On the last day of forecasted summer-like weather in October, we visited St. Michaels and stopped for lunch at the Town Dock. We were guided there by Trip Advisor and their reviews. It was a quiet mid-week day with only a few diners at the place. The hostess seated us immediately and the waitress visited our table within a minute... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. You should have been offered a choice of our house made dressings so I am not sure why that didn't happen. Don't forget that even though we are well into the Fall season we are here year round and the only waterfront restaurant open in St. Michaels Dec-Mar. More

Stopped here for dinner with friends while in town for a long weekend. Delicious seafood at a reasonable price. Appetizers and entrees were very good, especially the oysters. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, although a little pushy regarding alcohol orders. Overall, a very good experience.

I am not sure who the "pushy" server is, but I'll remind everyone we are just here to make suggestions that might enhance your dining experience with us. It's oyster season so we offer three different selections of local and East Coast oysters. And thank you for recognizing our reasonable prices because, they are! More

One of the nicest places to eat in St. Michaels. Enjoy sitting on deck eating scrumptious, fresh seafood while sipping a cool drink. The view is spectacular from this vantage. Excellent place to sit and relax while and relax after a lovely stroll though Mt. Michaels.

Thanks for telling everyone what a great view we have and also about the great food. Now that most of the beautiful boats and yachts have left the harbor the views are even more spectacular. The harbor is wonderful to see during the winter months and we'll turn on the fireplace for you! More

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending dinner time at the Town Dock Restaurant during a recent 3 day mini-vacation to St. Michael's. Each of the appetizers, dinner selections, and deserts were very good. They also were reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will certainly return to this establishment during future visits to St.... More

We are not trying to be gourmet we have other good restaurants in town which fill that niche. We strive to offer great food, reasonable prices, friendly service, the best view of the harbor and if you sit at the bar you're more than likely to meet some locals. Thank you for taking time to review Town Dock. More

I've been there twice now. It has a nice view, overall tasty food. Their crab soup and crab cake sandwich are very good. But the one thing that really stands out are the sweet potato french fries. Sweet potato fries are not easy to get right. Often they are too wet or burnt. But Town Dock Restaurant knows how to... More

I picked this restaurant because of the ratings, but it was a disappointment. Service was terrible. We waited 20 minutes for our oyster appetizers 40 more minutes for our lunch to be served. There were hardly any other diners so that could not have been the problem. They were out of flounder at noon and had no other local fish.... More

I am sorry that we dropped the ball so badly. As you pointed out we have tons of great reviews (your reason for choosing us), but we let you down on this visit. I am not sure why there was such a problem in getting your order to you, but I have tried to train our staff to be aware... More

Great views, great drinks, and friendly service. The Crab pretzel was the best I've had in a while. It was raining all day but even inside there were great views.

Town dock is good seafood that will not disappoint but to me was not the best seafood meal. View of the bay is beautiful and makes for great ambiance, price is reasonable for seafood.

Went for a late lunch on a weekday. The restaurant wasn't crowded, so we were able to get a table by the window to enjoy the water view. We would have eaten outside, but it was way too hot that day. Three of us had the soft-shell crabs, and one had crab cakes. The soft-shelled crabs were some of the... More
