Went there for dinner with wife and daughter. The view is great right on the water. The place was busy, but not so busy the services was as slow as it was.

Wife had tuna (was under cooked). Daughter had salmon and I scallops.

Had seafood chowder (very good) and calamari.

Overall dinner was good, but did not meet the price. Dinner for 3, with 2 cups of chowder and the appetizer was $136.00 Not including the tip and we only had water to drink. The food was good, but better seafood places out there for the price.

This is a tough one to rate - the view is really to die for - in the summer they open the lower level and it is open air dining. It really does not get much better than that lower level for a drink. The food is ok-decent. Sort of depends on what you order. I'd say stick to the basics. Give it a try, just for the ambiance alone. Your meal won't be bad, it just won't be equivalent to food you can get in Portland.

We came here with a large party of 16, and they were accommodating, setting up a large table. The view was beautiful, and the dining room was open to the outside. It was a prefect spot to show off Maine in the summer time. The food was excellent. Best fish and chips I've had in a while, fish tacos and burgers were a hit, too. This is our new go-to spot when folks visit and we want to have seafood and be by the water.

This was one of 2 highlights from our 3 day visit to Portland. Our Innkeeper suggested Falmouth as an area to explore. We googled and discovered this place, liked the reviews and decided to check it out. Wow, talk about fantastic seafood and views. We rode out a storm over the water and hung at the bar until the sun came back out. Cocktails were good, seafood was VERY good (oysters, crab & lobster rolls). The view of both the water and boats being assembled was entertaining. Another good feel for the Maine coastal life. Our waitress was outstanding and her suggestion for breakfast the next morning was fantastic. Got to love the local recommendations!

Dockside Grill seems to be a local family favorite but it warmly welcomed us as hungry tourists traveling with a toddler. The service was outstanding and the food was solidly great. This is not intended to be fine cuisine - it's family food finely prepared. Be prepared for a lively crowd - Dockside Grill is not large but is clearly popular - you can't expect a quiet evening here among many happy diners but you can expect a great meal and equally great service-
