The greatest asset of the Dockside Restaurant and Brewing Company -- besides its friendly and well-trained staff -- is its fabulous location. Nestled in the boutique Granville Island Hotel, Dockside combines the two features Vancouver is most famous for: stunning views and spectacular food. Chef Simon McNeil combines fresh seasonal ingredients, on his seafood focused menu, with an uncomplicated execution that is sure to astound the most discerning food critic. Winemaker and Master Brewer Peter Haupenthal, boasting more than 23 years of experience, offers eight unique hand-crafted beers. Wine lovers will be equally content gazing at the Vancouver cityscape and majestic North Shore mountains over the carefully selected and well priced 150 bottle wine list. If all that isn't enough, the Golden Plates 2013 Best Patio is sure to entice as it's the perfect spot to eat, drink and visit while the boats go floating by. more...

Given its scenic waterfront locale, it’s no surprise that Dockside will be featuring spot prawns throughout the season. The award-winning open-air patio catches sunlight throughout the day (and offers cozy fireplaces for when the sun goes down), making it a dreamy spot to enjoy a bite to eat after exploring the many galleries and shops on Granville Island. Executive chef Victor Jacinto will be preparing daily spot prawn specials to showcase the versatility of these juicy jumbo shrimp. Check out Dockside’s Twitter account for updates on daily features.
