“Place to go with family by boat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

This restaurant is situated at the Meredith docks. You can get a dock space any time during the week. Maybe more difficult on weekends. The town should extend their dock space for the sake of the businesses in town. Outdoors is great with small children. Service is good for both food and drink.

“Nice place to eat overlooking the Lake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Inside and outside dining here, but we chose the outside deck on this beautiful day. All of our meals were delicious and we were able to see many boats on the lake while there.

“Fun restarant with great view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

Dockside is hardly gourmet cuisine, but is our favorite place of its kind on the lake. The food is good, it is served quickly and the staff is friendly. The chicken salad and pulled pork are outstanding. The ice cream is as well. The best part is the view of Wolfeboro Bay. Try to get a seat ourside to watch the biats come and go and, if you are lucky, the Mount Washington might come into the dock. Ducks often wander at your feet looking for treats.

“Stay away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

This restaurant is an unsanitary tourist trap being run by kids. My family and I went here for a late late on a Saturday. There were several empty tables inside but there was still a 15 minute wait. There did not seem to be any rush to clear empty tables and move people into the restaurant. Once we were finally seated, we were greeted by a nice waitress and that was the only good part of the next 30 minutes. We had a clear view of the line where a handful of teenage boys were in charge of the cooking. One person had on gloves. The others were literally handling the food that was being served - ripping lettuce with their hands, taking fists full of potato chips and french fries in their hands to put on plates, wiping on aprons and handling the next plate of food. At one point I saw a young man lean down and appear to be pushing the trash down in the bucket. He did carry the bag out of the immediate vicinity so he may have washed his hands but I wasn't willing to take that chance. I did let the waitress know that I wouldn't be eating my BLT and the reason why. She went over and told the "cook" yet he continued to man handle the food in plain view of all the patrons. I appreciate that the waitress did not bill us for any of the food but they need to make some bigger changes! I would never, ever go to this restaurant again under any circumstance. Plain gross.
