My husband and I decided to go with my son and his girlfriend. I had the beef dip sandwich with fries (AMAZING!!!!!!), hubby had the Smokehouse burger (gave it a 3 out of 5), my son had the Peroxides for an entrée (very yummy) and a Chicken Caesar Wrap with bakes (asked for baked) sweet potato... read more

This restaurant is very popular, maybe because it is right on the harbourside. The food is tasty and well presented, but nothing really special. If you are a couple, you seem to be placed in awkward sitting areas, and the tables are cramped together. If with a group, you have better luck. Thursday night is half-price wings, which are wonderful.... More

Wing night is great! Every Thursday, beer on the patio. Best spot in town to get together with friends for food and drinks. Burgers and wraps are also tasty. Most weekends feature live bands. If you're visiting Bayfield, The Docks is a must.

Stopped by around lunch with 3 kids under the age of 5. Great waitress. I don't know her name but your manager better say thank you because you made the meal. Patient and spent time looking after us. Great food. Quick, and hot. Kept the kids busy with artwork too!

Exploring Ontario's west coast a week past Canadian thanksgiving, we found many seasonal places had just closed for the winter. We reached The Docks just as we were beginning to doubt whether we would find what we were looking for. It was quiet on this particular day. We had beers, burgers and fish and chips, all tasty and with excellent... More

We enjoy the patio in good weather, but the inside restaurant is huge, so likely to get a seat even if it is busy. We've been 4 times in the last 6 weeks or so, and enjoyed each visit except the last one. The last time it was wing night, and they must do wings up ahead of time, as... More

Antojitos, small greek salad and a glass of wine. It was a bit of an inclement day, therefore we were unable to enjoy our dinner on the deck. It would certainly have been a beautiful view had we been able to sit outside. The food was tasty and the wine was decent. My adjusted rating was due to the noise... More

This restaurant is okay but the food was average,the service was satisfactory but not outstanding considering that it was not busy with only three tables occupied with patrons. Whitefish, salad, fries priced much to high @ $21 this should have been no more than $14.99 for the meal.
