My husband and I went to the Dox based on reviews from friends. What a disappointment. It was busy downtown as it was the annual Poker Run so you would expect extra staff. Nope. We walked in and while there were many empty tables few...More

Stayed 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Waterfront and was given a $5 discount coupon to use for the restaurant. We chose to have the breakfast buffet. Good variety, good was hot and wait staff very friendly.

We had lunch on the patio with great weather and a nice view. You have to be patient with patio service which is cool. My daughter had wings and the carrot sticks were actually rotting (no, not soft or limp, rotting and slimy) My daughter...More

We decided to eat breakfast...the usual, 2 eggs, bacon and homefries...here's the kicker, you pay extra for the coffee...that was the most expensive part of the breakfast. Ask if you're not sure... 40$ (with tip) for a measly breakfast is gouging in my opinion.

We stopped in at Dox during July1 celebrations and had Strawberry shortcake and apple crisp that were spectacular! The place was very busy but staff were cheerful and quick with the orders. Nice view of the harbour and boats on the waterfront.

Slow service...although the staff tried...just not enough when it got busy. No sense to seating...younger loud sitting beside older quiet... It could easily have n=been managed better.

We had breakfast here the food was good. Waffles, Bacon, Snausages, Hash browns, Fresh Fruit. The coffee was good and the service was fast. Nice water view. We will probably try it again when the patio opens.

Went for my birthday dinner. Only reason we chose the Dox initially was that we had a gift card. Sure am glad we went as it surprised us. The appetizer we shared was amazing. It was the chirizo butter shrimp and it was delicious. The...More
