This is not a fancy restaurant, so the pricing does seem to be a bit high for the kind of place this is. However, I do expect to pay a little more for seafood and the options range depending on the sophistication of the item. For example you can get fish or shrimp sandwiches and wraps or a Mediterranean or... More

We had 3 days in Port Clinton and ate at Dock's twice. The lunch food experience was very very good and we thoroughly enjoyed eating at the outside bar in the evening. We did not find anything anywhere near as good in Port Clinton. We will be spending a great deal of time in the area in the future and... More

Sit and have drinks and/or food waterfront on Lake Erie. We stopped in late afternoon on a Sat and it was busy but we didn't wait. We sat outside at a table on the deck. Live (LoUd) music was playing over toward the bar area. Server was attentive and friendly. Drinks were good. Food was decent but overpriced for what... More

Unless we were willing to sit at the bar, it was going to be a while for a table on the patio. No problem - wouldn't be the first time we ate at the bar to get seated right away - Cheddar's in Pigeon Forge and Lady and Sons in Savannah. Fortunately, the bar is outside with a view of... More

I love love love docks!!! It's a little expensive but it's caught daily and once they are out they are out if you like to eat fish!!! Secondly I love the atmosphere. If it's a little noisy which it can get you can eat on the tables on the beach. Grab a beer and a chair and sit and watch... More

We dined at Dock's Beach House on July 19 with a group of 20 people. We couldn't believe how great the service was for that large of a party. Everyone loved the food...several said it was the best fish they'd ever had. Cindy was our waitress and she went above and beyond in her service! We will definitely return next... More

Great frozen drinks, mid-range prices, and decent food. Best part: Docks has their own beach front. There are games (volleyball and bags), lawn chairs for lounging on the beach, and the bar/restaurant area is a tiki-style covered area just a few steps up from the beach area. Service was pretty lackluster, but the environment makes up for it. Ask for... More
