Difficult to find a nicer view of the water front, but thats about it. The service was quite slow and food was very average. At best it is probably average taste and quality.

Nothing special about this place....even the service was lackluster. If you go, perhaps just go for the view and have an ale!

The food was really good and the staff was friendly too. The decor wasn't much except for a couple of nice murals of Lunenburg on the walls. There was an option to eat outside looking at the bay. The pie was homemade and very good.

My wife and I had the fish and chips and it was great. Very tasty and cooked perfectly. The service was very good and you can't beat the atmosphere, sitting on the patio looking out at the water.

I can't comment on any of the other food they serve there, but the fish and chips were worth it and I would go back.

Personally I love the food here at the Dockside. It has the best pan fried haddock and clams & chips in all of Lunenburg. Unfortunately, the decor and the carpet looks like it has not changed since the 70s when it opened. It smells and feels old in this place, and it grosses me out that the waitresses smell like cigarettes.
If you sit on the patio you have the best view in Lunenburg and the decor can all be ignored and you can enjoy the best seafood in town.
