Steak tips very good. Waitstaff is a bit spicy. If you can't find something on the menu to appeal to you there is something wrong with you.

This place has a lot of room and has a great bar. The wait staff has always been friendly and can't do enough for you. The food is ok, but the wings are really good. The pizza isn't too bad either.

I visited this restaurant with a buddy after a round of golf. We both ordered two pizzas each, and we both brought our leftovers home to our families, so the wives didn't have to cook. The restaurant is very spacious, and very reasonable. Quite a few families seem to visit this family restaurant.

Have eaten at Dockside many time for lunch, and had heard they had a function room. Attended a post elopement celebration and the room worked well for the group of about 40 people. Had appetizers, salad and a buffet with 4 hot dishes for self serve. The restaurant did a great job, and I believe the pricing was very reasonable.

Beautiful views - even on cold, rainy day. Great variety. Everyone enjoyed their choice. The crab cakes were especially good. Other great choices included the lobster roll, clam chowder, and lobster bisque.

Frequent this establishment often for a laid back casual night of dining or just a quick bite to eat. The service is always friendly. Staff makes it a point to remember your name and what you like. There are always reasonably priced specials from the kitchen and at the bar. Great place for sports fans to catch local teams on... More

We celebrated our father's 90th birthday. Shannon was extremely helpful in ordering our menu. We had Samantha as our waitress and she did a great job keeping up with bar orders as well as making sure the food was out in time. It was the perfect venue for our family's party.
