Had a bacon cheeseburger and onion rings which were fantastic. Prices aren't bad and you can sit and eat your food while looking at the lake.

Go there often, it is fun and friendly! The food is always good and so is the service ! The deck is great, sunsets, entertaining boat traffic and a great spot to see friends and hang out! I highly recommend the Dockside!!

While it does have the very best location of any lake bar ever, the menu and food isn't anything out of the ordinary. Mind you, that's not a bad thing - but it is what it is: a typical bar and grill.

My experience at Dockside has always been in the summer and by boat. There has always been a lot of activity, but never too long of a wait. I would come for the people/boat watching and "lake atmosphere", but not the food. Don't expect more...More

Stopped here for dinner and the food was great. We were a group of four and the food came out in a reasonable time. The chicken tenders, sweet potato fries, regular burger and onion rings were fantastic. Service was good. Lots of TVs for watching...More
