Great food and atmosphere as well as superb service. Highly recommend to everyone. Food is very fresh, use local vendors from around Newfoundland. Conscientious of people's allergies, willing to answer our questions regarding our sons allergies.

We stopped for a quick lunch before touring Trinity. The Docker's salad was loaded with fresh shrimp and crab...delicious. My husband's club sandwich was just average. Friendly staff. Suitable for families.

Love the fish and chips, the desserts are awesome too. I meant to take a pic of both entree and dessert but was too busy devouring them to remember! Beautiful view, friendly staff.

This was a nice place to stop for lunch after touring the village. The food is good but nothing overly special and the staff were friendly. It comes with a great view!

We went to this restaurant based on a recommendation from a B&B which we thought would be good since they had recommended one in Bonavista which was delicious. We found it hard to believe that they had very disappointing seafood dishes considering there is fresh seafood available  right in their backyard. First off the blonde older lady who we thought...

Kind of crazy that with literally all the food being local and of great quality that it was a botch job on the cooking. Everything very deep fried and overcooked that we had... Cod tongues, scallops, fish n chips. One waiter very nice - one pretty rude. We waited half hour to get drinks and then only because we flagged... More

We ate a lot of fish on our recent trip to Newfoundland but this just might have been the best fish and chips we had. The cod was fresh and flaky and the batter was not overbearing in any way. My wife only ate one piece so we took the other one with us and it was good cold the... More

The food was HORRIBLE, do not go! The craft shop upstairs is nice and has very friendly staff but do not waste your time at the restaurant. The wine options were brutal and the staff don't have a clue of what they were serving. They were not able to make a simple gin & tonic and even botched lobster. It... More

We ate several meals at the Dock Marina Restaurant - a special favorite was the smoked salmon bruschetta. We also enjoyed pizza, good salads, and a turkey dinner, which apparently is a specialty. We found the seafood chowder to be OK, but not special. Upstairs there is a craft shop that features local artists and specialties. Service was good, and... More

The waitress told me the chicken fingers were good, then brought me animal shaped chicken nuggets that were terrible. It seemed that the ventilation was blowing right on us and it was very cold beside the window, even though it was not very cold outside. I will not go back to that restaurant. My daughter's bbq burger was good.
