We did make a reservation and there is valet on the right side of restaurant. Street parking can be tough. We ordered a drink and looked at the menu. Asked waiter who was helpful for suggestions. I ordered six oysters and wound up getting three more. Delicious and very fresh. We also had the crab and corn soup which was very good. Wife had crab au gratin and loved it. I opted for the cod special that was great and waiter suggested after discussing my likes. Dan was well versed on the menu. Service was excellent and food was great. We split the cheese pie for desert and it was really good. If unsure about the place try the happy hour for drinks and snacks. We will go back. A bit pricey but fish is excellent and fresh food well prepared. Recommend reservation. All around good experience.

Wife and I went for the first time. We've always heard great reviews.

I want first think our server whose name I can't recall, she was super! Very attentive to our needs.

My wife had scallop ceviche and I had a special salad for appetizer. Both items were incredible. For entrees she had the grilled snapper and I had the Dock's Seafood Fry.

She absolutely loved her meal. My meal first thought when I ordered a combo that included crab cake, flounder and shrimp was it would be smaller portions of all. This was not the case, everything was Large! And all taste great. The fries aren't traditional, but like slivers.

My wife ordered the chocolate cake which again was delicious.

This place gets a TEN!

Without appetizers or drinks, bill was over $100. The wait staff were attentive and meal was served promptly but for the price I would not have expected the salmon to be overlooked and dry. Nor should the lobster Thermidor be "soupy" with no real taste of sherry. The restaurant came highly recommended. Disappointed.
