We got together with a small group to talk with a Indexed investment specialist. Great discussion and enjoyable dinner. Great view of the River. The food was delicious with nice presentation. The Old Dominion football team was staying there for the night prior to the game. We got to say hello and cheer them on. The restaurant is located in... More

I actually ate here more than once during my visit to the Sheraton Watersides Hotel, and I was very impressed with each visit. I will admit that the breakfast buffet was not INCREDIBLY unique or "over-the-top" loaded. (For example, for the meats I would have enjoyed corned beef hash, but all they had was bacon or sausage.) But the meats... More

Our visit to City Dock was not what we expected. It took an hour to finally get our food. Very overpriced. Needless to say we never ate here again while staying at the Sheraton.

I was at the Sheraton, where this restaurant resides, and ate several meals here. I rated it "average" because it was not all that bad, nor all that good. I had the fried catfish, which ranked among the worst catfish I have ever eaten. All cornmeal, and no fish. Pathetic. On the other hand the she crab soup was quite... More

We got into the area late in the evening and were not able to get reservations in another restaurant so we decided to default to the restaurant in our hotel. What a total waste of money. Not only was the server snippy and abrupt, but the food was a total disappointment. I ordered mushroom ravioli which was mostly a bowl... More

Staying at the hotel, I ordered food from the restaurant to take up to my room. The gal at the bar was very helpful and friendly, but the food was sub-par. I ordered a burger and fries, and the patty and fries seemed to be pre-frozen and microwaved when I ordered. Nice to have a place to grab a drink... More

Service OK, friendly enough. Not a knowledgeable service staff, but willing and tried. I had a rib eye, with a chili rub. The meat was wet, recently slaughtered, not aged or dried, just like Walmart meat. Poor quality for $33. The veggies, asparagus and Yukon gold mashed, we're tasty...so not one star. I thought a chain would at least be... More

City dock restaurant produced the most perfectly cooked omelet I have ever. Attentive service but the vaulted ceiling made for a draft slightly colder than the luke warm coffee. Though I did not eat from the hot buffet, the football team partook of it heartedly... seconds if not thirds. The cereal bar was well stocked with healthy grains and yogurts.... More
