This was a great place to go to since the 60's. My parents would eat here at least once a week and would join them when I was not in school. Doggy and Marvin were great people persons and Jeff did not seem to be like them, but his wife was great. Jeff did spend a fair amount of money... More

The food is average, the atmosphere average, but I see it may be under renovation, and the location is ok if you get a view of the water over the parking lot. There is a Tiki bar right on the water and that is nice.

The end. I've been going to Davy's for at least 30 years. This evening I made my very last visit - at least until they get a new owner. The quality had been going down steadily for a long time. This evening's visit turned my stomach. I'd heard rumors of the owner's gambling problem affecting the business. Tonight it was... More

My wife and I have been to Davey's Locker on many a New years eve. We have always enjoyed ourselves and the meals, except for this last time. Our waitress was doing double duty being our waitress and the bartender at the same time, so our service suffered. They didn't have a bottle of a very popular wine. Our meals... More

Ate here for the first time last weekend and the food was excellent. We had a fairly large group so we split the stuffed mushroom and calamari for appetizers, both were great. Everyone enjoyed their meals, I had fried scallops, there were two that ordered the Mediterranean scallops, two others had fish and one had the steak tips. All would... More

When we inquired at the hotel about a casual seafood place for dinner, Davy's Locker was recommended. We were excited by the prospect of some good seafood when we saw the restaurant's location right on the water. We were disappointed with the experience. The dining area seemed somewhat crowded with dirty carpeting. Our Oysters Rockefeller appetizer was good. My order... More
