We would have liked to eat outside but it was pretty crowded. The wait was longer than our stomachs could tolerate! Ended up inside which was actually great since a major storm was brewing and heading our way. My husband had the Cob salad which...More

We were looking for a waterfront spot for a snack and heard about the Red Dock. So glad we found it. It's very simple, but just the ticket for a cold beer, great water views and surprisingly good food. I had the baked brie special...More

This was a fun stop for happy hour. It's a grungy bar with a lot of charm on the dock of the bay. You can walk or pull your boat right alongside the dock and park for a drink or two.

We got to Red Dock every year to listen to our favorite local band, The Concussions, play. This place is super cool and the perfect venue for the band since they are surf rock. It's a little shack on the water with island cocktails and...More

Just funky enough to be lots of fun and you can't beat the location. Love it and the food. Their sandwich choices are unique and always good. Full bar is available, but bring cash. No credit cards

Arrived here, took a leisurely stroll down the dock (about 150 yards) to the bar/grill, anticipating a nice mid-afternoon snack and drinks - just in time to see the place closing. Come on, it's only 3:30! Disappointed!

This place is a great hangout with the best ambiance north of Miami. We came for an early evening drink and left with some fabulous pics. Try the sangria!

A cute dock restaurant/bar. A quirky little spot with lots of great 60's posters and memorabilia. Cold drinks and a decent menu. We had the pulled pork and shrimp wrap. Good portions and very tasty. The cold beer hit the spot on a hot and...More

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
