Been there several times over the course of this season and the service is non existing to say the least. Very disappointing as the quality of food is not spectacular! Won't go there again and can't recommend it.More

Attended The Docks for our 40 anniversary dinner and had a fantastic meal for a decent price. I would highly recommend the French Onion Soup and the Whitefish dinner.

After eating here a couple of times came back with family to give them another try, as both previous times the service was extremely slow and the servers were not trained as they should have been. We are in Bayfield often and will not return...More

Located by the marina, just outside of town. The restaurant itself is interesting. The ceiling slants down toward the back making it feel more like a typical family style restaurant than anything unique. The chairs were quite uncomfortable, especially for anyone that is on the...More

We go here for traditional fish and chips. They're good. Last time a little greasy and too battered. Mostly really good.
