  1. Tried to go for drink @ Chickadee yesterday afternoon around 4. The so called maitre d . so uninformed about how to park where to park. Was completely in the dark. Well dressed lady whom I assume was hostess, never stepped in and tried to help ? We left . Dry Dock Cafe at least offers parking with a security guard always ready to assist. I the Chick needs to better inform its help as to the haves & have its on the area ! Just saying ! Place looked nice, but that was as far as I got!
