Dockside Grill Ratings and Reviews
The price you pay is a direct reflection of the service you receive. With a beautiful view and welcoming staff, Dockside Grill is all around a "Fine Dining" restaurant. I recommend this beautiful restaurant not just for the quality of their food, but for the amazing staff and management. You will not be disappointed.
We enjoyed a splendid mid-winter lunch at the Dockside Grill. The menu was imaginative but also Maine. The food was very good, attractively presented and promptly served. The service was terrific, with our wait person going more than the extra mile to ensure that the one-year-old with us had oyster crackers to nibble before his grilled cheese arrived and fresh fruit to enjoy as the adults enjoyed a leisurely conversation after lunch. The location is, of course, unbeatable.
My wife and I were looking forward to dining at Dockside for New Year’s Eve but were somewhat disappointed in our experience. The ambiance was nice , our waitress was very friendly and likeable. Unfortunately though, service was very slow. We each ordered the 8oz filet with scallop potatoes. I ordered mine medium, my wife ordered medium-well. Both steaks were excellent cuts of meat, but were served cooked medium rare. Our potatoes were flavorful, but also very much undercooked. If not for the fact we had waited such a long time for our meal we would have requested additional cooking, but instead kept quiet and ate most of our dinner. For the price of dining at Dockside, it’s unfortunate the chef wasn’t attentive enough to prepare our meal as requested.
To my surprise we were able to get a reservation for a Friday at last moment and my wife and I were looking forward to dinner at the Dockside because we had not been before. We arrived and were seated promptly. That's when things slowed way down, not a bad thing because we do not like being rushed, but it did take time between visits from the wait staff. We were there for about 20 minutes before a drink order was taken, 20 minutes before being served them and we were just over the 1 hour mark before we were asked for our food order. We ordered the brie appetizer which came after about a half hour with the pastry being charred black on 70%, not golden brown. Too bad, the brie and berry compote was good but the pastry not so much. My hanger steak was cooked exactly how I like it but the Brussels spouts were completely charred/burned beyond recognition or flavor. My wife's haddock was very bland and the risotto was like paste. Maybe they had an off night, we will see if we go back.
Absolutely delicious, I must eat gluten free and This is a great place for that. I had a luxurious number of options to choose from - and that is a rare thing! Lovely ambiance this evening - I arrived after the rush 😊 so it was very quiet. Fantastic service, I chose to sit at the bar and it was a very good choice, great service. I'll be back, the patio/downstairs opens tomorrow!
Extremely loud due to large party in same area. Waited over an hour for meal after ordering. Was told it was due to large party. Reservations were made so they should have been prepared. When entre arrived it was raw in center. Sent it back & got back another entre that was not much better after asking for cooked through. Waitress was pleasant and as helpful as she could be. We will not return.
I really wish we could give 1/2 star ratings as this would have been 4 1/2 stars, everything was nearly 5 stars, the only complaint or negative would have need unusually long wait for nearly everything but the waitress was very apologetic and the view, location, ambience and food quality made up for it. Also my girlfriend commented several times that she liked this restaurant 😃
All of our plates were consistently good. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the view outstanding. Our waitress was very friendly and provided excellent service. We can't wait to make this restaurant a favorite for lunch, brunch and dinner for all of these reasons and the menu choices.
The decor is very nice. Comfortable seating. Nice bar area. It was very busy on Sunday so the service was slow. I ended up getting my food to go. It was kinda noisy. I have been there in the evening and it is much nicer in my opinion. Quieter, no kids. The live entertainment is good.
I highly recommend it. I will become a regular.
