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.

We celebrated my recent birthday dinner here with friends and family that totaled 10 in number. The restaurant/inside dining area was basically empty almost the entire time we were there...maybe two or three other tables and yet we were placed kind of in a corner where it was difficult for the server to get behind some chairs for drink refilling...

This address is wrong, they are now at 821 Bayshore Drive, Niceville, Florida 32578. The old Giuseppi's building next to Lion's park. A good restaurant, clean, comfortable, good food, a nice crowd of people, and an excellent view. Prices can be a bit spendy for a night of beer and wings with the guys, but always a great time. Everything... More

This is not the place. Unprepared for a Memorial Weekend, no shrimp or oysters. The little neck clams were beyond overcooked, the fried craw fish salad was unimpressive, and the craw fish boil was just sad. The craw fish were very small, and the special offered boiled corn that was not included on the tray. Asked the server and she... More

Stopped by the Dockside for dinner and our group was met by the chef and owner who gave us a detailed description of the menu and recommendations for dinner entrees. Our group sampled the catfish, the redfish, fresh oysters, and the grouper. No one left hungry and we all thought the food was pretty good. The view of the harbor... More

My husband loved the beer options at this place in the previous location, but I wasn't thrilled that most things on the menu were fried, and the salads were very lackluster. We gave them a try at this new location primarily because we think the owner/chef is a really good guy. It was a Friday night and the place was... More
