When a restaurant has been in business for more than 100 years, you know they are doing something right! Docks opened in 1897 and continues today with the traditions it was founded on – the freshest seafood and excellent service.
One look at their menu attests to the freshness of the ingredients: a raw bar with 10 different types of oysters (in season), shrimp ceviche, tuna tartar and clams on the half shell. Entrees are focused on fish and seafood, including scallops, lobster, crab and fresh fish.
