    Docks has the best quality seafood in AC. I tried the crab cakes for the first time which were delicious. I was a little disappointed by the presentation, but that’s all. The cucumber martini is my favorite. Highly recommend for seafood lovers!

    Dock’s is nice option for seafood and good alcohol selection. The atmosphere is classic with a twist of modern. The open design lets the noise level creep up a bit when dozens of conversations are going, but it’s not enough to ruin your experience. I would recommend Dock’s for a first visit and more returns.

    The food and service were great but my friend and I were sat next to some very drunk patrons who were rather unpleasant and definitely made a mess of the bathroom. Not the fault of the establishment but not a great experience overall.

    We were there for Restaurant Week. This was our 4th time to dine at Dock’s. Never disappointed, always good food and service. Three of us had the filet mignon which was excellent. One person had the shrimp, also excellent. Kim was our server - very attentive. Highly recommend Dock’s.

    The food at Doc’s was delicious! My husband and I enjoyed the broiled oysters and asparagus crab soup as appetizers. They were perfect! My entree of fried shrimp was classic- five jumbo shrimp with crunchy, not greasy, coating - and my husband’s crab cakes were flavorful, although not pure lump crabmeat. Both the cheese pie and key lime pie winners!

    Began my Restaurant Week meal with the smooth, creamy & delicious Asparagus & Crab soup...always a winner. My entree was the Potato Encrusted Flounder in a Beurre Blanc sauce with Asparagus as the side vegetable on the plate. Moist and tasty flounder with al-dente cooked asparagus. Very good! Took my Key Lime Pie dessert home to enjoy later. This dessert is always outstanding & this year's pie didn't disappoint! "RJ" my server was attentive and professional. Overall a very pleasant dining experience!

    Great service and delicious seafood at Dock's on a Saturday night. They seated us upstairs where a private party was just finishing up. The noise was a bit distracting for the first half hour or so, as the private party broke up and several attendees stayed by the upstairs bar conversing loudly. But our waiter made everything alright, and even had the kitchen split a house salad three ways for us. My advice: always order the special.

    Been there many times over the years and its always been a treat. The place was modernized in the last few years to make the room much larger and spacious. If there was a downside before it was how cramped it could feel. That has been solved with the makeover, so it is totally aces! Never had a bad experience or a bad meal there. Always delivers.

    had monday dinner at Dock's. The service was excellent with both our server and the team approach to providing quick service. Our waiter provided a couple of excellent recommendation after we asked some questions. My girlfriend enjoyed the special seafood risotto of the evening, we both enjoyed the cold oyster selection that was recommended and my crab au gratin which is one of thier classic dishes was to die for. Would definitely go back. Was superior to all the casino restaurants we went to and in most cases more reasonable.
