This is a nice place with some interesting menu options. Crab is everywhere in the menu but the best is the crab sandwich. Lou salad was just ok and avoid the artichoke and crab dip. Prices are ok with a nice view of the boats.

Town Dock has good food very convenient to St. Michael's Marina. You can sit inside or out with a beautiful view. Service was a little slow at first, but I think they must have been finishing up with another table or two. Once her attention was on us, it was better. Food served promptly and it was good NOT the... More

I am glad you enjoyed. Sometimes people think we might be the "everything fried in the same oil" kind of place, but we are far from it. We don't take advantage of our great waterfront location by assuming guests will put up with mediocre food for the view. We try to win you over one guest at a time. Thank... More

Thank you for giving us five stars. Autumn is a great time to visit with warm days, cool nights and a little slower pace than the summer. The harbor looks great at this time of the year. More

Party of 4, seated promptly, waitress was very attentive and efficient. Drinks were well prepared. The seafood special had a great red sauce and was piled high with shrimp, mussels, clams and was delicious. The oyster Poboy was good, had 8 oysters done properly and was tasty. A great view of the harbor with inside dining, as well as outside.... More

Thank you for the five star rating. We strive for five stars with every guest. I think our menu is interesting and offers preparations that you can't find anywhere else in St. Michaels. Everything we make is from scratch. Of course crab cakes, but also seafood risotto, plenty of seafood, pork & lamb chops and sea scallops with fried polenta... More

For many years it has been our tradition to start our Labor Day weekend with lunch at "The Doc". The Bloody Mary's were delicious as were our soft shell crab sandwiches. Service was friendly, competent and was just an overall nice way to start the holiday. Sit outside and just relax.

Our bloody marys are large and full of good old Eastern Shore flavor. It's been a great season for soft shell crabs which are brought to us from just 10 miles down the road and always fresh. It doesn't all come together without the friendly and efficient service. Thank you for reviewing us. More

Big place with indoor and outdoor seating on a large deck which is right next to the docked boats. Mussels as an app were delicious as was the crab cake sandwhich. The Cioppino was not very good at all - the fish and and shrimp was rubbery.

Sorry about the overcooked ciopinno. I can tell by a few of the reviews that I need to remind our servers that table checks, especially after food has been delivered is mandatory. Thank you for mentioning the items that were outstanding. More

I am sorry for the initial wait, but thanks for sticking with us. Every once in a while there is some mis-communication which can usually be rectified by bringing it to someone's attention. Not the way it should have been. Yes we try to suggest appropriate responses and the "no problem" is always one that bugs me too. Hopefully you... More

It has been awhile since we tried it for dinner....had fried oysters and calamari for appetizers....calamari were average with a bland sauce, but the fried oysters were like hockey pucks.

Thank you for the honest review. If your Server didn't ask you if everything was to your liking then we dropped the ball. Oysters we should have taken back and recooked properly. Yes there are a lot of great restaurants in town, but I would hope you would give us another chance for dinner; we cook some really great dishes... More
