We stopped by for a quick snack as we read great reviews and were staying up the road. A quick snack turned into a huge lobster roll lunch with the best chowder! The waitress was really nice and it had a great atmosphere.

We stopped here on our way from Camden into New Hampshire....the setting is quaint, with a nice view of Middle Range Pond. Eat upstairs if the weather is not warm enough....the homemade Clam Chowder will warm your insides!! Try a "Not Your Father's Root Beer"...More

Relax with us at the Dockside in a lakeside setting on Middle Range Pond on the Route 26 causeway. Wholesome food served in a setting that is like an oasis. The most friendly staff with an environment filled with laughter and warmth. A menu that includes daily specials, delicious appetizers, sandwiches, Harvest Hill Farm’s burgers, lobster, seafood (Try the Haddock basket – delicious!), chicken, steak dinners and our delicious desserts. Your family will love it!
