“Great fish tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

The waterfront cafe has outdoor seating and they actually accept your pet on a leash at the outdoor seating area. We often go down for wonderful tacos and beer. The staff is great and always a fun place to meet new people.

“Local Favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Dockside is a fish market and outdoor restaurant. Great fish and chips, good N.E. clam chowder. Lots of fresh fish choices as well. Walk up counter service inside, nice wine and beer selections at reasonable prices, dog-friendly casual outdoor dining overlooking the "Rock" and the harbor. Fishing boats returning to offload their catch next to Dockside.

“Dog Friendly Dining Waterfront.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Well, the dog friendly dining is at Tognazzini's Dockside patio dining right behind the restaurant. The restaurant has the same fresh off the boat fish. The restaurant is good. Good service and good food. You can't get fresher than right off the boat.
Behind the restaurant is a patio dining, dog friendly, Tognazzi's at the fish market. You go in, choose fish from the fish market and how you would like it prepared. There is no waitress service, you pick up the food yourself and eat at patio tables. This is separate and behind the restaurant.
There is often live music and always people with dogs. You can sit at a table from which you could fall into the bay. Sea lions frequently service knowing that the fish market is there. It is a truly fun and unique event!!

“Amazing Seafood Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Our family visited Dockside for a Birthday celebration. The adults enjoyed some wonderful fresh seafood and the children had the macaroni and cheese which our 8 year old grandson rates as the best mac and cheese he has ever had. Service was great and the prices quite reasonable. they even let you bring your own birthday cake and will serve it for you.

“Happy Anniversary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Celebrated our anniversary and the service and food made it memorable. We both had one of the specials. The waitress talked me into trying the Cajun crusted barracuda and it was delicious. Saturday night wait a little long, but well worth it and the staff went out of their way to show appreciation for our waiting.
