We have been back every year since. This time it was his graduation dinner and we brought the extended family. The food is excellent, portions are generous and the service is always top notch.

I would highly recommend Docks.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLittle neck clams were excellent;Little neck clams were excellent; crab cake up to its usual high standard..5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent - Will ReturnWe went to Dock's to celebrate my daughter's NYU graduation, so we were there in mid-afternoon so it's hard to judge how Doc's will be at night.

Our entrees - seafood gumbo and cod - were just fabulous and we literally cleaned the dishes. The only downside was the quality of service. The waiter was not delaying or anything, but he had this attitude, which made us uncomfortable. We had a feeling that he did not really want to serve us. Hope that we'll have a different waiter next time around.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMReliableDocks is always reliable with really good seafood and atmosphere. I recommend it for a casual or business lunch or dinner. I would recommend Docks to anyone looking for a restaurant with consistent service and food.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNice, but priceyThe food is good and the surroundings are nice. Service is attentive if a bit rushed. The principal thing to note is that the pricing is clearly aimed at expense account diners.
