The scenery late in the afternoon as the sun sets is fantastic. My wife and I have had dinner her a few times and have enjoyed watching the boats coming in and out along with the sunset. The Hard Dock has garage style doors that open up to give this restaurant a very open feel. The bartenders and servers are... More

The waitresses were very friendly, we both had the burgers and it was fresh Angus beef. Since, this was our first time there...it is safer just to order burgers. If burgers are not good, then the rest of food wouldn't be either. We got there early Saturday afternoon, seat yourself either inside or out. Server was immediately there for you... More

We were visiting in town and decided to try this place. It was amazing. The food is delicious and atmosphere is amazing. You sit out on a dock on the water. It's great for a family dinner with the kids or a grown up night out later on in the evening.
