Yummy food and good service

We had a private group booking upstairs, I found the food to be excellent and the service fine. The entree was almost the same size as the main, which I thought was strange, but I was full by the end of the meal. Good selection of wine and beer.

Took half an hour to sort out a table - that should have been a clue! 1/4 of our party ordered entries, we asked if our mains could be bought out however apparently that was impossible until entrees had been cleared. Time between being seated and having our meal = 8 glasses of water & 1 hour and 45minutes!!!!

We enjoyed our dinner at Dockside. The food was quick, fresh and delicious. The staff were amazing! It is in a great location overlooking the water, we also had a great table where the floor under us was clear so you cold see jellyfish and fish!

My daughter and I came in here this afternoon after attending the wedding show with two friends. We shared the crumbed fish and chips and ever since have been violently I'll. Service was average-poor where we had to approach the bar for more water and no one checked on us once. My first and last visit!

I've dined at Dockside numerous times and always enjoy the experience. Fab location right on the water front, non pretentious decor and friendly staff. Most recently I visited on a Friday evening, luckily for me I saw a grabone deal pop up for a platter before I headed down, after a bit of confusion we were able to use the... More

I purchased a Grab One voucher for a "Platter & Drinks". The fine print said: VALID FRIDAYS FROM 5.00 pm AND ALL DAY SUNDAY. Nothing was mentioned about not being able to use it on Mother’s Day so I purchased it and booked online for Sunday 10 May (Mother's Day). The next day I was rung to be told I... More

This is a somewhat underrated but extremely popular Wellington Restaurant to be found on the wharf in an ideal location. Easy to walk to and from many hotels in the vicinity. Booked ahead to ensure a place for dinner. We had a most pleasant evening. Small but carefully selected menu and wine selection but ample to choose from. Classy seafood... More

Pan fried snapper was sensational. You must try the scollops and calamari for starter. Thanks also to our great waitress who looked after us on a busy night.

This was my second visit to Dockside. The location is great with the main dining area overlooking the water. The service and food have been super on both occasions.The bar with big tv screen is a bit incongruous with the more formal dining area but this is easily forgotten when you are through to the main room...but woe betide if...
