Default Dockside

Four of us went by boat to the Dockside restaurant in Alton Bay last night. Food was fantastic and portions were big! Service was also excellent! We were entertained by a fantastic guitar player, Tim Theriault.

It was a beautiful, calm, full moon boat ride home to Welch Island!

We will definitely return!

Kudos to the Dockside!

Dan

Default Alton Public docks

Dock at the Alton Public Docks and then walk over to the Dockside restaurant. About a 5 minute walk or so.

Bonus: Stop at Stillwell's for ice cream on the way back to the boat.

Walking, as in using one's feet to go somewhere.

Is that still done?

Maybe the Alton Uber could give you a Lyft, if it wouldn't be too taxi-ng on the wallet.

We've been a few times this year! It's very good, and they have had some good music on a Friday night also.

Actually, No. It's just a feet-ure of speech. OK, OK. They can't all be winners.

Friends! You probs all know how big a fan of Pop's I am, well today we had occasion to drive to south Wolfeboro and, in looking for a new restaurant to grab lunch, decided on Dockside.

It. Was. AWESOME. The best fried seafood I've had in a very, very long timeómaybe ever. My kids' mozzarella sticks and my wife's burger were also highly rated.

I'm so glad we gave this a shotónext time y'all are around, give it a go!

Yes, right across the bridge from the public docks.

Oh, and the pricing is very reasonable!

There is, but this is the new place in Alton. Says it in the first comment, but that was a while ago. Sorry for the confusion.

We ate there last Sunday night and thought it was really pretty good. The bill was very reasonable. We'll go back

No, many are the same including $19 for the salmon dinner that I had yesterday.

In general restaurant prices will have to increase. There is a shortage of help so wages will have to increase in order to attract good workers and the cost of supplies has gone up.

I'm not sure when exactly the prices increased, but here's an older menu.

I'm expecting prices to increase a bit, but that's 30%. Pop's seafood plate looks like it's the same or less than a dollar increase over last year.Name:  20180819845_02.jpg

If you look at the new menu you'll see they added RI clam cakes to the Live Free or Fry meal. I'm sure this accounts for some of the prices increase.

Prices are going up everywhere, and businesses have no choice but to pass it along.

I seriously doubt there will be any slow down in inflation for a while. Politics and fear and draconian responses to the pandemic have created countless problems.

I recently saw 2 x 4 selling for just under $10, when the last one I bought was $2.77. Gasoline went up 80 cents in 2 months and is still climbing. So this all must impact the food industry.

Hmmm...you may be right. I remember being surprised to find them on my plate one of the last times I visited. I'd gladly hold the cakes to save eight beans.

Spot on. In addition, people have to realize that this may be the owner's only source of income. After all expenses, including State of NH Business Enterprise Tax, Business Profits Tax, and Federal Income Tax, the restaurant owner may have a few crumbs left to put food on his own table. With the path we're currently on, it's only going to get worse before it gets better. People that can't afford, or don't want to pay these inevitable restaurant price increases better develop a taste for Taco Bell.

Yeah that would probably be way to much for you to eat anyway

BTW, we don't consider the Dockside as competition to Pop's. If you want fried clams around here you go to Pop's. The Dockside is sit down and be waited on for a nice meal and a craft beer.

Ummmm...yeah, totally too much.
In all honesty, last time I thought "gee, I'm kinda too full to eat those things..." and then ate one.

They're both sit-down for me, one while stopping at the docks for lunch, the other for when we drive around the lake.

Taco Bell?

Perish the thought.

No, just kick up your cooking game a bit and eat at home.

Try something new just to keep things interesting.

Used to love the menu, food and service at old Dockside.
New Dockside looks much better, but that’s where it ends. Menu is different, portion sizes are much smaller for $$$ and service sucks.

Plenty of better places to eat, I done with them!!!

Really?! How long do you think this has been going on? The last time we were there, in fall, it was awesome.
