We reserved a table for my husband’s birthday. When we arrived, we were seated at a lovely table by the window with a simple handwritten Happy Birthday card. This small touch was so thoughtful and made an immediate positive first impression on all of us and set the tone for the evening. Our server was the perfect mix of attentive but not overly so while we enjoyed our drinks and caught up with each other. The menu had something delicious and appealing for all of us, and the birthday guys dessert was on the house and was brought out with a candle. Red Snapper was divine! We will be back for lunch, brunch or dinner very soon.

My daughter was here visiting from NYC where she is a frequent visitor to all the restaurants they have to offer. They don’t get grouper there so I knew she had to go to my favorite to have the grouper bites. She had them for an appetizer and an entree and exclaimed that “ this is the best thing I have had in MY LIFE!! Need I say more? We love Dry Dock for the service, the atmosphere and most of all the food!

About the restaurant
Relax and enjoy yourself as you savor some of the tastiest dishes the Caribbean has to offer. Growing up as a child in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, I came to love the local cuisine and the abundance of fresh seafood on the island. Love of the Caribbean and its food have helped make this restaurant a reality. My wonderful wife, Laurie, has a passion for Southern cooking and you will find a splendid southern twist in the menu, such as the Kentucky Hot Brown, Corn Pudding and Fried Green Tomatoes.

All our food is made fresh daily. The herbs used in our delicious dishes are grown in our garden here at the restaurant. We invite you to tour the garden and allow your taste buds to be teased by the scent of parsley, basil and rosemary and walk our boardwalk to see what’s jumping.

Thank you for visiting the Farlow’s on the Water website. We hope you choose to visit our restaurant soon.
