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.

“A favorite place to eat in the Poconos”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

If you need a solid, go-to dining experience you cant miss with Ehrhardt's. The homestyle food, neighborhood feel and extremely attentive staff is hard to beat in the local area, especially if you are fortunate enough to have Cindy as your waitress, or Mike greet you at the door. We are recent transplants from NYC and have been coming here for about nine months. It is a weekly visit for us, as well as for any of our guests who come to visit. No one is ever disappointed, so give it a try and you wont be either.

“Wonderful view, great food.”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We sat out on the deck and looked at Lake Wallenpaupak. Great weather made this a wonderful day to do this. Many choices of food. The food was delicious; the service was quick. Would definitely return.

“Poor food, loud music”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We got seated next to the windows on a Sunday night. What luck - we thought. Turns out these seats were above a wedding reception where the DJ pumped up the bass so much we could feel it in our feet, our chests, and mostly in our ears.

Drinks were OK. Food arrived only a few minutes after we ordered. How did they cook it so fast? Don't know, but my fish and chips were the worst I've ever had. Fish was mostly breading with thin layer of dry fish. French fries were not fresh. Wife's sirloin steak salad had tough meat. Friends salmon was only so-so.

Layout of restaurant is good, but view looks onto the long flat roof of the reception room below, with the lake beyond that. (Hint - pit some decoration or plants on the roof, it looks like a parking lot).

Prices are reasonable. Service was good.

Dear N0sDa,
We are sorry to hear the wedding reception in the banquet center disturbed your meal. We try to work with the DJ’s to find a balance in the noise level and apologize that it was too loud. We are glad you enjoyed the layout of the restaurant and the lake view.

“Very good crab cake sandwich”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We had lunch there on the deck and the crab sandwich was very good. It is a upscale restaurant and the prices reflect that.I thought $8 for a domestic draft beer is a little high. But that said the food and and atmosphere is very good.

Dear Harry S,
We are happy to hear you enjoyed our signature crab cakes. We are sorry for any confusion regarding our domestic draft beers, our draft beers average from $2.75-$5.00. It’s possible your bill listed multiple drinks on the same check line, but in any case we are sorry for the confusion. We are glad you enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We hope you will stop in again soon and thank you for reviewing us.

“Good menu changes!!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Been coming here for years, stopped in recently while passing through town. Good to see that such an established restaurant keeps updating its menu and adding new additions. Our waiter (named Brad, young kid, glasses) did a great job of describing new menu options we weren't familiar with, answering a bunch of our questions, etc. Really knew his stuff! We were very happy to see this old place still keeping things fresh.
