I've known about Dock's for a long time, but we never quite made it there. We showed up on an impromptu dinner on My wife's birthday without a reservation (on a Saturday night). It's a tight place and busy as can be but somehow they got us a seat in pretty short order. We sat at the bar (clam/oyster bar) and had drinks and appetizers while we waited. They had the BEST oysters I've ever had (and about 10 different varieties to boot). The rack of lamb with fried beats was simply AMAZING! Everything from the service on was spectacular and is now certain to be a regular opportunity from now on (only we will definitely be making reservations from now on).

Seafood sampler for two is a perfect starter while sitting at the piano bar. Wonderful night. Highly recommend.

Had dinner last night. My wife said that this was probably the best seafood dinner she has had. I won't give her age but suffice to say she has had many. The oysters were outstanding. My pet peeve is places that don't clean the shell because I like to slurp the whole oyster from the shell. These oysters were magnificent. The main course specials were prepared perfectly. The Chief knows how to cool seafood. They were "goldilocks" ..cooked just right. Service was spot on. Will, our server, provided great recommendations and was impeccable in every aspect of service. Crowded? Yes and reservations are a must for weekend even in Feb. Get out of casino dinning and bask in the best seafood restaurant around.

The food was delicious. I had the beef and reef and it was more than I bargained for. The steak was good and the lobster was huge. Will definately dine there again.
