Beautiful wedding venue
We had a small wedding of 35 people and we were struggling to find a venue with a water view that would accommodate our small group. I reached out to Heather at Dockside and she said it wouldn't be a problem. We had our wedding on a Thursday and used their private room in the restaurant for our reception. We stayed at the guest quarters and had our wedding on the lawn, before moving over for the cocktail hour and reception. Everything went very smoothly and I had no worries. Heather was helpful and always there to answer questions and ease my mind. The guests were all happy with their dinners and said the venue was beautiful.Sent on 10/25/2019

Perfect place to stay!
Dockside Guest Quarters has a beautifully maintained property and great views! We got married at Dockside Restaurant and rented out all of the rooms in the Maine House, along with many others for family. Having the house and property right at the venue was priceless. The staff was very gracious to let many of us hang out there after and have lawn games spread out. The Maine House is well maintained and has so much character. Thank you again!Sent on 08/02/2019

We had our wedding at Dockside and it was PERFECT for us! Heather is a gem, and was there helping us every step of the way. They were so flexible, and quick to respond. We were able to bring in our own cake, and set up the reception and ceremony space that morning. The food was outstanding, and the price was great. We really enjoyed how easy going they were, and how clear the pricing was. We added on an outdoor bar, and that went over really well! Our wedding was exactly as we imagined it because of how Dockside handled things - I 100% recommend hosting your wedding at Dockside, you won't regret it.Sent on 09/11/2019
The Dockside Restaurant on York Harbor is a quintessential Maine location for your wedding reception. Nestled in a working harbor location on the York River, it is a treat for locals and visiting guests that have never been to Maine. The opportunity to have the backdrop of the York River for your ceremony and wedding photos is sure to bring back the best memories of the day. I have been delivering to the Dockside for over a decade, and know Phil and his staff well. They are attentive and professional. The well maintained interior of the restaurant reflects the location with a modern subtle nautical theme. A solid choice for your wedding reception.
The Dockside Restaurant is a perfect venue for that couple who wants a wedding that is relaxed but organized, a beautiful location that can accommodate small and large parties, they can provide beautiful indoor and outdoor locations in case of weather, and the food and service is wonderful. It is the perfect venue for the couple who wants to host family from out of town with on-site accommodations - overlooking the ocean!!! It is one of my very favorite locations to photograph weddings at for all these reasons and more. Honestly, if I were to marry my husband again, this is the location I would choose.
The Dockside Restaurant is a fabulous venue for a wedding celelbration. Management treats their clients very well and the cuisine is excellent. Dennis LaPlante is the head chef and can do anything with food that your heart desires. The view speaks for itself. Our company has done over 300 weddings at the Dockside and we can say that you and your guests will be quite impressed!
