Description: Take in a spectacular view of Lake Wallenpaupack while you enjoy vintage classics, new favorites and something for everyone on our menu! The Dock at Lake Wallenpaupack was once the Marine Terrace, a popular 1940s roadhouse in the Wallenpaupack cottage community. Three generations later, it is now The Dock on Wallenpaupack, a full service Hawley, PA restaurant with a Waterfront addition on the Silver Birches property. The Dock on Wallenpaupack features a combination of water-inspired foods and culinary twists on vintage classic dishes that would have been prominent when Baby Boomers were kids - comfort foods such as soups, snacks, salads, sandwiches, and light entrees. Many of our menu items include seafood dishes like fried calamari and freshwater perch chowder as well as grilled steaks and chicken parmesan. There's something for everyone at the Dock on Wallenpaupack, and unlike other Hawley, PA restaurants, we have an extensive list of signature cocktails and a wine list for guests to choose from. During the spring and summer months, enjoy a fresh-cooked meal on our Deck while enjoying the expansive scenic view of the lake or while listening to some live entertainment. Unlike many other restaurants in Hawley, PA, we also have an additional pub, a coffee house, and the Starboard Room, a banquet room for those hosting events or weddings at Silver Birches.

“Good Not Great”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Since it was a beautiful evening in Fall my husband and I and another couple decided to dine At Ehrhardt's at the Waterfront on Lake Wallenpaupack. Being a week night we had no trouble being seated by the window to take advantage of the beautiful sunset.

I ordered broiled flounder with roasted potatoes and mixed vegetables. Although the flounder was fresh it did not have much taste as did the vegetables. It was accompanied by a fresh salad with a delicious creamy Italian house dressing and rolls and butter.

My husband ordered chicken breasts and shrimp with a Jack Daniels BBQ sauce which he said was tasty.

I tried the "make your own" sundae for dessert. Many of the toppings were low and should have been filled and I feel they could do a better job of keeping the ice cream scoop clean as the water it was in was not very appetizing.

Our waiter was very friendly and attentive.

It is also a B and B which has been run by the same family for 70 years.

I will revisit but for lunch next time which might be a better choice.

“Beautiful sunset over the lake”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

We purposely arrived for dinner at sunset and we were not disappointed. It was lovely watching the sun set over the lake. Our waitstaff was very good and friendly. The food was well prepared. I had the crab cakes and was happy to see lots of crab and not too much filler. Overall a very nice dinner.

“Loved this place”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We were not sure where to eat when we stayed in Hawley. We asked some of the local folks and they all suggested Ehrhardts. Let me tell you, they were right! From the food to the service we were so pleased and made to feel like a king and queen. Our food tasted fresh and delicious. There was a wait to be seated but we sat at the bar and the greeting from the bar staff was warm and inviting. You will not be disappointed!

“Geat service, beautiful views, great memories”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

My girlfriends and I stayed at Ehrhardt's for a long girls' weekend and I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had.


The accomodations are beautiful, clean, and comfortable, complete with breath-taking views of beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack. The staff was more than helpful, assisting us with suggestions for activities, and even providing glasses and dishes for an impromptu picnic by the fire pit.

We had 2 amazing dinners at the restaurant - the menu has lots of options for gluten-free or vegetarian diners, and everything we tried was delicious. The service was friendly and fast - we were very happy with all aspects of our stay and will be making this an annual excursion. A must-see!!!
