Sir, Topsham Sat… Yeah, that was a stretch. Here’s my account of our brief visit to Sea Dog Brewery.

John didn’t want to go to Byrne’s super early, so the plan was to arrive fashionably late and stop somewhere for drinks. By drinks, I mean, soft drinks, which should not have been as difficult as it turned out to be.

Sea Dog Brewery is a Maine company with several locations and I’m told that otherwise it’s not a bad place to eat. But apparently, only ordering drinks rates you very low on the priority list for the waitresses who are serving you. It’s funny, because I thought that treating every paying customer like you appreciate their business is a good way to encourage future patronage, but who am I to criticize?

In all fairness, they did seat us pretty far from the counter.

Compare that to the service at Byrne’s Tavern and it’s a huge contrast. That lady had a ton of customers at one table alone and she still managed to outshine not one, not two, but the three separate waitstaff employees we interacted with at Sea Dog. And she had a considerable amount more to bring us, but I have no doubt that if someone only wanted to order a soda or a beer, she would have been just as attentive.
