Re: “Old Dock House Restaurant and Marina

What was once a fun place to take the ferry from Charlotte to and get a good meal in a nice atmosphere, has sadly lost any value based on the very poor quality of the food.

My wife and I have been coming here every two to four years since our first date there almost 30 years ago, and then getting engaged there a year later. While the quality of the food there has gone up and down over the years, it was always edible and often quite good.

Yesterday was a different story. We took our 5 year old grandson across the lake to get lunch while telling about our first date. The food we got was, unfortunately, nothing like it used to be. We got peanut noodles that had no flavor at all. We also ordered a artichoke crab dip. There was no crab we could see, a few pieces of artichoke, and greasy melted cheese, all of it swimming in grease. The pita bread points were so hard, you couldn't bite into them. I ordered fish and chips to share with my grandson. Thankfully, he wouldn't eat it. Even though it was extremely hot, it was soggy and the breading was not at all crisply. The fish tasted old. To be fair, my wife's chowder was edible, but may have come from a can.

The best part of the meal was the package of oyster crackers.
