You can’t beat the location and view at Dockside Grill. Our waitress was very busy, but friendly and upbeat as she maneuvered waiting tables both inside and out. She took the time to make sure the wine I chose was just right, as well as answering any question we had before ordering our dinners. My husband was pleasantly surprised at how tasty his steak was and my fish dinner was excellent. Well worth it!

We celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary, had reservations and asked to be outside. Our young hostess sat us at the end of the dock- the perfect seat. Our meals were delicious, the waitstaff, Including the young man who brought us our meals and dessert were very attentive and kind - thank you for a beautiful evening 🙏♥️

Being busy parents of two young kids, we rarely have a night out. When we do, I look for new (to us) restaurants in the area, but we always seem to come back to Dockside Grill. This was a first visit since before the pandemic and the changes they have made make it better than ever. You just can't go wrong with this restaurant. We started with Oysters, and ordered Scallops and Salmon for our entrees, with summer squash/zucc and brussel sprouts as our sides. Amazing flavors all around. The view can't be beat and the moderate conversational noise is welcome after 18 month of quiet.
Would be a great place to grab a drink with friends or full dining. What a gem.

We sat on the dock with a beautiful water view and the waitstaff could not have been more courteous and professional. It’s a long haul out there for them, so if you dine here, please be kind and generous! The filets were cooked to perfection, the drinks tasty (try a drink with the fruit infused vodka) and the appetizers (crab cakes and mussels) delicious and perfectly sized.

We had a great visit to a long-time favorite spot in Maine. The food was excellent and service very accommodating. We really enjoyed sitting on the second level which is a bit quieter and had a great view of the harbor.

Have not been disappointed either time I’ve been here. As the restaurants name suggests, it is located dockside with beautiful views of the bay. They have a great patio with retractible awning that can be extended if it’s raining. While we didn’t end up needing this, it was good to know it was available. The food is absolutely delicious, if a little pricey for the portion size (two scallop sized crab cakes rang in at $18). While the menu is not overly large, it’s curated with a purpose and done very well.

Sat outside by the water and had the ahi tuna which was excellent. My only regret is not bringing a warmer sweater or jacket as it got cool as the sun was going down.

How we missed the ocean during the pandemic!! Our view from the window table on the second floor dining room was unbeatable. We could make out the island where our bring oysters were sourced. It's a just right menu for us and my in-laws- classic baked haddock with crumbs and a filet Oscar did them right. Cocktails for any palate.
