Nestled right next to the Gladstone Marina and East Shores Parklands, The Dock at East Shores is a one-of-a-kind award winning waterfront destination. Believing that seasonality is an important basis for menu production, and one of the most significant ingredients in achieving a flavoursome, balance and premium quality menu.

With spectacular views, delectable food and an extensive array of drinks, The Dock has the best beer garden in Gladstone and is ideal for any time of the day. Perfect for breakfast meetings right through to afternoon drinks, or dinner with cocktails and wide selection of speciality beer and wines. This Gladstone favourite offers plenty of under cover outdoor seating with misting fans in summer and the unique opportunity to sit by the water and socialise with friends.

The Dock is a testament to the belief that food can be a wondrous, unforgettable experience and with our exceptional views, there's no place you'd rather be.

    Reservation made for the 25th April at 6pm. Reservation confirmed. Reservation confirmed by open table email again on the 24th. Received a phone call at 11am on the 25th from the restaurant that they will close at 2pm and are not open in the evening. Holiday plans ruined. Great management!!!!!!!!!NOT.

    Great service, seated on the upper deck, beautiful area but was ruined a little by swarms of mosquitos, it really is the time of year but mosquito coils would have helped a little. Value for money, large main meals and were cooked to perfection!

    Sadly I had cold chicken on a soggy salad. Too many soggy probably out of date tomatoes. I know this dish and have had it beautifully presented previously. The flavour was still there.

    We ordered a entree as well as a main meal on the new disk at the table. Our main course came before the entree and when we asked the leader in charge she Said it’s not net fault. We surely didn’t want to blame anyone we just wanted to bring to your attention that the table goody has some thing to sort out.

    We enjoyed our lunch-time visit, the outdoor seating was pleasant and comfortable, the background music was quiet which was greatly appreciated, we did not notice any traffic noise, the food was good, and we were treated to excellent service by the young man who took our orders and brought our meals. Also, the venue and tables were clean.

    For sure you need to get it right. Went there for dinner tonight for valentines. So disappointed, new way of service were you order every thing on smart phone when you sit down. Never been to a restaurant that did this and hey modern technology but when we asked a waitress to show us how to order wasn’t told when you order the entree and mains she didn’t say it all comes out at same time. Which when you eat entree mains go cold. First and last time there. Joe

    Service was really bad and so was the food. Lovely cocktails and so was the sweet potato wedges but that's about the only good thing. The tables where not wiped down so we need up with sticky substance on our arms. The nachos with pulled beef had one big lump of meat in the middle and no flavour. Asked for a plate to share some starters, the waitress acknowledge the request then never returned. Would not recommend the place based on this experience unless your just after a drink.

    The food was average, not amazing. My fish was over cooked. The kids meals were a joke, tiny and suitable for 3year olds and under. The staff were friendly, but seemed unsure of everything. Overall, unimpressive.

    Would have loved to leave a good review but we had a terrible experience. Admittedly it was NY Day and I will give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt that maybe they were understaffed or unexpectedly busy. However, we went for breakfast and were still waiting an hour after ordering our meals. Eventually after my husband asked when our meals would be served, we were brought food which had been sitting in the serving area for at least 15 minutes (we had been seated nearby and watching). It was freezing cold and when we informed the server that we wouldn’t be eating it, he asked ‘do you want me to warm it up?’ We declines and asked for a refund. There was no apology and although we did drink our beverages, which were provided when we sat down, the refund didn’t include the cost of the drinks which I thought would be a nice gesture considering we were there for over an hour without eating. While we were waiting for our refund, 3 other tables came to the register asking for a refund. Disappointing given that the restaurant is in a prime position in Gladstone and would be an enjoyable spot to eat at IF the food/drinks were served in a timely manner.

    Took our visitors out New Years Eve. We had a very enjoyable, relaxed, casual dining experience on the deck. We ordered the Red Emperor and pork belly mains - they both got a big ✅! The wait staff and bar staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. Finished off our meals with gelato for dessert. Beaut evening!

    Great place to chill with a couple drinks next to the marina and East shores precinct. Unfortunately not much variety in main/dinner options and the meals we had were oily and bland. Still worth the visit if you are after drinks or desert with a nice outlook.

    We booked for an outside table as we don't like to sit in the noisey placed when we are eating. On arrival I noticed they had us written down on a table for inside. When we pointed it out we were told they just didn't have any tables for us even though we booked. We were seated in the inside area. Every table was full and our table was directly under a speaker that was blaring loud music. We were so uncomfortable that we got up to leave and as we were spotted a outside table that someone had just left. We asked if we could just have that table instead. A lady took the plates away for us but left all the dirty glasses and did not return to get them or wipe the table. We sat waiting for 10 minutes before finally saying something and getting them to come clear the table properly. At this stage we were pretty disappointed and just hoping that the food made up for it. We could see that the staff were run off their feet but it was still a frustrating situation. I ordered one cocktail and was very disappointed by it, same with the milkshake. Thankfully the food was lovely and made up for everything a little so atleast one part of our night was enjoyable.

    I had looked at the menu online as I always do, and decided there were a few things that interested me, but when we got there the menu had changed, and I wasn't able to have what I had hoped, so it was a disappointing experience. I ended up with meat and potatoes - not good

    Omni meals were good but the vegan board was quite exxy - which is fine when it’s a good size meal. But when the board came out with one single mushroom? Two twenty cent Sized hash browns and the avo add on was $4! Ridiculous.
