It's OK

The food was good, a bit pricey for what we got. Very nice evening to sit outside and see the water but would definitely try somewhere else in Calabash to eat.

No complaints about the service or the wait, but I know now - the food just was not good. The fish was fried extremely hard, not many menu choices. Like the subject says: won't do that again.

if you like fried food...then this is your place. I has a seafood combo with fried shrimp and founder. They were about quarter sized shrimp in a light batter that was not over powering. Both were more than I could eat. Considering I almost ordered a 3rd option, I am glad I did not. Wife had prime rib which was... More

This place looked like it might be a nice family restaurant. Wrong. Everything is fried or canned. Who serves a bowl of canned beans straight out of a can? Gross. Nothing fresh or healthy to eat here. Terrible service too--no refills, even of water?! View is good but that's the extent of it... Don't recommend unless you love average fried... More

It was nice being at a restaurant and no wait. Our waitress was very accommodating and great to work with. Food was very good. Could not ask for better service.

The seafood is fried way too hard now!! Why did they change the prep? My family has been eating at Dockside every summer for at least 20 years. It was always delicious--until last year! Something changed in the frying of the shrimp & the flounder. The food came out hard and crunchy. Last year when I complained that my flounder... More

This was our first time eating at Dockside Seafood House and our last. From the outside, the restaurant looks modern and well kept. Upon entering, it was open and a little loud. After being seated our waitress was prompt in showing up and taking our drink order. We had a question about an appetizer and she answered but also said... More

Went there for dinner on Friday Night and the food was extremely good and fast. Service was better than average. Atmosphere was a little dated but the fresh seafood more than made up for it. Price was very reasonable for even back home and excellent for the beach.

My family and I traveled from NMB to Dockside Restaurant for dinner on a Sunday evening. The staff at the door should have been our first clue to turn around and leave. They were not very engaging or accommodating to a group of five. Several parties of six were seated before us. We finally were offered seating outside the restaurant... More
