We had a nice family dinner right after Dish opened for the season. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. The food was good. The menu had recently changed and some favorites were no longer on it. Some of us had hoped for more seafood options. Such a lovely location with a beautiful view from every table!

DishDB, Manager at DISH At Dover Bay, responded to this review

Susan~ Thank you for your feedback, Susan. Please accept our apology for the limited seafood menu items. We wanted to do more seafood specials over the course of the summer instead of permanent menu fixtures. I'll let chef know, and thanks for bringing the family out. Have a wonderful summer. More

If the food were as tasty as the view is fine, I could happily recommend Dish. But the food is disappointingly ordinary. My ahi salad was not quite edible. The fish was flavorless and the greens were drowned in dressing. This was our second visit here. The first was a better experience, so we might give Dish another chance sometime.

We had a reservation and got a table "on the rail" which gave us a wonderful view of the lake out on the deck. While the server seemed a little distracted (beyond it just being busy - she never did bring the hot sauce), dining at Dish was a pleasant experience. The food was outstanding. My husband and I shared... More

Salmon, fish & other meat dishes should be kept on ice. Fish smell everywhere while serving my salad, pastries, and other dishes. French toast was dry & tough. Should be made fresh as it is served. Fly's are a major problem for the restaurant. Bloody Marys were good. Buffet is over priced for what variety is served. We are local... More

Dish remains a terrific place to eat despite heavy competition. We drove over today for lunch. The weather was perfect so we sat outside. The food was, as always, amazing. I elected to have the couscous salad which was delicious. The portion was so large that I took half of it home for dinner. Two in our group ordered the... More

We went to dinner here one night while staying at Estate on the Lake B&B. The food was excellent and the service was good with a lovely view of the lake and marina. Would definitely recommend it if you are in the area.

from the fresh salmon and beat salad, to the daily special that had a fresh made huckleberry sauce - the food was excellent. Sitting outside was great.
