Great burgers! Not sure where the people who say it's on the river actually ate though...

I've been to the Dockside many times in the summers, as we have a camp outside of A-Bay. It's a small bar/restaurant that serves great burgers and has good specials. That said, there are a number of reviews on here citing the "outdoor seating" and "great views of the dock and boats." I'm not sure... read more

If you are looking for friendly, relaxed and casual, this is the place! Daily lunch and dinner specials are always above average, and they make excellent pizza and burgers.

This is a small, local bar that has pub food and pizza. We ate there two nights (Saturday and Sunday) during our stay in Alexandria Bay. The first night ordered hot sandwiches and the second night had pizza. The food was good and our service was fine. We arrived around 8 pm on Saturday night and it was extremely busy... More

Just to clarify, Dockside is not on the water and does not have an outside deck. Think that would be Dock on the Bay, also in Alexandria Bay, NY. What Dockside does have is locals, seriously great burgers and sandwiches, cold beer and very reasonable prices. Go there.

We normally love going to Dockside for a quick sandwich after a busy day. When we arrived there was only one person there. We ordered and next thing we knew was a hug huge fight between the kitchen and bartender. . The kitchen chef went outside because the bartender was way out of order and bragging about stupid things like... More

We found this place and we like it. Not your normal tourist trap in very tourist area (summers). small place, good prices and fast service. Nothing outstanding other than it is a pub and not a chain. You get a cold beer, a meal under $10 bucks and nice waitress. All I am looking for a diving to end the... More

My husband and I decided to try someplace new this trip to Alex Bay, so we gave the Dockside Pub a try. The service was excellent and the food came out really fast! That was the good part, but it goes downhill from there. We ordered a Margarita and it came in a plastic picnic cup!! Really?? The salt couldn't... More

Had a decent enough lunch here. The bartender was friendly initially but seemed to be avoiding interacting with her customers unless she absolutely had to. Food was really good. Make sure you have extra napkins it can be a sloppy endeavour.
