By The Docks
For a birthday - I ordered my all the me favorite at this restaurant - stuffed shrimp!! It’s stuffed with crab cakes and are they delicious!! Outstanding as usual!
Food was good but take your patience with you. Not his fault, it was our server's 2nd day. 3 of our 5 dinners ordered were not correct when delivered, and after requesting the one dinner be corrected, it still was not right. They served us a diffent dinner on their menu. Our server even came back and verified when ordered, and the kitchen still got it wrong serving us the incorrect dinner. This wasn't an odd request, they just served the wrong meal. Sides were not brought with the meal, salad came with the hot food. They asked when the reservation made was this a celebration and I said yes, a birthday. When I asked if they could bring a piece of cake out after dinner I was asked if I had any candles because they didn't, so I don't know why they asked. It was just one thing after another which made for constant confusion while trying for everyone to enjoy their meal and eat at the same time. The food was good, but like I said, take your patience, and appreciate those that decide to work, but definitely a lot more hiccups than expected. And before anybody ask, yes we still tipped him well.
We had an overall good experience, but the crab cake and stuffed mushroom capa weren't that great. They were dry and lacked seasoning.
Was delicious 😋I loved it and would greatly recommend it
The host was fantastic food was great I really had a good time
Everything we had was great! We have been a few times and drive over an hour to go.
Our server was very good and provided a great experience. Food came quickly once we ordered as well as our drinks. For the most part the food we ordered was delicious. My fiance's lobster special was not great but steak and cake was good and fish as well.
The food was delicious as always. Large portions and terrific taste. Kudos to our server Caylin. Great job on a very busy day
We are always manage to get the same waitress she is such a excellent waiter she knows exactly how to make her customer feels like they’re the only one even though she has lots of tables.
My second time at By the Docks & it's becoming my favorite restaurant. The place has great service & it's always a great amount of people dinning out.
Always good food at By the Docks. Anytime we get a lobster tail, we always asked for it to be steamed, a marked improvement over broiling it. One of our favorite restaurants!
Very attentive server, Sarah. Thank you.
Food was delicious he
Oversized portions great service
Kimberly was a wonderful server and attended to our every need! Food was great and ambiance was cute.
Our server was fantastic our food delicious! Never disappointed
Great food and service. Crab soup was amazing. Highly recommend
The quality of the food has not changed; still very good! My family had stuffed shrimpt, I had salmon. So good! Service has always been outstanding every time I dine there. Prices have gone up a little (so has every restaurant due to COVID), but the portions make up it!
Everyone seemed very happy with their food choice. We had 2 slight problems (with drink & steak), but the server was great in taking care of this. Kim, our server, was better than outstanding. She was on top of everything and even though the restaurant was packed, she was pleasant and never kept us from wanting anything.
When we return, I hope Kim is working.
FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AS USUAL
ONLY PROBLEM WAS THE WAIT TIME , I HAD RESERVATION AT 7 AND WAS SEATED AT 8 PM DUE TO STAFF ISSUES
Great crab cake Tuesday special included dessert. Tasty and nice price!
The food was delicious and portion sizes were great as usual, however the service was slow but forgiving because it was Father’s Day and the restaurant was very busy.
Father’s Day was crowded- food & value was good- our server was very busy and did a great job- one of our favorite places
Several different entrees were ordered, the protein ( steak, fish shrimp and crab cakes were well prepared and had an appetizing flavor. Cream of crab was to think and didn’t have an adequate amount of crab meet compared to other restaurants in the area.
The mussels were over cooked.
All vegetable sides were either under cooked or over cooked. The loaded bake potato was horrible, cheese sauce with some bacon bits and it tasted burnt. Un-edible.
The French fries were also over cooked and tasted like the old oil.
We have been coming here for years was a family favorite.
This is our second attempt over the last 2 yrs and disappointed both times.
Great food great service thank you thank you thank you
Service was great!! Atmosphere was good. Bar tender was great. Food was great, I would definitely go back again.
Food was very good and our server Brandon was excellent. He was very attentive in an extremely busy restaurant.
Food was good but we both ordered too much. Our waiter was excellent and staff welcomed us and seated us immediately. Will definitely return.
Went for first time Saturday afternoon for late lunch. Food was delicious and large portions. Service was very good. The restaurant was clean but I was surprised that the women’s bathroom was dirty. We will definitely go back again
First time there, but not the last. Fantastic food and great service. Very "dock like" atmosphere also.
We went at lunchtime. The restaurant wasn't crowded. Our waiter (Abner) was very attentive and helped us make our selections. The food was delicious and plentiful. We'll be back!!
I dined alone on steak special night. My server suggested a steak from the menu which was perfectly prepared and just as delicious.
The service was wonderful. My meal and the entire time spent there was an outstanding experience.
Greta food. Good service. Our waitress was new and had a big section this time. BUT overall the service has been excellent over the times that I have been here. A large menu with options for everyone. Seafood of course with plenty or pasta and meat choices as well.
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.
