My wife and I had an incredible time enjoying our dinner sitting out under the umbrella on the deck watching the sunset. Docker's doesn't fry anything and I had the crabcake sandwich that was pan seared to perfection. Next time on the Island I'll plan to be here enjoying another one. I'm usually hesitant to eat seafood away from the... More

We love Dockers!!! The staff is unbelievably friendly and offer quick, impeccable service. Our favorite bartender has been Evan, but we're saddened by the news that he won't be back next year. We won't let that deter us as we're sure to find capable hands when we return next summer. The food is delicious and served quickly. We've never had... More

Just returned from KI. Dockers has very good food, the best lobster bisque on the island, in my opinion. The servers were attentive and helpful. We were there during a Cleveland Browns game. Lots of boaters there watching the game and having great drinks.

There is outdoor seating only at this restaurant/bar. It is located in the marina and you can watch boats and watercraft enter and leave as you dine. There is a live band on some nights of the week. Parking is nearby. We found the menu to be the most varied of any of the restaurants on the island. There are... More

What a great find!! Decided to eat here because of the great reviews. And we were not disappointed. Lobster Bisque was fantastic and the portion was large. Crab cakes were equally good. Walleye was the catch of the day and that was not the best, lacking some in flavor, but everything else was so good. We will definitely come here... More
