The very best part of Dockside is its location on Torch Lake. Be prepared to wait fir outside dining. Walking down the peninsula to the lake is a good way to pass the time while waiting. We both had the fish tacos of perch with...More

Always a fun place to grab a drink and a quick bite to eat. Very casual laid back beach wear and flip flop place. Food is good. Service fast and friendly.

Whenever we're in town we love to stop in at Dockside whether it's via boat or car. The atmosphere is so laid back and we don't even mind sitting inside when there's no outside seating. It just feels like you're on vacation. The food is...More

We sat outside for lunch, watched the boats go by. A few people had their boats docked by the restaurant. Food was good and reasonably priced. Would recommend this restaurant to those out on the water as a nice stop.

This is a mostly local venue and the only deck seating on Torch Lake. Good food and pretty good service for a busy bar. Have a deep fried dill Spears. Delicious! Great views and local beers and wine.

If you ever wanted to eat on the water, this is your place. Their cheese burgers are unbelievable and the service is great considering it is always busy inside and on the outside dining areas.

First stop for beverages and appetizers. They had good lady foo-foo drinks and deep fried pickles with ham. Nice stop and great outdoor deck.

Our family always enjoy eating at Dockside when we go north to boat on Torch Lake. We love the food and sitting on the deck watching all the boats go by. I would like to suggest to the owners that they add some additional shade...More
