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..

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.

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

We ate breakfast here on a nice sunny Sunday morning. We ate outside over looking the water. The food and atmosphere were terrific. It took us 1 hour to get our food. It was a busy morning. But, one hour is too much and we wouldn't go back if was another busy morning.

This used to be THE place for Sunday brunch in Southern MD. No more. Had not eaten here in a bout two years and was greatly disappointed in everything but the view, which is still lovely. I usually have gotten eggs Benedict and I knew as soon as it came that there had been a big change. The muffin was... More
