The food was horrible. The more I think about the way we were treated and served the more upset I become! The fried fish was horrible, the hushpuppies mushy and the french fries greasy. We requested to sit at a normal table but was told we couldn't and were seated by the restroom.

Do NOT recommend this restaurant at all!!!!!

the bathrooms are shared with community swimming pool kids - totally disgusting and should warrant a serious food inspection infraction until fixed

Can't wait for another business trip to Scottsboro so I can have another excellent evening @ The Docks. I highly recommend a trip on Thurs, Fri, or Sat. The outdoor entertainment was really good and the food was amazing!

I recently saw a couple very embarrassed when they brought another couple in their boat to the restaurant for lunch on Sunday only to find it closed. Please correct your answering machine message that states that you are open for lunch starting at 11 AM on Sundays. The appearance of your restaurant from the lake/beach side is appalling. The trellis is in bad need of replacement and the trash around your outdoor patio (much of it obviously from your restaurant such as beer pitchers, straws, cups, etc) makes your facility look anything but "first class".

The Docks is our favorite place for celebrations as well as ordinary dining. Beginning with the cheese fritters and ending with the key lime pie, this is the place for excellent food as well as service and entertainment.

The Docks is a fantastic place to dine. The appetizers, especially the Fried Green Tomatos are the best I have ever tasted. I will be back.

The food at the Docks is better then some of the high price restaurants like Ruth Chris Steak House or McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant. The Shrimp and Grits is just like what you would get in the low country of GA and SC and the deserts remind me of Jestine's Kitchen in Charleston, SC. Try the Grouper fingers for an appetizer and take the soup or gumbo instead of the salad, you will be well rewarded.
