      Dark and Dirty
      This place is what I would describe as a Dive bar. The bartenders were not to friendly either. Darkotica night is fun, but not too many gays.

      What the He!!..
      The Dock is ready for new owners, I think the bar could be fixed.. It used to be a great place to go and have good fun and kaughs and great drag shows but now it is a dead cell.. The drag queens have real boobs, i thought the idea was to look good as a woman not be one.. Please who ever is running the dock needs to change it before it is for sale and becomes a striaght bar.. They need to add the gogo boys back and puts some lights in the place and the ciages where even fun.. I hope for the best and hope they do something to help it.

      Very Run Down, Mix Of Old and Young Staff, and poor management has taken this place to it's grave. I'm just awaiting the day the "For Sale" Sign to go up in the window. With only being open now two days out of the week and both of them are weekdays shows this place is not the place to be anymore. Quite frankly I would like the Dock to pay me just to be their. If you wanna see a Rat run across the floor or find a roach or two around hang out here. You might go home with more than you expect on night. My best advice is to let this one die boys. Bury it and put it in the grave of the used to be "Great Gay Bars" in Cincinnati.

      What happened?
      What a tragic mess! I live in Columbus and it used to be a treat to travel to Cincinnati to enjoy a night at this hot spot. Unfortunately, it is anything but any more. The drag shows are HORRIBLE! And I like drag. However, these girls are late! What happened to the likes of Ashley West and Jareje Rashad? They were truly talented performers. The strippers! OMG, someone please feed those poor emaciated urchins. The last time that I was there, they were all so skinny that you could see all their ribs! Absolutely no definition and definetely NOT hot. Don't waste your time or your money for the cover charge. Definetely not worth it!

      So 2000 and LATE
      Seriously Lame beyond words. Lesbos need to go as they take up space hot men could occupy. Drag shows are tragic and give normal gays a bad name. Really, if I wanted to be a bitch, I would have and operation. Get over yourselves bitches. This place is tragic beyond words and the space could be better used as a parking lot for sports. Even the back parking lot isn't cruisy due to the fukn sheriff patrols. Haven't seen them in a few weeks. Maybe the bitches are being laid off. Hope so. Too many cops bothering gays. Later biotches.

      very sad
      You know times has changed when you find the club has always been a great place to be meet and just have few good laughs, Now the place is meeting place for lesbians, which is alright more the merrier. But wheres the men. Even when I spoke to one of the bartenders, things have changed for worst and he did agree. I feel the new managers should have left the way the things were, thank you for making it hard to find another club to hang out. instead of the dock , you should call it fish club. Sorry to offend anyone. But now i have to travel even further away from home just to attend and be around men. women are always welcome, but where are my friends now.

      Just don't go. Gross!
      Recently shut down on Saturday nights, which tells you how bad it must be, only open 1 weekend night. The place is a disaster. Looks like a falling apart barn. Needs a serious makeover.

      Not a disco haven
      I was hoping to see a wild 'n crazy disco scene at this place not an endless boring drag show. I was here for 3 straight nights (thur-sat) all the way from California, hoping to release a stressful day thru dancin' but it never happened. I personally hate drag shows so am not lovin the place.

      In need of Extreme makeover
      The potential is there, but this place is just run into the ground. Dirty and dark. It is a shame how it has deteriorated over the past 5 years. Put some money into this place or close it.

      This place needs to close!
      The Dock has been around since the early 80's. was a great place to go back then. Now, I would be embarrased to take anyone in there. The place is very dirty. I've even seen rats running around. The bartenders serve drinks in dixie cups. I was bored to tears with the DJ's choice of music. I even tried requesting songs and the DJ just ignored me. And I can't let this review go without talking about the drag shows. The Dock has some tired queen with a lisp and no rhythm hosting the show. Trust me, after 3 hours of a drag show and no time to dance to really bad music, I wasn't impressed.
