What's cool about Dinner on the Dock?
You can reserve a VIP table if you're feelin' fancy or even a boat slip. If you're just looking to have a few drinks and socialize, there will be tons of open seating available.
I have a feeling every Thursday is going to be crazy considering the music lineup!
"This year we’ve taken it a step further and have booked acts seen on The Voice, CMT and AMT Music Awards, and American Idol. DOD is THE event of the summer for the Rockford metro area and we couldn’t be more excited about the 2023 season. See you there!" [Prairie Street]
From 5-10pm, there will be food and beer options and from 6-9pm with live music.
