I was with a group of 4 women who had drinks and lunch here. It was a lot of fun and the food was all good, the punch too!!! Definitely a lot to look at with all the memorabilia hanging on the shack. I will...More

Great vibe, fun people! Wish it was open later than sunset, hard stop at sunset. Fun drinks, didn't eat, had a blast!

We went three times, and it was closed each time. Weather was okay - not great. We were disappointed, as we were taking another couple here for the view and Key West vibe.

What a fun place to visit. It definitely gives you a Key West feel . Loved all the memorabilia! It will take you awhile to look at everything, but take your time and enjoy the rum runner. The he bathrooms are also memorable. They do...More

Saw this place on the tv show "Under the Radar" and thought we would give it a try. Ordered some wine and were told none was available at this time. All they had was garbage sangria which we paid $8.00 Per glass! This area has...More

No where did we read this is a cash only business- before we ordered. We had a hot dog & had one drink and the bill came to $22.79. Food=great but it was a rather "downer" that we left one of us at the dock...More

Walking the town looking for a great breakfast spot and found Red Dock by the suggestion of a couple of guys in town. Man, were they ever right. The breakfast was fantastic and I would eat there again! Yummy!!

Another place that only takes cash. Our server was attentive, the food and beer(canned) so-so. Expensive for what you get. ($8 sangria -really?) Allegedly, a "see-and-be-seen" spot, not sure why. Best feature, you "dine" on the water.

This place is unlike any other in the area - a hole-in-the-wall feel - great food (we had the pulled pork), great views, great people watching. It is cash only, with a small menu, but a fun, quirky place.

We loved Red Dock. our server wasn't the best, but the food made up for it. I had the Otis sandwich and I haven't had a better sandwich anywhere. Nothing is really cooked; so no fries, you get chips. great place for a quick lunch.

Nothing is "cooked" per say. It was all sandwiches which were very fresh. There aren't fried foods, to my knowledge.

Not sure about where to find the lineup but there should be a band on that date being it falls on a Sunday. They have a phone number listed on their FB page and I tried to add a link to a video but it wasn't allowed, so if... More
