Dockside Restaurantopen Granville Island Hotel1253 Johnston St, Vancouver, BC V6H 3R9
A favourite for visiting tourists, Dockside is a sweet spot to cozy up by the waterfront while taking in the view of False Creek towards downtown. A beer-tasting flight from the on-site brewery, accompanied with something from the restaurant’s selection of Oceanwise fish and seafood, is an ideal way to while away the time while enjoying the Granville Island scenery. Fireplaces, heaters and weather-resistant sofas help extend patio season once temperatures start to drop.
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 that Vancouver is most famous for: stunning views and spectacular food. Chef Simon McNeil combines fresh seasonal ingredients on his seafood focused menu, all prepared with an uncomplicated execution that is sure to astound even the most discerning food critics. Master brewer Peter Haupenthal has hand selected eight unique craft beers while wine lovers will be equally content with the well-priced, 150-bottle wine list.
All-you-can-eat dining is on offer all day long at this beloved Granville Island brewpub. Dockside will be serving up indulgent buffet-style menus for brunch ($74.95) and dinner ($84.95) on Christmas Day, making it an ideal destination for large groups with big appetites. Start off your Christmas morning with heavenly pastries and savoury egg dishes, chilled seafood and an array of tempting desserts. If you visit for dinner, expect beautiful salads, numerous meat and seafood delights (turkey, salmon, cod, shellfish, ham, prime rib) and festive sweets. Dessert lovers of all ages will swoon over the orange-scented milk chocolate fountain.
