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

I can say I have been to most places on the island and this was by far the worst restaurant. We only came because of the outside sitting which was gross and overcrowded. The waitresses were not professional or trained and took forever. Our burgers were subpar for sure and I should have gone to wendy's and paid 1/3 the... More

Stopped in for a beer after golf as the Grover's restaurant at course is closed. Order two beers and peel and eat shrimp. Went to outside patio to watch the pelicans. We had to go back and check on shrimp after 20 minutes. Enjoyed another beer and shrimp was very tasty. Bathrooms were dirty as was outside area. No need... More

We originally started out at a different restaurant, and finally settled on Dock Side. What a mistake. While our server was fine, the food was terrible. We were served canned green beans and the shrimp was not fresh. We were NOT satisfied considering the price tag on this food. When I called to speak to the owner about our discontent,... More

This place is a local hangout; lots of folks joking around at the bar... Bottled beer, nothing on tap, pretty good menu, great views of the water. If you are looking for swanky, this is probably the wrong island for you --- but relaxing, laid back, kind of worn places... just right for us! The waitress was hilarious, and the... More
