“Great Place by the Water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

I love coming here on a nice day, they have multiple patios to enjoy views of the river! Most summer weekends they have live entertainment which keeps the atmosphere energetic. The food here is just ok but the drinks are always delicious!

“Very Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We visited the flea market that was being held in the big barn. Once I had enough fun at the flea market, I found my way to the Loading Dock Bar. It was so nice to relax outside on a patio table with a beer and watch the boats drive by. The staff was extremely friendly.

“Always a Favorite Stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The Dock Salsa is a great pair with beer and the fabulous view of the river. I also usually get the fish fritters. Our group has tried most of the items on the menu and we've never been disappointed.

Interesting relaxing place. Prices were a little steep but for an occasional visit was worth it. Plan on going back.

“Great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

A friend and I stopped in with our kiddos for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. It was 93 outside but the restaurant is all open and has a great breeze flowing through. There was great music and a beautiful view...and the fish tacos were delish!
