Dockers Bayside Grille’s Grilled Chicken Sandwich and Chips
Some restaurants are just funner to visit, aren’t they? Something about the experience (whether or not you can actually put your finger on the reason) just feels right. Dockers Bayside Grille (at Green Turtle Bay in Grand Rivers, Ky) is exactly this sort of place for us. It’s fun, it’s friendly, and it’s always ridiculously delicious.
I’ve written quite a few reviews of Dockers on Genuine Kentucky – always a good sign that it’s a personal favorite.
A Few of these reviews:
Dockers Bayside Grille – Mac Daddy of All Onion Rings (the onion rings have changed since this review was written, but they’re still pretty darn good)
When we found out that Dockers had reopened for the season, we went as soon as we possibly could – as in right away. I was set to order one of their delicious wraps with onion rings (something of an obsession of mine) when I saw the three magic letters: BLT. At that moment in time, nothing but nothing in this world sounded better than a BLT, so I went that route. When the server (extra friendly like all Dockers servers) asked if I’d like “chips” with that, for some reason that sounded ideal too.
Besides, I can always hook up with the onion rings on the next trip. And the next.. and the next.. and the next..
You have to understand, “chips” at Dockers doesn’t mean the kind that come in bags – they’re not the kind of chips that leave your fingers greasy and salty. Dockers chips are made in house and are crunchy and out of this world. No grease. No saltiness. No bag.
I knew the BLT would be great, because everything at Dockers is great, but I didn’t know it’d be BLT perfection.
Holy cats, that was a great BLT!
Honestly, if I were to dream up the ideal BLT, it would be just like this one was: The fresh, perfectly toasted bread was buttery and the bacon was cooked just the way I like it – not overly done, but not “fatty” either. Even the lettuce and tomato were on point. That’s a culinary miracle for this time of year.
The chips were excellent as well – crisp and yummy, a great sidekick for the star of the show, the awesome BLT.
Michael ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and chips. The grilled chicken was amazing – so much flavor! It was topped with Swiss cheese, sauteed onion and green pepper, and (again) lettuce and tomato that thought it was July instead of February. He said it was the best sandwich he’s ever had at Dockers – which is really saying something since the boy has had every one on the menu. I took a bite and have to agree that it was phenomenal.
Each of our sandwiches and chips came with yummy pickles too – a touch I always love.
In hindsight, I wish I’d “opened” one of my BLT’s halves before taking it’s picture. You can’t even see how juicy and delicious the bacon was! In my defense, I was just in a big hurry to dive into the sandwich.
Oh, shucks. I guess we’ll have to go back soon so I can take another picture. Hmmm, I need a recent picture of onion rings too…
Dockers Bayside Grille is located at Green Turtle Bay Resort & Marina in beautiful Grand Rivers, Kentucky. Green Turtle Bay has GORGEOUS condos, boat rentals, and a Commonwealth Yacht Club (for dinners). Dockers is THE place to eat breakfast or lunch in the area (or, better yet, breakfast AND lunch!). You don’t have to be a guest at Green Turtle Bay to dine at Docker’s – you just have to enjoy delicious food and friendly people.
I hope you’ll go as soon as possible. Odds are we’ll see you there.
