This is one of the few restaurants right on the water at Kelleys Island, and I think they can do better. The location is great. The food was fine, but it comes with a "bag" of chips and a "can" of beer. The waiter didn't even bring a cup or glass with it. I went and just picked one up from the bar. A little more attention to the customer experience goes a long way.

Stopped here for beers on a Saturday evening. This outdoors restaurant/bar overlooks a marina and Lake Erie. The view was nice and the service was fast.

Lovely lakeside restaurant. Super clean and very nice staff. Every year we order their rum runners for drinks, which are served in plastic cups. High top tables for 4 can be pushed together for bigger groups. All seating is outside - no indoor tables. This is the most upscale bar type place on Kelley's. If you can't walk down stairs park at the lot between Dockers and The Casino. Can also park a boat in the spaces there for $5 a day.

Hubby had a broiled fish with broccoli and roasted potatoes. Fish was well prepared. Broccoli was perfectly done - not too mushy. He loved the potatoes. I had the ribeye sandwich....mmmmmmm.....very lean. Kids had mussels and crab cakes. They loved them both. I do not care for the crab cakes - some spice in there I do not like. Each meal was between $9 and $16. Bill for 6 of us was about $100 with a drink. Staff is patient and never seems in a rush if you want to hang out for a drink. We go here each year. Love it. I wouldn't say it's gourmet, but it's not bar food either.

The Bruschetta Chicken was simply amazing. The meal started with a garden salad that had many different types of lettuce. Typically, the island locations serve a "bag" of salad. That wasn't the case at Dockers. Fresh ingredients filled the bowl.

While the two chicken breasts could have been larger portions, the juicy tenderness made up for the size. We chose the mashed potatoes with gravy for our second side and were not disappointed.

The restaurant is located dockside, so you need to keep an eye out for the sign.

Great place for drinks although the beer is not draught.
The food is very good! Love the blue cheese cole slaw!!!
Beautiful view of the lake, right on the marina.
Hope to come try the breakfast buffet this summer before I leave.
