This is a great place if you like eating outside, on the water, dockside with entertainment and good food. They usually have great music, this day they must have had some sort of open mic-day and the entertainment was sub-par. That is not the norm. If you are in the area you should definitely make a stop at Dock's!.

Everything you dreamed about last January -- dinning outside on a summer evening-- is done right at Docks. All that's missing are the palm trees. The bar is open, the band is playing, the food is casual, tasty, and the service is outstanding. Oh, the large outdoor seating area overlooks the calm waters of Bangs Lake. Being there at sunset...

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
