We two arrived at 6 PM on a Sunday. The stated hours are 11am till 7 pm. There were tables available. We were told we could not be seated by an unfriendly staffer because "the kitchen was backed up and the computer was down." This is not a huge establishment and verbal or written order instructions can be addressed to... More

Very good fish options including shellfish. Several specials everyday. Soups are very good. Can choose a fish and a way to have it prepared. Down to Earth servers treat you like family.....although the older servers (women) act like it is a chore to be working. SMILE like the younger servers - please. Glad to have this restaurant - which is... More

My husband and I have been to Dockside regularly-at least twice a month for years- and have always had fish/seafood cooked just right. We've gone as a couple, with friends, and even brought our 3 y/o grandson for dinner. The service is personal, with Jeff the owner greeting us by name. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We've been to Dockside many times. Love it every time! An unassuming find, it is in a strip mall setting, which put us off at first. Glad we tried it. Fabulous food, great Manager/owner who circulates. I love the ahi tuna bites. The dipping sauce is so good, my husband asks for more to use on his shrimp burger. Salmon... More

My husband and I went to the Dockside for lunch today for the first time. The place is simple but clean inside, but as it was such a nice day, we chose to sit outside on the patio. There were only 2 tables with umbrellas and we were lucky to get one. The menu looked great- although my husband thought... More

This place is adorable. Don't let the store front fool you. They have the freshest most delicious fish anywhere. The specials are creative and out of this world. Staff always helpful and smiling. Don't miss it!

My daughter loves Lobster and heard of a place in Hunterdon County that serves multiple offerings of the fish on Thursday during the summer. The family found the place somewhat hidden in a huge Walmart complex on Rte 31. It is a small place but very bright and welcoming. The server was informed and polite, the food was fresh and... More

We've been here a few times and the seafood was great every time. Very fresh and flavorful. The service is excellent. If you are looking for some fresh seafood on the days you are not at the Jersey shore, this is the place.
