Great local bar!

So my husband and I went here alone and it was so good we brought family the next night. The food is good, and the beer is cold. They definitely have a local presence as we were glared at as tourists. The older guy in the outside bar was a little grouchy about kiddos but I can understand. Not... read more

Plenty of space, fast and friendly service, and beautiful presentation of food (should have taken a picture). Try their mussels, fish 'n chips, or Vickey's grouper. Yum! We were heading to Bonefish Grill, but it was sooo packed, that we had to look for an alternative diner. Glad we checked out Drydock. Prices are about $18-$24 a person. Well worth... More

We've been to HHI more times than I can count, and we were looking for someplace new and casual. Drydock's menu was published in one of the restaurant books (printed for tourists), so we gave it a shot. The place is rather difficult to find, and it is literally located in a huge empty building. Other than the restaurant, the... More

Get ready for your run of the mill fried bar food restaurant. Atmosphere inside feels like your at a funeral. Nothing lively at all. Ate and left. Should have just had a drink and left....oh well, at least we tried something different.

Little hard to find but the it was worth the effort. All of Hilton Head businesses are hidden behind oaks and poorly lit especially on rainy and moonless nights. Once we found it we were not disappointed as the Dry Dock offered good seafood and portions in a casual setting. You pass through the bar area and are seated in... More

Great seafood at good prices. Neat outside bar out back. Seems to be a local hang out. Great staff. Really good hush puppies. Kind of a hole in the wall feel ... not in a bad way !

This place is easy to miss because it's in a business complex where a restaurant looks very out of place. However, the food there is pretty good and feels like a local bar.

We discovered this place by accident and boy are we glad we did. The food was scrumptious and the portions quite large. I had a shrimp plate. The shrimp were tender and sweet. The cole slaw was delicious; the hushpuppies melted in our mouths. The prices are more than reasonable. We will certainly visit again. FYI you have to walk... More

Sort of out of the way location but it was cool. Attentive staff and friendly patrons. Shuffle bowl table is a bonus feature, also outdoor bar when it's warmer outside.

The service was friendly and fast. However, we did not end up enjoying the food at all, it was borderline okay. The food seemed unskilled and cheaply made especially for the price. Seems like a good hole in the wall to have a beer and a conversation but not dinner. The strong reviews here really let us down.
