. There are several other selection such as mahi mahi and salmon. I would prefer to have a variety of fresh catch fish selections because one becomes tired eating the same fish that you serve. The greeters at the door, to staff who serves your dish; they are well-trained,always kind, considerate and helpfull. This a excellent restaurant for movie and meal date night. To tired after shopping,pop in, relax with a salad, fish dish a cool drink. You are good to go!

    We always go here and have been very satisfied. On This particular Saturday had an unusual long wait between appetizers and dinner due to a "large tables" order. Service (waitress) was great but disapponted in long wait and food was not hot when arrived ( one out of four dinners even later than others). Place was not packed as we've seen in past. would have been nice if offered some comps but never offered. Will go back since we love this place but somewhat concerned this isn't a trend.

    It took quite a while for our server to appear. I asked the price on the whole lobsters & no one in the restaurant seemed to know. I asked for the 3 lb she said they didn't have any! I took the 2 lb. still no drinks at this point. Someone started cleaning a nearby table, never finished it,left all the cleaning supplies and rag laying on the table and left. Not much ambience there. Our food for a seafood restaurant was poor. My husbands steamed combo, aside from the salmon was just ok. My lobster, which was supposed to be 2lbs was more like 1.5 & since they didn't clean it, none of the body meat was edible. Our server had to be tracked down for drink refills. We spent over $100 and I feel we were taken. We won't be going back again.

    My wife got a long black hair in her entree. At that point her appetite was gone. Unacceptable for a restaurant of this status , even though I'll admit events like this are not 100 percent preventable. In my opinion they should have offered us coupons for future meals. I didn't raise any stink since it was our 20th wedding anniversary and she wouldn't want me to do that. She was a great sport about it, the staff was professional, didn't charge for her meal, and offered her anything free off the menu, she wasn't interested though.

    They changed their menu, and added dishes the cooks arent able to prepare. Rare steak medium well, salmon steak well done, not enough tableware, a lot of people running around doing nothing. The quality of the food from this restaurant has gone down really fast, oh by the way, the prices have gone up!

    The restaurant was frigid to the max. Many locals wore jackets, in August, because of the AC. Since we were on the road, in the summer, we had no jackets, so just shivered. Food was OK, but hardly worth freezing for.

    shrimp stuffed with crabmeat we enjoyed the lobster bisque soup and the appetizer of coconut shrimp was absolutely fabulous!the noise level was horrible the place is acoustically unfit.there is some music playing but you can't hear it over the noise of the service staff and the guests.I asked to have my filet prepared medium. It came well done quite a ways through the steak and very pink only in the middlewhen I ordered it I said medium and not anything more.I didn't want to bother to send it back and wait for another one because I just really wanted to finish my dinner and get out of there. It's not a comfortable or relaxing atmosphere the tables are rough and again the noise level is cacophonous

  • Why having a reservation?

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    We had a reservation at 5:15 prior to a concert starting at 7 pm in the nearby Pavilion. When we arrived at exactly 5:15 we were told that there would be a 15 minute wait to get a table. "We have a reservation", I proudly announced. "Let me check... Yes, you do. But we don't have a table available. We will have one in 15 minutes". Really??? When I asked to explain the difference between having a reservation and not having one the only answer they could come up with was "We are really busy tonight because of the concert". Wasn't a point of having a reservation on a busy night exactly that - to avoid waiting for a table??? 10 min later we were seated That initial interaction didn't set the right mood for the evening. But the food was great

    Our meal at Doc's was absolutely delicious. The waitress was named Dana and she was great - very friendly and welcoming, quick to get back to us between courses, and really knew her menu. Food came out quickly and we loved every bite!! The only thing I would suggest is a little pop of color here and there -- little bland on the walls.

    Anniversary Dinner. Reservation for 6:30 & seated immediately. It took over 30-35 minutes for our meal and it did not seem busy at all. Menu not very easy to read & does not state what you get with your meal. My filet/lobster dinner which did include red little potatoes & green string beans which was not stated on meal description & had to ask what you get with it) $34 dollar meal and you don't get a salad or soup. I had the salmon/shrimp combo with string beans & potatoes, $24 meal, salad or soup not included. I was still hungry at end of meal, that rarely happens when we go out to eat at a nice restaurant. Food was very good, but will look for another restaurant where you get more for your money, totally over priced for dinner meals.

    I've been to Doc's many times and the reason is simply because it never disappoints. Due to my work schedule, this is the first time I've been there in about a year. Being on vacation and Doc's being kind enough to email me when something good is going on, I made reservations for "National Oyster Day". It was pretty crowded, but my online reservation assured me a table even though I was 10 minutes early. I was glad to see it was as I remembered it with some new items on the menu - I always love trying their new creations! Being busier than normal slowed things down a bit, but our waitress Ashley was extremely pleasant, attentive and provided a great overall experience. Can't wait to go back again - even though it might be another year.

    Kind of disappointed with my last visit.. I always called this place my favorite restaurant in the Scranton / Wilkes-Barre area.. Not sure what has changed, but service was lacking, and food was disappointing.. Prior to this visit, it was a no-brainer when I got to choose.. Now, not sure if I will be in any hurry to go back.. Hoping it was just a bad waitress, and maybe the cook called off or something..
