By The Docks
Hubby and I celebrated our anniversary here last night. Everything was wonderful!
Seafood was outstanding with an exceptional value considering the prices. Large crab cake dinner - which included 2 sides and desert for only $20.99.
We sat upstairs but the noise from the kitchen carried and was amplified.
Great lobster dinner - good price on a Monday-wait staff very good-
Musty smell upon entering should have warned us. Service was okay considering how under staffed they were. Food did not taste very good. Everyone ate less than half their meal and did not want any to go boxes. We ate here about three years ago and it was great. Not really the case anymore. I don't think we will go back.
By The Docks is a really nice restaurant. The food was delicious. Everything that I ordered taste great. Awesome Lamb chops, crab cakes and stuffed shrimp. I will be back soon. Had a wonderful dinner.
First time and last time experience. We were not impressed. Was actually surprised that a restaurant at this caliber is a member of OpenTable. Makes me question that OpenTable lowered its standard. Very disappointed with food and ambiance. What's advertised is not what's in reality. It was good to try.
Greeted well, seated very quickly. Service started well but as time went on server became more and more confused on which table ordered what meal. Two different times game to the table with food that was meant for someone else. With that being said our meals were outstanding, and would still recommend the restaurant.
The food was amazing..Brandon was our server and I gotta say hand down his service was excellent 👌..food was great 👍 had crabcake and oysters 😋 and a glass of wine. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing.. wasn't over crowded and you could have a conversation with out yelling..will definitely re visit your restaurant 😊 again.. great place for a good dinner and chillin 😎 👌 😌 😊
Absolutely delicious Oysters Rockefeller! We also got the stuffed lobster tail which melted in your mouth and was probably one of the best crab stuffings that we ever had! Our waiter, Abner was extremely attentive and friendly. He gave us excellent food selection options explaining each one. Overall, we are so happy we tried here and definitely plan on visiting again next time we are down from Philly. It seems like a very popular place so I would recommend making a reservation or going at an early time frame for dinner. You won't be disappointed if you GO! YUMMY!
Crab cake was very disappointing, more filler then crab meat. Service was great. I won't be going back anytime soon because of the food.
It was a family te union and we had Linda as our server. She was fantastic!!!! The food was very good. Everyone got what they liked and enjoyed their food.
Coming from Memphis, I wanted to try some Maryland crab cakes. They were amazing. By the Docs food was amazing as was the wine and atmosphere. Bathrooms were clean and the wait staff very helpful. We will be back!!
By the Docks never lets me down...Best place to eat I have ever been too ..Just Awesome..!
Always a great experience at By the Docks. The crabcake special on Tuesday is a great value. 3 courses for 20.99. I was so full by the time we left. Highly recommend.
We were seated soon after we got there, and had good service. The good was very good.
I would normally get the crab cake but decided to try something else, my mistake! the special was fish, stuffed mushroom, shrimp, asparagus, salad.......the shrimp was over broiled, the asparagus was tough, the fish was good and the crab stuffed mushroom wasn't worth putting on the plate and for the price of 29.99, I would not have paid anymore than 12.99.
First time here. Got the crab cake as recommended. Very pleased.
Best Crab cakes in town - go hungry as there is plenty to eat.
Normally great. Chef specials were not up to par. Crab cake was good.
Great Food! Crab Cakes to Pasta ! Wished they had Draft beer!
Crab cakes were Hugh and wonderful! Grape leaves yummmmm and you must get the baklava cheesecake!
Will be going back!
Food was excellent, though not very hot. Very noisy.
Crab cakes were delicious just didn’t like my potato salad and asparagus I feel it could have tasted a lot more tastier. Drinks were good and atmosphere was awesome. I would recommend this place.
First time dining here with my husband and we were blown away with the drinks, food, and service... We will definitely be back...
Food was great!! Our server (Ava) was pleasant and efficient. Nice evening.
Everything was super, with one exception. The oyster stew was light on oysters.
We went for breakfast under the impression that there would be a buffet, it was regular service ( our server was great). Food was good and drinks were okay.
Great specials for prime rib and pork chops! Chicken chesapeake as good as always!
At first we went in a little frustrated because we made reservations then we still had to wait 45 mins so why was the point so we were kind of annoyed by the time we sat down. Well our server Brandon was wonderful and def helped us loosen up. The food was GREAT! Despite everything we will be back!
Everything and everyone were great. Haven’t been here for awhile but will be returning soon.
It's the ONLY place to go for crab cakes! Oh, and the calamari appetizer is pretty great too.
As usual, lunch was AMAZING. Delicious food and and terrific service. The perfect Mother's Day.
Nice venue. Solid Crab cake.
Wife for Mother's Day got the surf and turf which she really liked. Others at the table got seafood pasta dishes which were decent. Service was good despite the amount of people frequenting with their mothers.
Food and service was great.
We arrived early for our reservation the host offer to seat us but we wanted a cocktail first, so went to the bar and the bartender if I remember correctly her name was Theresa she was so pleasant and attentive to us. The drinks and service was excellent, This was our first time at this location and I am sure we will be back.
Lobster Night is always a hit and a bargain for your buck!!
The servings are big and not expensive. They do have a military discount.
Value for your money was excellent, all was delicious, calamari slightly over battered.
First time dining here. Everything was exceptional. Will definitely dine here again and bring our friends!
