We enjoyed our meal here very much, the staff is friendly and fairly efficient, food is quite good and flavorful, portions are large (suggest splitting a salad between 2 as they are on the large size, There is a decent wine list which is reasonably priced. Dessert selection was rather limited. Would suggest making a reservation as they do get quite busy in the evenings.

Whenever I get a chance to stop here and eat I do. Fabulous staff and care taken to everything. Pork belly quail egg and scallop appetizer was amazing.

We've been here several times, and never had a bad dish. They gladly make substitutions, are always friendly, and know their food! Their wait staff's suggestions are always spot on, so trust them!

We always look forward to eating at Dockside! It's absolutely our very favorite in Olympia, and its food, staff and ambiance are above reproach. We trust the wait staff to recommend the best wine pairing with our dinners and we're never disappointed. Their seafood martini is my special favorite! The Dockside's stand our entrees include a unique Bacon, Lettuce and Salmon sandwich, and all salmon dishes. Also, the view on the Percival Cove and marina are literally stunning. Why would you eat at a chain restaurant when you have this gem in Olympia? We love Dockside!

The food we ate last night was so so tasty and the local wine...amazing, the only complaint was the size of the portions, far too big for us........
