After leaving corporate life in 2015, Don Mastronardi and wife Lisa took ownership of Dry Dock Bar & Grille, a neighborhood restaurant established in 1974 and located on Main Street in Norwalk, CT. Specializing in top-notch American food, Don and Lisa have been faithful to bringing unique offerings to the area. After two years with Dry Dock Bar & Grille, the duo expanded and took over management of the Silvermine Golf Club’s restaurant – Dry Dock @ Silvermine, and then most recently opened Dry Dock’s Smokin’ Aces at Oak Hills Park.
Delicious food in a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere, The Dry Dock and Smokin’ Aces offer lunch and dinner, weekly specials, happy hour deals, and an amazing Sunday brunch. In addition, Smokin’ Aces features live music, trivia nights, karaoke nights, comedy evenings and corn hole tournaments. All of Dry Dock’s locations are also available for private events.
In addition to providing good food and a place to gather, the Mastronardi’s have also given back to the community through donations to many local organizations and schools. All Dry Dock locations also offer discounts on food and drinks to first responders who visit in uniform (police officers, firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics).
Don shares, “My goal has always been to build a company from scratch. I never thought that within six years I would have three restaurants and be able to do what I enjoy. I am a people person, so I love the people interaction and all the friendships I’ve built over these years. I consider my staff and customers like family, and I hope people feel at home when they come to the restaurants.”
Thank you for your interest in The Dry Dock, Dry Dock’s Smokin’ Aces, and Dry Dock at Silvermine. We look forward to continuing to serve the community and hope you visit us soon.
