With a d├ęcor theme that's modern rustic with nautical touches, the Sandpoint-based restaurant The Burger Dock will open a second location this summer in the revamped brick building at 200 N. Fourth St.

(Editor's note: The print edition of this column stated that The Burger Dock would open Friday. However, due to construction delays the opening has been postponed.)

Co-owners Claire Anderson and Savannah Pennington and general manager Jessica Teaford's burger joint will offer a variety of food and drink. Highlights include classic and creative burgers, fries from hand-cut Idaho potatoes, salads, shakes and rotating beers on tap.

The space features multiple TVs and has various seating options, including booths, bar seats and a dog-friendly patio. It also offers takeout and online ordering. Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. (closed Wednesdays) and until 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Check for more information.
