Check out the winter special. Buy one entree and get one free ! You may expect they would cut back on the portion...but not the case.The same service and same great... More

With so many places to chose we're so glad we walked into the Dockside. The waitress was great, the Hush-puppies were outstanding and the meal was one of the best. If you've never tried shrimp and grits this is the place.

We started off with cocktails and our server brought us these hush puppy nuggets with raspberry butter that melted in your mouth - delicious! What followed was not flavorful at all - I ordered the salmon on top of spinach - the salmon had no flavor and the spinach was the consistency of baby food. The dessert however was really... More

After our ill-fated attempt to dine at Drunken Jack's, we were VERY happy that we walked a short distance to Captain Dave's! Quiet, colorful, modern, clean, sleek.....a wonderful place to sit quietly and enjoy a great meal! Tyler took our order and we were pleasantly surprised that he remembered each aspect! We were awed by the hushpuppies and the butter.... More

Started at the bar where we found the bartender to be extremely knowledgeable. He recommended several wines and seasonal beers, and even gave us a generous sample of one of the wines. The warm hush puppies instead of bread are wonderful. Three members of our party ordered the Flounder Platter. The fish was fresh, lightly breaded and cooked to perfection.... More
