Gluten Free Dining at the Old Dock Restaurant
New for 2013 is a gluten-free menu including baked chicken wings and burgers, grilled chicken breasts and seafood salad served on gluten-free buns. In response to a growing demand for gluten-free dining options, The Old Dock Restaurant is offering complete “GF” lunch and dinner menus.
2013 Dinner Menu Additions
The 2013 Old Dock menu includes several enticing additions including these mouth-watering dinner entrees.
- Seafood Sauté (fresh scallops, shrimp, crab meat and clams in garlic wine butter sauce, served over choice of rice or linguine.)
- Fresh Broiled Scrod (fresh scrod broiled with Danish buttered crumbs on top)
- Chicken Parmesan (hand breaded pan fried chicken breast topped with marinara and mozzarella cheese, baked and served over pasta)
Filet mignon is back on the menu, and the fresh bread at your table during dinner will be homemade baguettes!
Pasta Night, Open Mic & Free Wi-Fi
Another exciting addition this summer is complementary wi-fi service at The Old Dock Restaurant. Throughout the restaurant and on the deck, you can access the internet on your smart phone, tablet or laptop with free wireless internet. Just check with your server for login details.
The popular Friday night prime rib and fresh seafood specials have inspired a Wednesday night “Make Your Own Pasta” menu. The full, normal menu will also be available, but if you want a custom-built pasta dinner, you can place your order with the dedicated chef who’ll be able to combine pasta, sauces, meat and veggies to your individual preference while you watch.
Another popular event, Thursday night open mic will continue this summer. Double check on timing, but I was informed that the loose plan is for open mic night to run from 7:00 to 9:00 PM weekly. All musicians and music lovers are welcome!
