Went with a group of friends for a night out. Service was slow. Seemed to take a long time for the food to be delivered to our table. Food was good pub food.

We are frequent customers of the Docks and everything I've had has been great. They have an extensive menu, something for everyone. I really enjoy their pad thai and the chicken parmesan. The service is always friendly and the prices are decent. Nice location.

We dine at the Docks fairly regularly and the food is always awesome. The Smokehouse burger is faaannttastic!!! The staff are always professional, it is a great location near the river. The only drawback is that it is usually full. Just goes to show how great it is!!!

Had a wonderful dinner last night at the Docks. Always consistent with the excellent food and service. Enjoyed Angry Orchard and Guinness on tap. The blackened salmon was wonderful and done to perfection. Will definitely return in the near future

We were staying in the cottages down by the marina and walked up to the restaurant. The server was very nice and pleasant and the pub food was good. It was very busy and was recommended to us by friends that had been here when they were passing though on highway 21.

It seemed like a popular place as the parking lot was always full. We found it dirty, lots of flies. Waitress was friendly and provided good service considering the number of tables she had. Large menu. Food was just okay and pricey for the quality.

Our car club, based in London, Ontario, made the pleasant trip to Bayfield for our monthly meeting. Even the worst navigators had no trouble finding the place. The entrance is right off Hwy 21 just north of the bridge over the Bayfield River. Plenty of parking. The menu included seafoods, 5 selections of pasta, 11 different sandwiches, 9 salads to... More

Great menu, lots to choose from, a little something for everyone. Food was pretty good. I recommend the fish & chips. Try to sit outside, it's nice right on the marina.

Stayed a night in Bayfield for a get away and went to the Docks... We have been there before and it hasn't changed.... Great food and location. I had a seafood pasta with dill Alfredo... Excellent. Server was friendly and informative... Always a sure bet for food and service. Keep up the good work
