I thought this place was okay. It's located in a strip mall. Service was slow but there was only one waitress so not her fault. Had the haddock which was fine not outstanding.

With a name like "Dockside," I was hoping for some seafood--maybe a crab or lobster roll. No such luck. Had the Buffalo chicken dip and iced teas instead, which were fine, it not what we were looking for. Service was friendly.

Dockside serves good food, has a varied menu, friendly staff and quick service. Great lunch. Burgers, sandwiches appetizers and more. Have not had a drink during the day, but bar looks good too.

Extensive menu should suit all tastes - my wife has a large moist portion of grilled salmon with vegetables while I foolishly ordered two starters - a bowl of chilli and three "sliders" (supposedly miniature hamburgers), which were so generous that I could only manage...More

If you are hungry and want not to be, you will find average food at average prices here. But less than a restaurant as such, this seemed to me a place where the locals come to meet, drink, play and maybe grab some grub. Nothing...More

Location is in a shopping center area. The atmosphere of the place leaves a lot to be desired. I love pub feel of a restaurant of this type. It did not have that. Lighting was bright and place felt run down. Food was a bit...More
