Nice dinner in nautical setting

Wife and I had a surprisngly nice dinner (good wine, good fish and steak) on the water near John Wayne marina. Enjoyed walking around the marina after dinner. Didn't expect such a good restaurant in Sequim.

Small charming restaurant with a terrific view of the harbor in Sequim. Grilled salmon over fettuccine special was yummy! Wish they were open every day. We would have gone back!

We made reservations the same day for Dockside Grill, but they took us next-door to the Pelican. When I ask our waiter why we weren't sitting in the Dockside, he ask when did we made the reservation. Today. And he said that's why. When walking in they had a bar, 6 high tables and a TV set over the bar... More

We took the recommendation of our hotel and chose Dockside to celebrate our anniversary dinner. We weren't disappointed! It is a small restaurant and we decided to wing it without a reservation on a Friday night (on Father's day weekend no less!) and were seated almost immediately. The hostess was very helpful, letting us know that if didn't have a... More

After a long day of whale watching out of Port Townsend, we decided to spend the night in Sequim. I asked for a suggestion for fresh local seafood and a quiet atmosphere. The desk clerk suggested the Dock Side Grill, located in the John Wayne Marina, and made reservations for us. Perfect! Dockside Grill is small and intimate and every... More

This is a small but very good restaurant located in the harbor at Sequim, WA. Small, so get a reservation and get ready for some great food.

This is a very small restaurant with 15 or so tables right on the John Wayne marina. Since it is small and very busy the kitchen is slow. This not a bad thing, the chef gets it right. The stuffed mushrooms, seafood tasters plate, and brownie dessert were all excellent. Service in the front of the house was slow when... More

Having read some reviews, I was a bit skeptical about what my experience would be. Having eaten at many restaurants in the Sequim - Port Angeles area, this was, by far, the best meal I have had in my 25 years living here. It was a beautiful day and the view of the marina was great. All 7 of us... More

Went for a birthday dinner with my wife and her sister. Hadn't been for a couple of years. Nice surroundings overlooking the harbor. Food was very good, wished I had saved room for dessert. The price for our special, halibut, seemed overly high at $42 per plate. Service was friendly. They do a very nice job but at that price,... More

This was my first night on my little road trip and I usually don't indulge much on the first meal, using it mainly as a travel day. But I just felt like fresh seafood for dinner and the gentleman at the front desk of my hotel recommended Dockside Grill at the John Wayne Wharf. I was absolutely not disappointed! It... More
