We met our friends there before heading out on the lake. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. It is nice to have a place where you can dock your boat and enjoy some food.

We just stopped for a beverage and to enjoy the beautiful view. Service was good, they were busy but handled it well.

Simple menu, but lots of fun items to order. The view from the Deck on the sores of Torch Lake is a must see in itself. The food is a bonus!

If you are looking for a place to eat excellent food while sitting by a beautiful lake, visit Dockside. The perch sandwich, fish tacos, and burgers are excellent. Substitute the onion rings for a treat. Service was fast and friendly. Glad we found this place.

Had a bacon cheeseburger and onion rings which were fantastic. Prices aren't bad and you can sit and eat your food while looking at the lake.

Go there often, it is fun and friendly! The food is always good and so is the service ! The deck is great, sunsets, entertaining boat traffic and a great spot to see friends and hang out! I highly recommend the Dockside!!

While it does have the very best location of any lake bar ever, the menu and food isn't anything out of the ordinary. Mind you, that's not a bad thing - but it is what it is: a typical bar and grill.
