Sports fans have to love the name, which is a nod to the major league pitcher who threw a no-hitter in 1970 while on LSD. Of course, there’s much more to love about the Dock. The food is less expensive and less conventional than most sports bars, and the laid back atmosphere will conjure up that down-home feel. Pool and foosball tables are available as well to pass time between periods, innings or quarters.

Strikes and spares abound in the glamorous lower-level bowling alley, and the upstairs section holds a fantastic open-concept space with classy menu options. The Ballroom shines best during high-profile events that draw the large crowds for playoffs and title fights. With a packed house, the noise levels rival those at the actual game, it’s almost as if you’re there!
