The restaurant has nice white table cloths. The food was very good. The menu is small, but all the items sounded good. The service was great. We ask for a change to one of our dinner and they had no problem with the changes.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, great service, good food... the only think I wished, since they offer gluten-free and dairy-free designations is that they would go the extra step and offer gluten-free wraps and/or bread for the sandwiches.

We had dinner tonight at this very nice restaurant with a broad enough menu and very good food. However, maybe we are old fashioned, but it seemed odd that most every time, the men were served before the women. Also, isn't it proper to clear...More

I have eaten dinner at Butch's Dry Dock the past two nights. Great restaurant i.e. relatively small and charming. I like the fact that the restaurant and the bar area are on opposite ends of the restaurant. The food is incredible e.g. the kale salad,...More

Hello, We do have many gluten free options on our menu. We cater to people with Celiac disease often, so, if you are looking for a restaurant with those types of options we are the right place!

Good Afternoon Richard, Yes, we can absolutely accommodate your reservation in our pub area. Did you have a preference of a high top table or low top?
