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.

Always a good take no matter what time of year. Love the view. This time I had the haddock and my wife had the salmon. Delicious and served timely and hot. We’ll certainly be back again later this year.

Although our meal was very good we had to send the steak back. It was ordered medium and came rare. I ordered the kale salad and they were out of kale so replaced it with mixed greens.

Loved the re-opening and loved sitting in the upstairs dining
room! We had the best table for four at the windows, along with a comfortable window bench! The second floor dining room, when busy and bustling, makes dining at Dockside a bit more special of an occasion than the casual first floor space which is a bit more basic and no frills seating. Excellent food and drinks! Great spot overall for a fun Friday evening out with friends.

As always, Dockside was a treat. We are fond of the upstairs dining room and it’s view of the bay. Our server was friendly and able. Our steaks were perfectly grilled and seasoned. This is one of our favorite spots.

The location and view was spectacular. Our server was top notch and very sweet. Food was good overall. Onion soup was served lukewarm, without the typical bubbly cheese due to soup temp. Flavor was very good. Dinners all around were very good, in particular the carbonara. My steak was very well cooked to a perfect medium but over salted which negated the excellent cook. We will go back as this was our first dinner at Dockside. Perhaps an off night with seasoning so we want to give it another chance for sure.

This is such a LOVELY setting! Their menu is great--lots of choices. It will be even better when the weather gets warmer, and we can eat right next to the water. The service was fantastic!! And it's a classy but casual atmosphere. My only complaint was the amount of salt in the food--on the french fries specifically. Also, I didn't think the caesar salad dressing was that terrific. Don't think I'd get it again, and normally I love that dish in other restaurants. I will be trying Dockside in the future. Maybe it was just an off day.

Disappointed in food and in long wait time to get our meal. Haddock overdone, carbonara pasta not great and salmon dish too saucy. Potatoes were cold.
Probably won’t go for dinner again!

Date night with our granddaughter and her boyfriend ❤️ Everything was perfect! Views, service, and ambiance were wonderful and the food was scrumptious!! All 4 of us loved our meal. Salmon, haddock, mushroom risotto and pasta carbonara were our choices and plates were all cleaned!!
Topping the evening was a beautiful rainbow over the water. We will definitely return!!

To be fair, we went to The Dockside Grill on a Monday evening during a terrible wind storm and COVID so the restaurant was empty. However, the service was very slow (I think only one person was working) and our food took a really long time to arrive. The tuna tartare was mediocre but the Brussel sprouts were delicious. Other meals (scallops, chowder, Caesar salad) were good though. I’d like to go back on a summer evening when you can see the view and it’s busier.
