40 minute ride and worth the trip from HHI, SC. She Crab Soup, Crab Cake, Fried Shrimp, just baked corn bread and Pecan Pie with the sun setting over Parris Island, Marine Corps Recruit Depot. On the water with fishing boats docked just out the door. Fish for sure and the server was able to answer all my lovelies questions.... More

With a party of 12 to visit my grand-son recruit graduation at Parris Island and we all wanted some good seafood since we were right on the water. As other reviews had mentioned the hush puppies were really good. We all ordered different items as their menu has a wide selection of different choices. I had the seafood platter with... More

Excellent seafood and friendly staff. Best hushpuppies around served with honey butter. The view with the shrimp boats and sunset bonus to the great atmosphere. If you are looking for good fresh seafood this is the place.

i had the she crab soup .... it was excellent, i have to say it is better than the she crab soup at Shem Creek Bar and Grill in Shem Creek , SC Just a quaint place to eat with the creek being there with the shrimp boats. It was unexpected because you have to travel through a residential neighborhood... More

We came to Parris island for our sons graduation from the Marines. Of course being this close to the sea we wanted seafood I read the reviews and we decided to go. We had a 30 minute wait but it was with it!!! The she crab soup was excellent and the lobster was the best I've ever had!!

In my travels up and down the east and west coasts, I've always tried to seek out good, fresh seafood that is as local as possible. Most often this is served in a little shack by a dock with picnic tables and plastic chairs. Dockside is not that type of place -- it's more of the captain's chairs, fishing nets,... More

We stopped by the Dockside restaurant after going out to hunting island for dinner. I ate the fried shrimp and my wife got fried oysters. The meal was excellent and a good value, especially to be at the coast. I recommend it and will stop again when in the area.

It took us three tries to eat at Dockside. First, the Beaufort location was closed for the holidays. Second, the Lady's Island location was closed on Mondays. We finally made it Wednesday night and luckily it was well worth the weight. From the attentive wait staff to the pre-dinner breadsticks and cornbread (both probably the fluffiest I have ever eaten)... More

I am a local of the Beaufort area and have frequented the 11th Street Dockside too many times to count. Dockside maintains two locations, the first (main restaurant) 11th. Street in Port Royal and the second on Lady's island (formally Ollie's). The food is consistently good which keeps locals and out of town guests alike, coming back for more. A... More

Visiting the area we decided to try the Lady's Island location. By the volume of cars and people inside on a week night it is very popular. We were seated quickly and the waitress was quick to take our drink order. Limited wine selections help make your choice quick. Bread/butter delivered while you wait and the cornbread is very good.... More
