All I can say is "this place has the best crab cake & cream of crab soup anywhere!" Just writing this review makes me want to jump in my car and go eat at Dock Street.

What a great find! Dark little hole in the wall bar (which we love) with good food. A couple outdoor tables near the dock to enjoy summer days, too. The bar staff takes this place from very good to great. Spent an enjoyable rainy afternoon...More

We stopped into this place based on some of their great reviews. But it kind of looked like a dive bar. I was expecting to be disappointed, but the crab cakes were amazing! Best I've ever had. Very little filling/breading so much flavorful crab! We...More

Best crab cakes I've ever had. Casual atmosphere. You can expect a wait of 30-45 minutes, but it's worth the wait. Their crabcake dinner is market priced and on our visit that was $30 a dinner.

One of the best crab cakes I have ever had. Period. Great atmosphere too. No reservations so be prepared to wait. Bit it's worth it.

This is a very dark dive bar but it's always crowded. Don't let it intimidate you - it's a pretty good place to get a drink and appetizers. It has typical bar food and the usual beers and mixed drinks. I would recommend, at least...More

I would not suggest dock street for a group of 40. The Federal House or McGarveys would be able to handle a group of that size. Both of these places have a larger seating areas and the food, at both places, was very good... More
