By The Docks
It was nice. Shrimp was just previously frozen then fried. Boring. Waitress was very good tho
I was not impressed.. The food was mediocre and overpriced. My waiter was great. It was not worth it to me but thats just my opinion. I was very disappointed with the crab dip.. It was mostly sauce and i didn’t see barely any crab meat.
Excellent service and fantastic food!! Restaurant week menu was excellent!!
Great place to dine
Food is always fantastic. We arrived about an hour early for our reservation. Staff was still able to seat us right away
Reviews were correct...best crab cakes ever! Steak was excellent! Seafood imperial was great also! Fried shrimp were really good! Ohh...greek salad...wonderful! Service was outstanding! Will definitely go again!!
Crab cakes were served old and tasted very fishy
Crab Soup was very thin vegetable soup with no crabmeat and not served with a soup spoon, by the time the spoon arrived soup eas finished with a dessert spoon
Rockfish was just ok
Our whole experience was exceptionally great,Our waitress awesome! We will definitely eat here again and recommend your restaurant to others, Thanks
The food was excellent. The service as ok once we got it. We know there is a shortage of staff but the service was really slow.
The noise level was off the charts. We could hardly carry on a conversation at our table.
I'd recommend By The Docks for the food but would caution my friends about the noise level.
The food was good the portions size were HUGE SERVICE WAS GOOD ALSO
The food and service was good. Considering the price of crab meat the price for a crab cake was good. Our only complaint was the noise level. It was really loud in that corner.
A little loud and the light could bet turned down alittle The food & service was great.
I made a reservation and was seated immediately upon entering. I enjoyed the Asian fried Brussel sprouts. They were hot & tasty& crispy!! Everything I’d hope for in such a dish! Then came the moment I’ve been waiting for… my Maryland crab cake!! Easily the best crab cake I’ve had in the entirety of my existence (no exaggeration). It was broiled to perfection! Brandon the server was quick, friendly and helpful!! I would definitely come again & definitely recommend!
Fantastic crabcake and amazing service.
Couldn’t be happier with my visit.
Their crab cakes are excellent and on Tuesday they run a special. It is well worth it.
My daughter and son-in-law took me here for my birthday. My daughter and I ordered the Bowleys Quarter’s Salad. My son-in-law ordered the crab cake sandwich. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food. Our waiter, Brandon, couldn’t have been better. His service to us was perfect in every way.
All in all we had a perfectly delightful experience. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
If you are looking for the best crab cakes, this is THE place! A bit of money but 100% worth it! They are large and delicious!
We went for their Tuesday night crab cake special which included 2 sides and a dessert for $22.99. It was fabulous and our waiter Marco was exceptional!
Best crab cake and..huge! Service..impeccable! Need to update their daily specials on the internet. Price $4 more than advertised but...Well Worth It!
Kudos to our excellent server, Patrick. Delicious brunch and reasonable price.
Although it was a overall experience, the service and communication fell short of my expectations. The server was hard to locate, and did not come and check on us as often as I seemed fit. After receiving our food we had to hunt down and locate our server to find out where my sister in laws garlic bread was. The menu indicated pasta dishes received garlic bread, only to find if you get shrimp scampi (listed under pastas) but opt to receive rice, it changes the entree to a non-pasta and does not receive bread. Plates were not cleared promptly and when they were removed there was no communication if appetizers were fished. We truly felt as though because there is an automatic gratuity added to tables of 5 or more people the server neglected to serve the table as promptly as he would have if we had 4 people with no auto grat.
Met our daughter there. Great location for us all, outstanding seafood and prime rib, nice selection of sides, and dessert.
The cream of crab soup was mostly goopy flour.. the salad was yellow.. the prime rib couldn’t be cut from the bone (was was it still attached to the bone?!), the crab cakes were all filler. We paid $178 for two adults and one child for TERRIBLE food. I understand the cost of crab is outrageous.. increase the cost, we would have paid more for good quality.. or REMOVE IT FROM YOUR MENU!! We will NEVER return or recommend this place.
This was our first time dining at By The Docks. The food was pretty good. My husband’s food was better than mine. I ordered the Fried Trio and when my plate arrived, the crab cake was a little dry and my scallops were fried a bit too long, but the fried shrimp were delicious! We also had the PEI Mussels and crab soup and they were both delicious! It was extremely and our waitress was working very hard to keep up with each table she had to serve.
We would definitely like to dine there again but maybe on a weeknight when it may not be as busy.
Server was great. Attentive and knowledgeable. Could not have been better.
It's not often that we go to a restaurant and everything is outstanding,but during our visit to By The Docks ,it was. I had the Broiled Seafood Platter and my husband had the Lamb Chops And Cake,and both were excellent. Our server,Marco, was very pleasant and attentive. This was our first time here and we definitely will be back!
My favorite go to for consistency - crab cakes are huge and delicious! Stuffed shrimp are filled with crab cakes and Monday nites are lobster specials. They have only had to raise their prices a little due to the seafood shortage but on their lobster specials, prices are the same as last year - unbelievable!!!! Tuesday nights they have crab cake dinner for $22.95 !
It’s dessert - bet u can’t finish that!!
We went on Thursday and the special was steak night. One of us has the porterhouse and the other had the lamb chops. They were cooked perfectly. In addition to dinner being excellent the piece of baklava cheesecake we had for dessert was the perfect ending to a perfect meal.
Our waiter Cody was very kind and friendly, he took great care of us
It was great. Great food and great service!!
Very disappointed in crab cake. Have had before and was excellent but not this time. Crab cake was dry, no real taste and not hot. There were 6 in my party and 5 of the 6 of had dinners that were not hot.
Not sure what the problem was but it will be a while before I return. Will give it one more chance, hoping for that delicious crab cake I have had in past years.
For a birthday - I ordered my all the me favorite at this restaurant - stuffed shrimp!! It’s stuffed with crab cakes and are they delicious!! Outstanding as usual!
Food was good but take your patience with you. Not his fault, it was our server's 2nd day. 3 of our 5 dinners ordered were not correct when delivered, and after requesting the one dinner be corrected, it still was not right. They served us a diffent dinner on their menu. Our server even came back and verified when ordered, and the kitchen still got it wrong serving us the incorrect dinner. This wasn't an odd request, they just served the wrong meal. Sides were not brought with the meal, salad came with the hot food. They asked when the reservation made was this a celebration and I said yes, a birthday. When I asked if they could bring a piece of cake out after dinner I was asked if I had any candles because they didn't, so I don't know why they asked. It was just one thing after another which made for constant confusion while trying for everyone to enjoy their meal and eat at the same time. The food was good, but like I said, take your patience, and appreciate those that decide to work, but definitely a lot more hiccups than expected. And before anybody ask, yes we still tipped him well.
We had an overall good experience, but the crab cake and stuffed mushroom capa weren't that great. They were dry and lacked seasoning.
Was delicious 😋I loved it and would greatly recommend it
The host was fantastic food was great I really had a good time
Everything we had was great! We have been a few times and drive over an hour to go.
Our server was very good and provided a great experience. Food came quickly once we ordered as well as our drinks. For the most part the food we ordered was delicious. My fiance's lobster special was not great but steak and cake was good and fish as well.
The food was delicious as always. Large portions and terrific taste. Kudos to our server Caylin. Great job on a very busy day
We are always manage to get the same waitress she is such a excellent waiter she knows exactly how to make her customer feels like they’re the only one even though she has lots of tables.
