We went to the outside lounge area for afternoon snack We ordered a beer, ice coffee, Pizza, all for $27. The view is unbeatable compare to some other places in Granville. Go check out price at Granville food court, this place is a good deal consider comfortable seating, good service and view.

The prices are high. The menu too fancy. Food flavours are too experimental. Never paid so much and left so hungry. Convenient because the hotel room was upstairs and the ambiance is nice but that is where it ends . Service was hit and miss depending on who the server was

Must admit I was impressed throughout. Reasonably varied menu (not overwhelming) with something for all. Prices were fair for the location. Service really was great - attentive but not overbearing. Would not hesitate to recommend. Chowder was one of the best I have ever had. Calamari was chewy. Spring rolls were plain delicious!

On a trip several of us met one evening for some drinks and conversation & to get caught up with each other. The atmosphere was nice, beautiful location and friendly service. Our waiter gave us a few free samples with our order, and was attentive, but not too attentive. Some of the prices were a little higher than I'd have... More

I was looking forward to the Dockside Restaurant as a special treat for our sons birthday. As it was a Saturday evening I made reservations for five back in January requesting a window table. Alas we ended up in the middle just shy of the kitchen and in front of the bar. Our round table was sufficient for four but... More

Some of the most professional servers work here which seems to be rare in many restaurants these days. The menu selection is large and we have eaten both Breakfast and Dinner here and have enjoyed both. Preparation is well done and the quality of ingredients are top notch. Most tables have a view of the water.

We attended the New Years Eve party and saw in 2014. Our party consisted of two couples and we were warmly welcomed by Patrick who attended to us in an amicable fashiony all evening. The service was good and the food was excellent. In all we had a fantastic night. The only off put was when some people arrived at... More

Sadly I write a poor review for Dockside Restaurant. This is been my husband and I choice of restaurant for Christmas Dinner for many years. In the past it has been a wonderful buffet. This year they tried a new set up with two buffets one for cold and hot mains and a second for hot vegetables and an assortment... More

Not much more to add here. Service was attentive and quick enough but food was underwhelming and pricey.

Checked in to the hotel just in time for our Buffet seating - and managed to get seated (and begin choosing foods) almost immediately. An amazing selection of hot and cold dish selections, right up to the desert and chocolate-fountain tables. Lines did grow longer as other diners made their way through the seating process.
