Dock’s is another place that’s been around forever, but it looks more like an old country club or somewhere you’d go for your grandparents’ 50th-anniversary party (just don’t forget your starchy khaki pants or to part your hair to the side like your nana likes). It has white tablecloths and dark wood walls, and the food is classic Shore seafood. Focus on the raw bar - it’s the best one in the area - and if it’s your anniversary you’re celebrating, the lobster is a great choice.
