Pricey but good

They're a little pricey Lake Erie perch dinner 24 dollars. But they have live music and you can eat on the beach or inside. This all depends on how busy they are

Was looking for a place to stop for dinner that wasn't a typical copy-cat restaurant when friends were visiting. Docks has it all...good menu choices, lakeside location, and the waiting lobby is the beach! While waiting for your seat you can stroll along the beach sipping their famous Beach Blast adult beverage, the Manager's secret concoction. The restaurant was busy... More

What a treat we had when we decided to dine out with our large group of adults and kids. Even though there was a half hour wait on a busy Saturday night we were able to call ahead and have a table waiting for us. Delicious and unique drinks and extremely tasty fish selections as well as wraps and salads.... More

Planned to spend Sunday afternoon on the deck enjoying friends with the Gatlin Show. However the wonderful Ohio rain moved everything inside and across the street. We did have lunch at Docks though and enjoyed the food and the service was great.

This restaurant was insanely busy, but the wait was just fine because we got to spend time on the beach while we waited! We were seated a little sooner than expected and our server was very attentive even with all the people. We watched the sunset while seated on the patio which was amazing. The drinks were good and food... More

The food was just okay (actually my chicken salad sandwich was not that great, but hubby's food was good). But sitting outside on the water, the atmosphere and the views make you feel like you are in the FL Keys and not in Port Clinton, OH. We sat at the bar and had a great bartender serve us, she was...

The first stop on our annual trip to the Lake Erie Islands we wanted to try somewhere new and on the water. Docks is a very cool place, right on the beach, nicely themed Tiki bar with a lot of covered and open deck space and great views. Unfortunately the food did not match the great ambiance. Everything we had... More
