Was a bit pricier than I was hoping for, but in the end, the quality certainly lived up to the prices. All the food we had was great. We ordered from the "lighter fare" but got pretty big portions. Very quaint local restaurant. Looks like...More

This is a neat cozy little place that is charmingly decorated. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Best of all the food was excellent. If in Bass Harbour again, I would definitely dine here again. The New England Clam Chowder is delicious!

We ate two dinners here, and enjoyed both. Staff was friendly and attentive, and between their regular menu and specials, found plenty of choices, and all were good. Yes, we probably ate too much, but wanted to try lots of things!

We checked out Cafe Dry Dock as a suggestion from where we were staying. We survived our 12 hour drive, and needed a good sit down dinner. When we got there, the hostess told us we had to go to the other dining room, which...More

We visited with our family of 15, and the space was able to accommodate everyone. The food and service were very good, and offered options that everyone enjoyed.

Enjoyed dinner here so much we went back for lunch the next day. Both meals very tasty and well presented, and the wait staff is efficient and friendly. Feasted on fish specials, burgers, and lobster rolls. Yum. Will definitely be back some day.
