We ate on the outside patio and it was a little chilly and they did not offer heaters, so it was a little uncomfortable. I didn't see anything indoors. However, the food was excellent and the wine list was good. Service was also good! Would...recommend!More

I met a long-time friend for lunch at the Dockside Grill, which is right on the water in Falmouth, ME. My GPS took me right there, parking was convenient, and we were seated right away. Service was exceptional, the menu was extensive, and the food...was delicious (if you like fresh seafood). This is a must visit restaurant if you are within 10 (or maybe 25) miles of Falmouth!More

The seafood chowder is outstanding. That alone is worth the trip. The crab cakes on the Caesar salad are also quite memorable.

Delicious French Toast with berries, whipped crepe, and real maple syrup. Only complaint is wished there was more syrup! Husband had fried scallops and egg Benedict.

What a wonderful meal we had. although it was chilly and misting we sat at the bar with a nice view of the marina and had some very delicious food. the bar was very comfortable and the staff was great. We had ceviche which was...among the best I can recall having along with a seafood cocktail, Lobster Fra Diavolo and Grilled Haddock. Spectacular taste in every dish. We will definitely be going back!!!!!More

This was a lunch with an old sailing friend who I haven't seen in 23 years. We had both bought and sold boats at the yacht brokerage located at the Handy Boat complex, and I used to keep my boat on a mooring out front...in Falmouth Harbor. There has always been a restaurant here, and the food has always been perfectly adequate. WE decided to set up out get together at this nostalgic location, but little did we realize the treat that we were in for. Service was excellent, the food was to die for and the ambiance in the restaurant was the best ever.More

We come here frequently, summer time is the best to eat outside, on patio or deck and watch the boats come and go. Today was a rainy, sleety, chilly December day, but that didn’t dampen our spirits or short drive for a late lunch. My...husband ordered his usual, fish & chips. He was very pleased. I diversified and had their cheeseburger (with bacon and caramelized onions). I opted for the field greens instead of fries and finished my plate. They also have terrific crabcakes, (The remoulade is delicious!) and a variety of cocktails. Andrew, our server (these last few visits anyway) was accommodating, kind and attentive. Plus he remembered how my husband takes his beloved coffee. Win!!More

This was our first visit to Dockside but definitely not the last for our family. My daughter and I ordered two different seafood pasta dishes so we could enjoy several different tastes. Our server, Jesse, was knowledgeable, energetic, and made sure we were taken care...of. My only regret was not being able to enjoy the view as we dined here long after dark.More

Delicious food in a wonderful location. We were able to eat semi outside, with good airflow and the diners were well spaced apart. Drinks and dinner were great. Service was excellent.
