I haven't eaten at the Docksiders for quite some time but always found the food to be good. It's more of a pub style atmosphere, with relaxed seating and bar style for quick service but having an offside area with a restaurant style. This visit...was no different, had the curry chicken dish of which I enjoyed. The service was personable and pleasant.More

Gleaming wooden bar. Friendly locals. Good & joyful servers. Food is improving moment by moment. The curries get high reviews. The only downside is obviously it can get noisy as there aren't many soft furnishings.

We purchased some lunch from a restaurant next door to this establishment and made the mistake of sitting at a table outside of this establishment to eat it. As we were halfway thru eating, the management of this establishment indignantly told us we had to...move. We are Bermudians, who presently live abroad and didn't realise that Bermuda still suffers from such racism and become selfishly pocessive and mean to ask us to move even though not a soul entered their business the whole time we were there so we were not taking up their space. We know that if we were white visitors and sat there, they would not have asked us to move in the middle of eating our lunch. They told us that the space was private property, even though this portion of the business is on a public sidewalk which all Bermudian tax payers pay for. I would never patronise this business.More

We debated on stopping here or elsewhere becuase we had a kids (5 and 7) but wanted a bite, some sports on TV and a drink. We're happy we did. Nachohs were good, sports on TV my son enjoyed, but overall the service was great!...Very acomodating staff to make sure we were comfortable, prompt service, and when I decided to order my first Rum Swizzle, the lady made one and insisted she make one for my wife, complimentary to welcome us to the island. Not only her, but the other staff were great too. Definately recommend you stop by!More

I think this bar is great if there is a game on or if you want a quick drink. It is average- very casual - not dressy- I believe at night they may have some DJs, which makes the place a little more interesting, however...the crowd is okay- wouldn't want to hang out there all nightMore

Located on the far eastern end of Front Street, this place is surprisingly large once you walk in. Large bar area, tv's, and alot of tables to eat at. Locals appear to like the place and it's prices seemed reasonable compared to other places we...visited in Hamilton. Might be one of the better younger bars to go to as they put on beer pong nights, kareoke, etc.More

I went in a few times, mostly to watch the football and have a beer. Sam Adams was $8 a pint, which is about as cheap as you'll find it in Bermuda. Place was popular with the after work crowd.

Very friendly, good pub type food and quick service at very reasonable Bermuda prices. Child friendly. We ate and drank outside, watching Bermuda pass by.

Was traveling on business from Boston during the World Series. Needed the best place for a few beers, food and optimal viewing. Docksider was everything I needed, and more. Not only did they have the Sox on their big screens and projector, they even had...the bruins on TV for me as well. Felt just like home along with some good beers and pizza special ($10 Tuesday’s pizza). My bartender Andrew was a great host and took care of me all night. I know where I’ll be next time I need to watch a game when visiting Bermuda.More

As a few other people have pointed out you need to keep an eye on the final bill. Barman over charged us, then when we queried it, he shrugged his shoulders, took my money and said he couldn't do anything about it. Had to go...look for our food order and arrived cold Aside from that the place is dirty, poor draught beer selection.More

This is a great and lowkey sports bar to catch a game and have beers that are much cheaper then the resort hotels. They do music on the weekends and have a great laid back feel. Wasn't too crowded for a Saturday night.

After touring Hamilton, we stopped in for a pint & a bite to eat. This spot was highlighted by residents of the island. We shared an order of nachos & hot dogs. We were all pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food here. This...is a great sports bar w/TVs all around & a nice selection of beers on tap (inc. Guiness.) I'd recommend a visit for lunch and/or a drink to experience an island landmark.More

I dropped in last week on the evening of Harbour Night, and did a take out of their special of the day, "Blackened fish" sandwich. A few short hours later, let's just say, I did not leave the bathroom for 5 hours, and almost went...to the hospital. I was down for the count for 36 hours. When I went back to tell them their fish made me very sick, the manager's answer was "can I get you something else"???? No apology, no offer to reimburse me, nothing!! DO NOT EAT HERE!!!More

Did a little search for best fish sandwich on the island and this place popped up as being one close by. The pictures looked good and the food even better. Best fish sandwich I’ve had in a long time. I’d recommend having it with the...cinnamon raisin bread 👍🏼👍🏼. The sampler appetizer was way more than enough and took what we didn’t eat home for a late night snack. Bartenders were courteous and polite. I’ll definitely be back!More
