the summer of 1966, David "Doggy" Dolinsky opened an
eight table seafood shack called "Davy's Locker".
More than 40 years later that shack is a 320-seat,
award winning restaurant located on the water with a
spectacular view of Buzzards Bay.
Today's Davy's Locker is run by third generation
owner Jeffrey L. Dolinsky and his wife Sonia who
purchased it from Doggy's son, Marvin in 2002.
Marvin Dolinsky owned Davy's Locker from 1974 to
2002 and was the driving force behind its growth.
But today is a new day at Davy's and the growth is
led by Jeffrey and Sonia. First was a full
interior décor change, complete with 780 gallons of
tropical aquariums giving the diner a South Beach
feel here in New Bedford. Next was Martini
upscale New York City style martini bar, featuring
101 martinis daily.
But the piece de resistance is Davy's Tiki Hut
located directly on the water, your Tiki Hut
experience will leave you thinking it's
Key West. But it is the great city of New
Bedford and the Tiki view is the best in town.
