I have been to Docks a dozen+ times and have yet to be disappointed. An excellent place for lunch with a client. The fish specials are always reliable and the staff are well trained.

After not having been to Dock's in several years, we returned on Feb 16,2006. We will probably never return. My dinner arrived under-cooked, while my table partner's was served. They took my dinner back and returned it again in about 10 minutes --- still under-cooked. I asked for a new serving which appeared about 20 minutes later. The food was mediocore. For dessert I orderd an ice cream sundae that was being served in parfait glasses. They ran out of glasses and served the sundae in a dish - a minor disappointment. Overall the food was sub-par. To their credit the server did not charge for my dinner - but I was not looking for a free meal - just a good one.

I love Dock's! I have turned on many locals to this find, and they are still in my debt. I have had many of the menu items and I think the food and service are very good and the value is great! The thing that most intrigues me is the Clam Bake on Sun & Mon. A wonderful bread basket, salad, steamers, muscles, corn-on-th-cob and potatoes and either 1 2lb or 2 1lb lobsters for a price in the $30's! Kids, ya can't get that in Ohio! I don't like restaurants that value quantity over quality, and I am used to eating in mostly "high-end" places, but Dock's is a must visit place when I am in the city (10-14 time a year). Like Jean George, Blathazar and the Stage Deli, it is like "home" to me.

Both of us in my party ordered lobster rolls and chowder for lunch. What a letdown! The lobster tasted off and was not very plentiful which was fine with me under the circumstances. The chowder was okay at the Eastside Docks but then I tried the Westside Docks and the chowder was subpar. There's no excuse to load up a chowder at a seafood place with celery and subpar clams. It tasted like they added a bit of cream to canned chowder in the kitch. and then brought it out. We also got steamers at that visit and they were very good. However, they served them with movie theatre butter instead of real dairy butter? Why?

My wife and I have visited Docks many times, and with lots of friends. Always a pleasure, the food was good, and the service was nice. Geat Raw bar for those interested. Not a problem to park either, safe area. I would go back in a minute.

My wife and I have eaten at the East Side Dock's many times, have taken friends from out-of-town, and have always enjoyed it. There's a large selection of fresh fish simply prepared and many specialties. The shoe-string sweet potatoes are one of own favorite side dishes. Portions are generous and the lobster specials (weeknites) are a delicious bargain. Noise level is boisterous and a little higher than we like, but the food and service more than compensate.

The portions are small so if you are hungry don't go to Dock's.
