Overall the food was good. We ordered the large fried oyster platter and cheese grits both were good and the portions were large. My husband ordered a burger because they don't offer popcorn shrimp on the dinner menu. The service was friendly, although it did seem as though the wait for food took awhile. Ordered a special cocktail from their... More

Our server was great, she had a great attitude and was really knowledgeable of the menu! I ordered steamed oysters and my friend ordered crab cake. Well, 30 min into our visit, I find out they are out of oysters, UGH! So I ordered the coconut shrimp, which was good. Orange marmalade was great! My friend's crab cake was really... More

All our means had way too much salt to our liking. Even the cucumber salad was over salted. Price too steep for the quality. Very nice sunset view however..suggest have a drink only.

On my last two trips to the area, I have gone to Dockside. To be honest, the food is forgettable to me, though my girlfriend LOVES the fried pickles. I got an baked oyster dish there one time where it was cooked in a muffin tin like thing and it was wonderful. This time I got oysters baked with cheese... More

We stopped in for a drink and enjoyed some appetizers. The live music and evening breeze were wonderful. Service was quite pleasant.

Hadn't been in a couple years. Expanded outside deck is awesome! Tall oversized chairs with drink holders built in facing out over the beautiful harbor view. Grouper sandwich was huge! Fish was fresh and food was nice and hot! I didn't really check notice price maybe $14 and change but well worth it for quality. "Locals" must expect business to... More

The view was great. owner came over at one time to ask about our food and he appeared to be drunk and had just left a terrible argument with an employee who seem to be in control and humble. Then...
