My wife had crab cakes and there were three good sized ones so She gave me one. They were good. I had grilled shrimp that was good, but should have been taken off the grill a few minutes earlier. They give you plenty of food, and not as expensive as people had told me (my shrimp was $13.99 and crab... More

Great local and extremely popular Scottsboro dining venue with a casual flair. It's a nice way to top off a day on the lake. The owner works hard to insure the guests make a return visit and the servers are at your becon call. We reserved ahead and asked for a table on the deck complete with covered outdoor bar... More

The food is always good. A little pricey tho. I love the atmosphere sitting on the patio and service just depends on who you get.

This restaurant is right on the Tennessee River, near Goose Pond Colony golf course. There is an outside deck with great views. They have different specials each nite. The fish special was good on Tuesday. I recommend this place if the weather is nice.

After reading some of the reviews, I was hesitant to suggest dining at the Docks. However on such a beautiful spring day I didn't want to pass an opportunity to spend some time by the lake. It was a chance worth taking. We chose to eat on the deck. The facilities aren't polished, but the view is beautiful. The service... More

I was recently in Scottsboro visiting a friend for his 40th birthday and we had dinner and a birthday party at the Docks. I am always interested to read through the negative reviews of places to see why people hated it. I am usually surprised as my experience often differs from others. I tend to throw out the worst reviews... More

I'm from Atlanta, and have to travel to Scottsboro every now and again for work. I look forward to this trip on Thursday nights because I ALWAYS eat at The Docks. It is a cute, tiny place on the lake w/ a great, local atmosphere that I just adore. On Thursday nights, they have a local musician that plays a... More

Influences akin to an upscale gulf coast hot spot, juxtaposed with views of smoky vistas, conjure up a hint of a chill to the soft southern breezes coming off the water. The meal starts with an extensive list of beers that are complimented by the knowledge of the servers inclusion of special ipa's that awaken the beer snob in all... More
