Great spot for aquiet lunch in the Great Kills section of Staten Island. I recommend the Fried Calamari and the Ceasar salad. Seafood is seasonal.
It can get crampped and noisy for dinner.

Thank swanssi

Pretty bad food, will not go again. Their idea of Escargot is some canned escargot taken out of shell and some undiscribed bown tasteless sauces poured over. The restaurant is trying hard to "upscale", instead the food comes out as a mixture of too much and somewhat inedible. Evrything is poured over with way too much sauce; they add nuts, cheese, apples to everything: the end result is overwhelming and tasteless. "Lobster salad" is fake sahimi and taste like water. The potatoe crocket is also from canned fake potatoe. Hardly anything is fresh and the restaurant smells of fish. The only thing that's good is the view -- I guess that makes them feel entitled to charge 20% of gratuities. Enjoy the view from outside of the restaurant, the food is definitely not worth a visit.

We were taken here by some friends that live quite close-by and as soon as we walked through the door I knew that we were going to love the place. The restaurant itself has a charming atmosphere and a pleasant view of the waterfront and the staff made us feel extremely welcome. There's an excellent choice of seafood on the menu and the food when it came was delicious and plentiful. After the three courses, I was more than full and couldn't eat another thing. If you're visiting Staten Island and you like fish dishes then I would definitely recommend this place for quality food and service at very affordable prices.

Cole's Dockside's atmosphere was warm and comforting. The service was very good. Everything we ordered was great starting from the bakes clams, the lobster salad was great it was with the appetizers but it was such a big salad that i had to bring half of it home. The fried calamari were very good they just needed to be cooked for another minute or too. My husband ordered the Zuppa di Pesce and the smell was great, so i had to taste it of course. The best was the Creme Brulee I was so full but i figured if the food was so good the desert had to be even better and of course i was right. Very impressed will definetely go back.
