Larry Hoffman, owner of Dockers Waterside in East Quogue, says when his restaurant opens for its 24rd season on March 15, customers will find some changes.
The first thing customers may notice, said Hoffman, is a new look and feel to the bar room, which Hoffman said has been renovated "with a nautical look and feel."
In addition to the interior getting a new look, the outdoor docks are also being renovated, said Hoffman
In November, the business obtained permits from the Town of Southampton Trustees to add a dock from an existing bulkhead to accommodate 16 additional boats.
"It was great that we could design a balanced project. We did a lot of environmental homework," said Hoffman.
For the foodies, Hoffman said Dockers will now be featuring a new sushi station in the kitchen with Executive Chef Scott Hastings creating specialty hand rolls.
The addition of the sushi station is something that Hoffman said he has had on his mind for a while.
"I've been dying to put sushi on our menu and we're excited about that," he said.
The grand-re-opening on March 15, said Hoffman will feature a happy hour with specials on drinks and appetizers just $5 each.
Dockers will also start the season with a $27.95, 3-course menu with steak and lobster options, which will run through Easter weekend.
Bookings for Docker's Mother's Day brunch has also already started, said Hoffman, who says the brunch is always a sell-out. This year, the event will be held on May 12 and will include live music.
Also booked this season are bands including, Paul Mahos & New Life Crisis, Steve Strecker & Mean Machine and The Fabulous NOIZ.
