Nice lunch by the water

The service was excellent . The fish and chips were First rate. The crab Louie was good but needed more crab. The one made Bloody Mary was a great addition for lunch.

The view is lovely. The cream of crab is very good and comes with a little carafe of sherry to add as much as you like. We also enjoyed the Carolina slaw which was without mayonnaise and had peanuts which was a nice twist. The service was very good.

Great experience as part of the walking tour. Great Pasta and Shrimp and an amazing view of the Bay and the boast.

We had a light lunch here. I ordered the shrimp salad on croissant and it was delicious. We had good service. Beautiful view, nice clean restaurant. Would definitely eat here again when in the area.

If you are looking for seafood, the menu seemed limited. The food was average as was the service. It does have a nice view.

We sat on the inside near a window. The seating is staggered so that there are good views from all levels. There is also outside seating. Very nice atmosphere!

Made a telephone reservation at the Town Dock and asked the hostess that answered the telephone if they had entertainment that evening. (They usually have weekend entertainment during the season). Answer was "I have no idea". I then tried their email address listed on the website and didn't get a response. Started out on wrong foot! Had the Rockfish with... More

Yes we can do a better job of communication. Our entertainment schedule is listed on our website under "events", but certainly the response over the phone was completely inadequate. At the very least I would expect the person who answered to say " I am not sure let me check with someone". I am sorry our food didn't WOW you,... More

When you walk in the door and the smell reminds you of a hospital filled with disinfectant you probably should turn around and leave. Everything had kind of a funky aftertaste - from our waters to the cream of crab soup. Service was slow and prices were high for what you are getting. Yes the view are nice but the... More

I try to make sure that everything in the restaurant from the bathrooms to the kitchen to the dining rooms are clean and sanitary, but I can't say I have ever heard that the restaurant smells like a hospital upon entering. I am sorry our food disappointed. We usually receive great comments about our soup, but I will certainly make... More

Our family had a nice meal here while on vacation. It was a beautiful night, but still very warm. We sat inside right by the windows looking out at the water. Our server was very helpful with his menu recommendations. He was very busy though and we did have to wait a bit for drink refills and our check.

Thank you for taking the time to review Town Dock. While I know that a lot of visitors are on "vacation time", you still want to get your drinks and check on a timely basis, so my apologies for the lack of attention towards the end of your dining experience. More

We just returned from another wonderful dinner at town dock. Our service was excellent, the food is wonderful and it is a perfect spot for enjoying a dinner out by the water. I had the Rock fish which was not only excellent, but also a very generous portion and my husband had the crab cakes which was full of crab... More
