We had nothing to do on this beautiful sunny Sunday and all day to do it so we jumped on the Harley and headed to Riverside Drive. I drove west along the water, through downtown Windsor, LaSalle and Amherstburg. While it was sad to see an old watering hole like Abar’s down and out it looked like something new is going on at the Sunnyside, in LaSalle.
After a spin through Colchester my gas gauge told me it was time to get gas. Cathryn said her tummy was growling and she was on empty too. We rode into Harrow in search of gas and grub. On the way to the gas station I noticed a new pub on the main drag, where the Pie Lady used to be. It’s called “DoCk 21 Fine Pub.”
We were looking for a light lunch, late in the afternoon – something to hold us over till dinner. DoCK 21 was the perfect pick.
The dining room was empty at that time of day, but we love to belly up to the bar and chat with the staff and locals – two of whom said the seafood chowder was good.
They weren’t exactly correct. It was awesome and not something out of a can…lots of seafood and not filled with potatoes. A perfect creamy texture. Cathryn had a the cranberry spring mix salad with chunks of chicken almost the size of golf balls. It was fresh and crisp with just the right amount of dressing.
The only thing that was disappointing was that I didn’t get to sample any of the inviting draft beers they had on tap. I strictly limit my alcohol consumption when riding on only two wheels.
A woman near us had the chicken quesadilla and gave us the thumbs up and two other patrons left with a doggy bag so I figured the food must have been plentiful and good enough to take it home. We give DoCK 21 a 4 out of 5 stars on their Facebook page.
