Situated in a hidden Cove in York Harbor...this restaurant is totally unique in that it has location & ambience with nice food. A very pleasant dining experience. If you can find it, you'll love it & go again.

We had a large group of 14 for dinner and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Our server, Maddie, was a delight. The food was excellent - the view of the harbor is lovely.

good food and nice views, but stuff not nice. I think waitress was having a bad night. I might give it another try.

A table inside as the sun set, and the harbour side lights came on. An enjoyable meal with prompt and friendly service from Nicole. Seafood of all varieties on offer, along with tempting desserts.

The approach to the Dockside Restaurant is all part of the Dockside’s charm. You are treated to views of the York River and the grand “summer cottages” as you turn onto Harris Island Road to reach Dockside Restaurant. The view is quintessential Maine, people hustling up and down the docks, gleaming yachts and colorful lobster boats in front of a rock and pine-tree shore. Dockside’s recent renovation is perfect, warm and comfortable. Hardwood floors, European style lighting floor to ceiling window and a new mahogany bar with an adjoining outdoor cocktail deck. During warm months seating is available on our harbor view screen porch. The atmosphere is casual but the food is serious. Chef Dennis la Planet has been recognized as a “chef’s chef”. North Atlantic seafood prepared with a northern Italian influence and aged steaks are just the start. Lunch features organic salads, creative sandwiches and traditional favorites; fish and chips, chowders and fried clams too.
