Great view and wonderful food.

We were in Victoria for a holiday and have been to this restaurant before this trip. We always have a great view of the water and the food is great.

We ate at The Docks every night of our stay in Victoria. What brought us back? Tasty food at affordable prices; good view of the inner harbor; friendly and attentive servers (especially Mark who also provided detailed information on driving to the airport.) Highly recommended!

Our waiter was Mark C. and top-notch! He was very friendly and was able to answer any of our questions. In fact, every staff member we saw was friendly. Our food and drinks came quickly after we ordered; we didn't have to wait for a drink refill. The food was amazing! The Catch of the Day dish was halibut; everything... More

We went there for dinner, staff is very attentive and friendly. We had the salmon burger and a salmon salad, both very tasty! We took advantage of the Martini Monday, the drinks are delicious!

Crabs here in Canada are called Dungeness crabs, and they are similar to English crabs, perhaps not quite so chunky, but they taste similar. However Dungeness is not a place in England to inspire an idea of a culinary delight, it is by the sea but is quite dismal and dreary. So where did the name come from? My Dungeness... More

My husband and two college-aged sons ate at The Docks on our recent trip to Victoria. We arrived around 5:00 pm and we were immediately seated at one of the last tables available. We sat inside and had a lovely view of the harbor. We all ordered fish and chips and at the advice of our server, Chris, we ordered... More

Just finished a nice meal at the Docks, located very close to the hotel we were staying in, in Victoria. We booked an hour or so before and were shown a nice table with a view. The waiter was helpful and outlined our drink and food choices clearly. We had a mix of drinks and my wife chose the lime... More

Mark did a great job waiting on us. We had been on a cruise ship for the last 6 days so we have been use to being spoiled for service. And with Mark he never missed a beat. Was able to describe the special and even the way the steak would have been prepared for us. We showed up a... More

The restaurant is located in a beautiful spot, right out by the water, with a lovely view of down town. Our waitress was Michelle and she did a great job ! Very helpful and kind. I would definitely go again, and I would also highly recommend it.
