I took all of my site supervisors to Dockside for a meet and greet dinner party. I've had better seafood at Captain D's. My oyster poboy had room temperature, previously frozen oysters on it, sub par tomatoes, and wilted lettuce. No one else seemed to like what they ordered either. Do yourself and the community a favor and go out... More

When Dockside first opened at its original location, at the Northlight Marina, their food was spectacular. They had good happy hour specials. The service was fair...never good. But the food was really fantastic. But after a year or so the quality of the food began to suffer. And the service never improved. When Dockside moved to its current location they... More

The Bienville baked oysters are the bomb! I hit up 4 other seafood restaurants in the area and these guys win the prize for the best food, drink, and waterside ambiance.

Here's the deal.... You want to go eat some fresh fish on the water, you figure anyone lucky enough to have an establishment like this would offer delicious fresh fish. Well don't go here. Save your money. It's over priced and all cooked the same.

Good gulf seafood in classic NW Fla styles and in Louisiana styles as well. The new location has significantly more room than the old one.

Ordered steam oysters but they were served cold, so we sent them back and paid an additional $4.00. When they were served the second time they were luke warm. When we asked for a refund Sabrina the supposed manager , said "no, you got what your ordered" she was rude and totally disrespectful . Never be spending my money there... More

We were here on a Sunday evening. There were not a lot of tables filled. Everyone at the table was happy with our food. The service was slow and our drinks sat empty more than full.
