Description: Dockside Sea Grille serves the freshest seafood in Lake Park, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and North Palm Beach. Whether it be Maryland crabcakes, a Maine Lobster Roll, or the fresh catch of the day, Dockside can fill all your seafood needs.At Dockside Sea Grille, we've poured our heart and soul creating a small locally owned business that takes pride in creative, uniqely crafted seafood filled with outside the box ideas. We aren't Applebee's, TGI Fridays, Olive Garden or any type of corporate restaurant and we certainly don't do things by the book. We love to acknowledge our customers, getting to know more about them, their favorite drinks, and menu items. Dockside is a hole in the wall local Lake Park, West Palm Beach, and North Palm Beach restaurant and we love our customers, friends, and family that we get to share it with. We hope to see you soon! So stop in and enjoy great food and drink while dining outside on the water under the thatched tiki roof. You'll feel like you walked into paradise! Please visit us at docksideseagrille.com

So everyone who I asked for recommendations for seafood in the Riv Beach or NPB says, try Dockside. But to a person...They all say..."Its really expensive" Well they were exactly right. I just don't get it. The food was good, but it was not great or excellent. And the ambience is cheesy waterfront with a trashy parkingl lot and a clear view of the messy hot kitchen. You could skip this place and be just fine. For the price, there are many better places.

The food is OK. The venue is fun--on a lake. They have some great specials. Not fancy.

First of all, you know when they have discounted prices for cash only, you are in trouble! Second, there is basically no wine list--2-3 bottles, so if you are anticipating a nice bottle of wine and relaxing on the deck--go elsewhere. Third, the service is pushy and rude--they keep coming over to your table and showing you other dishes that are going by--trying to get you to buy them. Pathetic. We had the smoked fish dip as an appetizer. The portion was tiny and it came with crackers still in the wrapper. And it certainly was NOT homemade. When we decided not to order a meal because the service was so bad and the prices way to high, we waited 20 minutes for the check. Then, we waited another 15 minutes to get our credit card back. Do yourself a favor and go to any of these places for excellent seafood and great service: Juno Beach Fish House, Coola Fish, Captain Charlie's Reef Grill!!

We Decided to check this out because of a newspaper review. It was very small with no spots for parking . You can see the kitchen as you walk in and it was disgustingly dirty. Bugs were flying around us as we ate (inside) not on the patio. The food was very pricey and nothing more than warmed up frozen entrees. I would not waste my money on going back!

We went on 05/12/12 around 7ish...wanting to catch the light left in the day on the dockside. We had to wait over 20 minutes inside becasue their kitchen was backed up. Meanwhile there were over 6 tables outside available. They would not allow us to sit outside to wait either. Food is overpriced. Service is terrible.very slow. On the up side, my tablemates had coconut shrimp, they loved it, and the Lobster roll sandwich they said was good. Clam chowder was ordinary. The sauteed calamari...no flavor at all. would not go back.
