Docklands joined Franklin Avenue’s rapidly diversifying culinary scene in the spring of 2014. The narrow restaurant features a sprinkling of booths and several two-top tables toward the back: an ordinary setup that’s muddled, on Wednesday nights, by the unnecessary presence of a live band that overpowers the space. The venue aims to fill the block’s seafood void, with salmon, fish and chips, and steamed mussels, plus an arrangement of oysters available during happy hour, which pair well with the three beers on tap. The remainder of the menu is varied, but safely New American: turkey burgers, kale salad, lobster macaroni and cheese. A recent seasonal seafood pasta had an excellent white sauce, drizzled over juicy shrimp and crunchy vegetables, yet was too small to enjoy for long. The cocktail list is impressive, divided into “house” and “classic” cocktails: The Camille James, made with beach plum gin, Champagne, and brandied raspberry, offers a decently tart end to your evening.


Reservations only accepted for parties of six or more.
