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!

Owner Gordy has it going on here. Only dockside restaurant on Torch Lake. Excellent food, service, & price. Always a favorite for many years.

Stopped for dinner on a Saturday night. Labor Day weekend. Just as all the holiday weekend boaters were coming off the lake. They were really jumping! Despite the crush we got (barely) a table on the outside deck and had fairly prompt, efficient service. We...More

Dockside's atmosphere reminded us of a Florida waterfront restaurant. We dawdled over lunch, sitting in the sunshine, on the outside deck enjoying the view of Torch Lake in the background. The service was excellent.
