We were vacationing in the area, and had such an enjoyable meal that we went back a second night. We would not normally do this as we would like to have as many different experiences as possible. Good service. reasonable prices.

Visited the Port Royal in September on a business trip. It was so good that on this trip we had it again but on Lady's Island. Both were great.

A group of us had dinner at Dockside last night, celebrating a birthday. The food was great--extremely fresh seafood, and the service was very good, too. The only negative was the sticky tables and chairs.

This restaurant is located right on the inlet. The late afternoon view of water and boats was very picturesque. Since we had a late lunch, the place was not crowded and service was quite prompt. My pasta with shrimp, peppers, black olives and garlic was excellent. I requested light on the sauce, and it was perfect. The generous serving of... More

We went to this restuarant on the recommendations of 2 locals. We sat at the bar and shared 2 apps and one dinner. We had their crab cake that was all fresh crab and no bread stuffing. The shrimp were fresh and local as well. The flounder dinner very very good. The bartender was attentive and fun to talk with.... More

Dockside is always dependable. Never extraordinary, and never bad. Always good. The whole flounder (fried, of course) is my favorite. Oysters are generally very good. All seafood that we've had has been fresh. Service is always good.

I can honestly say this is the best seafood restaurant that I have ever eaten at. There may be a better one somewhere but I haven't found it. We don't visit this area very often but when we do, we always easy at Dockside. I'm not sure if the food is awesome because it's so fresh or if it's the... More

Went with a couple of my friends for something different and the food was very delicious and the atmosphere was down home. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Dockside is a classic fried seafood restaurant with dependably good food in a family friendly setting. There are two Beaufort area locations (one near Port Royal and one on Lady's Island), both are equally good and are on the waterfront with excellent views. If you are looking for the classic lowcountry fried seafood meal in a very casual setting, either... More
