My husband & I go here for special occasions. The food is wonderful, especially the fish dinners. The beer & ale on tap also tingle the palette...and on the water at John Wayne Marina...

You need to have the whole act together when you charge this much. And I'm afraid Dockside works on the basis that the view trumps everything. It is a nice view and the menu selections are ok, but... Service was slow (the place was not full). We asked a staff member for salt / pepper (none on the table). She said "sure" and continued to complete place settings for four on the adjacent table and then went and fetched the condiments. Only a minute or so, but seemed to indicate a mind set about the importance of customers.

The seafood louie was adequate, no more. Three grilled scallops, two grilled shrimp and a small pile of shredded crab meat. Just went to double-check the price and see that their web site doesn't list prices - always a bad sign. It was hovering around $20, which I remember as being high for what you got.

Vegetarians for almost 40 years. The chef made us one of the finest vegetable dinners we've ever had. We have been on many cruise lines and been personally attended to by the head chef on board ship. So we are very spoiled! This chef knows how to make great vegetables.
The view is very nice overlooking a small marina. The head waiter is exceptional.
Speak with the chef and ask if will make a special vegetable only dish just for you.

The location was great, but the price of the food was a little too high for what we actually got. Also, the service seemed slow for a weekend lunch time.

The food was very good. The oysters on the half shell were outstanding. Soups came on time, but salad was late (but house dressing was outstanding). For an entree, husband and I both had a special including both salmon & crabmeat. Salmon was cooked as we requested (medium rare), but arrived with the wrong sides (potato instead of polenta...maybe server didn't hear us...it's a little loud in there). Still, entree was very good. Dessert was berries - a perfect finish. Good wine list (NOTE: $15 corkage fee if you bring your own). Excellent view, even from the "side room". No problem getting a wheelchair in. Servers were great. Only downside...the decor is old and could use a thorough cleaning.
