As of this writing, June 24, 2014, the "Dock and Dine Restaurant" is but a memory -- the site of the well known lobster restaurant is completely leveled. Word of mouth has it that financial problems will prevent any rebuilding any time soon, if ever. In 2011 Hurricane Irene damaged the restaurant; it closed and rebuilt. In 2012 Hurricane Sandy...

Great job, great view, and our waitress was the best. We met family and was there for a few hours, eating and drinking. Everything was hot, and delicious!

This review covers several visits. Salads were terrific. Batter for fried fish was heavy, mixed drinks were disappointing, and prices were a little high. However, we sat outdoors on each occasion, and the beautiful view and excellent service led us to return with friends.

It's great to see this place rise from the ashes - well hurricanes and water - twice. The restaurant is due to be restructured : elevated higher. Given the restaurant's quick resurrection the place looks great. And the seating outside by the river is a great place to eat. There's a good selection of beers and a really good menu.... More

We stumbled upon this trying to look for the golf course. The seafood was delicious. And it was a beautiful day and we sat on the docks watching the boats. You must go here!

Celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday, our first visit since it re-opened. The pared-down menu is long on seafood, so don't go there if you are jonesing for steak. We had scallops which were very good, but both the rice and the veggies were undercooked. Yes, some people do like string beans crunchy, but no one likes rice that way! Others in... More
