No tourists here as this is a locals spot in which everybody here DOES know everybody's name. No food to order, just drinks. If all you want to do is have a beer and talk RS, Patriots, Bruins, etc, this is the bar to do it.

My wife and I have been here several times and have never had any complaints on the service, food, or drinks. This is not a big bar, but very clean and a must stop.

What can you say about the Dock. It is your classic down town local joint. It has great drink specials and happy hour deals. It isn't very large and you probably would walk by it if you didn't know it was there. I would recommend this as a fun little spot for friends to get their drink on at a... More

Dock Fore is not a restaurant, but it is a great local safe place to stop for a drink. This is also a good place to watch sports in a casual setting and they have some of the best beer prices ($1.95 / pint) in Portland!

Dock Fore is yet another great place to stop in when you are visiting beautiful Portland, Maine! If you are a foody/drinky kinda person, then drop what you are doing and head to Portland soon!

Had an excellent beer in this establishment. Our bartender Danny was awesome. She was very friendly and helped us find a great spot for dinner. We learned a little about Portland and the people that reside here in this bar. We even had a taste of root beer schnapps. They have great happy hour prices that start at 3pm. This... More

Dock Fore is a neighborhood bar in a busy section of the old port. It is a great place to stop for a cocktail or beer, frequented by locals and staffed by servers who will quickly get your refreshment to you.

Dock Fore has been there since I remember. It gathers a varierty of clientele from local workers to lawyers and business people. Good sandwiches and pub fare at lunch, served quickly and withotu fanfare. Wait staff are very friendly. Parking may be the only problem on a busy Old Port day.
