We eat here pretty often for lunch. Really excellent service and a classic Maine seafood restaurant, but with a broader menu.

The Dockside Restaurant is located from steps from the Belfast Wharf with great views. The menu is very simple with great lunch items at affordable prices. With limited places to eat lunch in the lower downtown area, this is a good choice.

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.

Very good spot to eat lunch while in Belfast. Our lunches were very good and the staff very friendly. It is a local eatery that serves good for at a reasonable price. While not right on the water, you get a view of the harbor while directly in the middle of town. We arrived just after opening and service seemed... More

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
