We were cruising around on our Can Am Spyders, and decided to head to the Old Dock House about two hours away. Beautiful day, views of the lake and VT on the other side. We arrived at about 4PM, and there were only 4 people...More

Ordered a two-course meal with family and friends. I'm still dreaming of the coconut shrimp - something you should definitely get if you find yourself in Essex. It was quite due to them not having a liquor license, something they are getting. The chef came...More

We visited on a perfect late summer day. We ate on the lakeside deck, enjoyed the view of the lake, Vermont mountains and watching the ferry. They were very busy, but the service was friendly, the food and drinks good. We will definitely visit again!

Spur of the moment trip across Lake Champlain tonight on ferry to try out the "new" Old Dock restaurant-- with no reservations. Offered the last table outside, we gratefully took it.....but too many flies drove us indoors. Quite nice inside now... water views from windows...More

Great location to waste your time enjoying he view. Many happy memories but how they fade. Disappointing service & less than stellar food. My companion had the Chicken Club Special & was haunted all night & the next morning with a "sick" stomach. Suggest you...More

We stopped in to one of our favorite local restaurants for dinner during a violent rain storm last week. While we always sit outside to enjoy the spectacular views, we decided not to chance it because of the incoming storm. Good decision...almost! We got waited...More
