What an absolute joke this place is, working close to this joint we've tried it out a few times for a quick bar lunch. Food is always terrible. Thought we'd give it a chance and try a few things from the very limited menu. Without exception every dish was 100% garbage. I don't care who owns this place the chef... More

Sadly, the staff were excellent, very friendly but I ordered the seafood platter, it is a joke, $32 for an entree size seafood platter, not worth 1/4 of it, for that price other restaurants feed two ppl this was not enough to feed a child

Visited on Sunday with my wife and 3 year old son. We sat in the room near the kids playground, it was very, very hot in there. The food is just ok for the price point. It was the kids meal that I was most disappointed by. For $9 Fish and Chips there was one tiny strip of fish with... More

Hi Azza M, sorry that your visit was not up to your expectations, and thank you for your feedback, I will certainly look at the kids meal portions. With the recent heat wave, I agree, it has been rather hard to escape the heat! - DD crew More

This is a popular place with seniors taking lunch specials from as low as 10 $ Foods fresh as the place is full and all the staff are friendly and efficient Nice outdoor area overlooking the water and typical Irish table and chairs inside Good food good price would return

Drop in here semi-regularly for lunch over the past few years. Service has always been friendly and efficient. Atmosphere is good, and there are water views if you like to sit outside. Usually get the 'special' $10 lunch which is always very good, and the menu changes regularly. Had Whiting, chips & salad on this visit. Excellent. Recommended.

We were a bit bored with food choices so we thought let's find an irish pub - they are almost always good value. Thus we found Dublin Docks. Even though they had two large groups in they were friendly and accommodating. We had a table right next to the kids area - did i mention kids area? This was a... More

Unfortunately the place is always understaffed at its busiest periods, the Keno machine never seems to be working right, the food is quick and average about what I would expect for a bar meal. One thing that did disturb me was getting paid out for my Melbourne Cup bet which which was a little over $2000 I went to collect... More
