My wife and I live in Sequim. We had been looking forward to eating here, and heard they had a great chef. I had cocanut prawns expecting something really good. Unfortunately, they were awful, completely different than any other recipe I've tasted with that name. The food was expensive. I hope others have a better experience than we did. I don't feel like returning for another try.

“Our favorite restaurant in Clallam County”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2007

We have lived in Sequim for 10 years, and the Dockside Grill is by far the best restaurant in the area. The menu selection is excellent, and the daily specials are truly Special.

“Best New Restaurant in Sequim!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2007

Our party of 4 tried the new Dockside Grill recently at the John Wayne Marina in Sequim. We made reservations and it's a good thing we did! The place was packed. We were seated near a window with a view of the marina and watched the sunset and drooled over the large boats.

Having lived in Sequim now for about a year, we are always looking for good restaurants and we were not disappointed here! The space has been beautifully transformed from the dull, diner style of the old restaurant with warm colors and decorations depicting the area.

We all had a different entree and all 4 were delicious! The food was reasonably priced, plentiful with a great presentation. I had a halibut special which was topped with fresh crab, another had crab cakes which came with fresh vegetables and penne pasta. The other two dishes were pasta and both said to be very good. Most dinners come with a choice of one of 5 sides, along with a salad or soup!

My only complaint was the wait staff. A waitress came right over to our table when we were seated, but we needed a couple more minutes to decide on beverages. She never returned and after a good 15-20 min. another waitress showed up (she was very good however). It would have been nice if someone had explained that we would be helped shortly. Also, the "bus-girl" needs some training. She threw the napkins down on the table after removing them from the glasses, kept removing items from our table, one at a time, disrupting our conversations through the evening and we finally had to ask her to wait until we'd left!

Overall, it was a very pleasant dining experience and we can't wait to go back. If you are visiting the area and want a nice restaurant with excellent food, check out this new restaurant!
