We enjoyed the food, decor & service at the Dockside. Food was good, the portions satisfactory. Unique chips were great as well as the fries. Coleslaw was also very good.

Casual dining right on the Fox River. It is accessible by boat with plenty of place to dock and eat outside. Sunday in the off season is Bloody Mary day. Very good burgers and sandwiches.

We decided to go somewhere for a cold beer and chose this place due to being able to sit on the back patio and watch boats move in and out. Fun atmosphere! Food was good also. It was breezy, but great view and sunny day!

We have nothing really to complain about or brag about. We went online. A Tuesday wanting to dine by the water. Service was fine. Fish tacos are fried. Chicken bruchetta was good.

We came out to the restaurant today as we wanted to eat somewhere on the water and we were very happy with our service. It was a very cute place with music right outside while we ate. Fun place!

Pull in by boat or auto and sit a spell. Food is excellent with lots to choose from. Sit outside and enjoy the breeze from the Fox River while having a cocktail with dinner or lunch. Live music and drink specials during happy hour. Very casual.

Rainy day so changed plans and went to Dockside. We usually dock the boat and have lunch outside, but instead drove in. We sat at the inside bar, had a drink and we ordered the Chips and Dip.
