Have to try the French onion soup

We had a late lunch, so we were not that hungry. I had an awesome French onion soup and the candied pecan salad - it was perfect. My husband had the Daddy D Burger and he said it was excellent. The service could have been a little better, they were not busy.

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

Enjoyed fresh local brunch with beautiful view of the inlet. Service was great even during busy holiday. Best crab cake Benedict I've ever had. Reasonable prices and fantastic food. Will return.

Great food and even better service. By a cute boardwalk where locals sell crafts. You can purchase an alcoholic beverage and carry it with you on the boardwalk.

The food here is excellent...wonderful seafood, good soup, and very good desserts. Try the flounder, French onion soup and you can't go wrong with the Key Lime Tart or Bread Pudding...delicious! And wonderful service to match the food, we'll definitely be going back.

My daughter and I visited my dad over the March 14th weekend. She wanted to take me to Dockside, and I'm glad she did. We arrived early on March 15, around 4:15. No crowd, but we were early. We were taken to a great table overlooking Goat Island and Murrells inlet. The table was large and not cramped at all,... More

We had a group of 8 and had the best time and dinners. My Crabcakes were delicious! All meals arrived hot and together. Our server was attentive and very personable. Nice experience. Everyone loved their meals. The skewered shrimp looked excellent

This is not the shrimp and grits your mother used to make. A creative flair makes this meal special. Along with the stone-ground grits and shrimp the chef adds andouille sausage, thinly sliced ham, diced tomatoes, chives and seasonings the really set this dish apart from all others. Be hungry because this is a large portion. Never room for dessert.... More
