Great place to hang out

We went there after a night of walking around. Had some great drinks and an appetizer. Pretty pricey for drinks, but worth it for a one time visit and it was connected to our hotel, so we didn't have far to walk.

The waiter wasn't interested in service. The crawfish were missing several tails and the waiter was indifferent to our comment about it. The oysters were fine, the shrimp salad was fine and both were fresh.

Ross T., Well this is very disappointing to hear! We would also like to reassure you that we train all of our staff to be attentive, friendly and fun as outstanding customer service is a must at any restaurant. When it comes to the food we serve, we do always serve quality food and to hear the crawfish were served... More

Nothing incredible but the service was pleasant and food was good. We were there for lunch today and enjoyed it. The view is great and since its off season we had no wait.

Stopped here for lunch after shopping. Food was good as well as the service. We had fried green tomatoes and they were excellent. I had the crab chowder and it was very good. Sat inside because it was too warm outside.

We picked this place because of the outdoor seating and view of the water. And we were not disappointed by the food! The crab cake sandwich was delicious! The server was friendly and attentive and fast. We will go back here again for sure!

Located in a historic building on River Street with a nice outdoor seating area, this restaurant offered the typical selection of seafood you might expect. The crab soup is very good. We had fried shrimp, oysters, grouper, and scallops which were tasty. We had key lime pie which we got free with a card from our concierge. Our server was... More

Dockside Seafood has the best fried oysters I have ever had! Beautiful view sitting on the River as well. Bathrooms were old but well equipped & the staff was very accommodating.

First night in Savannah so we wandered along the River side looking for a restaurant that looked lively with outside seating. Near the end of the run is Dockside. Good leisurely meal and able to watch the locals and tourists wander by. Server very efficient but we not rushed. Worth a try.
