Good choice on the marsh walk

Right on the marshwalk in murells inlet. Very nice open interior dining room with a nice section upstairs with window seating. The menu was a little pricey but food was pretty good.

I give it one star for the hush puppies...the rest was tourist swill. Flatbread was a pre made lavosh that you can buy frozen in bulk Shrimp and grits were boring and the shrimp way over cooked Save your hard earned dollars and keep away

We always love to eat at Dockside. The seafood is fresh from the area and prepared to perfection. Our server this time was too spread out and we didn't receive good service. The view is beautiful and we love the atmosphere!

I ordered their special (Striped Bass with the recommended crawfish side)... so yummy! Loved sitting outside overlooking the marshwalk. Typically higher priced but was delicious.

Very good dinning experience last night at Captain Daves! Our waitress Sherry was very good and keep close tabs on us. I had their Seafood platter with oysters, shrimp, scallops and flounder. It was very lightly battered and fried to perfection. The portions weren't extremely large but just right. My wife had their seared scallops. They were delicious! Our waitress... More

I have been here before & it is a special place for a really fabulous meal. We had a table by the window, offering a lovely view of the Marshwalk & Goat Island. It's great for people-watching! Every course is excellent--from the hush-puppies to the dessert. It's definitely a restaurant to visited again!!

This is a slightly upscale restaurant that has a excellent menu and wait staff. We didn't have reservations but we were seated in about 15 minutes right in front of the glass doors overlooking Murells inlet and goat island. We both ordered the combination platter of oysters,shrimp and scallops. The food was lightly fried to perfection and delicious. And the... More

Went for the 1st time with my wife. Had excellent seafood meals, presentation was top notch. Complimentary hush-puppies with raspberry butter were awesome. We sat outside overlooking the walkway, really nice view. We will go back. A little pricy but was worth it!
