Ordered food and it was just okay. Oysters were thick, chewy and rubbery. Chicken strips while they advertise as homemade, frozen would have been better as the breading fell off leaving cold chicken meat. Drinks started out in glasses then next round were in plastic....More

Since deciding to get back into Live music, I have found this is the place to be every Saturday night in Tacoma. The bar service is great, the staff keeps the place really clean, and are very attentive. "I ordered the wings once and they...More

Not impressed. The server was friendly but the service slow. The food wasn't bland and not tasty. The restrooms leave a lot to be desired. The view is the about the only redeeming value.

Rock the Dock is a pretty basic pub but the food and service were both good, and prices reasonable. Decor is nothing special at all but the view to the water is great and the patio would be nice on a sunny day. It's a...More

I like this place. Good food, just remodeled. They have improved the variety of beers, If you expect a quiet romantic place this may not be it. The patrons are local folks, mostly blue collar types. sometimes boisterous, sometimes quiet. Check their Facebook site for...More

Pretty much your standard pub grub. The bathroom was very dirty (never a good sign). The view is good. The parking is convenient. A lot of really drunk people. But the reason why I will never return is the horrific service provided by some rude...More

Stumbled upon this place by accident, great little "divey" type place on the water. They have patio seating as well as the bar room seating. I've been a couple times, and return for the low-key, locals only aspect. They were playing musical bingo the last...More
