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

This is a safe bet for a couple. Good service, menu has a good selection. My husband liked the steak & I liked the pasta. Maybe a bit overpriced but a safe place to eat.

The food is fine, although a little over priced. They have a nice selection of regional microbrews. Popular with locals, and busy on weekends.

Had lunch and ordered an $8 glass of wine but most restaurants carry a better wine for that price--this was easy an $8 a bottle wine at the 7/11 store, maybe cheaper at the market-- had the roast beef sandwich but had to pay extra for cheese, onions and gluten free bun which took the 13 dollar sandwich to a...

Italian food is good and prime rib is great. Bar is very well stocked and they make a nice variety of drinks.

I lived in the community for several years and ate at the Dockside frequently. The reasons I did are varied but the most important three are: (1) Quality... The Italian food, the steaks and the wine are excellent ! (2) Service... Fast, courteous and dependable... (3) Personalities... The people who work here are personable, caring and fun !

I visited this restaurant a number of years ago when I was in St. Helens for business. I liked it well enough then, and the atmosphere and menu have actually gotten much better. We stopped for lunch on the way to Astoria because I wanted to show my wife the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. Nice pasta dishes and salads... More

Took my wife to dinner at the Dockside for our 30th anniversary on a Tuesday evening. Although crowded, we were seated immediately and our drink order taken. The Dockside isn't really a romantic restaurant, consisting mostly of booths for four and a few free standing tables. We ordered the calamari appetizer which turned out to be the best decision we...

Stopped here for lunch on a quiet Sunday afternoon and was pleasantly surprised. I had the lasagna soup as a starter. I had never heard of such a thing, so the waiter served us a sample before we made up our mind. I was sold immediately. As an entre I had the Hazelnut Prawns (which was actually not on the... More

I really enjoyed my visit to this little restaurant. It had a great atmosphere and everyone was so friendly! That's really important for me when traveling with two little ones. The food was awesome and there was a lot of selection and I'm a picky eater. It was especially enjoyable for me as a Twilight fan because it is so... More
