You don’t need to go to Docks for a full dinner, but it’s a very good option for a quick stop during Happy Hour, which runs until 7pm. Sit at the big horseshoe bar and drink $4 beers and $7 glasses of wine while snacking on fish tacos and $1 oysters. If you’re worried that a dozen oysters won’t do much to balance out all the sauvignon blanc you're simultaneously consuming, get the fried octopus, too.
