“A Sinking Ship”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Why is it sinking?
Maybe it's because the owner didn't realize that Granbury folks don't settle for unclean conditions and bad service and lame food such as their poorly seasoned boiled shrimp that a Cajun wouldn't dare serve to his guests.
Sure, it has a good location, except that the ramp from the parking lot is so steep because of the lake being so low. But folks at Granbury are used to good lake views. And we'd rather have great seafood and good service in clean surroundings.
We'll let the unknowing tourists fall for the good location and the happy hour specials.

“Cowboy/Lion games”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Calamari amazingly tender, coconut shrimp coating black("that's so they can get it done"?). Second try not black but overly greasy and still overdone. Chips burned also. Draft shiner out.

“Don't waste your time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Horrible service, excuse after excuse for the 1-1/2 hr wait to receive food from the so called manager. Food was ok, but nothing to brag about. Many better choices in Granbury. Bad waste of a good location.

“Pleasant early evening experience....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We enjoyed an early Sunday evening at The Dock - outside on the deck, watching the boaters coming in at the end of a long weekend and feeding the fish and ducks. Food was OK - more of a bar than a grill. The Margaritas were good.
