Stopping by at 4PM on a Monday worked out great. If you enjoy oysters, $1 a piece was nice and the choice was fine and they were shucked perfectly, with plenty of juice in the shell. Drinks were a bit pricey $8-$10 which probably makes...More

Loved the fresh, open remodel (but the room can get noisy). Oysters fresh and served properly, chowder is very good with rich not too thick broth, fresh clams, and tasty bacon. Crab sauté never disappoints.

Great service and food. Leave room for dessert, Joe's cheese cake is excellent. Oysters are phenomenal. Salad was great to start our meal. Wide range of wines and drinks. Highly recommended.

If you're in AC Dock's is a great place for happy hour eats. We had $1 oysters (three kinds) and heavily discounted apps, from lobster mac & cheese to smoked fish dip and calamari. There's a reason it fill s up fast.

We stopped in for their happy hour because they had $1 oysters. They were excellent! We also had the mini crab cakes which were equally good (almost completely lump crab with little filler). We decided to stay for dinner and had a great meal with...More
