Love to eat outside on the sunny deck with views of the harbor! Great drinks, beer, delicious onion rings and fries! Lobster rolls, fried shrimp, burgers and salads - they have anything you might be in the mood for. Nice spot to sit and relax!

The fried clams with bellies were excellent, and the fries and coleslaw which were included, fine tasting as well. There were "bottomless" cups of coffee, and the service was friendly and attentive.

We happened upon this restaurant, which looks like a basic diner type of place a year ago and enjoyed, so when headed toward Bar Harbor two weeks ago, made it a point to stop again. Found food and service to be even better ... so much so that when headed back south we stopped again for another great lunch!

Over the years, we have enjoyed the quality of the food and service at the Dockside. On our annual visits to Belfast, we always stop there.My wife loves the blackened salmon as well as many other seafood dishes. The portions are never small. Everything I have eaten there has been consistently satisfying.

The Dockside has some fine cuisine that includes lobster and other fresh seafood. There is a good view of the harbor from the deck and you'll find the service excellent and the prices very reasonable. I recommend both the Blackened Salmon and Haddock

Great view of the harbor and the atmosphere inside is great! You know the food is good when there's a packed house. Their chowder is fantastic. I was pleasantly surprised with their beer and wine selection

First of all, the restaurant was very accomadating to us as we arrived shortly before closing time, but they caringly took us in and we had a delicious meal that was cooked to perfection.. Drinks were awesome too and they did not seem in a rush to get us out so they could close. Thank you Dockside.

I love dockside. My family goes in here a lot when we eat out. And I can't really tell you much about the menu, because I get the same thing every time I eat here. The fried haddock dinner with a side salad. The garlic dill dressing is so good. The staff is great, and if it is a nice... More
