“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Don't go for the food. Atmosphere is good, and you can play buzz trivia at the bar. Drinks were good price. Food is overcooked and just not good. Service was good.

Denise, thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts about your recent visit in January. As a restaurant we strive to exceed your expectations at all times. After reviewing your comment, it seems we failed to do this. It truly bothers me to hear that you did not enjoy our food.
However it is great to hear that you experienced good service and enjoyed our atmosphere. We will be sure to utilize your feedback in further training in our kitchen. Should you have any additional comments or concerns, please feel free to email me at lisa@docksiderestaurants.com.

“KENO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Loyal dining card member and it is certainly worth it. Staff very friendly & attentive to your needs.
Menu features many different options and the daily and weekly specials only to add to it.
Definitely recommend visiting one of their four location. The Centre Street location is the one we most frequently visit.

“Great prime rib!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I have had their prime rib several times and it really has been cooked perfectly and delicious! The last time I had it delivered and it was still excellent! I am a semi-regular customer and have had a number of not-so-good entrees, which they strive to correct, but overall I usually enjoy the food and the staff.

“Always freezing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

The food is average to good. But you can never enjoy yourself in the Malden location because it is always freezing in there that you can't enjoy your meal. Especially in the winter. They let everyone go out by the back door to smoke and with the door opening and closing constantly it makes it very uncomfortable. I have even stopped going as much as I have due to this.

Thank you very much for visiting our restaurant and for your informative review. As a restaurant, we strive to exceed your expectations at all times and it is disappointing to learn that we did not do that. We have installed a new thermostat at this location and trained all management the proper way to use it. I would like to apologize for your past inconveniences and assure you the concern has been addressed. Should you have any additional comments or feedback, please feel email me directly at lisa@docksiderestaurants.com.
