Doc Magrogan's Oyster House
Good experienceWent on Mother's Day. Was a little early for our reservation but they found us a table right away. There were special menu items to honor mom, not to mention Sunday brunch, and regular menu. Ordered drinks they were great. Ordered calamari, mussels, and little neck clams. Sent the clams back because they weren't done very well (sandy and a few unopened) they apologized and replaced our order in no time flat. I've had calamari at most places in West Chester and Docs is without a doubt the best. Everyone ordered a different entrée, catch of the day was a little expensive for the portion but all of the food was delicious. Everyone went home satisfied. The service was great, everyone was nice, food was great, overall it was a great time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOld Menu BluesWe brought my brother and his wife to taste some baked oysters, but alas, no "doc a feller" oysters. They were my first oysters and I was convinced my brother would also eat an oyster if he could only taste those. I also wanted them to try the crab cakes, but they ordered fresh fish. Win some. lose some. Altogether a good night.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHostess Manager Needs More TrainingI would like to thank Chris (the manager?) for accomidating our party when the woman up front would not (I'm assuming she was the manager of the hostesses). He was very nice, attentive and went above and beyond to find a table for us ( we had an additional two people deciding to join our party at the last minute for a total of 6 people), while the woman showed no effort in finding us a table. The restaurant was very clean with nice decor. The food was delicious and exceded my expectations that I had after reading the restaurant's bio. Andy was our sever and he too was also very nice, explicative of the menu, patient, and made sure we were well taken care of. If not for the woman up front, the dinning experience would have been flawless.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience was excellent--goodOur experience was excellent--good food and good service. However, they forgot to check us in with Open Table when we arrive and they later disputed our points. I provided the receipt and it was cleared up but I would rather that they were more diligent because I was made to feel a little defensive. We WILL return though!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a bad timeJust as every previous visit, Doc's delivered. The special appetizer (cucumber and crab salad) was amazing with very fresh ingredients and clean flavors. Fantastic beer selection too. We'll definitely be back! Thanks again for a great time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner!We are regulars at Doc's. Usually go for the raw oysters, and then enjoy something fabulous from the menu; but this time, we shared the mussels in white wine and garlic sauce - to die for!!! - and then each had a Classic Steamer Pot! We loved the steamer pots from last summer, but all they've had on the menu is the lobster steamer pot. We asked if the steamer pot menu would be coming back, and our server said the whole steamer pot menu would be back for the summer, but the Classic is always available!!! We were thrilled to hear that, and even more thrilled with our Classic steamer pots!!! SO good!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and frendsGood food, very loud and vibrant scene.

The service was great, we didn't feel rushed, which is always a good thing after a long day. Thanks for some great seafood. The calamari was the best around.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been to Magrogan's numerousHave been to Magrogan's numerous times, all good experiences. This time however, was a disappointment. I regularly drink Ketel One Vodka, but was told they didn't have any. We also requested horse radish for our oyster crackers and they didn't have that. Even though they had 2 managers on duty, no one thought to go to the store for horse radish or the liquor store for Ketel one. I was disappointed.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousWe ordered crab cakes, mussels, clams, scallops, and fish and chips. The back room with fireplace was perfect for our small group. It is quite noisy and active in the bar area. We would be excited to return for the all you can eat specials. The service was great and the food was done to perfection.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time hereIt was our first time here ~ we will definitely be going back.

This particular night is all you can eat crab legs. Awesome!!! bring em on. First order shows up... delicious. Then the bad news... sorry we're all out of crabs. How do you run out of your special. The good news they cut the tab in half. I'll still go back. Maybe the person who does the food ordering had a rough day.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Raw Bar - Best in WestGreat Raw Bar - Best in West Chester by far - good wine list - good beer selection - we will be back3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulGreat experience!
