We had a fairly late dinner here and enjoyed the meal a lot. Fresh fish and excellent clam chowder. The service was outstanding and the manager extremely friendly and humorous. The place was packed, but things move along very nicely. No delays and no problems. We'll be back.

I have eaten here four times on two separate visits to Morro Bay. The oysters are my favorite. They are large and cooked with garlic and butter....Yum!! You can dine indoors or at their patio location next door. They offer a good selection for both seafood and land lubbers. My friend had the Tri-Tip sandwich and said it was also... More

I had oysters on the half shell and a cold draft beer. At $10.95 for a half dozen the oysters were big, fresh and tasty. They had several craft beers on tap and mine went well with the oysters.

My husband and I love this place. We live in Orange County, CA., but each year, we try to take a road trip up the coast. Very romantic. We always stop in Morro Bay. There are a few awesome restaurants in Morro Bay, and this little place is one of them. Its a gem. They usually have live music in... More

I ordered the pineapple burger at $12. Kind of pricey, but I figured what the heck! It was my only restaurant meal of the day. The burger was HUGE! And quite tasty. An accompanying salad was almost five bucks, but at least the ingredients were fresh and flavorful. So, counting the tip I got out of there for about $22... More

Just looking for food that makes me want more but it wasn't found here. Ok fresh halibut in dill sauce which was baked in tarter sauce with Parmesan cheese top. Not worth the calories in my book. Veggie appetizer was interesting and good.

Nothing like living in a resort to know where all the good food is. Dockside is among the best. Their fish and chips are decent but the catch of the day is worth the money and pricing isn't too bad. Come early if you want to get a seat. They work hard to keep you happy and the Tognazzini family... More

Very good fish and their daily special is excellent. Good selection on entrees. The waitstaff is always friendly and accommodating. The ambience is not impressive, but the restaurant is clean. If you want something fancy, go elsewhere. If you want excellent food, at reasonable prices and good service, this is an excellent option. We go here regularly and have not... More
