Food was good, but very pricey! They have a nice outdoor patio, and offer beachfront access, with sun chairs, as long as your ordering. Kids can play in the sand, and swim...not sure that's a great combo for drinking, but if your ordering lunch....I believe you can hang out most of the day. We had dinner, but it seemed like... More

Had birthday dinner with hubby, I ordered the 1 lb crab leg special $22 . Fresh, delicious crablegs, and delicious potatos, veggies . My husband ordered the seafood pasta in a cream reduction sauce, which is always excellent ! I would rate 5 stars, but the prices are a bit high, however I feel you are paying for the view,... More

Dock's Beach House has delicious food and and yummy Piña Coladas. We had the fish tacos and the perch sandwich. The tacos were seasoned well and the dressing was tasty. There was live music and seating out on the private beach. You can take drinks down to beach and put your toes in the sand. It was a great find... More

We were excited to go to Docks and walk along the beach. We enjoy seafood very much and wanted to try their options. The food was pretty expensive in comparison of food you received and was not overly delicious. We have had better for sure. Pros were cute atmosphere, live entertainment, and access to walk on the beach. However not... More

A group of friends decided to meet at Dock's. We waited for a table outside and when we were set our table was placed next to the new deck and one side had a very hard time getting up from the table due to the raised floor behind our seats. The other half of our party had their backs to... More

Great food, great music, great service...we come here every time we visit Port Clinton. We love the casual beachy feel. It's great for families with kids too.

The place to eat, drink and sun in Port Clinton on Lake Erie. On a nice day the crowd spills out onto the beach. The food is fast and limited. This is a restaurant not to seek for its gourmet food, but rather for its casual beach scene. Tip - If seeking sun & sand & food, find a well... More

Dock's has a great view... However you do pay a little for it. The food isn't terribly proved, just a little above average for the area. I do feel it's fair, due to the view. It also keeps away so riff raff, which is nice.

We like going here a few times a year; seems like a little vacation for a few hours and only an hour from home. Great views of the lake. Nice deck. Sunday afternoon live music. Service was fine. It was a cooler day and we watched table after table get seated but leave to get something warmer. This time had... More

So we stayed at the next door hotel recently and this restaurant looked perfect for a romantic lakefront sunset dinner. We arrived about 8:15 or so and were seated quickly, the staff was friendly and courteous, we saw a special on the board as we waited to be seated (sunset power hour) which our server was unaware of and had...
