Great location, food is good. Good, but not great. The king salmon chile spiced tuna was an interesting creation and it was very good. The encrusted walleye was enjoyed as was the shrimp diablo. We had no service problems, they were more than adequate from what we saw. The high point here is the magnificent view of the waterfront & outdoor dining. That is worth the drive alone. Be prepared to wait in the summer months, although we lucked out for a Saturday evening. Appetizers were nice; the catfish fingers were a bit greasy & over deepfried, but the artichoke ramekin gets high marks for taste. Come for the view, enjoy the food & the sunshine!
fantastic view. a great view, to bad the food is not as good. ah yes, the wait staff, we are still waiting for them. go to the bar and get your own drinks, it's a lot faster. try to bring your own food, it will taste better and be served faster.
ambience, a view, and food too.
We visited Dock Cafe for a group lunch, and were pleasantly suprised. The place has a swanky feel, even though it is a "cafe". The service personnel were very attentive, and worked hard to make the experience memorable. And the views out the windows to the St. Croix river were superb.
The "lift bridge burger" received rave reviews from the two that had it. I had the shiitake encrusted chicken breast entree. The food quality was excellent, but the portion was a little small. More attention goven to presentation (artistic arrangement of the two small breast pieces, the mashed potatoes and the julienned carrots) than satisfying an appetite. But there was good bread to fill the gap.
A good place to take some one you want to impress, or show that you care that they have a good experience.
Perfection!. Ate here on a warm summer evening for a special occasion -- I'd go back in a minute. Steak was fork-tender; salmon was perfect; shiitake-encrusted chicken breast was mouth-watering. Instead of waiting for an outdoor table we decided to sit inside and were seated right next to a window overlooking the deck. It was pricey, but worth it. Mmmmmmm, good.
