    The location was amazing and added to the experience! I dined outside and I LOVED it, it was the perfect evening weather-wise to sit outside and I’m glad I did.

    Love Dockside - Came when it first opened and have tried to visit it on every trip to New England. Great craft beer made in-house as well as guest pours and a versatile food menu. The seating is extensive outside with water views, umbrellas, and a breeze. Enjoy!

    We used to love Dockside, but our last visit was awful. Our son's pizza came out before the calamari appetizer. They forgot to bring my husband his clam chowder. After we reminded our waiter it was served cold with stale oyster crackers. The calamari was disgusting. It was in a greasy bowl with just grisly tentacles. Our waiter acknowledged that it was not good and brought us a new calamari appetizer but never took away the original one until we asked. I ordered a red wine and it was cold. Isn't red wine supposed to be served at room temperature? My brussel sprout salad was never served even after reminding the waiter twice. It's a good thing because my fork was dirty and had crusty rice stuck on it. Everyone at the table had finished their meals and my salad still wasn't served. We decided to get our check, pay, and leave. We were very disappointed and won't ever go back.

    If you want to sit outside, make sure you make a reservation ahead of time and specify which area you’d like to sit in. Also don’t come here hungry- you’ll be waiting a while before your foods served. The ambience is nice , food is ok. Definitely worth visiting but if you’re in a rush then save the visit for a different day.

    Beautiful setting, great selection of beer and drinks as a whole. Food is wonderful, especially considering how busy it gets. Servers have their work cut out for them and are still attentive. Overall a great place.
