OC Weekly's Description

The Dock is located in the claustrophobic side streets of
Balboa's Cannery Village where parking is scarce and metered. Owners Dennis
and Christine Overstreet reclaimed the place from the failed Arches on the
Water, changed the menu, reupholstered the couches, added votive candles and
a fire pit. But the hook of the place hasn't changed: the patio is still
breezy, open to the elements, and so close to the water you can skip a stone
from your seat. You can still moor your Duffy boat on the restaurant's dock
just like before, but the food is much improved. Try their lamb, which is
roasted, rested, and sliced so precisely it seemed like they've perfected the science of meat cookery.
