“Beautiful lake view, great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

This was our first trip to Dock's and we loved the perfect lakeshore atmosphere and view. It was family-friendly and the food and service were excellent. We stopped back a second night on our trip also and were equally as pleased with our meals and our experience. Beef Vegetable and French Onion soups were superb, hamburger was pronounced best ever from a burger enthusiast, and chicken strips were among our favorites of the reasonably priced selections, but the menu was so varied and offered many other fine dining options. Cocktails and desserts looked amazing, but we didn't partake on this trip. Will definitely come back and recommend to others.

“Right on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Right on the beach and water, I mean within a few feet! Beautiful view of Lake Erie. Remodeled last year. Great indoor/outdoor bar and food. Music 3-4 times per week. Food is a little expensive and good. One on my fav places at Lake Erie. Where else can you watch the sunset, water view, eat, sit in beach chairs and stare up at the stars...In OHIO!

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

A hotel recommendation led us to this place where a lot of the locals go and seems like several of us tourists. We both ordered the crab legs ($18-20) which was plenty and tasty but neither of us ate much of the potato and vegetable side dishes that were soaked and tasted of seafood from laying under the entree. I had to ask for wet towel and extra plate to place our shells. We were there late enough to enjoy the entertainment which consisted of a young gentleman and his guitar who had a good repertoire. If I were to return again I would go for the sandwich fare.

“Unique little place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stopped there for lunch as we were leaving Port Clinton. Prices were good for food value and quantity. Good service too. We sat outside on the patio by the water. Would definitely recommend checking this place out.

“Average service and food, great people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Relatively overpriced for kids mac and cheese, chicken wrap and cocktails. Service was slow and pretty grumpy. Best part about Dock's is the atmosphere. Can't beat a waterfront happy hour.
