We stayed in an apartment on Lorimer Street and this place was right underneath our balcony so it was only natural we step inside for some breakfast. The food was amazing, the coffee perfect and the service was wonderful. Betty and Elle were an example of great customer service. Thanks guys.

Not many places that you eat out at can do equally well as a cafe, bar and restaurant but Loading Dock Bar & Grill does well as a cafe-bar-restaurant even though its name is focused on being a bar-restaurant. Thinking of something for lunch in the Yarra's Edge area? The paninis and wraps offered by this place tick the boxes... More

This little restaurant at the quiet end of Docklands seems to cater mainly for residents in the nearby residential towers. Decor and service is non-descript, but the meals were a real surprise. Calamari was delicious and my eye fillet steak was perfectly cooked. Always good to be surprised by outstanding cooking.

This Restuarant is set beside the Harbour at the Docklands and is a very relaxing place to enjoy either brunch, lunch or dinner! The food here is generally of a good standard , the soup, dips, Caesar salad and pasta dishes are delicious , the seafood spaghetti is my Favourite and the portion is generous and seafood not over cooked!...

Loading Dock provides a welcoming venue with great food and a place to relax whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or perhaps a beverage after a hard day or an occasion with friends.

My group of friends and I are frequent customers of Loading Dock until today. Two weeks ago, we were there for lunch and stayed until 4:15pm before we paid for the bill. When I got home I realized that the fish & chips was charged on a higher price ($22.9) than the usual lunch price ($16.9) so a few days... More

Loading Dock is ideally situated riverfront at Yarra's Edge over looking the Yarra river. Loading Dock's menu is modern Australian, with excellent thin-crust pizzas, burgers from the grill and an abundance of fresh seafood, as well as exciting international dishes. This cosy place has north-facing outside tables, a small marina out front and great city views. Loading Dock is tucked away on Yarra's Edge ( the continuation west of South Wharf), over the pedestrian Webb Bridge from Docklands proper and a 10-minute stroll from the city.
