This is honestly the last chance I'm giving this place. I live in the neighborhood and have visited this establishment twice before. The cuisine is MEDIOCRITY at best! The fried seafood has no flavor and it is too overpriced for what it is. The scallops look like they are on steroids. I don't think it's genetically possible for scallops to be the size that they were in my seafood platter. I was scared to eat them. The location has to be the reason the place even has a volume of business. For their price points, you can do so much better in the neighborhood. My appetizer, dinner and dessert was 49 bucks, and it was just me for takeout, half of which went straight to the trash can anyway. I am so done with Docks. NEXT.....

Not sure about the rest of the fare, but their whole-belly, Ipswich fried clams are by far the best in the city. And this coming from someone who grew up in New England... Thankfully a NY / NJ establishment FINALLY got it right.

Went there on Sunday at 12 noon and my party and I were quickly seated. My garden omelette and my wife's salmon omelette were done very well and the basket of home made muffins and biscuits were delicious. The service was excellent and quick and responsive to our needs. We stayed over two hours and were never rushed. Well worth going back. Not a bad word to be said and I am usually quick critical.

Food is less than average, service was bad. We never saw our waitress except to get drink order, she never returned for food order, we ended up ordering from hostess. Def won't be back and def don't recommend.

4 of us for dinner and we all were displeased. Starters were the clam chowder, the crab cocktail, and the littlenecks. The littlenecks were not good and the soup was fair. Main courses were the grilled salmon which tasted like salt and the vegetables were raw. The grilled swordfish was dry and the portions were tiny. The key lime pie was the only good part of the meal.

Had dinner with a friend here last week. We each had the Caesar salad, which was fine (it actually comes with anchovies here, if you like). The linguini with white clam sauce entree was fine. The fried fish platter entree was fine, however, the baked potato had obviously been around for a number of hours, and then placed in a microwave. The side order of creamed spinach was undercooked, and had a very unpleasant taste. The bread pudding dessert was tasteless. Service was good, except the young woman continually referred to us, and those at adjoining tables, as "guys" for example: "Are you guys ready to order?" "Are you guys doing all right?" A gentleman should be regarded as "Sir," a lady should be regarded as "Madam," and when addressed simultaneously, should be addressed as "folks," as in: "Are you folks ready to order?" Though Docks wasn't an altogether bad experience, I certainly see no reason to return.

I had a guest over for the weekend, so I thought - Docks would be a nice to treat. We were sat by the manager and no one waited on us for 15 minutes. We must of stopped 3 waitresses and 2 busboys to ask for our orders. No one took our order. And no one was interested in helping us. When we were served, the bread was stale and the meal was subpar for the price. I do not recommend this place.
