We eat at Docks regularly with our family. It is located on the beautiful St. Mary's River waterfront in downtown Sault Ste. Marie. They offer a wide variety of items on the menu. The dining room has a large vaulted ceiling and with two walls of windows overlooking the river, it is lovely and inviting.

This is a casual and fancy restaurant all in one..You can use it for a special occasion, or for an everyday visit. Food choices are numerous, and very tasty too. Sitting at the window seating is second to none in dining with a view.

Location and view of river is beautiful. Lunches are great, but last couple of times that we have been there for dinner, something missing. Food not quite as good as it use to be.

Docks has a great location - located on the St. Mary's River. A nice patio (a bit of a fishy smell in the summer that cannot be helped). The food is decent, nothing OVERLY amazing but no real BAD choices either. The only problem with Docks is that if you're looking for a place to go out on the town... More

Beautiful building on the river, it was originally the Algoma Steel Mens Club. Several fine dining establishments failed in this location before the current owners took over with more of a casual roadhouse approach. Food is pretty good, but price of drinks has recently gone through the roof.

Our experience at Docks has been positive overall. The staff have done their utmost to accommodate our dietary requirements in regard to personal health concerns. Even during the busy periods there has always been time to listen attentively to the specifics of our requests. The quality of the food has been consistent as well as that of the service. I... More

Have been 3 times in as many years and have had the same experience each time. Location is excellent with a superb view of the river and bridge. Usually lots of seating and able to accommodate large groups. Even with reservations for a group over 12 people they only offer a single server, which naturally leads to poor service and... More

I've had the pleasure to eat here many times. I love the salmon salad and my husband loves the meatloaf. The service is great - fast and in the summer, the deck is a fun option for seating. Beautiful views of the St. Mary's River. A good bet.

Mediocre food, over priced, our spinach dip was noticeably microwaved , the perch had bones in it and fajita was tasteless. Not impressive I don't advise anyone to eat here its horrible and over rated.
