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..

This restaurant in Solomon's is my favorite of all the restaurants in Solomon's and on it's island. Food here is fantastically prepared, tasty - a food experience you should really enjoy. Good for families also - although this is not a big space restaurant. We made reservations - don't know if they are required though. Good views of the marina's... More

Very pleasant atmosphere, excellent menu, engaging staff. I wish I had found this place sooner. The staff really made you feel welcome. I can not say enough about the food.

I hadn’t been here in several years and was passing through on a friend’s boat so we gave it try. The best I can is that it’s okay but unremarkable. I had the cream of crab soup and the hamburger. The soup was okay but the burger was overcooked and because the bun was stale it fell apart and I... More

We recently started going back to this restaurant. What a pleasure. This time we took my mom. We had the rack of lamb - wonderful presentation, scallops on crab - delicious, and shrimp, chicken and sausage boil - a treat! Sitting outside is the only way to dine. The servers are excellent, the food is too. We will return often.

We attended dinner with another couple. The server was great with fast service. My meal was not good at all. The "crab? And potato" soup tasted like watery chicken broth with very little crab meat with some potato added in. My entree was a pepper-seared steak and was so grainy, it was almost not edible. Approximately 30 minutes following dinner,... More

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.

I didn't have a clue what to expect about this restaurant, except that it would have seafood and that i'd be happy! The food was delish and the service was great. I would def go back.

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.
