Enjoyed their take on Brakfast

We decided to check out the Dockside Restaurant for a mid-morning meal. The service was fast and friendly, the food was prepared fresh and fast. We were both very happy with our orders. The view of the adjacent marina is absolutely breath taking.

Having not dined at the Granville Island Hotel for many a year, we decided to give Dockside a try on the recommendation of friends and based on the waterfront view location. Well, the view and setting were spectacular aside from the relative extreme noise abound, and that was the highlight of the evening save the company. The food was absolute... More

The staff were polite, friendly and attentive. We had very tasty cocktails to start the meal. We both ate the halibut which was done to perfection. We shared a bottle of white wine and some cheesecake for dessert. But the most delightful thing was watching the seabirds outside and watching the glow of the sun reflecting off the buildings at...

Went with a group of about 20 for Sunday brunch. Service was very efficient and polite. Good choice of menu items, good food and great view of the water. They also had a lady guitarist/singer that added to the enjoyment of our visit. I would recommend the Dockside...

We love wandering Granville Island when we get to Vancouver. Sunday brunch at Dockside was very good. A Caesar to begin, with extra clam juice, then spring rolls which were scrumptious. Husband had a house omelet with 3 kinds of mushrooms and I had heirloom tomato spinach eggs Benedict. Really delicious food and watching the harbor, the kayaks, the sculs,... More

The view is terrific, partly due to the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water. The salmon burger was one of the best I've ever had!

We visited Dockside due to its listing in a “visiting Vancouver”-type brochure, (in hindsight, this should have been a warning flag) touting its scenic views, vibrant happy hour lounge, and quality drink selection. It seemed like a great way to kick off our first trip to Vancouver. Unfortunately, while not by any means dismal, it was certainly unimpressive. The restaurant,... More

When we take a mini-vacation in Vancouver, we always try to eat at the Dockside Restaurant and Brewing Company. Their ceasar salad is complex and piquant. Their pasta in inventive and entrees are beautifully plated and perfectly cooked. We've not had a bad meal here in years.

delicious food, excellent service, helpful friendly staff; enjoy their signature Sunday Brunch (perhaps the excellent Canadian Salmon Benny?) with Jazz accompaniment
