The Dockside has made quite an amazing turnaround. My wife and I recently had dinner there, and let me simply say wow. We walked into a quaint quiet dining room, with a fireplace and tasteful apointments, and realized we never even knew there was a dining room before. We were met promptly by a young woman named Jessica, who couldn't have been sweeter. We were already surprised by the room and the professional nature of our server, but the menu really left an impression. When I tell you I had a hard time choosing, I am not lying. I wanted to try EVERYTHING. My wife and I eventually decided on a bowl of the Key West Chowder and the pomegranate chili bbq shrimp. Once again, wow. The soup had an beautiful touch of spice, and was accented by the saltiness of the clams, and the sweetness of the corn, and the pomegranate shrimp was marvelous, coming on sweet and smokey at first and finishing with a nice touch of heat. My wife had the scallops, and let me tell you, had my shortribs fallen short of amazing there would have been a fight over them at the table ! The scallops were seared perfectly, and paired with silky truffle mashed potato. Yes, truffle mashed potato. The earthiness of the truffle was offset by the sweetness of the balsamic syrup, and the garlicky spinach. All in all a superb dish, playing on our standard concept of a surf and turf. My shortribs were prepared perfectly, succulent fall off the bone meat, garlic mashed potatoes, tender veggies and whole garlic cloves. The dish was then topped with a beautiful parsley horseradish salad that made the heavy dish seem light and refreshing. Towards the end of our meal the maitre de Armando came to check on us, and get our perspective on the new menu and changes, suffice it to say we were very very enthusiastic. There were a few other tables around, and everyone truly seemed to be enjoying their dinners and service. Had we not been too full, the bar on the way out seemed lively and entertaining. We will certainly be back soon, and with friends. Great job Dockside.
