I hardly ever attach my name to a review. However, this must be done. I had a paid reservation for City Winery last night and was looking to maneuver into an available space. Apparently, no one keeps records, because it was packed! When I started to try and squeeze into the last available slot, 2 white guys were standing there telling me I couldn't, because they paid and their friend was coming. Of course they were NOT employees of DT docks. When I informed these people I paid and was pulling in as was my right, he yelled, "What are you, stupid?" Still NO DT docks employee. I was almost into the slip when a person FINALLY appeared. Although he apologized profusely and helped me tie off in an opening slot away from those people, to my knowledge, he made no attempt to tell the other boat they had no right to tell me anything. Disorganized. It is a sad day for boaters of color because without mediation in these situations, OTHERS will always try to throw their weight around. My boat is just as big, but I should not be forced to use it to gain parity. Chicago, hire another docking contractor!!
We had a great time. Dock staff was helpful and accommodating!!
Staff was courteous and helpful. Easy to dock there. I wish there was a different VHF channel other than 16 to coordinate docking rather than trying to yell across.
The weather was really bad and we couldn’t make it. I would appreciate a refund.
Great time. Wilson took very good care of us.
No complaints. Space was open for me at the appointed time. Dock hands were right there. A very pleasant experience. I wish someone would have thought of this 30 years ago, when I had my own boat and could come to Chicago several times in a summer.
Only complaint is that it took until right before we got there to get a confirmation..I realize I only reserved Friday but I called 3 times to double check the status and only received the voicemail and couldn’t get through to an actual person. All worked out and we had a great time though!
Pulled up right on time with our spot waiting for us and 2 dock attendants! Rock Star Docking at it's finest! Thanks for a great stay!
They seemed confused when I arrived
