The Docksider is the only waterfront restaurant on Glen Lake. It is a cute waterfront restaurant with a large covered deck area. You can arrive by boat and tie up for free. There are usually open docks and the boat launch for car top boats (kayaks, canoes and SUP) is adjacent to the Docksider... read more

Coming here for years and love it. The food is very good, not gourmet. The location on the lake is breathtaking and enjoyable while waiting for a table. May take half hour to be seated, as no reservations. Staff is helpful and friendly. Highly recommended

Good food, good service, hostess a bit rude. Be prepared to wait on Friday and Saturday nights. Very nice atmosphere.

Our family recently ate the Docksider and we were very pleased with the quality of the food, the price, and the amazing outside view.

The restaurant was close to our lodging which is why we chose it. The food and menu were average - nothing special. The service was not great.

Great location.... right on Lake George. We sat at a table with a beautiful view of the water. Food was average, prices were a little high but with the view of the lake.. we didn't mind the prices. Waitress was very nice and attentive. We will be returning to this restaurant again. Definitely recommend.

A weekend getaway to Lake George with kayaking on our mind led us to Glen Lake and lunch at the Docksider. The atmosphere of the Docksider is wonderful! Situated right on the waters edge; decorated with the most beautiful flowering baskets we have seen in a long time; ample access to shade, it was a perfect setting. This girl gives... More
