Always Reliable

This long time resident of the Solomon's continues to deliver solid, expertly prepared and presented food. Probably the best venue on the Island, and a great bartender..

My wife and I absolutely love this restaurant. We try to go at least once every month or two. It is simply the best quality food, service, and view for a restaurant in Southern Maryland. We absolutely love it and will continue to visit this amazing establishment.

Lovely little restaurant with a Big View of harbor and Wed Nite sailboat racer returning into port. Seems that the Dry Dock has upped its game lately. Late 2 times I was there I had a Wonderful meal.

Have have lived in southern Maryland for 20 years and had never been to the Dry Dock, I finally decided to go and was pleasantly surprised. My meal was much better than I thought it was going to be. I ordered the seafood pasta and it was great. I will definitely be going back again to try something else.

Food was good service was below par. Two for two on poor service. Second time was worse than the first. Both visits the service stopped after the 'how's everything' visit by the server immediately after the entrees arrived. A second glass of wine is self service by going to the bar if you care to bother. We would have ordered... More

We were staying here on our boat and had heard a lot about this place. The view was beautiful, the server was very sweet and kind but the wait was very long and we had to keep asking for things..like water. In fairness it could have been the kitchen so I will not judge the server. The food was average...there... More

During an overnight stop in the Solomons, we had dinner at Dry Dock based on location and recommendations. We made a last-minute reservation, got in and ending up getting a great table outside with an unbelievable view on a perfect late-September evening! The harbor view from the restaurant is about as good as it gets! The service was excellent; the... More
