We hadn't been to Dockside in quite some time and decided to go for dinner on New Years Eve with another couple. All of our dinners were excellent and the service was good. We will certainly be returning.

Honestly I was not very happy going here for me second visit. the waiter refused to even look at my fiance when telling us about the specials, menu, etc.. also he was a bit slow and would not check in with us when checking the table he had to walk past us to get to. I was a waiter and that is wasted effort. The food was ok. I was very excited to have the Elk carpaccio. I guess the definition of carpaccio has changed as the elk was not 100% raw. As one of my favorite dishes I was flabbergasted it was cooked. Live an learn. I am sure Dockside does many things great. I just caught the ones that aren't.

We would suggest that the lighting illuminating the restaurant name be brighter. We passed the restaurant by several times before realizing that this dimly lit place was our destination. Inside the theme of too little light continued. This actually made reading the menu hard. Neither of the two people who we dealt with from start to finish were especially warm and welcoming. In thinking about it later we wondered if there was ageism going on, but later decided that maybe there was some sort of crisis that evening. For example, that they were short -handed on a very busy evening. Despite this we enjoyed ourselves, mainly because on this night we were celebrating out 50th wedding anniversary and whatever we do together we enjoy.
