While visiting in town, we stumbled across English Dockside while looking for a mid-afternoon late lunch. There were only a couple of other tables with diners. The menu stated that the food would take more time because of the way it was prepared, but it...More

Worse sevice ever! It took 45 minutes just to get a drink. The salad was not kept on ice and was completely wilted. I will never go back. It's a shame as the atmosphere was very nice.
