I love the Port Royal Dockside . We have eaten at the Lady's island one and not been as impressed with wait staff , cleanliness or food . So Port Royal it is . The atmosphere is always great . Always a graduation party from Parris Island,or a big family gathering . Wait staff are always friendly and nothing is... More

We drove by this place on Saturday night and it was hopping. So on Sunday evening, we went in for dinner. Not packed at all. Very much a bar atmosphere. Food was ok. Staff was friendly. Could be a very cool place with a little more effort. Just a typical hole in the wall bar with decent food. Nothing more,... More

Nice place, nice servers, and great food !! Really cool atmosphere and awesome view out over the inlet. We have been here several times, and everything we have tried was really good. Definitely recommend stopping in here when you visit the island.

This is Edi-slow Island, but... We waited a very long time for our food. There were only about three tables of people in the place, including the outdoor seating. Our meals arrived about 40 minutes after we ordered. We had shrimp tacos, a cheeseburger, shrimp and scallops, and a BLT. Food was okay. Service not so much.

We were told this place is a "dive with good food". That's a pretty good description. When you first walk in it's a little sleazy looking with old ratty pool tables and scruffy looking locals but walk out to the food service area (on a dock) and order some drinks and a meal and you won't notice the décor.

We got steamed shrimp and scallops. They were ok, just ok. Very few on plate and too high priced. French fries were terrible and slaw tasted old.

The food and service was good. We had a party of 15 without reservations but we were seated in about 30 minutes. We had a nice view and enjoyed the sunset overlooking the water.
