The Easter brunch was outstanding! Their seafood is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Highly recommend!

Great seafood house!
We have become such fans of Doc Magrogan's that we are planning a weekend trip to Philadelphia, centered around a visit to the flagship of their four PA locations. We live in Manhattan and have our "pick of the litter" when it comes to seafood restaurants; we are frequent visitiors to the Poconos and we are just knocked out by how GOOD Magrogan's is. As to the oysters, their selection is excellent, really first-rate, fresh and top-shelf quality. The specials are imaginative & wonderfully presented, service is terrific, the room itself has the feel of a old publick house writ large and when you leave you half expect to walk out and see the ocean, not a shopping mall in Moosic, PA! Doc has a good thing going here!

Seafood in Scranton? Who knew?
Away from the ocean? It doesn't matter. Really great, fresh, tasty seafood can be found right here. There were 12 of us, and we were treated well. Wait staff was attentive and friendly.

This was my second time at
This was my second time at Doc Magrogan's and I loved it even more! We had the same server both time and her service puts our experience over the top. The food is also incredible. The fresh quality of the food and the impeccable service will have me coming back for years to come.

Nice place to go after movie
I don't know that we knew this was an oyster house and that is probably their specialty. We did enjoy our meal but it left us wondering if it would be better if we like oysters.

Great Land-Bound Fresh Seafood
Had a group of 8 people to celebrate my Dad's 50th birthday. Excellent food for a reasonable price considering what you're getting. It is pretty noisy inside with conversations but we had not trouble hearing all the people in our group. Server was polite and prompt. Really a fun place to go.

The seafood was extremely fresh and prepared to perfection. Complements to the Kitchen. Service was very professional. Waiter
offered excellent wine paring and handled all our services (no lacky from the dish washing department delivering meals like some of the "frozen Meal" joints). Waiter deserved and received a handsome tip. Highly recommended for that AT THE SHORE STYLE SEAFOOD DINNER without the 6 hour drive.

Special Event lunch
We were celebrating a college graduation with a group of 10 for lunch on a Saturday. Food and service were excellent and the restaurant was able to accommodate our special request to be put in a more private setting so we wouldn't have to hollar across the table at each other.

Love coming here!!
My fiance and I come here quite often and we love sitting at the bar. The bartenders there are wonderful, but specifically, Mike. He always goes out of his way to make sure we are having a great time and always makes sure the food is fantastic, which is always is! The swordfish is delicious and every oyster we have ever had there has been spectacular! Can't wait to go back!!!

My Favorite Restaurant!
Wonderful Mother's Day meal! Always the freshest, most succulent seafood and great service.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The portions are a little small for the price but the seafood is always super fresh. A patio area would be awesome.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, good time. We sat up in the little room so the noise was not as loud as down on the main floor.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
ONE OF THE VERY BEST!
Loved this restaurant from the drinks right thru to dessert! Not a bad word to say about this place. Can't wait to go back. A little more expensive than other places, but worth it. You get what you pay for! GO, GO, GO!!!

Excellent Crab Legs
Visited Doc's with my wife and 6 year old son. We had a great time and the food was excellent. You can't beat the all you can eat crab legs. We also had he calamari appetizer and we both agreed it was the best we'd had anywhere.

Doc Magrogan's IS GREAT!
I don't know who their purveyors are, but the oysters are top-shelf, first rate, up there with the freshest (and I've had oysters on the shore at Wellfleet, Mass. & Long Island, not to mention Manhattan seafood restaurants like Docks, The Oyster Bar at Grand Central and Ocean Grill...) .They are also expertly shucked, have yet to encounter a shell fragment. How they pull this off in a shopping mall in Moosic, PA is no small achievement. Doc's Rocks!

From the beginning with fabulous
From the beginning with fabulous cocktails, to the entrees and the meal, Doc McGrogan's knows how to serve it up. The service was spot on and we never wanted for anything.

Travel Finds Unexepected
My wife and I travel a lot though out the North and South East and always looking for good seafood or sushi. While traveling up in my hometown area which I do not visit much I punched in raw seafood bar in my Yelp application and Doc Magrogan's Fish Market came up. I never heard of this place and the area in which it is located is actually new to me booming Montage Mountain area. The service was awesome and so was the food a very unexpected gem of a place found. I will definitely be returning.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Really didn't know what we were in for and what it was was excellent service, food and a really enjoyable time.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good dinner
We went to Doc's to have soft shell crabs. They weren't on the menu but I called ahead of time to make sure they were available and fresh. There were three if us and we all got the same thing and the dinners were delicious. No complaints from any of us. Service was great too and they had a gluten free menu which was good for me.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
You cannot beat the quality and selection of the freshest seafood inthearea. You get to pick how you would like it to be prepared. The salads, bread and veggies are excellent. Food delivery is always slow so don't go ifyourin a hurry or need to get across the road for a movie.
7/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Glad we found this spot
We were driving through the area and decided to eat at Doc's. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fun. My only complaint was that the server did not seem very attentive or have the energy of the restaurant. It was almost like we were being rushed. We'll go back in spite of that.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been there 3 times and all 3 times, the service and the food was great! What else needs to be said..........
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Doc's has a great menu. The fresh catch selections are prepared several different ways. I am not an oyster fan, but if you are, this is the place to go!
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ordered a variety of selections from the menu. Where we were seated you could watch the staff shucking the oysters, which was a nice feature. The old bay and Guinness shrimp were wonderful! Shrimp cocktail were very large but otherwise unremarkable. The item we were in awe over was the jumbo lump crab martini. It was the biggest crab we had ever enjoyed. You don't want to miss this one. The steamers were also well prepared in a garlic butter that was quite enjoyable.
We were given the choice of a 6 or 8 ounce fillet. Surf and Turf, lobster very small, no optional size upgrade. The fillet was over charred on one side.

Went for the oysters..
We had a special occasion to be in Scranton for and decided to take the family to Doc's for dinner. I like fresh shucked oysters. My two college age sons that go to school in Scranton like oysters. We polished off four dozen before dinner. Usually they have a great selection. That night (a Sunday night, Labor Day weekend), many of the oysters were sold out. That was a disappointment. We did enjoy the available oysters. I had broiled shrimp, my wife had the special, seafood pot with clams, mussels, scallops, snow crab, potatoes and corn on the cob. One son had the crab cake sandwich, the other had the oyster po' boy. Dessert was various mouses. I skipped, everyone else choose and enjoyed one. We had a great dinner and will go back again

Special nite out
Took my husband and his son to the restaurant for my husband's birthday. Was our 1st time & lucked out getting Lyndsey as our server. She was extremely friendly and made us feel right at home. She had a thorough knowledge of the menu and was extremely professional. The food came out in a timely manner and steaks were prepared as ordered. Would recommend the Crab Bisque and Maryland Crab Soup. Did not indulge in the oysters, but have friends that rave about them.

Best raw oysters
I'd been craving oysters since the day I got pregnant & this was our first night out since having the baby. So delicious! We had about 18 oysters between the 2 of us. Definitely satisfied the craving I'd had for nearly a year!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
On the half shell
Doc's was recommended by a friend who knows we love great seafood. We weren't disappointed. We had fresh oysters which were super fresh, meaty, and expertly prepared--nice and clean. The Maryland crab soup was delicious despite a little on the salty side. I didn't care for the Old Bay seasoned butter, but it certainly had plenty of flavor. My arctic char over a bed of risotto was delicious though the honey-based sauce was a little on the sweet side. My wife had a broiled combo plate with great scallops, shrimp and salmon with nicely done potatoes and seasonal veggies. We were only disappointed that the dessert tray was all the same--creamy parfait type desserts. Of course, we're huge chocolate lovers. We'll go back.

Awesome meal - great find!!
We found this rest last minute while at the University of Scranton visiting my son. I had the talapia broiled with mashed potatoes. The dish was heavenly.....
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
the food and drinks were great service great my only problem was that the restaurant was very loud

Out of Lobster
After a hardy email hyping "Lobster Month", we hurried up take advantage of the generous pricing...At 7:30PM , they were out of lobsters completely. Since we're regulars and customers from their first days (lots of turn-over) we've had a very pleasant conversation with the latest in a string of managers. She awarded us a rain check and a bunch of free oysters.
There's always a good time to be had where the waiters are particularly friendly and attentive.We missed the lobsters, but it didn't put a cramp in a splendid evening!

Service from the start was
Service from the start was great. Loved the Slurp and Burp drink with Stella. . Great presentation, and the finish was cool.
Food was only good, not great. I had the 24oz. lobster, which was fun but not very flavorful.
My wifes stuffed shrimp was good, but again not great.
The desert selection, once again needs to be brought back to the boss' table and you really need to think about serving desert. Real desert. A 2oz sorbet of almost key lime is just a waste of time. A nice piece of Key Lime would have been a great finish. But I feel you're missing out , and so are your diners.

Best Oyster house I've been to.
We were in town for black Friday and saw this restaurant during our early morning shop. I was interested by the idea of an oyster bar and returned later to try it out. And I was not disappointed. The food was fantastic. They were even accommodating for my wife who is a complete vegetarian. Great food, great atmosphere. Overall great restaurant!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is our second time at Doc's and the first time we came for lunch, and was so impressed with the food that we had to come back for dinner. This time, though, I ordered the crabcakes and not impressed. The coconut shrimp was and still is my favorite appetizer. They didn't have the drink I ordered the first time we came but I substituted with the rum punch and that was very very yummy!! We will definitely be back.
