The Loading Dock is one of the region's true waterfront destinations. Located at the confluence of The Illinois and Mississippi Rivers, The Dock is a favorite of travelers, bicycles, boats, and bikers. The vast array of patio seating along the waterfront lends itself to quiet reflection during the summer weekdays and a party atmosphere on weekends. When you combine live music and nice weather, there are few places that can combine the wonder of nature, the fun of a casual bar, and the family friendly feel that The Loading Dock can.
