Well worth stopping by, the service was great with Steve and Carl on the bar. They were very attentive and assisted us in ordering a great meal. Could not believe our bill, it was so reasonable with all we eat and drank. We will be back sooner than later, to try some of their promotions.

I held my cheerleading banquet here and everything was perfect. The restaurant was able to accommodate my group of about 50 in the main dining room. They provided me with extra tables to place awards and gifts on and even let me play a highlight DVD on the big screen TV. A last minute request for a gluten-free meal was... More

Dockside had a wide selection of foods which I like. The last couple of times that I went I was dieting and the staff was very flexible with making substitutions. They also have a lot of healthy dishes to choose from that are pointed out in the menu with symbols. You're nicely greeted as soon as you enter the place.... More
