    Docks was the perfect place for lunch on a beautiful early spring day on the Baltimore waterfront. The food was great (Although we were surprised by how few regional items were on the menu - just local oysters and rockfish.); the service even better; and the Fried Oreo Sundae almost without compare. Looking forward to a return visit and will definitely be recommending to friends.

    went specifically for the Galentines deal of free champagne & strawberries, were told there was none left until we complained about a hair in my friend’s food then we got free champagne; also still waited 30 min with reservations really sad because the people are nice & it’s cute but they need to learn how manage better and prepare clean food for their prices, they were out of a lot!

    The sandwich was overly salty, yet the fries were devoid of seasonings. I guess all the seasonings went on the sandwich. Napkins and utensils had to be requested, as they weren't on the table or delivered with the meal. Tips are automatically included, regardless of service or food quality.

    Overall great experience. Bad part was the wait. Had a reservation for 2:30 but didn’t get seated until about 3. There were other people waiting for their reservation as well. But when we got in everything was great. Beautiful ambiance. Music not too loud. I could hear my friend. Tish was our server and was AMAZING! Loved her. Great attention to detail and for us right with our bottomless mimosas. Will definitely be back

    Service was great, drinks were great the food was a little pricey for what I had. I had the pineapple bowl which barely had any lobster or salmon and maybe 4 shrimp for $42 dollars. I had the white and red sangria, and they were both delicious. They gave my sister and I both complimentary roses and champagne for valentine's day which was very thoughtful. Overall, it was a great experience, our waiter was Justin, and he was very pleasant and helpful in helping us choose our meal. Awesome customer service!!!!

    The host at the front counter was very pleasant. I didn’t get his name but he greeted us as soon as we came and helped up take photos. Once we were seated it went down hill. The waitress had a very disgusting attitude as if she didn’t want to be there. We asked her questions about the different drinks and food items and she huffed and made a snippy sound everytime we asked. She rushed us with taking orders then once we got out food it wasn’t what either of us expected for the price. Over the place was beautiful but I wouldn’t return for a funeral let alone to dine.

    I wanted to get something else instead of what I ordered and I was told that I could not do so. Unless there was a problem with my food. The problem was I didn’t want the red snapper with a head on it. That was a problem for me! Secondly, it was my birthday and we ordered a dessert whelk which never was ordered. We were charged $5 for a sparkler and no dessert wheel. My friends and I were irritated! We will never dine with this establishment again!

    Went to Docks on the Harbor yesterday with my family. We were extremely disappointed with the quality of the food and drinks. We were a party of 9. We had reservations for 1145. The restaurant was pretty empty when we got there. We started off with the boozy brunch, 2 dozen oysters, lobster mac n' cheese, and the angry lobster sushi roll. We tried multiple different drinks that were included with the boozy brunch. The only ones we sort of liked was the frozen margarita, and straight prosecco. Our first issue was when the appetizers came out. None of them came with any serving utensils. The lobster mac n' cheese was bland, and the lobster was overcooked. The oysters came out still connected to the shell. Our main courses weren't much better. We had to send back several dishes, including an order of shrimp and grits because it was extremely bland. I ordered the chicken and waffles with lemon pepper wings and a red velvet waffle. The wings were cooked fine, but the flavor was lacking any seasoning. My waffle came out really hard and over cooked. I sent it back in hopes that the next one would be cooked perfectly, however, I never received a new waffle. After some time passed, I told our waiter that I didn't want the waffle anymore. Our server informed us that he was told that I had already received a new waffle. This was obviously not the case as I had no waffle. When the check came, I was surprised to see that my chicken and waffle was still on the check, even though I didn't have a waffle. On top of that, the establishment only discounted my meal as opposed to comping my whole meal, as I waited for my waffle and couldn't really enjoy my wings. Also, we notified the hostess of several birthdays we were celebrating. None of this came to fruition. Overall, this experience was not what we were expecting based on multiple reviews of the establishment.

    This was THE WORST dining experience I’ve ever had. From waiting over an hour for food and drinks to the management treating us terribly after our complaints about the wait. We wanted to send back an order of Wings that came out cold after an hour of waiting and the General Manager refused to take them back arguing that we only waited 11mins and that he can bring up camera footage. We proceeded to ask him can he please take the wings off and decided to call the police on us. When I asked what was the crime, he said we were trespassing. How? We were never told to leave. Not once was the management team considerate enough to accommodate us for our troubles. I will NEVER return to this establishment.

    Don’t waste your time. Waited over thirty minutes to be seated after making reservations and there were several empty tables. Ordered the lobster sushi roll. They don’t have wasabi nor soy sauce. The wings were so salty we had to send them back and reorder. When the other wings were bought out they lacked flavor no seasoning at all. Based on the appetizers we decided not to have dinner and went elsewhere.

    Let me say this place is okay for appetizers and drinks. We ordered appetizers they forgot the salad and Truffle fries . Then we ordered food it was like Bar food not like there pics. How about we had to wait 3min for Silverware Oh we had to go ask for them. Then they ask where we celebrating anything we said yes..after that they bought out the lil Sparklers and a shot for the birthday girl it was ok. Oh they Charged us $5 for the Sparklers Uh sorry we didn't order that SO BEWARE! Other than that if they get a better staff they'll be ok.

    I am writing to you because I was ver disappointed in the service we received yesterday. I don’t remember the young man name but he was a tall brow-skinned guy with a beard, his shirt was out his pant and his tie was not decent. He was dressed as if he just woke up and put clothes on. He did not know the menu at all. We asked questions about the menu and all he said was “This menu new, I haven’t seen this yet”. Than we order the Boozy Brunch. We noticed the waiter picked up the pitcher with his hands covering the top of pitcher. So to the food, my boss ordered the Cobb salad with blackened shrimp and I ordered the sushi roll. When our food came out, she had fish on top of her salad. The waiter did not inform me that the sushi was not fresh, so I sent it back. He was very upset because I didn’t want my food. The young man who brought us our food(he was wearing a headband) went to get the Head Chef because she informed him the salad was wrong. The Head Chef came out and apologize and corrected her salad. We did not stay for the whole 90 minutes because we had a very bad experience.

    i went here this past weekend for brunch which there weren’t a lot of tables booked. our server and food was good. the food was kind of cold more like room temp. the only problem i had was that, the website and the actual restaurant advertise multiple things that aren’t correct. also, you CAN’T split checks which is so weird to me because they have policies for parties over 2 so i didn’t like that. but overall, it was pretty good, the ambiance was nice, the music wasn’t loud, our server was nice but i wouldn’t go back again.

    The customer service in the beginning at checkout in wasn't pleasant. Arrived a bit earlier then our reservation. We had to constantly ask for updates because no one would speak to us. Our waitress didn't show up. Untill we requested a nearby waitress take us on. After she started, she was pleasant and the food came out pretty quickly. Outside of the timing of the food, I think it just wasn't the greatest experience I would have expected.
