3 buddies and I take a fall golf trip to Goose Pond, The Docks is always one of your must eats. The seafood and steaks are great, appetizers are really good (Fried Green Tomatoes, Coconut Shrimp and especially the Grouper Fingers). This time I had the fried Oysters, fantastic and a huge portion. Wait staff is very friendly and attentive.... More

This is our "go to restaurant" for special occasions or to entertain out of town company. The view is second to none, especially at sunset. You can go by car or by boat. Sure, sometime you have to wait but just enjoy! I have never had a bad meal and the salad dressings and desserts are made by the owner.... More

My husband and I recently got married and we had our reception at The Docks. We cannot say enough good things about Linda and the rest of the staff. Also, the food and the view are to DIE FOR!!!!! Linda and her staff were so accommodating and made everything so perfect for our big day. People are still raving about... More

Heard great reviews so decided to try them - BAD IDEA!! Grits could have been used for softball or wallboard paste! 8 shrimp were nice size and tasty. Said andouille sausage in sauce - I'm from Louisiana and that wasn't even close! Sauce was spicey and tasteless with tons of bell pepper - burped it all night. Strawberry Margarita was... More

Shrimp and Grits are the best anywhere. The view of the water is beautiful and you can actually pull right up to this restaurant's dock area via your boat!

We eat here about three times a year. The Entrees are usually good. The Cheese Fritters and Tuna Bites a exceptiobal, but the house salad is a disappointment. It's mostly lettuce (99%), not what I consider a salad. If you can eat outside, the view is awesome, but eating inside is extremely noisy. Service is average.

My wife and I ate here recently on a Saturday night. The unfriendly hostess asked if we had reservations (we didn't) and said it would be about a half hour wait for a table and that the bar was full. We immediately found an open space at the bar and decided to order dinner there. After about 30 minutes the... More

This is the second time I visited and both time the hostesses acted like they couldn't be bothered with seating us. There were at least a half a dozen empty tables and we were told we couldn't be seated for 30 minutes. Went to the bar and ordered food. It took nearly AN HOUR to get our food. When it... More

If you enjoy setting outside while you dine and listening to live music towards the week-end, visit the Docks. Your river view is looking Southwest down one of the widest sections of The Tennessee River as it flows Southwest towards Guntersville from Scottsboro. The menu offers Local Specialties that will appeal to all. With a selection of Seafood, Steaks, and... More
