Food was very good but the real stand out was the waitstaff. I wish I could remember her name (must be because of the giant martini :) ) She could not have been more lovely. Thank you for making our last night so enjoyable.

We had the best food I've had in months. From the herb crusted bread thru dessert everything was top notch and at very resonable prices. You will not leave here disappointed

We decided to check out the Dry Dock after a morning hike. The hostess told us that their lobster rolls were exceptional, and not like everyone else's. We each had lobster rolls, with chips and pasta salad. White Sangria was our accompaniment. When you're hungry...More
