- The Scene
This much-loved dive bar attracts blue-collar locals and retirees who revel in its come-as-you-are attitude. The Dock's dimly lit interior looks like a cross between a sea shanty and a rec room lounge from the '50s: An oversized pelican carving greets you at the door, vintage Vargas pinup girls adorn the back bar and classic photos of old Fremont cover the walls. Patrons catch a game on one of the bar's two big screens, plug dollars into the Internet jukebox or sharpen their pool skills in the adjoining game room.
Unlike the bar scene in much of its Fremont neighborhood, regulars here can enjoy a beer and a slice of apple pie in the comfort of flannel shirts and old jeans. The extensive breakfast, lunch and dinner menu is also a favorite, featuring home-style items like steak and eggs, burgers and chopped sirloin.
