Great deck with views of the lake and river inlet. Watch the boats go by from the deck as well. The wait staff is excellent but the food is just average at best, Nothing is made fresh but I have been told the pulled pork...More

I am a big fan of their fish tacos. The view is amazing. I have visted several times and always had good service.

We were here on a rainy cold day but we still sat outside so we could view the lake. We waited quite awhile before a server even came to our table. After he took our order though it was fine I had the bbq pork...More

Great place to eat on Torch Lake. We hit it at least twice every trip. The Daredevil Burger is one of my favorites anywhere. The only downside is they cook all their burgers well done. Also, an order of fries is $4 so don't assume...More

We had an amazing time renting a pontoon from Dockside. Both Alexis and Gordy, were so amazingly helpful towards us. They showed us the ins and outs of operating the boat and made sure we felt extra comfortable driving the boat. The weather started off...More

This probably isn't the place for you if you're looking for great food but if you'll settle for a big plate of nachos or a cool,Torch Lake Lemonade, you won't be disappointed. A seat on the deck overlooking beautiful Torch Lake is worth the usual...More

You really can't visit Torch Lake and skip this spot. Inside dining you are surrounded by knotty pine, a richly varnished bar, arcade games and beer lights and signs. Outside enjoy the boats as they parade into Torch Lake from the river. Typical bar and...More

The Dockside has indoor/outdoor seating. It is located on Clam River between Torch and Clam Lakes. If you are seated outside, you can watch the boats travel the river between the two lakes. The food is good. It's just a beautiful place to have lunch...More

The venue is of course the best part. Great views of the channel and torch lake. Service was fine. They serve mostly fried overpriced food. If they revamped the menu and updated the place a bit it would be so much better.
