By far, one of the best She Crab soups I've ever had. Been dreaming about it ever since I lef . Can't wait to get back for some 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

We had 9 people that walked in without a reservation. The table was arranged for us and we sat down. Service was good but not crisp, but they became busy and had two servers for the room. The table and chairs were comfortable and the noise level was low so everyone could hear each other. The food was hot when... More

Beautiful location right on the marsh walk. The views are beautiful, and the service was very good. The employees are very relaxed and friendly. I order pan-seared scallops and was a little disappointed. They were swimming in a sauce, that was tasty, but made the scallops rubbery.

I found Dave's Dockside during the winter, on the way to Drunken Jack's next door. Luckily, Jack's was closed, and I chose to eat at Dave's, since I was already parked. As others have said, the first thing that comes out are warm hush puppies with raspberry butter. Yowza! Then I ordered the salmon Florentine, and it was cooked exquisitely,... More

This is a wonderful restaurant, the food is excellent, the service is great and the atmosphere is very nice. We didn't have to wait to be seated and there is a wonderful view of the inlet from the upstairs dining area. The food is a little pricy, but very good.

We weren't willing to wait 2 hrs at a nearby restaurant, so we decided to give Captain Dave's Dockside a try. So glad we did! It was our best meal all week. We loved the delicate hush puppies served with raspberry butter instead of bread. Our clam appetizer was terrific, and was a new taste adventure for two of us.... More

All-in-all, not a great experience. Parking is difficult, as there are many restaurants in a row. I can't imagine what it is like during the summer season. A smell of mildew hit me as soon as I entered the restaurant. Fortunately, we were seated upstairs, where it was not as strong. The view was lovely and our server, Leara, was... More

It was a busy Friday night when we recently visited, but we were seated promptly and served quickly. There were plenty of non fish items on the menu, but why bother? The fish was fresh and well prepared. I settled on the fried seafood platter, loved the oysters. The shrimp and grits looked awesome. The hushpuppy like starter were really... More

This restaurant offers the kind of food we were looking for when we came to Myrtle Beach; fresh and delicious, unfettered by breading or deep frying, a delectable menu! Our waitress Joan was informative, helpful, very friendly and attentive Beautiful view of the inlet.. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all!
