We met our friends there before heading out on the lake. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. It is nice to have a place where you can dock your boat and enjoy some food.

If you are looking for a place to eat excellent food while sitting by a beautiful lake, visit Dockside. The perch sandwich, fish tacos, and burgers are excellent. Substitute the onion rings for a treat. Service was fast and friendly. Glad we found this place.

Had a bacon cheeseburger and onion rings which were fantastic. Prices aren't bad and you can sit and eat your food while looking at the lake.
