    I think OpenTable is becoming Yelp. I heard about Dock Local in an email touting it as a great place for brunch. I can’t imagine it as a great place for brunch. There is no atmosphere and the food is pretty horrible. We got a bowl, a cup of bisque and shrimp tacos. The shrimp weren’t done and the sauce on the taco was jarring on the tastebuds. It didn’t even arrive at the table looking appealing. The bowl was more cavâtappi than anything else. The lobster in the bisque wasn’t chewable. The only redeeming item were the chips…a little greasy but very crisp. A very sad night at the dining table, and it makes me do a double-take when choosing a restaurant from OpenTable’s recommendations.

    Clean, bright, friendly, casual environment with waaaay better than “casual” seafood. If you’ve been jonesing for lobster, especially a lobster roll, this is definitely the place. Bonus: it’s one of the few places I’ve found that offers more than one style of roll all the time. Really, Dock Local’s lobster rolls are better than the ones I’ve had in both seafood market/restaurants and the more formal “wagyu & wine” places around town for much higher $$$. Id put it toe to toe w/any of them, any day. Every other item we ordered- lobster grilled cheese, lobster bisque, the homemade chips and crispy shoestrings- was done just perfectly. I’ll bet that no matter what you get, you won’t be sorry- and you’ll spend significantly less $$$. Psst also they have a 10% off Groupon ($36 for $40 worth) for now too….so go for it!

    First time! They greeted us at the door and were super helpful the whole time. We each got one of their rolls and they were all very tasty! We will for sure be going back.

    I am absolutely blown away with every single thing about this place!!! My friend even said she would drive at night through a storm with a tornado if it meant coming to eat here again all the way from south mansfield!! We came before a Stars game and we were able to walk right up to order. There were so many options on the menu so we tried a little of each! Everything we tried I would get again with no hesitation with both food and drinks. I personally love the cold rolls so I got one and split another one with a friend! My friends also got the warmed Connecticut roll and loved it! Pro tip ORDER THE PICKLES!!! We ended up getting 3 orders to go! As well as their version of elote and another round of sealed drinks. My mom doesn't like "swimy food" so she got the pacific bowl and was thrilled with the size and flavors of it, so there's something for everyone it seems like! I can't wait to come back and try even more!

    Pretty casual place located in the posh West Village area but the food definitely holds it own. If you are all about the food (seafood) and less about the presentation, then you will like this place. Crab Queso was a nice twist to a traditional Tex-Mex starter. Great flavor and it was served with homemade potato chips which held up nicely in the queso. We ordered the salmon with cauliflower rice (chalkboard special) and a lobster grilled cheese sandwich. The salmon was well cooked and came on top of the rice in a paper bowl (hence my earlier comment). Only thing we should have changed was to get the fresh veggie ranch topping on the salmon on the side (tasty, but a little too much). The lobster grilled cheese was an amazing sandwich and one that I would go back for. Even though this is a order at the counter establishment, the service was very nice. They bring your food and drink to your table and check on us several times during our meal. The place was fairly crowded but the food rolled out pretty quickly. Only real ding would be that it would be nice to get the queso brought to the table before the entrees but really not that big of deal. We will be back.

    I love the freshness of the food. The margaritas were potent and flavorful. The lobster bites were meaty and absolutely incredible! I loved it so much I visited twice in 3 days! I felt like the cost was a tad bit high but the service is so impeccable, it was well worth it!

    Date night for my husband and I. We decided to go with Dock Local over Yo Lobster at the last minute. Food and service was much better. Laid back, relaxed and less stuffy. The fish tacos were yummy. The lobster roll was delicious. We’ll definitely add this to our list.

    No one welcomed us when we walked in, although there were 4 people behind the counter, and we stood there for a while before our order was taken. There was only one other person in the restaurant. We only ordered margaritas which were super cheap ($7 for 2 for Mother’s Day) but they were not good.

    Food was awesome, pricey but..lobster. It was among the best if not the best lobster roll I’ve had in Dallas. Laid back atmosphere, order at the counter and they bring food to you. Minor mix up on my order but they took care of quickly. Good spot overalls, will be back.

    I had the All-In Knot roll and the shoestring fries. Everything was delicious! The only thing that I wasn’t too happy about was the size of the roll as it was smaller than I expected for the price, but it was still a delicious experience.
