We were heading for the Governor's, but I always have trouble driving in South Portland, and missed it. We continued on and decided to stop at Dock's Seafood. It's a fish market/casual restaurant, with the menu on the wall. Our initial reaction was that it was pricey for lunch, based on the entrees posted on whiteboard at the entrance, but we found the main menu board, which seemed a little more reasonable, though not a bargain at $9.99 for a typical lunch. It's one of the those places that you order at the counter. It took quite awhile to receive our food, which is understandable, since it was overcooked. The french fries were dark brown and some were blackened, the scallops were way overcooked; yellow, and almost wooden. The oysters were cooked OK, and tender, but had a slight off-taste which I couldn't identify. I will say that the cole slaw was the best part of this dismal meal; it was fresh and tasty.
This appears to be a fairly popular restaurant, so I walked around to see what the other the diners were 'enjoying': one person had opted for the chowder and a salad, which looked good, but others were coping with the overdone french fries and fried seafood.
Maybe we hit them at a bad time (noon on Saturday?), but we won't be back. Sorry....
