“Will not go back”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

My boyfriend and I went and I have to say that the service was awful. I understand that it gets busy on a Friday night but I thought they had enough staff on duty to take care of everyone. One couple even walked out because no one came to help them. Another table did not get there food at the same time and had to wait. As for the food it wasn't even hot for as long as we waited. Major things need to be done for this place to stay in business.

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Very badly under staffed. Our drink orders were taken quickly but from there on we had to flag down somebody to help us. We finally gave up on ordering another drink or dinner witch is why we went there to began with. One bartender, one waitress could not take care of the customers. The mostly male table around the bar was talking loudly about it being cold and how it was affecting the ladies breast. Will not go back.

“Neighborhood bar”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Formerly The Docks Bar & Grill, which closed, and is now under new ownership. We went late Saturday afternoon on the weekend of the grand re-opening. The bar area was filled when we arrived and the table area gradually filled up as well. Perhaps still working out the kinks with the re-opening. Service at our table was spotty & other patrons made the same comment. Waited for refills & a long wait for typical bar food to be served. It appears to have a lot of the regulars from the past. Could get loud, but hey, it's a bar with football games on the TVs throughout the place. Some good drink specials.
