We go almost everyday of our week's stay! We call in the order and try to speak to Katelyn because she is great at taking a large to go order, when I went to pick up the order she made sure it was all there and right. Great job Bagel Dock you don't disappoint!

Our go to place for Bagels. Cream cheese combos very tasty and Shrimp salad delicious. Check out register program is too complex; competent if a simple order. Any change to the norm results in additional wait and back up.

We love this place. Since they have expanded into new building so much better... Food is really good. I don't like however having to get a can drink. Overprised. Wish had fountain beverages. Wish had more coffee flavors since station is in middle before counter. Overall good place.

Always a professional wait staff - the bagels are the best quality you can possibly get in the area. Good variety, value and quality.

Bagels are great, sandwiches and tuna salad very good. Great bakery items. Always clean and friendly staff. I would recommend egg, chicken, and tuna salads. Great for breakfast and a quick lunch.

The food here is good but they are very unorganized with the way they handle the orders. They need to get a better system for taking and making orders. Other than that food is good

Just visited Bagel Dock's Express location in Shallotte. Smaller version of the Calabash Store. Has inside table seatings for about 20, plus outside tables and take out. Same great bagels, and sandwiches as Bagel Dock. They make them fresh at the Calabash location and bring them up daily to the Shallotte location. Service was great. We ate in and it... More

Bagels are great!! To much employee horse play going on. The whole place needed them cleaning instead of playing... Bagels were great!

We stopped here several times and the bagels with the assortment of different cream cheese flavors is amazing. Their bagel sandwiches were delicious too. We will definitely stop in here again. We enjoyed it very much and would recommend it anyone who likes bagels and experimenting with cream cheese!

Not bad, but for a bagel affectionato they were just ok. The owner is a little uppity. likes to park were the handicapped should be parking. I have no intentions of going back, not my kind of place.
