Everyone in my family loves seafood so I chose Doc Magrogan's, 117 E. Gay Street in West Chester for a celebratory dinner on the occasion of my son's new job in NYC. First impressions were good. The place has a friendly pubby clubby feel to it and there was a warm buzz coming from the Saturday bar crowd. The place was packed... a good sign. The wait staff was informative, attentive and friendly and the decor was definitely "Oyster House". Our appetizers: Oysters Rockefeller, Old Bay Peel 'n Eat Shrimp and a selection of oysters on the half shell were excellent. The shucker actually shucked two of the oysters tableside pointing out the Montauk, Katama Bay and St. Simon varieties. Entrees: two Bouillabaisse ($26+) and a combo of grilled salmon, large scallops and shrimp ($21.99). Everyone enjoyed. And the desserts were downright decadent. They have a good selection of micro brews and wine to compliment anything on the menu. Suffice it to say, we will be going back to Doc's. Fresh seafood is not abundantly available in the valley, especially in such a welcoming environment where they don't rush you even on a crowded Saturday night. And there was even valet parking. Reservations are definitely recommended. 2008
