The Dock at Crayton Cove has been around since the mid-70s - a slump of a seafood shack marina-side cooled by sea breezes. It is the epitome of Old Naples pre-gentrification. Not much has changed through the decades. There's still fried seafood specials, raw oysters and a lively bar scene. The menu has progressed through the years to inject exotic Caribbean flavor into the menu. Think blackened grouper on Cuban bread, key lime grouper with citrus butter sauce, Jamaican Red Stripe ribs with guava BBQ sauce and paella. Rivaling its reputation for food and casual fun, the Dock hosts its annual Great Dock Canoe Race, a wacky parade of decorated paddle craft the second Saturday in May. Started in 1976, it today draws thousands to cheer and jeer.
- Seafood: "A rum punch is the perfect complement to The Dock's tropical temperament, and the Rhum Boogie will make you do just that. Boogie on!"
- Waterfront Dining: "Start your meal with Dock Shrimp Machos - a tasty twist on same-old."
- Family Friendly, Lunch: "Start your meal with rock shrimp nachos - a fishy twist on same-old."
- Best for Seafood Because: Situated at the Naples city dock, it couldn't be saltier. Seafood is prepared with a Caribbean flair.
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: It overlooks the harbor at the Naples City Dock with plenty of salty flavor.
- Best for Family Friendly Because: A casual open-air waterfront atmosphere and eight-item kids menu recommend it to families.
- Best for Lunch Because: With its view of a yacht harbor, it sets the perfect scene for a salty lunch in a quintessential Naples location.
