Review: Jim’s Dock

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  July 25, 2012

Two of us got the fried oysters ($20), a generous pile of the plump fellas atop fries apparently dusted with flour before frying, for extra texture. On the side was tartar sauce and a larger plastic cup of coleslaw (not as juicy as I prefer, but that's me), just the meal to have with plastic cutlery and a paper towel napkin.

Mr. Bay Area got the specials-board seafood scampi over angel hair pasta ($29), paying a buck more for the kitchen to hold the shrimp and substitute more lobster with the big, browned sea scallops. The delicate pasta wasn't overcooked and came with an ice cream scoop-sized pile of shredded Parmesan on the side. What a delightful dish. Johnnie had another special, a huge slab of swordfish ($25), not rubbed with Cajun spices as I've enjoyed here, but topped with a nice mango salsa medley. Perfectly grilled and delicious.

Nice view, good meal, left smiling.
