what happened to.....

I used to go to Cocoa Beach/Merritt Island Fla. from 1986-1992. We used to eat at a restaurant called Dockside. You could watch the dolphins, eat shrimp cocktail and drink mismosa for brunch. What happened to this place? did it get renamed? is it closed?

You can do that in the Port. Look at Grills, Fish Lips, Rusty's, Seafood Atlantic, Millikens, etc., etc.

If they haven't changed things since they were hit by Matthew last year, Fish Lips actually has a mimosa brunch.

I was proposed to at Gatsby's Dock Side😍. Our excited server brought us the staffing calendar so we could set our date. The places at the port pale in comparison to Dock Side, Desparados, Wolfies, Alma's, Pelican Point and Benard's Surf. These places live on in my memory.

FIsh Lips still has their mimosa brunch, it was advertised when we were there earlier this month.

Great view from restaurants at the Port. Grill's is one of my favorites.

Enjoy.

Hi, Dockside & Gatsby's closed yrs ago. They are now The Sunset Grille & Florida's Seafood (a step in the wrong direction IMHO).

Sunset Grille and Florida Seafood are great places to watch the dolphins on the river. I have been there several times and love it.
