Not much in the way of atmosphere inside (the outside patio is closed for the season) and not much in the way of good eats (sad lobster roll, just ok fries), Dry Dock does feature friendly service and the soul music is rocking so there is that. Chi-lites, Barry White, Rufus and Chaka Khan, yea that works.
Because when The Monster heads to Portland, Maine the first thing he is going to do is get a lobster roll. Call it nostalgia, but even a sad lobster roll like this tastes better by the salty-aired port. Because you’re in Maine and the lobster will never be fresher.
And further, The Monster always wants to take in new restaurants so he ends up at Dry Dock even though from the looks of things he should have turned around.
So while Dry Dock may be a great place to sit outside when the weather is warm and drink a beer it is not a great place to eat indoors when the weather starts to turn nasty.
Why go? Better weather.
