“AVERAGE MEAL AVERAGE PLACE”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Gave it a try and whiles the outlook and view is lovely and I must say our waitress Malsima? gave us excellent service where she could it turned into an average evening. We had a starter salad which came timeously and then we waited and waited and even Malsima said, "maybe they have forgotten your main course". Let me tell you they were not busy so maybe we were forgotten. I had the seafood platter and my wife had a prawn and calamari combo. It was okay. In summing it has the feel of a franchised operation about it and no Management was seen. Guess it will be a long time before coming here again.
One tip, maybe better to sit upstairs because found downstairs vey noisy with the sound of chairs moving above.

“Great Comfort Food”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Situated at the Knysna Waterfront, this restaurant is well frequented by the locals and tourists alike. Food and service is always good. One downside is that the indoor chairs are very uncomfortable and need to be replaced.

“Most Enjoyable”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My wife and I spent two nights in Knysna whilst travelling the Garden Route. We visited the waterfront during the first afternoon to check out the shops and restaurants and plummed for The Drydock to eat in that evening. It was very busy but we were able to get a table upstairs straight away. The service was prompt. The menu was extensive and we eventually chose steak and seafood combos. We weren`t disappointed, the meals were hot ,tasty and cooked as ordered. Washed down with the local beer and followed by Malva pudding, we left full and content. We were impressed so we eat here the following night also.
