Very poor food at Dock’s and such a disappointment. Seems like it’s going the way of all things in AC. I remember wonderful meals in the past where everything was just fabulous but was really disappointed with the food.

Low quality, bagged lettuce-type salad, bad dressing liberally applied and cheap tasting, a great tragedy done to what was supposed to be seared scallops (unedible for me- burned butter, browned on all sides) and all food came out Luke warm or cold.

Heard from a friend who went the night before the crusted tuna was also no good.

Cold apple crisp with gelato to finish- sigh.

Don’t go back if you went before and loved it. Don’t try if you haven’t eaten it.

Came by after a long day at work and as always I’m never disappointed. The atmosphere is phenomenal in addition to the attentive staff who always provide upscale and professional service. And the food...oh the FOOD!!!!!!! Delicious. Presentation sublime. Everyone should experience it at least once.

Opens at 4 pm, for happy hour, great raw bar and specialty items. After the oysters we always get some calamari, and finish up with lobster mac & cheese - outstanding

Asked to remove a hat. A personal issue was involved and no one cared to listen to why the hat was being worn until the manager was forced to be involved. He struggled to use common sense as well. In addition the food was very average. Had been a favorite spot. We have since learned from others things have deteriorated significantly in terms of food and service.

my partner had never been and we debated about a different place for dinner...could we make it by 8 to get a table the young lady asked on the telephone when we called...no reservation needed we were told...a good crowd of folk inside when we arrived...a couple of conventions in town might have been the reason, other than the wonderful, fresh always, tasty food...the salad, the oysters, the soup, the snapper selection were all excellently done...my partner found the crabmeat stuffed flounder with asparagus to be absolutely divine...he is already talking about making a return visit...the only drawback was when the server tilted the oyster tray when retrieving it and icy water spilled on the table and down my legs.....things happen...just sorry it happened to me.....
