The Salty Dog Restaurant and Pub is located at 166 Narragansett Street in Gorham, Maine. One side of the building is the home of a full bar and the kitchen,
while on the other side of the building is the dining room with a dozen or so tables covered with black table cloths and surrounded by red leather chairs. The colors work well against the neutral painted walls.
When we stopped for an early dinner, the bar was pretty busy, but there were only two other tables occupied in the dining area. One dollar beers were the special that night, which explained the busy bar!
A wide selection of pub foods with the chef's twist were available. Appetizers included waffle fries topped with beef and chipotle sauce, or grilled cheese, bacon, and tomato triangles with dipping sauce.
Mr. Eva wanted a club sandwich on wheat bread with ham, tomato, lettuce and bacon, served with what appeared to be seasoned fresh-cut fries and a pickle wedge.
I decided to be a little more daring and try the Honky Tonk Burger. This turned out to be a generous, well-cooked hamburger patty smothered with a mess of melted Swiss cheese topped with two beer-battered onion rings, a dollop of chipotle mayo and a tangy BBQ sauce on a better-than-average bun. It was amazing. The cheese was runny and delicious, and I managed to down the sandwich somehow without wearing home! It, too, was accompanied by the yummy seasoned fresh-cut fries and a crispy pickle wedge.
We happened on this place by accident; I had never seen or heard of it, but we enjoyed our meal and will likely visit again!
