This Restuarant is set beside the Harbour at the Docklands and is a very relaxing place to enjoy either brunch, lunch or dinner! The food here is generally of a good standard , the soup, dips, Caesar salad and pasta dishes are delicious , the seafood spaghetti is my Favourite and the portion is generous and seafood not over cooked!...

We took our elderly parents both in their 80's for dinner there and my father ordered the fresh fish and was rushed to hospital at 4:30 in the morning due to severe food poisoning, I have eaten there 4 times and the food has always been bad. We only went there because it is close and my mother cannot walk... More

Loading Dock provides a welcoming venue with great food and a place to relax whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or perhaps a beverage after a hard day or an occasion with friends. You can always expect a huge belly-laugh from Mick and he is mindful and respectful of his customers wishes - whether they want to be... More

My group of friends and I are frequent customers of Loading Dock until today. Two weeks ago, we were there for lunch and stayed until 4:15pm before we paid for the bill. When I got home I realized that the fish & chips was charged on a higher price ($22.9) than the usual lunch price ($16.9) so a few days... More

We were there on a quiet Tuesday night and the service was excellent. The menu was good and the wine list is not overpriced. I had the Chicken Risotto, cooked to perfection and my wife had the Ravioli, which she said was nothing special.

Michael & his team are wonderful hosts. The venue enables you to enjoy the YE promenade- watch the boats come & go- people hurrying past or leisurely absorbing the YE. Loading Dock boasts a wonderful menu- breakfast, snacks, lunchtime & dinner- don't forget the bar! The meals always consistent - great sizes & always delicious. Visit sometime- you will not... More

Went hear for lunch for our daughters Birthday and enjoyed a great meal. Shared a dip platter and choose our main meals from both the menu and specials board. All our meals were great, the servings were generous and the selection of sweets - from the specials board - was a nice finish to our lunch. Would recommend it if... More

I am a local and have eaten here many times over the last few years. The location is superb with ground level views across the boardwalk to Yarra's Edge marina; there are always plenty of boats moored and my favourite time of year is Xmas-New Year when many boats are decorated with lights. This restaurant has a long and varied... More
