We stopped at Dock of the Bay for lunch. The food was very good. It is in a very nice area and close to all attractions . The shopping area is up & down the street & a beautiful park is close by where you can look at the St Lawrence river & all the boats going by.

people were friendly - it gets crowded, service can be a little slow but when you are on vacation and looking out on water who cares! Loved their pork BBQ ask for extra sauce it's delicious. Actually ate here for lunch and then went back the next day for dinner.

Ribs were out of this world. Beer was cold and the owners are great. The view of the town dock is great.

As a person who lives in the area, I have been to this establishment many times since they've opened as a business. They have always struggled with being customer service orientated and in recent years I have chosen other places because of that. However, with some visiting family in tow, we chose to go there so we could sit outside... More

Awesome location - shrimp was a little over done but good. Pull pork was good - not enough sauce with the sandwich. The Long Island ice tea was very good!!

As soon as you walk into this place, you smell that wonderful smell of a smoker. It made my mouth water, just walking in the door. We sat outside on the deck for our dinner. Although, we were under the canopy, it was still very hot. But the beautiful views of the water were worth it. We started with the... More

This was not our first visit here. The weather was decent, so we sat outside which is fun, as you can watch the boats and the people. Our waitress was friendly enough, although there were some issues with the food. I had the haddock sandwich, which appeared open-faced when it came. I asked the waitress, who said it was on... More
