I cannot recommend Dockside highly enough! My husband and I booked a fall off-season wedding and the usually gorgeous venue was even more spectacular with the fall foliage! It was a dream come true, and Phil and his team were superb, very responsive and professional and ensured that we had a day that we would cherish for a lifetime!

When we started looking for venues we knew we might have some issues - as we wanted something different from the normal ceremony/reception. We wanted to be on the ocean/by the water, be outside the entire time, no tent, have an entirely passed meal, no sit down/buffet meal & lots of lawn games. When we met with Heather from the Dockside she was completely open to the idea and worked with us to make a perfect passed meal menu & create the day we wanted. They even let us have our dogs there with us (which was one of our sticking points) - as long as they were outside with us the whole time. Weeks later everyone is still raving about the food and how great the staff was. They truly helped to make our day exactly what we wanted & something we will always remember. I would definitely recommend the Dockside for any type of wedding - they were great and easy to work!

Top notch venue for our wedding! Everyone and everything was perfect. Phil is easily accessible for planning purposes and flexible when it came to doing what we wanted to make it “our day” and not just another wedding.
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!
