I visited this establishment with my family last week while visiting the area. It was off season and the area was pretty dead. We had just arrived at our timeshare and were tired and hungry so, we went into this restaurant, even though the appearance did cause us to hesitate before entering. Alas, we continued and we entered a bar-like... More

Went for lunch. Wanted oyster po'boy, got a very good one. 3 companions happy with oyster, mahi Caesar salads. Drank several palmetto pale ales. Great view from dock. Loved the service. Hey folks, this is a low country dive. Don't expect more than it is, and you will be happy. Oh - get the "raw chips" -- they are not... More

A large group of my friends and I went to this establishment on what would have otherwise been a dead night for the bar downstairs. The vodka liquor drinks we ordered tasted like the water. We also couldn't taste a difference between the Ketel One & soda & the house vodka & soda. Guess in the off season, you'd be... More

They refused to seat me since I was alone. Instead they sent me to the bar to eat at the counter. No thanks.

We are seafood lovers and we love our seafood when we travel along the coast of SC. But, I think we have gotten spoiled by the way we enjoy how our seafood is prepared. While the food at Dock Side was tasty, the portions were small compared to what we experience along the SC/NC border. And, the prices were much... More

When you walk into the Dock Side Restaurant, you feel as though you are in a bar, then you look up and realize that they have family dining outside near the dock. Don't let the rundown look of the restaurant to keep you from going. The food was relatively good. It was priced in keeping with the neighborhood. I would... More

The food and service here were very good. I especially enjoyed the crab bisque. It is nice not to have to cook every night of your vacation, and is a good restaurant to try.

I would call the Dockside a funky dive. However, dives can have great food. The Peel and Eat shrimp was delicious, very fresh. The cocktail sauce tasted house made with horseradish, delicious. We sat outside on the dock hoping the dolphins would swim by. We also heard this is a great place to catch the otters playing and the occasional... More
