My wife and I try to make it to Dockside once or twice a year. Their food is always exceptional in every sense of the word, I particularly enjoy the meatloaf sandwich. The staff is usually very friendly as well.

Stopped in for a Sunday afternoon lunch. A nice spot next to Sarnia Bay Marina. Service was very quick. We sat out on the patio. It seemed shaded areas were hard to get so many spots out in the sun. Food was good. I ordered...More

There's no bad table at this seasonal restaurant. Unobstructed view of the marina from any table you sit at. Menu offers wings, quesadillas, regular restaurant fare and some Mexican choices. Lovely place to go with friends and have a glass of vino to boot.

Standard breakfast menu offerings were good but nothing special. Staff was OK but again, not particularly friendly or welcoming. Decor seemed dated. Outside of windows was filthy and the remains of shadflies were all over window ledges.

Amazing location right on the water, absolutely awesome patio. We had fantastic, fast, friendly service. My new all time favorite breakfast, lobster eggs benny (MUST TRY). It is heavenly. Best breakfast I've ever had. Can't wait to go back. Loved it!

Looked forward to sitting by the water on a recent visit but no room, so was seated below. Looks like they just threw a few extra tables below to allow more outside seating. As usual the interior, which resembles a diner was empty as everyone...More

We decided to bring some out-of town guests here for dinner. We thought that it would be nice to have dinner by the water and I had read that they had updated their menu with some new options. I didn't see any new options and...More
