After reading some TA reviews about the Dockside and it only being less than 2 miles from our hotel, we decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, when we got there, we found the place was closed and the majority of the interior fixtures gone. Even though we originally had our taste buds set on seafood, on the bright side...

We stopped here for a quick bite while passing through Orlando. We were kind of in the mood for seafood and given the name thought we'd give it a try. We were surprised to find that it wasn't busy since it was mid afternoon and its close proximity to SeaWorld. It's a somewhat weathered, casual dining restaurant. They offer clams,... More

My daughter and I wanted a place to gab some seafood after our flight in from out of town. We did not want CHAIN Restaurant food, but rather local fare. It was 8 PM on Saturday night and we were astounded at the lines of people everywhere. We thought we would give this one a try and we are glad... More

My husband and I spent a week at our timeshare near SeaWorld. We needed a place to eat before grocery shopping and found the Dockside Grill in the shopping plaza with the grocery store. Yummy BBQ ribs. We ordered one dinner for the two of us and still had enough to take home for another meal. Friendly waitress, good service.

Everyone burger place claims to have the best burger in town but I KNOW these guys do. The burgers will immediately remind your off those you enjoyed coming off of your Dad's backyard grill. What Dockside also needs to shout about is their fries. Perfect golden, crispy potaoe numnums. The service is absolutely top notch and if you need lunch... More

I read some of the reviews and decided to give it a go. We stopped by in the afternoon to look at the menu and came back at 7 for dinner. The place was empty. That's always a little scary. Anyway, I had the blackened grouper and my husband had a burger. Not bad but not outstanding. The service was... More

We took a last minute, week-long trip to Orlando and wanted to find local restaurant, close to our resort. We stumbled upon Dockside Grill and enjoyed it so much, we returned a second time during our trip. The fries were some of the most fresh and crispiest we've ever had. The Caesar salad was probably the best we've ever had... More

Below average food with below average service. Perhaps it was just a bad night, but our experience was mediocre at best. The orders at our table ranged from burgers to ribs. The burger was ok, the fish and chips were ok, the shrimp sandwich was passable, but the ribs were absolutely awful with a thick layer of burnt char on... More

Took shelter here on a scorching hot day whilst waiting for the family's ride to finish. Had a really tasty Root beer with lots of ice. Was very tempted by their delicious looking cakes and now regret not having one. Very comfortable, shaded seating, ideal for a mid-day sit-down.

Came here on a Tuesday night during Spring Break week. They were understaffed but explained as soon as we arrived it would be a slight wait. It was worth it! Steamed peel and eat shrimp were great, mussels, popcorn shrimp and grouper were all wonderful. Fried oysters were DELICIOUS!!!!
