The Dock Restaurant – New Glasgow, NS

The Dock Restaurant New Glasgow

Located in downtown New Glasgow, The Dock is a popular local restaurant and bar perfect for a not-too-formal, not-too-fancy family get together. I say popular based on an educated guess – it is not always easy to get a table at peak meal times, and even in the lower hours the place is rarely empty.

On our most recent trip, we tried out the chowder with some summer refreshments – Garrison nut brown for him and the house white for me. It was my first time at The Dock since I learned I couldn’t eat Gluten, and I was a bit disappointed with the lack of options, despite our waitress’s superb effort to find something I could eat. In the end, I settled for just the wine.

(UPDATE: They have since added a few GF options!)

While I couldn’t have the chowder, it received top reviews from my counterpart. It was rich and creamy with generous amounts of seafood, and the nut brown was a perfect complement. A great choice for a cool summer day like we had on Saturday.
