Driving through Maine during the off season, we stopped in Belfast to find lunch. My father-in-law insisted that he wanted lobster bisque and we struggled to find any place to eat, much less one with lobster bisque! We got luck though - driving by Dockside...More

Ate with a friend and both of us had the Haddock Reuben with sweet potato fries and slaw. The service was a bit slow but the food was fabulous. Will be back again. The lobster is excellent, too.

Traditional eatery moderately priced for American food, plus lobster dishes. Quality uneven: the lobster stew too watery with few chunks of lobster. Mussel linguine: mussels were quite skinny... Overall, not really overpriced, but still too expensive for the quality.

Quick write up. Great service. Indoor or outdoor seating. I had a fish sandwich and it was more bun than fish. The remedy is not smaller buns! My friend had a fish burger the night before in Bangor that hung well off both ends of...More

Prompt, attentive service, great interior feel, reasonable prices, and the best burger I've had in months. The fries were also grade A. Very busy, but low noise levels made this a very pleasant dining experience. I would recommend this to the hungry tourist in Belfast.
