Good food, friendly environment

When you pull up it looks like nothing special. But the food was very good and the staff was super friendly. The atmosphere was very enjoyable.

Unlike some other Murrells Inlet restaurants that I will not name, Captain Dave's Dockside took our reservation for 13 which included 5 children aged 10 to 20 months and were very accommodating during the entire time that we were there. The food and service were excellent and everyone had a most enjoyable dinner.

Great place with awesome views. Very good service including the manager who stopped by for a minute. Very good for families. Awesome beer list. Very decent price. I recommend it and would go again. My only complaint would be that almost everything is kind of fried.... But very tasty anyway, try the home made cheese sticks.

With so many places to eat we took a chance on Dave's Dockside. It was great. The food was great and the service was excellent. Seth saw to our every need, offered great recommendations and super service. We started with the Calamari (awesome), My wife had the Tilapia Special and I had the Shrimp and Grits. Both were delicious. We... More

A family favorite that we visit year after year. Never disappointed with the quality of food or service. The shrimp and grits on our most recent visit were so delicious and the portion was huge. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. The hush-puppies are always a hit with us, last time they were served with a raspberry butter.... More

My husband and I celebrated our 24th Anniversary at Captain Dave's Dockside. The hush puppies with raspberry butter melted in our mouths. Seth, our server recommended hog fish, which was wonderful. My husband had scallops and grits, which he devoured. We asked for a table by the window and enjoyed the view. Loved the food and Seth was a terrific... More

I came to Myrtle Beach to celebrate my best friend's birthday and someone recommended this restaurant. The food was so good and the ocean view was nice! I had the fried lobster...never heard of it but thought I'd give it a try. OMG...I'll have to come back soon!!! You must try it and the hush puppies with the raspberry butter... More

We've eaten here several times and very much enjoy it. It is a quiet, classy place to eat - or has been when we have been there. We went with friends and the four of us got different items; we were pleased with everything we got. Our server was attentive. Service seemed to be neither fast nor slow, but as... More

Blueberry Muffin French Toast! Say no more! This was pretty much the best breakfast ever! I don't know what to say. Full of fresh delicious blueberries in a muffin type bread then toasted and served in a lovely presentation! The service on this Sunday was impeccable and the ambiance was very nice while gazing the Marsh Walk area at Murrell's... More
