Great tuna tartar appetizer but braised lamb shank entre was disappointing. Way too salty and carrots overcooked. Service was superb - Sarah was very friendly and efficient which made overall experience worthwhile.

Nice experience but wish the food was better. The carpet (food quality) doesn't match the drapes (price).

Lunch was delicious as was the ambiance. Perfect lunch spot to celebrate a birthday. A very nice variety on the menu plus a lovely water view and very comfy seating. Everyone was very happy with their meal and drink selections. Had not been for at least 1 year as was disappointed on my last visit, but glad I gave it another try. Two of the guests were especially delighted too as they recently moved to Falmouth and had not yet been to Dockside Grill. And, our wait person was a definite bonus as she was extremely pleasant and provided excellent, top notch service. All of us would return again!

Particularly excellent food on this visit (we have been many times). Service was wonderful. Music was perfect. Sitting by the fireplace on a cold January night was wonderful. We loved the lamb, the medallions of beef, and the holiday dessert offerings.

We love coming to Dockside- good food, wonderful, friendly, efficient service, and the beauty of the surround; sunny dining rooms in winter, decks in summer.
It has been a favorite of ours for several years now!

The food was absolutely wonderful. Really terrific— we are telling everyone. The service was pretty slow, not sure why since it was not that busy. That was not terrible since we are all family and had a lot to catch up on, but definitely was slower than we would have liked or expected.

We always enjoy dining at the Dockside Grill. Its one of the few restaurants in Falmouth where you can have a (generally) toddler-free dining experience.

One of the few restaurants in the area where it's quiet enough to have a conversation. Tables are nicely spaced and atmosphere is cordial. Was able to make same-day reservation at preferred time on a Saturday.

Oysters were smaller and less briny than I prefer, but otherwise good. Steak was a little soft (processed with needles?) but tasty and cooked to my order. Flourless chocolate cake was RICH and delicious. Both white (sauvignon blanc) and red (pinot noir) wines were good.

The location, atmosphere and service were wonderful. Our server was so positive and engaging, and I really appreciated the attention she gave our table. Drinks were ok- not too well mixed and definitely light on alcohol. The appetizer (shrimp cocktail) tasted “chlorinated”- not super fresh or old but with an odd after taste. One of our guests’ meal was well undercooked. When a second piece of meat was prepared and returned to the table, it was served on the same plate with blood on it. Not appetizing and a poor representation of the kitchen quality. Because our server was so great and the environment is really nice without being pretentious, we would try the restaurant again but will definitely order something else.

Our experience at dockside was very good. It was Halloween, and very few people were there, so it was calm and quiet and pleasant inside. We reserve five stars for something extraordinary.
