I went on a Sunday evening. The dining room side was mostly empty. The food was okay. I got the baked haddock, rice and broccoli. The fish and rice was moist but nothing special, kinda bland tasting. The broccoli was limp and flavorless. No one...else raved about the food either. Not bad but not sure it is worth a repeat trip.More

So many better choices in the area. This is a place to go for Bud Lights and Keno, not dinner. The food is okay. The staff are friendly enough.

We came in for a PJ event and had lunch first. Food was ok, not great. My daughter got cheeseburger sliders, and didn’t finish. I was boring and got a grilled cheese. Bread wasn’t too good either. Prices were decent and Keno was good. Waitstaff...were young and having side conversations about “stuff” ...More

Family time there, Patricia was very kind and made us feel comfortable. Food is pretty simple and typical American but good. Had a recommendation on the Beef Broil and it was actually surprisingly tasteful. To visit on this kind of evening when you just want...to eat simple!More

The Dockside is an awesome place to grab some great food and drinks. The bar is a great place to watch a game or involve yourself in trivia or karaoke. There are different events on different nights. Prices are very reasonable, portions are huge. The...menu has just about everything. I recommend the pizza and the nachos! Teh staff here is the best. Friendly, funny and very attentive!! If you are planning a party or large get together there is a good size function room as well. Oh, and did I mention KENO?More

Steak tips very good. Waitstaff is a bit spicy. If you can't find something on the menu to appeal to you there is something wrong with you.More

I visited this restaurant with a buddy after a round of golf. We both ordered two pizzas each, and we both brought our leftovers home to our families, so the wives didn't have to cook. The restaurant is very spacious, and very reasonable. Quite a...few families seem to visit this family restaurant.More
