The approach to the Dockside Restaurant is all part of the Dockside’s charm. You are treated to views of the York River and the grand “summer cottages” as you turn onto Harris Island Road to reach Dockside Restaurant. The view is quintessential Maine, people hustling up and down the docks, gleaming yachts and colorful lobster boats in front of a rock and pine-tree shore. Dockside’s recent renovation is perfect, warm and comfortable. Hardwood floors, European style lighting floor to ceiling window and a new mahogany bar with an adjoining outdoor cocktail deck. During warm months seating is available on our harbor view screen porch. The atmosphere is casual but the food is serious. Chef Dennis la Planet has been recognized as a “chef’s chef”. North Atlantic seafood prepared with a northern Italian influence and aged steaks are just the start. Lunch features organic salads, creative sandwiches and traditional favorites; fish and chips, chowders and fried clams too.

Better than the hotel

Since we were staying int he Dockside Guest Quarters, having dinner in this restaurant was very comfortable, so we did it twice. Once we tried the lobster and then a steak, and I can´t decide which was better. Salads were also good and they offered a nice selection of wines. The staff was kind and... read more

Our favorite place for lunch in Maine. Good food, reasonable price, excellent service and a view to die for. Worth looking for.

Besides a beautiful view of the harbor, we enjoyed an outstanding meal and excellent service. As expected the scallops were fresh and perfectly prepared.

The location is excellent. The food was good. The only drawback is that you are not sitting 100% outdoors due to the mosquitos

For me this place is all about the view. I've eaten here several times over the years and we choose it for the view. I wish the menu were more varied. I'm allergic to seafood and every entrée has it. That said, food is good - just nothing special. If it weren't where it is, I would go elsewhere. But... More

This is a great restaurant tucked away in a quiet setting apart from the congestion of York Harbor. We requested a table on the porch, and the whole experience made for a wonderful night out with friends. The menu is very eclectic with a nice twist to standard fare. We began with the crab cakes and salads. The crab cakes... More

We stopped here last week for lunch while passing through York and really enjoyed this restaurant. We ate out in the back porch and the the view peaceful atmosphere was just wonderful. We had lobster rolls and they were just deliciously prepared. Fries and coleslaw were delicious also. The server was accomodating and pleasant. This is a very clean restaurant.... More
