We had lunch at Dockside. Our choices were scallops and fried shrimp. Both entries were well prepared and fresh. We also had cole slaw, hush puppies (great), and red rice. The server was fast and very accommodating. We chose to sit inside but they do have outside seating. Very good food for such a... read more

The very good news: our waitress warned us about some less desirable items, such as overly breaded deviled crab. Our food was good but not special.

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed sitting outside on the patio, people watching. The service was ok, a little awkward at times. The hostess who seated us was very friendly, but 15 minutes after she sat us I asked where the bathroom was and she replied, "are you dining here sweetie?" Inside the restaurant was dark and we were happy they... More

On our way back to Ohio we stopped in savannah, and ate here. The food was absolutely fabulous! We split the seafood platter and it was more than enough for the both of us. Our waitress was great. The problem was when we first got there it took 20 minutes, sitting at the bar to order a drink. It was... More

Great place for people watching and river traffic. Service was prompt and friendly. Lunch menu was reasonably priced and the food acceptable, however the corned beef in the Ruben was tough. Burger and fries were excellent. Noise from the delivery trucks was annoying, but overall an enjoyable place to have lunch.

We sat outside and enjoyed sangria, wine, and fried green tomatoes like my mom used to make. It was a comfortable and relaxed spot to view the river and people watch. Our server, Anna, was funny and sweet and we enjoyed talking to her.

Highly recommend the Shrimp and Grits. We got the appetizer size and the portion was perfect. If you are really hungry, split another appetizer, our party of 6 got the fried green tomatoes, fried pickles and cup of chowder. All of which were excellent. Great atmosphere and great service!! Highly recommend!

We stopped because of the view, the price, and the fact that they werenoy very busy. We waited a long time for our food and the dish was not even as listed on menu.

While visiting Savannah, we had a late lunch/early dinner. Our server, Shea, was very good. The blackened Mahi Mahi salad was great. My wife enjoyed her teriyaki steak with fries. A street musician played the sax across the road while we ate. Recommended.
