Profile Last Updated: December 22, 2008
Located inside the Granville Island Hotel, the Dockside Brewing Company is the place to kick back and relax. The expansive dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows looks out over False Creek and is well known for its 50-foot-long aquarium fronting an open kitchen with a flaming wood burning oven. (Don’t worry – the fish are separated from the heat by a counter.) On sunny days, the rear patio is open, creating a great space to enjoy barbecued dishes, pizza, and pasta with a big glass of Dockside’s own beer. The intimate, clubby-feeling lounge is open in the evenings and features live entertainment regularly.
Inspired by the Sea
Dockside Restaurant serves a wide variety of dishes, so there is something for every taste. Seafood is a given – try a classic grilled wild salmon or Pacific halibut roasted in the wood-burning oven. From only slightly further afield, the restaurant also serves Gulf Islands-raised lamb and free-range chicken from the Fraser Valley. For lighter appetites and snacks, elegant pub fare is served throughout the day and evening to complement the daily drink specials, wines by the glass, and eight special brews on tap.
Party on Granville Island
Dockside often creates special menus and hosts events for holidays and festivals, such as the Jazz Festival. The lounge and restaurant spaces of the Dockside Brewing Company’s are available for hosting private events. Depending on the number of people, you can reserve a private dining room, one of the two sections overlooking the patio and harbour, or the entire restaurant dining room. But as for the patio, the Dockside Brewing Company leaves it open to anyone who wishes to come on by. On one of those rare Vancouver sunny days, skip out on work, take a walk down the boardwalk, and bring the party.
