Nothing fancy but good Maine dishes small and large. A fun spot for lunch or dinner with a nice beer selection. Of course we had seafood and was very pleased. Outside sitting and dog friendly.

We were walking down to the harbor, and stopped in for lunch - the best lobster rolls we have had in a long time. Great service.

Loved everything about Docksider! The walk-up window provided many nights of delicious ice cream for dessert. The tator tots are to die for!! Great lobster in a humble spot with family-run spirit and service. It's a really casual place and a little pricey, but everything...More

If you in Northeast Harbor, you probably don't care what things cost, but this place charges a lot more than it looks. The seafood was fine. I ordered a salad which was good too. However, charging $5.00 for an ear of corn is shocking. Also,...More
