Dock's is a nice place to eat and enjoy the waterfront. The food is good and reasonably prices and the atmosphere is great. Love it when there is live music!

Have never eaten here. but I have heard the food is good. Love the beach, great place to have a beer or a cocktail and just sit on the beach and relax. Bonfires at night. Very busy during the summer. Bartenders are always friendly.

We had 7 in our party early on a Saturday evening and wanted to sit outside. There were 2 four top tables and they would not push them together for us or put on one bill. Unwilling to find a solution. Then my food came out after everyone else was already done eating. I guess they figure people will go... More

We live in Toledo and we make frequent trips during the summer to Dock's. The perch sandwich is amazing, and the patio has a beautiful view of the lake. We are motorcycle people, and it is a nice ride from Toledo.

Talk about a low stress place to enjoy a dinner while watching the sun go down over the lake. Service was excellent! Food, very good with locally caught fish options. Decent selection of local craft beers, they should add more

good eats, a little pricey. food is always good, decent selection of beers. wait staff is nice. the back porch and outside seating area is the best, especially if you can catch a sunset while you are there. make sure to stop by if you are in the area.

Great place to have a few cold beers and great food. The views are awesome, the service is great, and the appetizers are good. The prices are reasonable.

We were in Port Clinton for business and when finished wanted to eat on the water! It was a beautiful afternoon & we sat outside where we could see the water. Our waitress was quick to come, efficient and attentive. We asked her several questions and she was knowledgeable about the menu! We had Lake Erie Yellow Perch and it... More

After we checked into our hotel we headed out for lunch. The reviews were varied on Dock's, but it is on the lake. We sat outside under the roof which has doors roll up and completely open like garage doors. Great table. The seafood was pricey, but what seafood isn't? We ordered the broiled walleye with rice and fresh green... More
