Been there several times and love it every time. Takes a bit to get used to the ordering process. You have to order drinks at the bar and food at a separate food bar. Be ready to order when you get up there because they're busy! Crawfish bites are always good and the crab claws are excellent but they run... More

Okay food, not great, the kids loved feeding the fish. Difficult to find from land, and ordering is difficult with a large group since you have to order drinks at bar and order your food separately at the kitchen window.

If you are looking for a place that makes you feel like you are at the lake (or at the beach), this is it. Great decor, nice atmosphere and loud music BUT...that's about all you will get. Food is so-so...and you have to get it yourself...and wait, and wait and wait for it. And it's eh...Drinks are pricey but if... More

I moved to the lake a few weeks ago, love it ! Out with friends trying out new places. This place is hard to find. Parking is limited at best. I ordered a Philly Cheese. The tea was instant, yuck. After a long wait, and they were not busy, we went to the kitchen and got our food. Nothing special,... More

Been coming to docknockers for years now for so many reasons.The food is amazing the staff they have great humor and service. It's unlike any other restaurant in the lake area if you want to have great food/time. They have an awesome deck area that views the lake. It's a little hard to find the restaurant the first time but... More

Good food, however, you have to serve yourself both for food and drink. You order at a counter in the kitchen which is the hottest place you will ever stand in line to order food. Other than that it's a good place to set and enjoy the lake.

Plastic lawn furniture to dine at. Drunken frat boys and bachelor parties as the atmosphere. Don't bother looking at the menu because they are out of half the items listed. The service is non-existent so I can't even give them a true rating. It is basically a rowdy bar that happens to have a deep fryer in the back. Don't... More

This is a great place to get seafood on the water. They have clams, shrimp, fish, etc. to go along with burgers, wraps, and salads. Mostly outdoor seating with views of the lake. It is very casual and you can go up straight off the boat. This is also my favorite place on the lake to get drinks. The rum... More
