I thought all restaurants had "happy hour specials" with discounted drink prices, I was wrong. Maybe I'm spoiled by the bars on Fort Myers Beach but, $9.50 for a vodka and tonic is a little bit much.

Friendly and attentive staff, but the food falls far short. The sauces are off and some of the sides with the entrees are just strange. They cannot even make a decent Margarita! Great bayside setting. Too bad the food does not measure up.

Well we were steered to Dockside from a local. She said if you want fresh seafood on the water ,this is the place. Great service and well presented food. Salad was okay but seafood was deliscous . A definite return in the future.

If you are looking for over priced food, small drinks all serviced with a bad attitude then look no further. The staff was rude, the food average to poor and the prices are crazy. The view is nice.

We stumbled on this little dockside restaurant and were really pleasantly surprised. We got a waterside table over looking the marina, and had great service from our server Grant. The area is also lovely with a few small galleries, shops and restaurants. A must try! Beats the crowds of 5th Ave!
