This is a large restaurant which can accommodate groups. In warm weather there is an outdoor deck overlooking the marina. The menu is large with something for everyone. Docks is one of the few restaurants in the area which serves good fresh cut fries.

Been there several times over the course of this season and the service is non existing to say the least. Very disappointing as the quality of food is not spectacular! Won't go there again and can't recommend it.More
