We were staying at the Marina and had heard there was a great restaurant nearby, so we walked across the road. On first glance, the place looked like a rec center, but we were assured that it was indeed the restaurant. We opted to sit outside, on the deck overlooking the lake, as the evening was lovely. The service was... More

the restaurant is kind of rustic, marina type. I ordered pecan encrusted tilapia but it did not have much in the way of pecans more like a thin coating of pecans? that was not very crunchy tasting. The food was lukewarm and the asparagus was hard. Wife ordered the crab cakes which tasted fairly good. But she had ordered the... More

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
