I've had both the lobster roll w/fries,14.99, and the lunch special clam strips w/fries, good deal for 6.99. The roll was piled high with tasty lobster and the clams were cooked just right. The fries were hand cut and hot. No alcoholic beverages served. Take out or eat in.

Value for money was impressive, especially for touristy area of Maine. Very basic, a fish market with some tables. Service is friendly but harried. These folks are busy!! To-go orders were flying out the door during the long wait for my food. Not fine dining, for sure, but it doesn't claim to be. A good place to satisfy a seafood... More

This is one of the best seafood restaurants that I know of. It's not on the water but the prices aren't in the stratosphere either. Not just a fry shack either they'll sell it to your fresh or broil's or anywhere you want it. The owner ,Bob, is one of if not the most accommodating people I know, it seems... More

You can basically get almost anything here. I had a lunch of a half lobster roll, clam chowder (excellent!), two oysters, and a slice of blueberry pie. The Chowder was delicious, as was the lobster meat. But the bun the lobster roll was served on was stale, and the blueberry pie tasted "off" (like it was also stale). Unfortunately, the... More

This is a casual, family-owned fish market and restaurant located just over the Casco Bay Bridge. Food was cooked to order and incredibly fresh and delicious. All of their fish dinners were terrific. Highly recommended: the haddock specials, shrimp and of course, lobster. Portions were huge and came with choice of salad or slaw, baked potatoes, or french fries, and... More

Nice menu selection with reasonably prices. Good selection of daily specials. Moderate quantity of food per dish. If you ever find something "off" or not to your liking, let them know and they WILL make it right! My wife had gotten scallops that were over cooked for her. I let them know and a replacement order was immediately place and... More

My sisters and I had lunch Saturday, February 18m, at dock's, in South Portland. I was visiting from out of town and they knew I missed really good seafood. I had clam cakes, which were full of clams. One of my sisters had some Shrimp Cocktail, which she shared with me, and they were so large and so fresh, you'd... More

There's a reason locals love this place. Good fresh fish at a really good price. Try the fish and chips. It's enough for two and super yummy!

Dock's is a very good local seafood "shack" that has made a name for itself in a community filled with options. They hit the price-mark by keeping it affordable - basic menu, pretty basic space, but well prepared and just plain fun.
