Dock Fore is a neighborhood bar in a busy section of the old port. It is a great place to stop for a cocktail or beer, frequented by locals and staffed by servers who will quickly get your refreshment to you. Seating is limited so there may be times when it gets crowded but as a place to get a cold beer, it is more than adequate.

Dock Fore has been there since I remember. It gathers a varierty of clientele from local workers to lawyers and business people. Good sandwiches and pub fare at lunch, served quickly and withotu fanfare. Wait staff are very friendly. Parking may be the only problem on a busy Old Port day.

Walking around Portland this bar/pub was crowded. We went inside, we were the only tourists. Great beer prices on tap. Not a great variety but they have fresh seasonal beer. They do need to clean their chairs. We went back 2 nights in a row.

An actual Bar! everyone here has something in common.... they want to drinkkkkkkk at great prices. It's not a restaurant so stop complaining there is no food. I wouldn't complain in your coffee shop that there weren't any croissants. The beer specials are great! But I always go for the stiff drinks!

We went here for happy hour. $1.95 20 oz drafts. Need I say more? They do not serve food, so you should be aware of that before heading there. It's great for pre-dinner drinks at a great price. They have a great selection of beers, including lots of local brews (Shipyard, Geary's, etc.).
