Our Story

Established in 2006

Docks is located in a historic building that housed a long time local favorite, Mer's Restaurant. Taken over and rebranded in 2006, Docks was even more recently remodeled and refreshed on both the inside and outside. The new owners built a 6,500 square foot outdoor Tiki Bar deck with 65 seats, so patrons can watch the beautiful sunset while enjoying a meal or after-dinner drinks. Come enjoy the natural beauty and tranquil atmosphere right on the bluff side of beautiful Bangs Lake!
