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.

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.

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

I would actually give this restaurant a 3.5. The food was not fantastic but it was kind of what we expected, It's clear that this place is more about the fun atmosphere and the awesome view than the food. We had a good time while were there. That being said, I would pass on the spinach artichoke dip. Our rental... More

Stopped here for drinks and appetizers. Could not get near the place Saturday evening so we tried Sunday lunch. Huge deck overlooking the lake. We had the Driftwood Logs and they were soooo good. Just the right amount of heat. We will stop here on our next visits!

my husband & I recently visited Dock's for lunch while on in the area for a visit to put-in-bay OH. The staff was friendly, service & food was good. Excellent views of lake erie and marina's right on the beach. would recommend to friends and would return if in the area.

Excellent service, charming and clean, both inside out on the deck. Variety of food options and unique drinks. Beach parking for the boats and jet skis. This is a must see.

Our server was great. But it cost $70.00 for, what was essentially bar food. Great location and patio.
