Truth in advertising is a rare commodity today. How many BrewPubs actually brew anything? Does a joint that calls itself a Cookhouse really us a microwave more than a flame? Are the meals that you pay good money for actually "made from scratch" or just glorified pre-prepared frozen food products served freezer to fryer with no actual cooking involved? Sadly yes, this is today's restaurant industry where speed and consistency are way more important than fresh prepared in the quest to greet, seat, serve, and say goodbye to patrons as quickly as possible. "Turning Tables" is the road to prosperity in the causal dining market segment. In other industries, speed and efficiency are improtant to getting a particular job done. But when that job is done, and it is time to relax, The Dockside Bar and Grill is here for you to enjoy actual hospitality and a relaxed experience. Basically, a well deserved short vacation to the lake. Our venue has been serving this purpose for literally decades, and untill someone shows us a better way to improve our authentic pub experience, that is how things will continue.
Welcome to the Dockside Bar and Grill. There is only one Dockside, unique to Chestermere, and not just another windowless restaurant full of big screen TVs. A bonafide, sit where you want, stand if you like, talk to someone you have never met before, authentic Public House. We make no apologies for the fact that The Dockside is Adults Only, as it has been since Chestermere Landing was constructed in 1979. Our Marina, Ice Cream Bar, Event Spaces, and winter skating rinks on the lake are all spots that welcome families to visit and enjoy at Chestermere Landing, but the Dockside remains the place for adult friendly socializing. Like a mini-vacation, it may be short and close to home, but a little time away from the busy world relaxing by the lake is the experience that keeps locals and visitors to Chestermere returning again and again.
Take your time to relax and enjoy the simple pleasure of food and drink made for you, and served to you in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. While you look out over the lake's ever-changing waterfront views, our culinary team prepares burgers made from sctratch, hand tossed pizza from our vintage brick oven, natcho chips hand cut from fresh tortillas, and all other manner of in-house made meals to make your visit to our lakeside location as tasty and filling as it is scenic and social.
