Recently had dinner at Dockside. One of the specials was lobster stuffed sole. The sole was overcooked to be almost mushy, The lobster was nearly absent. The lobster sauce should have been called cream sauce because it had little taste of lobster. Did the chef...More

My 80 year old mother asked for roasted sweet potatoes with her meal and she was told she can only have them with salmon not with anything else-- because they don't have enough for all meals. Really??More

We are very happy you selected the Dockside for your mother's special dinner. I am afraid your server didn't explain the situation correctly. The Chef would have gladly substituted sweet potatoes for your mother's meal had we not had a great many people order the...More

The approach to the Dockside Restaurant is all part of the Dockside’s charm. You are treated to views of the York River and the grand “summer cottages” as you turn onto Harris Island Road to reach Dockside Restaurant. The view is quintessential Maine, people hustling up and down the docks, gleaming yachts and colorful lobster boats in front of a rock and pine-tree shore. Dockside’s recent renovation is perfect, warm and comfortable. Hardwood floors, European style lighting floor to ceiling window and a new mahogany bar with an adjoining outdoor cocktail deck. During warm months seating is available on our harbor view screen porch. The atmosphere is casual but the food is serious. Chef Dennis la Planet has been recognized as a “chef’s chef”. North Atlantic seafood prepared with a northern Italian influence and aged steaks are just the start. Lunch features organic salads, creative sandwiches and traditional favorites; fish and chips, chowders and fried clams too.
