If you're looking for fast food for carry-out, Don's is definitely the place. They have a variety of shrimp by the pound and more than a few other items. It is small if you eat there, but the food is served very hot, and very tasty. Some of the things that we have tried with the fried shrimp are the cole slaw, the red beans and rice, as well as the hush puppies. We'll be back.

Don's Dock is a local tradition. I have gone there periodically for years. They have daily and monthly specials which are worth trying. Fried shrimp dinners or by the pound are great. If you need special orders, call ahead and they'll get it for you. For dinner parties I have ordered smoked trout or center cut wild caught salmon with no difficulty.

Don's Dock is not fancy but it has fresh seafood prepared while you wait. The fish tacos are great. They taste fresh and lite. The service is fast and efficient. You can order ahead and pick it up to go.
