Now onto the food....I myself had ordered the classic eggs benny. When the plate arrived, I could tell that the poached eggs were overcooked. So I did the ol cutting into the egg routine to see if there would be any yolks streaming down. Well, nothing. Perfectly solid. Long story short, this happened to more than one of our orders. I believe it was sent back about four times.
The rest of the food items...can't really say too much as I didn't try them. But the overall impression I got was that the food was mediocre at best.
Another thing was the price. I really felt that a lot of the items were severely overpriced. Take for example the Belgian Waffles (3 pieces) for $15. Any local foodies will know that Cafe Medina serves one of the best waffles around town. Matter of fact, for that same price ($15), you can actually get 5 pieces at Cafe Medina. I haven't done a post on Cafe Medina yet, but those waffles are to die for! They have to be the best waffles I've ever had. Be sure to order a side topping when your there. My favorite is the raspberry caramel.
Losing focus now...back on track. So the question is this: when most of you go out to eat, do you only care about the food? KimHo will probably tell you so. Or do you care about everything else such as the ambiance (i.e. patio) and service?
Anyways, back to Dockside. Overall, I felt that the food was mediocre at best. The service could have been better. Would I return? Probably not. Would I recommend you try it? Well, only if you really like patio seating and don't care much for the food and value.
Before I forget, we went here to celebrate some birthdays. Apparently they were gonna charge us $2 per head for a cake fee if we were to have brought our own cake...
