The menu has many choices. Servings are large, well plated, and feature local products. My favourite meal is bruschetta bread and BBQ wings (which are on special Thursday evenings). The outdoor patio overlooks the river and the docked boats, one of the best views from a local patio. Indoor atmosphere is nothing special, small bar area and large seating area.... More

Went for lunch and we ordered their Burgers with fries. The burger at 8 ounces was excellent. We had the Dock burger and one burger with bacon, mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Each plate had enough fries to feed two people so consider getting one plate with a salad. Only one waitress who was clearing tables, working the cash and also... More

We enjoyed a great lunch on the patio. A great lunch menu and the special of the day. Both the food and the service were good. To bad the view of the harbour wasn't better.

Also, food is mainly pub style. Not pleased. Will not likely be back after giving the restaurant 3 visits over the summer.

After golfing near Bayfield we stopped at The Docks last week and the draft beer was nice and cold, the salads were yummy and the weather was beautiful on the deck. Two less than desirable aspects were the smokers on the patio (seemed like everyone smoked) and our waitress was slow to check on us. If it had been very... More

My husband and I were working in Bayfield and staying up the road at the Bayfield Village Inn. They recommended the Docks as a good place to eat, so we checked them out ....four nights! Their selection is good, as are their prices. Service is friendly. We were there for their wing night too, and that was super busy, but... More

A good meal. Ihad the burger and fries and it was good to see the burgers are hand made and not pre-purchased patties. The waitstaiff was super polite and very willing to be helpful. If you're in the area this is a great place to grab a meal.

Great solid roadhouse food and we always stop in when we sail through Bayfield. Friendly people and filling food in a nice atmosphere. You can't go wrong.
