Nice place with warm atmosphere

We had a lovely evening here with another couple. The atmosphere is quite and pleasant for conversation. The wait staff is wonderful. The food was very good but not fabulous. The location is on a marina so the view is lovely. We would eat there again. I had steak and it was cooked to my... read more

Very high quality food; excellent wait staff. Good, local menu. I had the oyster stew, which was more spicy than I like at first, but it cooled off and was very tasting. Everything was excellent! And the view was great~!

Located at the John Wayne Marina just east of the town of Sequim, this family owned dining establishment is always busy. Do call for reservations. The location is right on Sequim Bay with nice views of the bay and small marina. We were a party of five and even though we had reservations, there was a small wait time. that... More

So disappointed. We enjoy dining at Dockside for special occasions. Had the best table (corner window). We were seated on time as we had a reservation. Our waitress, Emily, was extremely timid and inexperienced. Avoided our table and any attempt at conversation. Our appetizers were timely. However we waited over 45 minutes for our entree to arrive. Wouldn't have been... More

I don't really know if there are any other restaurants in Sequim because once we went to Dockside, we couldn't go anywhere else. Friendly and casual with exceptional seafood. The chocolate brownie dessert was so good my friend actually moaned when she tasted it. I've been there now three times, and each time has been oh so good. One of... More

We were fortunate and had a seat by the windows. We ate around 2 pm on a Thursday so there were only a few people there. We enjoyed it very much. I had the fish tacos (mahi) and my husband had chicken parmesan. My fish was superb. I heard comments of the other customers who also very highly complimentary of... More

Made reservation for 3 based on a recommendation from hotel. Place is mostly full, couple big parties. We walk past some empty tables with marina views, to be seated in a room off the side where our heads are at ground level - painted concrete at my shoulder. I asked to move up front and was dismissed with "restaurant is... More

We (my wife, I, and another couple) experienced excellent service while having dinner at the Dockside Grill. The waiter gave us the time we needed before placing our order while answering our questions as they came up. My water glass was kept full despite my emptying it often as I had spent the warm day outdoors. The food that I... More

This place was recommended by the bnb we were staying at (which is exceptional) so we booked a table. On arrival it was pretty busy and we were shown to an additional dining area which was basically the sports bar in the yacht club complete with tv showing baseball and atmosphere to match. Fine, except for the prices really were... More

Interesting location, and over priced, but great service! We had a great meal, wonderful home made salad dressings, and attentive service, but... Yes, it is on John Wayne Marina, but it's really not "dockside". We sat in the "lounge" with main restaurant menu, and our server was great, it's an awkward seating arrangement while looking at concrete. Food was well... More
