Dockside Deli changes berths
MOORESVILLE A reader emailed Dining Out to ask what happened to Dockside Deli & Catering after it closed last year near the N.C. 150 bridge.
Owner Rita Deal reopened in December in the former Legend's space in the Mooresville Gateway center at I-77 Exit 33.
Deal said the new location is larger and brought her a more year-round crowd compared with the more seasonal business at her former site at Lake Norman. Deal operated there for 61/2 years but said her new location has been far better for business.
She continues to serve what she did at her former location, including her signature Reubens, chicken salad and Denver melt, which includes ham, turkey, roast beef, bacon and provolone cheese on a hoagie.
The menu offers various appetizers, salads, sandwiches and specialty sandwiches. Selections are $7.50 and under.
Dockside also offers foods to go, in two, four and eight servings. Foods to go include Deal's casseroles, fresh salads and homemade breads, cookies, cakes and pies.
The restaurant also sells boxed lunches and assorted sandwich, vegetable, fruit, meat-and-cheese and other party trays.
Dockside also has acoustic music on Friday nights. Mooresville Mayor Chris Montgomery performed last Friday.
