Made reservations at 7:15 didn't get seated until 8:20. The waitress was great and very nice even though I was very cranky. The food was ok. The outside area was warm and cozy with a fireplace and heaters. But I would have gone anywhere else if I knew I would have to wait that long.
The restaurant was quite cold when we arrived, but it did warm up when they put the heat on. I think the prices here are a bit high, but the views are wonderful from every seat in the main dining room. I have been coming to my parents house on the lake for 40 years and The Dock has the best views of any restaurant in the area. Excellent lobster bisque!
Good was delicious and staff were very nice and accommodating !
Lights kept going out so food was slow to come and when appetizers came we were not given plates. Food was mediocre.
Good service and wine was terrific!
We were disappointed to find that only a few tables could see the water. The host was very indifferent to all the small parties that saw a table close to the water, but were not seated there. The table he said was reserved never saw a party. The food was good, but nothing special. Our servers were very nice and attentive.
Table for 6 .. food slides off the table because of the extensions being put up. Todd was expensive for what you got not worth it. Also waitresses hair not back and tied .. daughter had hair in her burger.
Great food, outdoor eating space is comfortable and cozy
Worst experience of my life.
-We were celebrating our anniversary and made reservations for the outside dining area. At first they lied to us and said they were clearing the table, then they ignored us for 20 minutes and finally admitted they didnt have a table for us. They overbooked so we had to sit inside.
-before you go, ask if they have a wedding happening during your visit. The DJ was so loud it was impossible to focus on anything or even consider having a conversation. They should not serve dinner to regular customers while they have a wedding happening.
- chicken was overcooked and dry, it was obvious they dumped extra cream sauce on the chicken to hide how bad it was.
Stay away from this place…..
For foodies, food was about a 5 out of 10. The chicken of the champagne chicken was tough as leather. Needed to be marinated or slow cooked to be palatable… and way too pricey for what we got. The fried fish basket was OK, but no delicate flaked cod. The shrimp appetizer was raw in the middle. Not cooked properly. Obviously, still frozen when it went in the oil. More thought and care needs to go into BOH. As for the FOH, only one heater had propane in the outside seating, and we were a bit chilly. The best part of the meal was the cocktails. They were creative and delicious.
Food and service was good but my table was broken and shaky very annoying took away from the experience
Beautiful view, delicious food, great service and ambiance! These NY’ers will be back !
Very helpful server. Good food but a bit pricy. Nice variety of menu options. Pretty views of lake.
Server was good...... table had a serious wobble, requested to move was told tables were reserved (as was ours) and was told the manager would tuck napkins under to stop it from rocking...... that did not happen. Food was good, a bit pricey
Great view from the outside patio, nice ambience while eating at sunset. The food was very good.
The restaurant is lovely and clean, a beautiful view of the lake. The staff are wonderful- excellent host , who seated us and our waitress, Catherine was absolutely the best!!
She was very attentive, helpful and extremely pleasant- we will definitely request her next time we go.
Excellent food and service...as usual. When we are in the area we always dine and stay at one of Settlers Hospitality fabulous locations. Always constant and wonderful. Highly recommend.
visited Sun 9/26/21. Server was the best and that was pretty much the thing that made dinner almost acceptable. Calamari appetizer was obviously taken out of a frozen food bag. My steak was good but way overpriced. Presentation of food on plate was uninspired. room itself had no ambiance. Then at end of night we asked for check. We were told systems were down and we had to pay cash . Manager/owner was obviously afraid to come out and explain, so put burden on waitress. We worked out deal with waitress to pay bill.
Nothing place. Pretty view, ugly interior, lousy food.
The food was so delicious, especially the crabcakes. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Place is nice and clean and great views of the lake.
Very bad overall experience. Only visited twice this year and for the 2nd time in a row, when we set down at an outdoor table, it was very wobbly and extremely unstable. The first time we were able to somewhat stabilize with many napkins. In this case it was so bad nothing worked. When we asked the waitress to move us she started that all the tables where like that and everyone complains. After hearing this we walked out. What a terribly managed business! We will never go there again.
It was our 29th wedding anniversary and we recently moved to the Poconos and wanted a casual place with a view of the lake I found this restaurant online. The food was delicious and our waitress was wonderful! The staff was very friendly. I asked for outdoor seating because I thought we would have a view of the lake but there was no view of the lake from outside unless you are sitting closer to the back. Seating inside along the windows would have provided a better view.
Great service and food/drinks. The deck is terrific to sit on with perfect summer weather.
Disappointing. Prices are high for average food. Nothing is included. No bread, salad is extra. Only two desserts offered. There are other similarly priced restaurants that provide better food and service.
Waitress was friendly and had a great sense of humor.
Food was glorious, waitstaff was so-so. Views were amazing.
Food quality doesn't justify price. Host/manager did not want to seat us to the table we ask for, with explanation that she has bigger party coming in, totally okey if it was a truth. 15 min later she seat same size party at the table we ask for. Coming from the city, trying to enjoy lake and peace. Would never come back for dinnet there. Spend 200 on wine and food, just try some dinners in area, way better.
What a great restaurant! The food was delicious,and you couldn't ask for a better atmosphere. I can wait to go back. Hats off to the chef, every thing we tried was fabulous.
Overall a good experience .. 4 star was because pizza appetizer that 3 out of 4 who sampled the pizza all agreed it was not good. Bottom seemed to be ok but not the top .
Would not order it again
If you are eating outdoors, view of lake is limited, deck isn't that wide, and they keep the only two lakefront tables open for parties that might show up without reservations of 6 or more; even with reservations, our party of 3 could not sit lakefront, and we watched those two tables sit empty for the 1.5 hours we were there, early lunch at 12 (weekday, off season). We were 4 or 5 rows back and didn't have a good view, which was the main reason we drove there (an hour away) to have lunch. Don't know why they just couldn't put two tables together further back if they got a larger party, there were many open tables. Other than that, food and service were very good, the place was very nice.
Decent menu, great spot! Service was slow but totally fine.
Lovely setting with great food. Beautiful views
Food was good, but they drastically overbooked through open table. We had specifically made reservations for outdoor seating at 7:15 to catch the sunset at 7:34, but weren’t seated until a full 30 minutes after we arrived and totally missed the sunset. We had been looking forward to a nice, relaxing meal and sunset after a very stressful week and this delay totally blew it. Staff sort of apologized, but just ended up making excuses instead of a true apology. Everything after that was adequate. Food was good, but be prepared for an exceptionally long wait even with reservations, and don’t go with any sort of time table in mind.
Understaffed, overbooked through open table reservations online causing long seating wait times and food was cold when served
Our waitress was aweful she forgot just about everything, messed up the order, forgot to bring water and never refilled our water or soda or picked up dirty glasses or plates. We came to show our kids where we were married for our 8 year wedding anniversary. The pretzel board was amazing but everything else was a let down especially considering we have eaten there many times before and it has decided in value over the years. The kid never got the cookies that came with their kids meals. We had to ask another waitress for help when one of our mala was messed up because we couldn't find our waitress and waited a while. $130 down the toilet.
Very good swordfish dinner special! Very good fish tacos from the regular menu. Good drinks and nice wine selection. Really enjoyed the lovely lake view and sunset. Young staff tries their best. A very relaxing ambiance.
Food was terrible!
Place to try. Wonderful food, service and the view of Lake wonderful.
We love the option of dock and dine but the service at the bar was bordering on rude and the food was not very good. They also have a poor wine selection. Overall disappointed in the dining experience.
Food is good but they need to clean more
