A baked lobster from Docks.

A baked lobster from Docks.

Sadly Docks on the upper west side has closed, but the restaurant remains on the east side.

Docks, is just right for any kind of seafood loving family. You don’t have to dress up in a suit, but a button down shirt will be fine and fit right in. The décor is rough kind of homey, but unique and nice. The atmosphere has a certain up that gives you the feeling of security. Docks, has a wide variety of seafood, from lobster to clams to mussels to many different kinds of great fresh fishes. Docks even has delicious steak. Many people walked in at 6:11 pm and most of them were single people hoping for a table and were not in the least refused one. Our waitress was a very nice woman who didn’t bother us every second and had a great attitude toward her job.

The food came fast enough with the amount of people in the restaurant. Deciding to try this dish my friend ordered the Special: scallops cooked just right maybe a little over done, with ravioli and a light cream sauce on top.

First to come was a delicious seafood tomato flavored soup, might have had a pinch of paprika and pepper. It had swordfish, mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari. The final outcome was a great peppery spicy soup.

Lobster came next and I was dutifully impressed. 1 ½ pounds of NOT water, but actual meat, now this was good. With garlic mashed potato in the corner of my plate this meal was complete. Also what my friend had ordered the scallops, cooked just right maybe a little over done, with heavenly ravioli and a light cream sauce on top. Wait suddenly the chef brought out one of their best Sushi rolls. Not only does this place have seafood and meat, but also a huge selection of fine sushi.

The final dish, the Spicy Crunchy Tuna Roll was delicious. With my first bite I was astounded with the complexity and the spice that hit me hard. Done? Was I surprised? Did I like it? Yes, Yes and Yes.
