Make sure you have plenty of time if you go to this restaurant.

The view from the back of the restaurant was nice. We waited a long time after ordering for our food to arrive. The mussels I ordered were definitely not good, they took them back without a problem. Everyone else in the group had their meal, so not to hold the group up I ordered clam chowder. It... read more

The place has old time charm, has a great seating area overlooking a beautiful pond. It is a little kitchy, which is great fun. The problem started with the restaurant losing the info on our prepaid dinner ( it was a special event with a prix fixe menu) The waitress asked if we wanted drinks but didn't provide anything listing...

Come for a drink. THAT'S IT! Rotten salad with my $22? Dollar lobster salad in avocado (about 1/4 cup if that much of lobster). Bad fish taco! All cabbage. Not bad raw oysters (nothing to cook there!) Good fries. Ok, that means, come for the fries, a beer and the view. THAT'S IT! Oh yeah, how about checking the bathroom... More

What a terrible disappointment to dine on the deck with a beautiful river setting and have really bad food. Do not order clams or shrimp cocktail. The mussels were a mixed bag of some good, some bad, with many beards left on and bits of shell. The shrimp cocktail - rip-off $17.00 -medium sized, room temperature, dried out. The only... More

It was too late when I read the previous reviews on Trip Advisor.... We went to The Dory. Never has there been a restaurant in more need of a Gordon Ramsey 'make over'. Great location and appalling in most other ways. The other reviews say it all. The owner informed us he has been in the business for 40 years.... More

You'll find fish, lobster rolls, burgers, standard salads and simple starters with a fresh water view. Come by car with limited parking or by boat to Picozzi's dock area. Avoid the hype, trendy others and leave with a happy belly!

Ate here with my wife on 7/14/15. The place looks quaint, nice river view but it's all downhill from there. Upon being seated I asked for 2 glasses of ice water. The waitress brought the water but it was warm and stuff was floating in the water. Requested 2 more and we were brought warm water again. We both ordered... More

Overall, just not recommended. I generally don't write negative reviews, but this one needs to be written. Overpriced for average to below food. After meal coffee had 1/4 teaspoon of coffee grains -no lie. Try somewhere else!!
