Knowing from experience that the atmosphere here comes from the view, at the John Wayne Marina outside of Sequim (I was told Wayne owned property and his family donated some of it for the marina), not the minimalist decor, I went for an early Sunday dinner, arriving just before sundown. Considered going for lunch, but after consulting the menus on... More

Chef Steve and his lovely wife Ruth, prepare "Simply the Best" that can be offered. From the minute you arrive you are pampered. The food is Exquisitely prepared, presented, enjoyed and savored, until next you can go or be invited by someone else. Whatever you do "Make it a Must" the new neighborhood "Pelican Room" is a Secret meeting place... More

My wife and I were camped out at the John Wayne RV park across the street - wandered over and experienced a great meal!! Service was bang on - an excellent menu and our food was outstanding! Got some food to go to enjoy the next day. The harbor view at sunset was a bonus.

small place in the lower floor of the marina building. hard to find in the dark, not enough signage. Reservations a must. Food was fa-nominal, we split a salad and a bowl of bisque. I had seafood and my wife had a steak.....both were again fabulous......great wine list.

stopped here for lunch. Disappointed the deck was undergoing renos which ruined the view but the food made up for it. Had the seafood Louis salad. Best ever. The scallops were tender fresh and melt in your mouth, the prawns we perfectly seasoned. Wish there were more than two. Lots of crab. husband had reuben sandwich and we both had... More

We are saddened when we have to leave such a poor review, however, our experience at Dockside Grill was nothing short of horrible. We had reservations and, upon arrival, had to wait in a very small entry area, even though there were a number of tables empty. When they finally greeted us, they told us to wait while they prepared... More

I took my husband here for his birthday, and we LOVED the food. I didn't have the highest expectations after reading mixed reviews, but we had a fantastic meal. The seafood is beyond fresh...practically caught right out front! My husband had cioppino and I had a seafood pasta dish. Both were generous portions, loaded up with top notch seafood. They... More

We had reservations for an early dinner (4:30 pm), a nearly empty restaurant awaited us. The wait staff was either unaccounted for or simply not available. As others have pointed out, this place has high prices for seafood, in an area where seafood is plentiful. The unfortunate thing is that it is NOT exceptional -- it is merely average. To... More

This is an upscale seafood restaurant and I'd located at the John Wayne Marina. The food was excellent but vey overpriced. If you are willing to pay $30-45 per meal for seafood ( in a location that should have lots of seafood at a reasonable price) then this is for you. I need a better bang for the buck.

My wife and I had lunch here, and man was it good. The day was sunny, and this place was packed. We got a table just before the line started. Service was excellent, and our lunches perfect. My wife had Halibut, and I had Oysters cooked in the Dock's own style. They were fantastic. Located dock side at the John... More
