Dockside seems like a pretty typical diner - it’s a casual space with counter seats and a few booths, and it has a big menu with about 20 types of omelets, as well as sandwiches ranging from grilled cheese to one with Cajun mahi-mahi. But the simple-sounding food is all excellent, and it’s right on the water, so if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to watch paddleboarders fall into the bay as you eat your cinnamon roll pancakes.
