Parking is nearby. We found the menu to be the most varied of any of the restaurants on the island. There are... More

What a great find!! Decided to eat here because of the great reviews. And we were not disappointed. Lobster Bisque was fantastic and the portion was large. Crab cakes were equally good. Walleye was the catch of the day and that was not the best, lacking some in flavor, but everything else was so good. We will definitely come here... More

Stopped in with my son for lunch. My son is super picky yet absolutely loved his burger and chips; he doesn't normally like chips at all. My gyro was perfection! I would highly recommend patronizing this restaurant.

Saw all these rave reviews for their lobster bisque... realized people are idiots. Ordered it, not a single piece of lobster in it. ALL IMITATION CRAB MEAT in a $14 "lobster" bisque. Seriously was entirely imitation crab meat, even piled on top. I'd go back, but will stick to a simple beer and enjoy music.

We had lunch at Dockers, arriving about 11:45. The location on the water was appealing. Our server was courteous but had so many tables to serve that our order took 45 minutes to appear. The food was cold and unappealing. I sent mine back and it was reheated in a microwave making the dish soggy and unappetizing.

Thank hm s
