Dick's Hickory Dock auctioned off

The former Dick's Hickory Dock, a river-side restaurant on Highway 74 between Morrison and Evergreen, was sold at auction by Sheldon Good & Company on December 12.

Dick's, which opened back in the '70s and snagged a Westword readers' choice award for Best Barbecued Ribs in the Best of Denver 1999, started going downhill soon after, with a series of disappointing business deals. (You can read about some of them here.) By 2005, it had become the Flaming River -- and then it flamed out altogether.

The original asking price for the two-building property was $395,000, but at auction, the minimum bid was just $100,000.
