On a cold evening, nothing better than to enter a warm, fern-filled beach-decorated haven that happens to have fantastic seafood. Dockside Market has improved the decor with plants, surf boards, and fresh flowers. The food has always been the highlight. The clams casino/Parmesan clams duo was so tasty. My salmon entree was perfectly cooked and my husband loved his fisherman... More

I am not sure how long it has been here but I am sorry I did not know from day one. It is BYOB or they have a local vineyard available. We loved the casual atmosphere but with a refined menu. My husband loved the seared tuna and my smoked salmon on a cedar plank was delicious. The deserts at... More

Laid back relaxing atmosphere with outstanding food. The food was presented beautifully and cooked perfectly. Comparative or better than dining in a highly rated NYC restaurant. I believe the head chef came out and delivered the food. He was constantly looking around to make sure everyone was enjoying their meals. We will be back.

Located in the Walmart / Lowes parking complex. Fresh seafood and a good price. Nice diverse menu. Seafood is not the only thing. Tonight special was cowboy steak. Chicken is also on the menu. Raw clams at a great price. 1$ each. Can be noisy when a big party is having fun. Not a lot of noise baffling Seaside decor... More

Driving up from our home in the south where we get fresh seafood all year long, we like to stop at Dockside for their fish. We celebrated a birthday dinner. The staff were very attentive and the food beautifully done. Thank you for a lovely evening.

The food here is very good. Very fresh seafood and great flavors. The appetizers are great...the coconut shrimp is absolutely amazing. I am usually not a fan of mango salsa but the mango salsa that comes with the coconut shrimp is something to rave about. There is usually one waitress working when I have been there but she is friendly,... More

We visited here twice in December and it is never disappointing. The food is fresh and well prepared. The staff is friendly and helpful. Along with the regular menu, check out the daily specials... Always something new and delicious to look forward to.

We two arrived at 6 PM on a Sunday. The stated hours are 11am till 7 pm. There were tables available. We were told we could not be seated by an unfriendly staffer because "the kitchen was backed up and the computer was down." This is not a huge establishment and verbal or written order instructions can be addressed to... More
