My daughter and I wanted a place to gab some seafood after our flight in from out of town. We did not want CHAIN Restaurant food, but rather local fare. It was 8 PM on Saturday night and we were astounded at the lines of people everywhere. We thought we would give this one a try and we are glad we did. The place was clean, the waitress was super nice and the food was good and reasonably priced. Best of all...NO lines!!! The food was good and we were very glad to find a nice, quiet place to enjoy supper! Not fabulous drop dead food, but still good and enjoyable. We would come back here again!

My husband and I spent a week at our timeshare near SeaWorld. We needed a place to eat before grocery shopping and found the Dockside Grill in the shopping plaza with the grocery store. Yummy BBQ ribs. We ordered one dinner for the two of us and still had enough to take home for another meal. Friendly waitress, good service.

Everyone burger place claims to have the best burger in town but I KNOW these guys do. The burgers will immediately remind your off those you enjoyed coming off of your Dad's backyard grill. What Dockside also needs to shout about is their fries. Perfect golden, crispy potaoe numnums. The service is absolutely top notch and if you need lunch in a hurry you will find you are in and out with a perfect repast on your schedule.

I read some of the reviews and decided to give it a go. We stopped by in the afternoon to look at the menu and came back at 7 for dinner. The place was empty. That's always a little scary. Anyway, I had the blackened grouper and my husband had a burger. Not bad but not outstanding. The service was fine.

We took a last minute, week-long trip to Orlando and wanted to find local restaurant, close to our resort. We stumbled upon Dockside Grill and enjoyed it so much, we returned a second time during our trip.

The fries were some of the most fresh and crispiest we've ever had. The Caesar salad was probably the best we've ever had from a restaurant; just the right amount dressing and taste, crisp lettuce. The burgers were huge and wonderful, and the fish was moist, the calamari was so crispy and wonderful!

The customer service was excellent; our waitress quickly brought out the kids food, knowing they were hungry and very tentative to their needs. The local residents eating there were friendly, asking us where we were from and shared Orlando stories.

The only downside we experienced were the restrooms. They were definitely outdated and gave the presence that they weren't clean - however, that may be because they are outdated/old.

Overall, our experience was great food, great prices, great customer service (both times during that week) and highly recommend it for a lunch or dinner option!
