Dropped by around noon on a Tuesday. Many establishments in this area are closed for much of January as this is the dead part of tourist season. So we were happy to find Dockside Cafe open.
It sits dockside and serves visiting boaters. The menu included many luncheon specials for less than $6, but none of these involved seafood. So we ordered scallop plates ($14 per person). They were served just a few minutes later, but were disappointing. The scallops were the small, slighly larger than green pea, variety. They had been grilled nicely. The sides included onion rings and cucumber salad. A single Negra Modello beer brought the tab to $34 for a very light lunch.
The waitress, Lenina, was very attentive. She made sure our food was cooked as ordered and was always available if we needed something more. When the check was presented it came with a questionaire about the meal. And the owner queried us as we departed to see if everything was to our satisfaction. They appear to be interested in providing a good experience. The receipt even contains a request that the diner enter a review on Tripadvisor.
The cafe stocks several imported and local beers.
A turnoff: the menu explains that because of contaminated local seawaters, oysters and shellfish are not caught locally. When my wife requested a glass of water, she was brought bottled water with the same explanation - the water supply is contaminated!
Bottom line, an ok place. Limited and pricey menu. Good service. Stick with the daily specials (mostly sandwhiches).
