  • We went there and I saw the owner Paul's wife yelling and pointing at one of his employees! This poor girl started to cry after Renee left. I will NEVER go back there EVER again so long as I live. I told my family and they told others. I have never seen someone so hurtful to an employee in my 55 years I've lived in Sault Ste. Marie.

    I also overheard other stories about Renee treating the employees like they are dirt compared to her. For someone who was a pretty hefty woman before you would think she would want to be nicer to people because she has known those hurt feelings herself of being made fun of or looked at and laughed at. If Renee didn't work there anymore or apologized to that whole staff because from the looks of it they sure deserve it I would probably go back to Dock's. I had been going there for years.

    I just thought I would let Paul know - he deserves to know.

  • Order: We have had everything - we used to go in big groups

I do not see how the owners weight is relevant to a restaurant review. I think this review is petty and vindictive, your using this site to be spiteful to the business/ owner for what seems to be a very personal grudge/grievance. shame on you

  • Server was good and friendly as I noticed other servers were the same. Food was really mediocre. Barely warm appetizer. Tasted like canned mushrooms. Very good SW style soup. 2 whitefish dinners. Dry and flavorless. Fish is easy. How do you ruin fish? Overcook, over batter. Really poor for the price.

  • Order: stuffed mushrooms, soup and whitefish

  • Unfortunately the view is no where near enough to make up for the overpriced, freezer burned food that was served to us for over $20/plate

    to make it worse the average service was nothing compared to the extremely arrogant managment/owner who didn't want to hear any feedback from his customers at all

    With an attitude like that he'll find himself with no complanints at all...as he'll have no customers at all

    There aren't enough tourists to go around to fill all his seats without the locals,,,so he should watch out

  • Order: fish and chips

  • We dined here after a the train trip up to the canyon. We had the best cream of chicken soup ever. Great view of the river, locks and bridge back to the States. Thank you for a great experience.

  • Beer selection limited.
    The "trout" was excellent -- for catfish.
    Waiter and crowd was uppity, i.e., way to high an opinion of themselves for a rather commonplace eatery whose only attraction is the waterfront.

  • Order: Trout, cocktail, beer, chicken pasta.

  • Docks is my all time favourite place to eat when I visit the Soo. We always have great service and amazing food. The servers there are the kind of people that if they have a second, they'll stop and chat with you! It's great. My family and I always walk out with a smile on our faces :) If you visit the Soo and you dont go here... you're missing out BIG time.

  • Order: onion rings, feta brushetta, apple caramel sizzle, & drinks

  • Yesterday was my birthday and i dont enjoy the bars so my girlfriends brought me to docks for what they called jazz night it was done up beautiful all light by candles. The band was excellent and easy to listen to but still enjoy conversation and you can order off the same menu they have in the resturant through we just had apps they were prepared and presented wonderful. The two waitresses we had were happy smiling and enjoying the music as much as we did. I would recommend this as a night out to any.. thank you for a wonderful birthday experience.

  • Order: app platter, stuffed mushrooms, brussetta bread
