We love the beautiful Torch Lake area and usually head to Dockside for their special bigger deal off season. 2.00 burgers and 2.00 beers. Everyone local is there and it's good eating and a beautiful view.

Fun atmosphere! Restaurant was kept clean. Food and drinks were good and pretty fairly priced. Loved sitting on the patio and being able to look out at the lake and watch the boats entering and leaving the river. Look forward to going back!
