My boyfriend and I went here a few nights ago, we're on vacation from Florida. We heard about this place from a local. They told us about how they put a light on the water and feed tarpon from the dock, so we went to check it out. We had a grouper with rice and beans. We weren't starving so the two of us shared the meal. It was delicious! I don't recall the price of the meal but the drinks were a little on the high side. That's my only complaint. The breeze that comes in off the water makes this place so comfortable. After we ate we sat at the bar and found they had the biggest selection of beer we've found on the island. The bartender, Steve was great. At the end of the night the server and cooks joined us at the bar and we chatted with them awhile until Steve said he was ready to close up. So we ended up going to the Happy Landing with the employees. This place and the people were great! Tonight is our last night here and I think we will be going back there.

My wife and I were at Dingly dock earlier this week with a couple visiting from the States. The atmosphere was great....right on the water, and open air, with a good bar. Once we ordered, we found that the salad bar was pretty much empty, and there were no dresssings, for which we had to wait about 20 minutes. Then, after about 40 minutes of waiting for our orders (shrimp scampi), the waiter came out and said they were out of shrimp! It took them 40 minutes to notice this???!!! He then said they would change our order to lobster for the same price as the scampi. OK...fine....just bring us our meal. Well, we waited ANOTHER 30 minutes, during which other people who arrive MUCH after we did were receiving their orders of....lobster!! We kept asking why our particular orders were taking so long...but the waiter just made more excuses. FINALLY our orders came (after over 1.5 hours of waiting!). Well...maybe we were just really hungry, but the food was really good! They also gave us a couple of free drinks to try to "make up" for the problem. Bottomline....if you don't mind waiting a REALLY long time to eat, the food is very good. They should just get better organized and pay more attention to inventory.

I go to Dinghy Dock often to enjoy the great view of the bay at night and to sip on a couple cocktail. The bar area is very breezy and the drinks are pretty cheap. The food at Dinghy is good and you can get anything from burgers to fresh fish and lobster at a reasonable price. The meals come with a salad bar, which is a pretty nice bonus when eating out. I go there often when friends come to visit in Culebra
