“Great Expections Met”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We enjoyed the food, drink and view right by the lake. Sorry we didn't get there sooner during our weekend visit. Next time we will go straight here.

“Good Food Great View!!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Dockside has the best View of Sandusky Bay of any downtown place to eat! The Shrimp Tacos are some of the best I have ever had.. Good selection of quick easy meals.. Relaxing to just sit and enjoy the view with a cold beer in hand!

“Great cheap eats in Key Midwest!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Excellent, inexpensive food to enjoy in the best outdoor waterfront location in Sandusky! Try the perch or walleye tacos.

“The view is better than the café”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

Horrible value. Its an over-priced concession stand. they tell you if you are on the water, so you are paying more for the view. It's like buying a $15 cotton candy at the circus. The food is good but I could get the same food anywhere else for about one third of the price. And in the summer the based inks and the Sun is too hot to bear. People with boats I think it is trendy to eat here, but the truth is all of Sandusky is laughing at them for paying $15 for fish tacos

“The best way to view Sandusky Bay...”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Grab a cold drink and bite to eat while you watch over the bay. A different variety of food and drinks to select from and decent prices. Lunch time is busy, so you may not get a seat! Great views of CP at dusk.
