Chilly winter night, we felt like take out chowder and chose Docks solely for location and convenience. Guess you could say our fault. Haddock chowder AND clam chowder bland, almost totally tasteless and extremely thin, especially the haddock. Definitely will drive a bit next time we have the chowder urge. Won't be back

A good bet for all things seafood, cooked any way you want it. Don't expect cloth napkins and crystal, that's not what you're there for...you're there for fresh seafood and that's just what you're gonna get.

Two recent dining experiences over the last 6 months confirm to me that this place is a winner and must visit. Vast menu and a lot of specials with some of those being non-seafood dishes. I went with a 2-way (calamari and clam strips) dinner combo for $16.99 and substituted onions rings for an additional $2.50. A big plate of... More

I have relatives in South Portland and I love Dock's - awesome:)) I have eaten here multiple times over the last 2-3 years. It is family dining type restaurant - not fancy but delicious. All the relatives coming from down below go here. Enjoy!

The minute we walked in we were happy to have chosen this place! The twin lobster meal, lobster roll and two different chowders was so so good...I wish we had more time in the area to visit a few more times. The lobster was cooked just right...melt in your mouth goodness! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! The... More

Stopped in here for lunch and we stood around for a little not sure how things worked. Once we looked lost, we were told to read the menu off the wall and order at the register. The staff was very nice. The lunch special was about $7 so we opted for that, I got fired shrimp and fries and my... More

My husband and I had the Haddock. I had the sandwich and my husband had the platter. The fish was so fresh that when I went to take a bite of my sandwich, it literally flaked apart in the bun and some onto my plate. It was so tasty and melt in your mouth that you didn't care how messy... More

Made it Maine looking for a great lobster roll. Was expecting a warm lobster roll but theirs was like a lobster salad. Portion size was pretty small for a $14 sandwich with very little flavor. Needless to say was disappointed. Crab cakes were good though.

We allowed Trip Advisor to send us to this #2 rated diner......ambiance was just that a diner with the menu listed on the wall.....we ordered lobster nuggets and fried clam combo with fries to share among the three of us, as well as we each had lobster bisque. The nuggets were generous, the clams few (maybe four strips) and the... More
