Lunch

This restaurant is family friendly. I went to lunch and sat at the booths next to the window. I ordered a sandwich and coffee. When when the coffee arrived it was just warm, not hot. The waitstaff quickly took care of the problem. The sandwich was good but the coleslaw I did not like.

This is one of those split decision reviews - the food here was quite good, but everything else drags down the score. Portions are big so even though prices are a bit high the value is there. However...service was poor (we got the main course before our salads - she "forgot"), and the decor is "tired." Burned out bulbs, mis-matched... More

Unremarkable at best. I had heard about how good this restaurant was every since moving to the area. The first time we went in there, during the Christmas Boat Parade, we were rather unceremoniously turned away because we didn't have a reservation. We were told that they would not be able to serve us that night. Despite this, we went... More

We came here because let's face it saint Helens restaurants are horrible and this is the last one we wanted to try. What a bad experience. We ordered their artichoke dip. It was so greasy and it came out within 3 minutes, obviously not fresh. My husband ordered a medium well steak and since they are a steak place we... More

Living in the area, we've eaten at the Dockside many times. This is a smallish, cozy restaurant with some tables having a view of the river. The prices have risen too much, though. I took guests for brunch, which turned out to be top-dollar prices for average food. That said, the Dockside serves the best side salads in town. The... More

Our daughter told us about her experience with Dockside. She said she really enjoyed her lunch. Our best friends came for our weekly lunch out together. We went to Dockside and I had the blackened catfish sandwich, my wife had the prime rib dip, our friends had spaghetti with meat sauce with meatballs (extra $4 for the sauce & 4... More

Hadn't been here for a number of years so decided to drop by for lunch and have some pasta carbonara with chicken. The place seemed a lot brighter than I remembered or maybe just that it was daylight out Pasta was decent but was just regular spaghetti and the house wine was OK. As luck would have it - I... More

Arrived without reservations on a Saturday night, and we were seated right away. The service was friendly, and quick. The entire staff was great, suggesting plates and giving recommendations. This is the best place to go for a romantic Italian meal north of Portland, and the only option for Longview/Kelso. The manager here makes this a well run and friendly... More
