"Nice little seafood eatery around the universities of Philly. Friendly waiters, good Ahi tuna, creative cocktails.
They also have quite a selection of regional oysters.
Would eat here again.

"This restaurant does well with the appetizers and soups, like the New England Clam chowder or the lobster bisque. I would recommend for lunch. However, their entrees are not worth the price. For example, the filet minion is priced high but is really not great quality. The sides could be better cooked. The portions are pretty small as well."

"Overall a good experience, however, our server was on her 3rd day at the job. While I realize food service professionals have a hard gig our server struggled to pace the meal/ordering properly and actually read us the entire menu twice over (at least). Great atmosphere and good food. Management might want to spend more time training/testing staff before having them out on the floor, especially for moderate-large parties."

"We went for the all you can eat crab legs. They were meaty and easier to get out of their shells than any I've had before"

"This is probably our tenth visit to Doc Magrogan's in West Philly. Our son is in school nearby and we have greatly enjoyed our visits to Docs as the wait staff and the food have been great.
However, on our latest visit, the food was not good and the waiter was at best indifferent to us. My wife and I tried the lobster shepherds pie special from the St. Patrick's day menu - I am glad we shared it because one was bad enough. Picture a bowl of overly water downed mashed potatoes with a bag of frozen peas and carrots and you have our meal. We could not find one piece of lobster in the dish.
Like I said, we love docs and I am sure we will be back as we love the food and the wait staff. One poor experience will not cause us to stop coming."
