I remember now why i stopped going to this restaurant. Dont waste your money. I got shrimp and white fish...it had no flavor and the baked potato wouldn't even melt the butter. Sweet tea had no sugar. Watress had a real attitude. NEVER AGAIN! Go...to Harbor House in johnson city they make the best seafood in the tri-cities.More

In the previous I could honestly say that the food at Fisherman’s Dock was good! However ,today it was just terrible! The slaw tasted very old and the chicken was dry and hard and didn’t even have a taste, the honey mustard was even awful....The tarter sauce was so runny ew,ew! Even the shrimp and hush puppies were hard and dry! They will not get our business ever again!More

I had the broiled Captain’s Special. This was during Covid-19 partial reopening. I ordered and had to carry-out. Excellent service. Quick. Delicious meal. Had broccoli and coleslaw as sides. Wonderful hush puppies. Looking forward to coming again next time business has me passing through town

We visited here today with my college class and the food was delicious. I had a lunch special of popcorn shrimp and fish and the portion size was way more than I could eat. Food is extremely good and it’s a big bang for the...buck for the portion. The staff were also very friendly.More

While I had the catfish (lunch portion), wife had the grilled chicken. Her chicken was better than my fish. Fish was warm - baked potato was cool - (wouldn't melt the butter). Her grilled chicken was hot and juicy. I'll probably go back and try...something else next time if she wants to. Still a $ 20.00 meal for lunch. Other places are better for a little less. Seems like you should received a hot meal for lunch.More

This was a great choice for lunch. Mostly fried food but has broiled seafood as well. We had a broiled platter and the shrimp and scallops were spot on!!! Miranda, our server, was sweet and quick. Totally recommend this place

This restaurant was very busy. We had a short wait for a table. Our waitress had several tables to wait, yet she was always checking on us. Our orders came out steaming hot. The plates were filled with food. Everything was good.

You do not have to worry about portions that are less than advertised. They brought out a plate of popcorn shrimp piled high light and fluffy. Even Fluffy would have all he could eat.
