We go to Dockside weekly. We just love the fresh seasonal food. If I could eat there daily I would. If your going for breakfast be sure to order their breakfast potatoes. One of my favorites for lunch is their kale spinach soup. I always like to try something new off of their daily specials. We never had a bad... More

I have no idea how they consistently generate such great breakfasts out of a tiny kitchen but they do it with smiles on their faces. Expect to wait in line on weekends during the season, but on weekend only they have sausage gravy on fresh biscuits that are to die for. Extensive menu, legendary omelettes, great home fries, and special... More

We were cruising for waterside dining. The Dockside is in a marina on the river and most tables have a view. The service is friendly and clearly this is a popular place for lunch with regulars. The food was fine, but not exciting. I should note, we didn't see the specials (nor were we told about them) until we paid... More

A great family, friends, or just couple restaurant. The breakfast and lunch entrees are all very fresh. The cafe has a great waterfront view, which is so relaxing in the morning. I love the sandwiches they offer, always filling too. The cooks are excellent with preparation. Defiantly a place to stop by for brunch.

Want a good breakfast at 0700 to take on your boat? The Dockside is for you. Rye bread, hot coffee and $3.99 omelettes are the way to win customers.

This “shorey” place has been in business for nearly two decades. Tucked away on the bay, you’ll certainly find this eatery a place where you get a good meal for the value. In season, eat inside or right next to the bay as boats cruise by. We had a Philly chicken steak and a Baby Jane (like a cold Ruben)... More

The view is great watching boats go by while having breakfast or lunch.Have to say their home fries are really something,haven't tasted anything like it in a long time,maybe at a carnival.

This restaurant is truly located on a dock overlooking the water. Four of us were there for lunch and ordered their Manhattan Clam Chowder, crab cake sandwich, chicken wrap and cheeseburger. Everything was well seasoned and prepared. The portions are generous and the staff is helpful and attentive. Would definitely return there.
