For West Central Ohio, where there are not alot of non chain seafood choices, this is a welcome option
Accidentally discovered this place while driving through Enon, as it is very much off the beaten path. I returned for dinner with a large group of friends. Considering how busy they were on a Saturday night, apparently many others have discovered it as well.
The decor has a fun Margeritaville vibe.
Our waiter, Zach, was very attentive and very patient with the more ornery members of our group. Everyone was very pleased with their food, with the Stuffed Salmon being an especially big hit. Many of us also had the special salad of day which was accompanied by a light and tasty mango vinaigrette. The dessert options were also yummy.
The prices were higher than I normally spend but it was a worthwhile splurge.

The taste of the dishes we have tried is okay, but at the price point should be much better. This was our second visit here. Our server, who told us she'd been there for several years, could not answer most of our questions about specials or menu items, and had to ask some one else for us. The promoted drink special was not valid at all, what we were told and what we paid were completely different (about double). When we got the check and questioned the charge, we were told the way it rang up was the special because of tax, well, not unless Ohio has changed to a 90% tax rate on drinks could it have been due to taxes. Service was ridiculously slow. We ordered the lobster bisque as a starter. Portion was good and the flavor was good, but the temperature was barely warm, almost room temp. We should have sent it back but we were so hungry at that point we would probably have slurped it up had it been served over ice. Entrée portions were decent, but don't expect anything like you get at a popular seafood chain. Also, the majority of main course selections are al a carte so the price of your meal escalates quickly. Although it is close to our house, I doubt we will go here again, two tries seems enough.

Pros:
The filet mignon was excellent. Highly recommended.

Cons:
The sea scallops were spoiled, had an ammonia odor. Double whammy, as it was a takeout order. Manager offered to replace it with a "fresh" order. Sorry...the last thing I want to do is get back in the car and drive back out there, taking it on faith that the next batch will be any fresher than the last.

Allowing spoiled food to be 1) kept in stock, 2) cooked, and 3) served to customers reflects poor quality management and poor judgment. 0 for 3. They need to get their act together on this or remove it from the menu. It's the second time we've had issues with the scallops. The last experience was about one year ago. No more.

We frequent the dock and always have a good meal. I love their lobster bisque and crab cakes. The dock salad with peppercorn ranch is a must! The bread is free and awesome! Service staff is always friendly and accommodating. The owner is often there making sure everyone is enjoying their evening.

Wonderful little hidden gem in Enon. A great patio and atmosphere coupled with good food makes a winning combination.
