3.3/5  rDev -21.8%

We visited Dry Dock on a Thursday night, it was busy. I was happy we found a parking spot as close as we did. The reviews on beeradvocate and yelp were both so overly positive it was stupid of us (the wife and I) not to stop since our hotel was only a few blocks away.

Nearly every table was full when we arrived. We ending up finding a little table towards the back of the building near the shuffleboard table (sweet!). Once we sat down we could not tell if there was table service as there was so many people milling about. I went to the bar, nice selection of taps. Based on what I read online we ordered the Apricot Ale and Wee Heavy. I thought both were duds. The Wee Heavy was thin and weak and while the Apricot Ale had a great nose it did not deliver on the palate.

Since we were here we might as well have another beer before going to dinner. (A side note: As mentioned in many reviews, no food here. Just popcorn and a binder full of nearby restaurants that deliver.) I walked back to the bar and ordered two more beers, Vanilla Porter and Double IPA (which I read nothing but good things about). When I got back to our table my wife informed me she was chewed out by our “waitress” (who knew we had one) that she should be getting our beers. Hello! We had been there over 20 minutes already and nobody stopped by our table. This attitude was a bit off-putting. The Vanilla Porter was solid, very good. The Double IPA was a joke. It was “IPA-ish” at best.

So after two beers each we decided not to order food in and left for Wing Hut across the street. I failed to see what the hype was about this place. Obviously people like it here as it was busy as hell. Me… meh.
