Have heard so much about this new fun place.. Dockside is a fun, casual outdoor/ some inside, hangout..we arrived on a Sunday afternoon. Sat at a outdoor bar side table over looking the marina.. Beautiful views!!
Had the best Orange Crush. Ever!!!
Ordered some wings. That were delicious!! We enjoyed the music playing outside..We definitely will be back!

“Hit & Miss”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Location is great, atmosphere is very nice and food is above average bar food. Service is very erratic. Don't know if the problem resides with the menu, the kitchen staff or the management but this place has some serious issues. Went there for lunch after it had only been opened for a few days with a party of 6. It took over 1 1/2 hours from the time our order was taken until everyone was served, and the place was not overly crowded. The wait staff seemed flustered but were unapologetic. Some items were not available since they had run out of certain foods. We wrote this off to growing pains and planned to return. I have since heard from other more recent diners that their wait and service were unacceptable. This is not fine dining - think tiki bar atmosphere. People come here for a couple of drinks and a light meal. Perhaps the menu needs to be reworked with items that can be prepared and served in a timely manner. The buzz has not been positive on this place so I hope it shows drastic improvement. It would be a shame to see this restaurant not succeed with such an exceptional location and atmosphere.

“Great place”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This place is a great spot to hit for happy hour in the area. Beautiful setting, awesome drinks. Food is pub type about what you would expect. A lot of fun to hangout there and a nice alternative rather than going up to Dewey all of the time.

“Great location, food, speed of service is a work in progress.”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This restaurant is new. Only open 3 weekends now. The atmosphere is very nice, except for the live music, they left much to be desired. It sets along the Indian river marina with a very nice view. The customer service was pleasant but the service was very slow. I assume they are still working out the kinks. They offer indoor and out door seating. When they increase their staffing to better handle the flow it will be a great place to dine. The food was very good and a decent value. Will return next year and look forward to seeing better speed of service.

“Bayside pub”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

This new place has taken over where two other restaurants failed, and seems to have it right. Beautiful open-air setting, great appetizers and sandwiches, adult beverages. It is very casual with self-seating and tables are picnic style (if you can get one) but service is quick and skillful.
Mixed crowd, well behaved happy adults.
