A mini-sandbox, 3 mini-golf holes and kid books to borrow help kids pass the waiting time. Kid meals were also generously sized and loved my our group! Adults loved their food and the view too ... read more

Great Braised beef on a fabulous apple raisin coleslaw, beautiful outdoor seating, well covid spaced with warm and accommodating staff. A perfect combination with the ferry ride. Highly recommend that you do both.

We saw this restaurant as we came in by ferry, and we were glad we stopped in. The service was friendly and prompt. Our food was good. I had the fish and chips. The fish was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Loved the fries too! The lobster cheese fries were my daughter's choice, not mine. My other daughter had the burg ... read more

This is not The Old Dock of yesteryear! Great service from Amanda right out of the blocks. Helpful beer & food recommendations. I had the duck wings as an appetizer and the fish & chips. Both were tasty and well prepared, portions we generous. We shall return!

A great surprise . They were very busy and inspite of this ,we not the tables we wanted. We were warned of possible delays. There were none and the meal was way better than expected. We have known the Old Dock for over 40 years and it is on a high. Wait staff were attentive and efficient. Top marks ... read more

Lakeside Charm with Good Food & Drink
There are few things better than sitting on the Old Dock's deck with its sweeping views of Lake Champlain and the iconic mountain appropriately named Camel's Hump, right across the lake in Vermont. That alone makes a visit here totally worth it. But I can assure you after quite a few visits to this restaurant that the food and drink ... read more

Excellent visit in Early September 2019
We visit the Old Dock every year, at least once. We come across the Ferry from VT and we love it. I saw some bad reviews and felt compelled to write one since our only complaint has been a long wait when it is busy. Other than that our experience is usually 5 stars, and this visit was no exception. My wife and I set out side, and had ... read more

Spectacular views. Good food.
stacey stanhope via - Apr 27, 2020
My daughter and mother went for lunch on Wednesday and said it was great. My daughter loves her pulled pork sandwich and the price of $12 was reasonable. The view is spectacular and I think the Old Dock does best when it focuses on burgers, sandwiches and great service.

The food was pretty good, the view is beautiful. We also really enjoyed the musician, the lady who was singing has a very beautiful voice. Overall very pleasant experience.

Came on a busy Friday summer night and were seated quickly. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Food was absolutely delicious (especially their Parmesan fries!). Beautiful view and incredibly clean. Overall, great service and wonderful experience.
Em Houghton via - Apr 27, 2020
Our wait staff although pleasant and efficient broke a food service code in ny book. She referred to us as guys! Which i am not! The chicken wings were over cooked but the sauce was yummy.
Antoinette K via - Apr 27, 2020
The service was OK and the food (branch menu) was delicious! (Or was it just us super hungry after climbing trails for half a day?) I wish it was cleaner inside, hopefully that wouldn't destroy the atmosphere of the early 19th century building.
Igor Korobka via - Apr 27, 2020
Food is good. Can't beat the view and waterfront location. I sit outside and watch the ferry come and go.

Great access by boat, good food, good drinks, and good service. We'll return again several times during our vacation this year.

Can't beat the location on a gorgeous summer day or evening! We kept it simple, and only got club sandwiches, but they were delicious. And they accommodated our gluten-free needs, as well.

Hard to find this place but they serve the coldest beer around and the food is superb. Look for the Essex ferry terminal and this place is next door.

We visit this place every summer! The outdoor atmosphere is so lovely! The staff are always attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend the French dip; it is the best I have ever had!
Cheyenne Stokes via - Apr 27, 2020
We only had 30 min while awaiting the ferry, so we opted for a couple drinks at The Old Dock. Perfect. Wish we'd had time for dinner as the menu looked quite good. I had a tap beer and my wife a tangerine Martini. We got some of their parmesan fries. Sat on the deck overlooking the lake.
Parker Kelley via - Apr 27, 2020
Beautiful views, great watching the ferry go out.
