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.
Our server was perfect and the food was absolutely delicious, as usual!
The upstairs dining was quiet and cozy with a terrific view. Service and food was wonderful.
it is my "go to" place to take family and friends. Nice views and good menu choices. Always enjoy my guests enjoying Dockside.
Excellent meal. Beautiful location. Wonderful as always.
Lucia rocks! Everything was great as always, we love coming here and always fun, great place, great ambiance, great food and the best service!
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.
I had the tuna and it was unbelievable. Our waitress Lucia was very attentive and sweet.
Cold food. Politely requested our tables mains get reheated, came back no better. Wait staff uncaring. Very disappointing.
Great food, great views, great service. A little bit loud
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.
Great as always! It’s great that we can sit down at the bar again, feeling a little bit like it used to be... Thanks Lucia!
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.
Had been by this are a number of times and finally decided to try it. And we were not disappointed. We were lucky to snag a table and got a nice location. The food and service were very good. Can't wain to go back in season. Highly recomend.
Great as always! This is our local hangout and we are so happy the Dockside is open again! ❤️❤️❤️
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.
We truly loved our experience, and will be back for many more brunches! The server was awesome and the food & cocktails were delish!
Great server, only misstep was a slightly overdone pork chop, but still a great meal.
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!
Greta food and location right on the dock. Service was also very good
We had another excellent experience all around. Never disappoints.
Great View, well spread out for Covid and awesome food. Strongly recommend as this is one of our favorites. Reservations suggested, but even the Happy Hour can give you a good experience.
What a beautiful hidden little gem. We will be back for sure!
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!!
We love the dockside! We’ll miss them while they close until April 2021. All the best!
New Years Eve dinner was as good as always! Great service, drinks and food. We never have a bad meal here!
Establishment did an awesome job with Covid-19 restrictions. Waitress, Samantha, was awesome.
Quality of food and service both exceptional.
The atmosphere was elegant, the food artfully presented and deliciously prepared. Our server Sam was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, friendly, professional and efficient. Highly recommended.
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.
Great food and service! And those donuts.....excellent!!!
Wouldn’t want to have been anywhere else for my birthday!! Loved having Jess
Wonderful and tasty food, and great service.
Great water view and brightly light by the panoramic windows. Service was quick and food come out in quite reasonable time. Lots of parking and they take reservations, so much preferred over Portland restaurants. We will keep returning.
Great evening! Very relaxed!
I don't know how we have never been to Dockside on our trips to Portland. It is a complete gem of a restaurant with gorgeous decks, wonderful food and fabulous service. It is definitely going to be one of our stops whenever we visit the Portland area.
We were thew only ones and the squash salad paired with a Burgundy pinot noir was delightful for lunch upstairs ands inside; COVDI19 safe.
Great meal, outstanding server
