Fish was very good not greasy.Very moist and cooked perfectly. Could use a little salt, but for those salt sensitive less is better.

The food was so good, neither my boyfriend nor I spoke or stopped eating until all of our food was done. We ate a TON in less than 15 mins. So funny, we didn't even speak to each other, we just signed to each other our approval each time we discovered another great trade. Oh my Gosh, we were so full!!!

Seafood platter should contain at least 4 pieces of each item. For $21 I should not have a split filet as two pieces. It was fresh and well cooked but skimpy on portions.

From Our Editors

In 1941, Wilma and Henry Dorsey opened a modest family eatery on the corner of 18th and Market in West Oakland. Over the next four decades, devoted family members transformed the place with a relocation, the addition of a cocktail lounge, and the construction of a beautiful wooden bar. Today, Dorsey family members remain the sole shareholders of a bustling restaurant that celebrates their Texas roots with country-style meals of fried chicken, catfish, gumbo, barbecue ribs, and sweet peach cobbler. A rotating weekly menu makes fresh additions to the slate of hearty, homecooked food with such dishes as chitterlings and smothered steak, while sides of collard greens, yams, and black-eyed peas garnish every dish with Southern panache.

Far more than a mere restaurant, Dorsey's Locker also treats guests to a full bar and lineup of live entertainment. On Sunday nights from 6 p.m until 10 p.m., the restaurant waives a cover charge for live R&B and jazz music. Open mic events each Tuesday show off the hidden talents of friends and neighbors, while Monday, Thursday, and Saturday-night karaoke provides a socially acceptable outlet for singing a love song to a plate of breaded pork chops.
