    Baja Fish tacos on corn tortillas are pretty good. Great views and good vibes.

    Horrible customer service! Waitress was nasty/rude! If you want a water you have to leave your table & get it yourself. My friend had a draft beer with hair & sand in it! Avoid!Just enjoy the beach!

    Kristin Lynn · August 13, 2014
  • Miguel G.

    Beer and bar food with live music. Hard to beat.

    Miguel Gonzalez · August 11, 2014

    Do yourself a favor get a beer from the bar and forget trying to order food. This place is so unorganized with servers running everywhere and getting nothing done. The beach is the only draw!

    Much better service since the last time. Still didn't run like clockwork but wasn't waiting forever for everything. Can't beat tus place on a beautiful day.

    Terrible service. They don't get the concept of helping each other to get things done faster/better. Food and location is great. If mgmt could run a better ship, this place would be awesome.

    Kerry Nevel · July 23, 2013

    Great hangout. They have cold beer, good food and a friendly staff.

    As a picky vegetarian I must say the black bean burger with sweet potato fries is pretty solid, that is if you can make it through the long wait times!!

    Oh you'll swear you're in Florida!!!!!

    Poor service. Food mediocre. Overpriced.

    Great people watching - it's like watching Jersey Shore combined with Shahs of Sunset. Surprisingly not super crowded and the staff was pretty attentive.

    Jenny · July 1, 2012
  • Tim A.

    Cover band was kinda awful

    Tim Antonacci · June 24, 2012
  • Zachary H.

    The heavier bartender is a complete prick. Don't try to embarrass a girl for using a card to pay for drinks. You're in the service industry.

    Zachary Hanz · June 23, 2012
  • Eric M.

    Try the burger with goat cheese on a pretzel roll! I would upload a pic, but I housed the burger before I could get my phone out!

    Owned by a longtime Chicago Fire Season Ticket Holder, the Dock at Montrose allows Fire supporters to catch away matches on the beach!

    Must Have: The Fried Perogis

    Listening to a great band (weekends) over dinner! Both are delish.

    Janet · August 27, 2011
  • Jenna R.

    A lot of people standing around on their cellphones not serving their customers

    Don't sit at my table.

    Andrew Johnsos · August 15, 2011
  • Pat H.

    Only bottles water? Really? And its not even cold in the slightest!

    Great view of the beach, the tuna ceviche is a little small for the price... Read more

  • Lukasz C.

    Starting this May (year 2011) this will be an absolutely must go-to destination, great food, beer, and location without the overcrowding of North Ave. Seafood galore!
