About
A NAPLES ORIGINAL WATERFRONT RESTAURANT The waterside ambiance of the Dock is as compelling as its food. The Dock is a little piece of Naples’ history – in fact, for lots of locals and visitors, we’re practically part of the family. And we think that’s because we give people what Naples is all about – Bay views, great food and a laid-back attitude. Seafood has been a decades-long love affair at the Dock, an open-air restaurant overlooking Naples Bay in historic Crayton Cove at the City Dock. Here, we prepare the freshest fish with Caribbean and Latin influences; our menu also offers tasty salads and sandwiches, and tempting beef, poultry and pasta dishes, as well as innovative daily specials

Had shrimp nachos to share to start with, followed by paella, see bass and grouper - all really good. The sea bass was the best piece of fish cooking I’ve had in a long wile, it was perfect. Ron Dec off with key lime pie....Our server was attentive and funny, and on point - would recommend a visit. They are working on a new tiki hut extension which will be ready in Sept 22 and will be a great addition.More

We dined here while staying at the Cove Inn since it is on the property, the weather was rainy and it was convenient to just walk there. Our server, Tyler was great and the rest of the staff were very friendly. I wasn't overly hungry...so I opted for the Oysters Rockefeller app. It was okay, I've had much better but it was edible though a bit too much cheese so it was rather salty. Hubs had fried shrimp, said they were okay, unremarkable. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. Not terrible food, just okay and a bit pricey for what you get and we are not opposed to paying well for great food.More

We had a great dinner. Sat in the outdoor seating with a great view of the boats and the water. Service was prompt and good. Raw Oysters were fantastic. We had the Sea bass and Clam Strips. Both were very good. While the cocktails were...good, they don't serve Coke products or Sweet Tea. A bit disappointing.More

We were seated on the extended patio and it was a busy day. We waited a bit for a server. Our food just wasn’t served hot this visit. We could have used both water refills along with another cocktail. After another extended wait we did...get service. I enjoy the salads here and the menus variety. The fish meals were lackluster this visit. Worse, served tepid. Prefer inside with the water view but since there are no reservations here, it’s hot or miss. It was a miss this visit.More
