We love going to the Old Dock House in Essex NY it is a prefect afternoon boating destination on a nice hot summer day. We absolutely love the view and location. The last time we had an amazing dining experience. In previous years it has been hit or miss with the service all depending on how busy it is. The food is a bit over priced but well worth it, my favorite is the fish and chips. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody looking for a fun day trip or just a nice quit romantic dinner.

When I think of favorite places to eat, the Old Dock House comes to mind. Not because of the food which is your average bar food (hence 4 stars) but because of the view and relaxing atmosphere. We drive out of our way to have lunch here when going to Vermont.

Great lakeside views on an outdoor patio surrounded by water on three sides. Next door to the ferry so it's usually crowded during peak times. Food is average and a little pricey, but it's the view and atmosphere you pay for.

Right on the water with plenty of outdoor seating. Watch the ferry to Vermont come and go. A classic summer venue on Lake Champlain not to be missed.

A really fun place for lunch, with a wonderful view of Lake Champlain and the coming and goings of the Essex-Charlotte ferry.
Lots of good fried food, especially the fish and chips.
Not fancy but good, fun food and a terrific atmosphere.
