We did make a reservation and there is valet on the right side of restaurant. Street parking can be tough. We ordered a drink and looked at the menu. Asked waiter who was helpful for suggestions. I ordered six oysters and wound up getting three more. Delicious and very fresh. We also had the crab and corn soup which was... More

Wife and I went for the first time. We've always heard great reviews. I want first think our server whose name I can't recall, she was super! Very attentive to our needs. My wife had scallop ceviche and I had a special salad for appetizer. Both items were incredible. For entrees she had the grilled snapper and I had the... More

Without appetizers or drinks, bill was over $100. The wait staff were attentive and meal was served promptly but for the price I would not have expected the salmon to be overlooked and dry. Nor should the lobster Thermidor be "soupy" with no real taste of sherry. The restaurant came highly recommended. Disappointed.

We came here for our wedding anniversary. We were floored by the amazing service from our server Doug, as well as the other servers and bussers. The raw oysters are some of the best we've ever had, as were our entrees. If we are ever back in AC we will definitely come again. Not to mention the amazing piano man... More

We visited Dock's before the renovation and fell in love with the food, service, and atmosphere. The food and service remained the same but the historical atmosphere is gone. We started with drinks at the bar (Old Fashion & Bloody Mary) which were watered down and tasteless. Very disappointed since it was a waste of $20 plus tip. We appreciated... More

In an extremely wonderful way! The food was stunning..oysters, scallops, shrimp,fish, pastas of all kinds..filets and different steaks..beautifully plated and served. This place has been here forever..there's a reason for that..they do what they do very well indeed! It's warm and comfortable, yet has a sense of formality..if you're looking to feel pampered and attended to, go no further! Forget... More
