Always a great time here. Food service and the view are top notch. There is nothing like a great meal and drink as the boats go by.

A group of 12 rented a pontoon boat from Dockside Marina. People at Dockside were very friendly and paperwork for rental was a 'breeze.' The boat was clean and well maintained. "Dock Hand" was very helpful and explained boat operations and what all was on...More
