Dock Browns Lakeside Tavern
Atmosphere on deck overlooking beach is very nice. Service was very slow to start but then it got better. Very expensive for the portions. Two sandwiches, two drinks and one appetizer for LUNCH was $90! We did have the “special” steamed clams and one of the sandwiches was a lobster roll ($25) but still pricey. Do not get the chicken sandwich - paper thin, roll was twice the size of chicken and it was so overcooked and dry I couldn’t eat it.
We made a reservation and when we got there they asked us to go someplace else because their kitchen staff couldn’t keep up. We were finally seated and had to wait a super long time for our food. When it finally arrived the order was all wrong and nothing was done about it. Then they ran out of the usual size soft drink cups and gave us small ones but said we could get free refills. Well guess what?? We were charged for the second refill. It’s sad because it used to be an exceptional place to dine.
Reservations were spot on and the table was perfect with a wonderful view of the water. The place was busy as expected yet service was very responsive.
Soup was excellent. Loved the crab dip and the shrimp tacos were very tasty and well cooked.
Food was great. We had Brian for our Server and he was the best! We had everything we needed at all times. And he sang me happy Birthday 😊
Our first time there and we will definitely be back.
The only thing I can say is I wish we could hear the music outside on the deck!
We asked for a room inside with our reservation. But when we got there the only tables were on the outside deck. The sun was very hot that day (near 90), which we were trying to avoid.
The delicious lobster rolls, generous with chunks of lobster, never disappoint here. And the gin/cucumber cocktail was delicious. Our server was friendly and competent, worked very hard to please us. Biggest complaint is the length of time it took us to get our food. The kitchen was very backed up and despite the extremely hardworking wait staff, they were understaffed. This seems to be a common problem right now, especially at popular places like Dock Browns.
Great experience and highly recommend dining here. We will definitely be back!
Love the setting! Like the fact that you can book a spot on the porch as so many are first come, first serve. Our waitress was superb! ( I wish we remembered her name). They seemed to have some trouble in the kitchen, however. Long wait for our appetizers of wings and crab cakes... in fact they never came! Entrees showed up first and fish tacos and lobster roll were good. Medium rare burger was well done but didn’t complain. Took the meat right off. They comped 2 desserts which was very appreciated. Can’t say enough about our waitress who was cheerful and “ rolled with it” with apologies galore. We will go back because of her and try again. Maybe a simpler menu with less choices would benefit the kitchen.
Great food, service and view!
Great food and service! Would definitely go back!!!
The view spectacular, the food outstanding and our Server, James, was a gentleman and a real professional.
We were fortunate to have a fun waitress and dine while
Watching the beautiful sunset!!!
Sat outside, nice view of the lake! Food was great, our waitress Melissa was awesome! They had a band that night as well it was a good start to the weekend
All staff are attentive and cheerful make you feel like they want you to be there and that you should enjoy yourself. Our regular weekly visit always relished and never disappointed.
Great menu!! Check out the shrimp!!
Great cocktails too! Bravo!
This was our first time dining here and we had an AMAZING experience! The food was delicious, reasonably priced and the service was wonderful, especially our server Melissa!! To make the night even better was the beautiful sunset! We will be back!!
The ambiance and atmosphere was nice, and we had a wonderful waitress. Unfortunately our visit felt a little rushed and the food seemed overpriced for what it was. It was a good experience and has a beautiful view of the lake.
Excellent service! Rebecca our waitress is the best! Very attentive and accommodating and very knowledgeable about menu choices. Nice selection of menu items ! Outstanding views on the outside deck! We ate there yesterday and this morning they were featured on our local news channel! I’ll be sure to make future reservations way in advance as I’m sure they will be busier as the season progresses ! Well done, Doc Brown’s. We can’t wait to go back !
The outside deck has a great view of the lake. Due to high volume of customers the kitchen does get backed up with appetizers coming out with dinners. Food is really good. Nice place for a casual meal with a terrific view.
We ended up leaving because our sever was rude and we had gone for the special that was posted on Facebook that same day - so we imagined that meant it was happening. When we asked we got attitude then the story changed as to why it wasn’t happening multiple times. We ended up leaving and going to Nostalgia down the street and they had friendly, fast service with an even better special than here. New favorite place to go on Wednesday. I wish it was dock browns but not anymore or ever again.
The service my family had at Doc Brown’s last Sunday was terrible. The worst I’ve had at a restaurant in years. If it hadn’t been my son’s birthday dinner we would have left. We sat at our table for a half hour before a server came to take our order. My husband had to go in and ask twice to make this happen. Everything took far longer than it should have and then things were forgotten. When our drinks came out two of them were forgotten and we had to order them again. When our dinners came out they did not have my husband’s meal and he had to wait for it. The wait staff and management didn’t seem too concerned about the long wait we had only a quick insincere “Sorry for the wait.” And after all that the food was just ok. It was described as upscale pub food. “Just ok” pub food is more like it. Clearly, this restaurant survives because of its location on Saratoga Lake not for its service or food. Find another lake front restaurant to enjoy and stay clear of this one.
We had an outside table with a beautiful view of the lake. The staff was attentive, accommodating and friendly especially William , our waiter!
The food was very good and came out promptly. Very freshly prepared ! We will definitely go back soon!
My gf and I were looking for a nice outdoor patio with view of the water and you don’t get much closer than this. We LOVE food and the menu was not overwhelming but definitely packs a punch from a light appetizer (ask for more crostini with the crab dip, trust me, they’re both incredible) to a plate full of scrumptious servings I’d have to say we enjoyed it all very much. Plus one of the owners would make their rounds and ask everyone how they were and if they were enjoying the food. That says a lot to me about their character and the level of care they express in their business succeeding. Not only will we be back, but I highly recommend giving them a shot.
Server also items from our order were incorrect whe.
New chef, good food, great waitress Drae(sp?). Cant beat the sunsets from here! Looking forward to live music this summer!
Hostess was able to accommodate us on a very busy Mother's Day. Pretty noisy inside, but the food and ambiance were good and prices reasonable.
How wonderful to sit outside, cocktail in hand, and have a great view of the water. Had an early lunch reservation and loved the food. The fish and chips were fantastic and the shrimp tacos were plentiful. The servers were great and ours especially was relaxed and fun and efficient. I took a chance booking this place and it paid off big time. We will be back next trip.
The crab cake was great, the shrimp taco not a wonderful.
Only disappointment was I had not received a return call to the 2 messages left to inquire about handicapped accessibility for my 95 yr old mother who uses a walker and whether or not they were serving lobster rolls. We went anyway and were pleased with the accessibility, but very disappointed with no lobster rolls. The alternate, fish and chips, was outstanding but neither of us recd any coleslaw, as stated on the menu.
Great service, good food, and nice views of the lake
Great atmosphere, drinks and food. Sat at the bar and had a relaxing Sunday out. Tina the bartender was great!!!
It was our daughter’s birthday and she attends college in the area. Although it was a chilly April day, we sat outside on their deck overlooking Saratoga Lake since we had our puppy with us. They could not have been nicer - they set up a heater without us asking and even brought the dog her own water bowl!. Service was great and the food was all fresh and delicious. We had the crab cake appetizer - the crabcake was almost pure crab meat with very little, if any, filler. Big and juicy, perfectly cooked (and I’m from the Chesapeake Bay so I know!). We had some salads - the Beet/goat cheese and the Tuna Niçoise - both delicious. The Tuna was seared perfectly and the portions were very substantial. The kids got chicken tenders (teriyaki and bbq) which they gobbled up and they all got burgers with fries. What they didn’t eat, they took back to their dorm for a late-night snack. This place is off the beaten path but we will definitely be back.
Great porch, nice view and very attentive service. Drinks and wings were good as were the fish tacos.
Great outdoor patio overlooking the beach the inside looks really cute too!
Easy drive from downtown Saratoga springs .
Excellent food service atmosphere. We are coming back soon
Fireplace, nice view and good service. Would bring family there again.
Due to COVID it was pretty empty on this Saturday night. Service was excellent. Food was good. It was dark out - but I’m sure the view is amazing.
Strong drinks and good food! Our server was lovely. The hostess seemed flustered and wore her mask like a chin hammock.
Great food and friendly, accommodating service.
