Dionner on a Saturday. Not crowded/no wait for a table at 7:00. The food was quite good. soup was hot and creamy, salad was salady, prime rib looked good as my wife didn'[t want to share (haha), and my Guinness pot roast was vey good. Good sized portions. Service was just kind of blah.

Try a lunch at The Docks. Their lunch menu is limited but you will find something that you like. Its an up-scale lunch menu that is priced very attractively. In cool and cold weather the inside seating is quite nice. In warm and hot weather you have your choice of inside or outside. The deck bar is great for drinks... More

I was with a party of 8 after a long hike in the woods. We all asked for water, the staff brought us each a glass and a pitcher so we would not have to wait for refills. The place was fairly empty as it was about 3pm. We were not rushed. I had the parmesan encrusted walleye. It was... More

Always a solid experience. Prices are on the higher side but worth the treat once in a while. Otherwise we would go there more. Prime rib is EXCELLENT and Friday Tilapia fish fry is awesome! Cons: parking

We went to docks on New Years with a group of friends. It was a generally good time expect they were really crowded and only had one bar area and the servers kept cutting the dance floor. But it was New Years so I excused it as circumstantial. They had two bands one was pirate radio they were good. We... More

We came for dinner at a dark November night and the parking lot and area in front of the main entrance was poorly lit. The valet parking functioned well. The ambience of the restaurant area is at the low end but we enjoyed our ribs and prime rib and the service was good.

Dock's is that first place that I have found that serves tilapia for their Friday night fish fry. Although it is all you can eat, I have never made it past the initial generous serving. I look forward to returning again.

My wife and I recently stopped here on a Saturday evening for dinner and a light snack. Docks Restaurant's outdoor Tiki Bar deck (6,600 sq. feet) on a bluff overlooking Bang's Lake has the best view of the lake in town. The food here was pretty good. The bartender was just ok and not overly friendlily. Lots of smokers. We... More
