The atmosphere at the dockside is just as the name suggests. Casual with nice views, central location on the waterfront. Staff are friendly and the food good.

Will consider my experience very good overall based on restaurant location, food quality and staff friendly service. I had to complain in one of my visits and the manager showed professionalism in correcting the situation.
