The approach to Dockside Restaurant brings you over the York River Bridge, to the west you will see Sewall’s Bridge, a treasured colonial land mark and to the east; York Harbor. Magnificent “summer cottages” dot the coast while lobster boats, bottom draggers, tuna rigged harpoon boats and private yachts of every description ply the harbor’s waters.

Your guests can be entertained with hors d oeuvres and drinks on the restaurant’s lawn overlooking York Harbor. Following your gathering, your guests will make their way past our lovely gardens on their way to the Deckroom in the Dockside Restaurant.

The Deckroom has a maximum seating capacity of 64 guests, seated at 6 linen draped round tables. The view from the Deckroom is quintessential Maine, boats, docks, wildlife and people just enjoying the boating life. The Deckroom is intimate and therefore not suitable for DJ’s or bands, background music is played through our house system while you enjoy your guests company.

We also have a second area for a semi-private gathering with a maximum of 24 guests, seated at 2 rectangular tables overlooking York Harbor.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment to see these dining options and discuss all your parties’ details.
