First time at this restaurant. Meet friends for Friday night dinner. My husband choose this place because it is a BYOB. We were seated at a picnic style table facing the boats in the marina so we got to watch a pretty sunset. I had the little neck claims appetizer in a wine sauce. It was delish and had a... More

Myself and two friends came for dinner here as a spur of a moment thing--we're locals and we were hungry and never tried this place before so we figured we'd give it a try. Our waitress Jules was very friendly, overall nice personality. The timing of the food was poor--waited around 15 min for our nacho appetizer, which was sloppy,... More

This little gem of a waterfront dining spot has been around for years. Last year, a new owner took over and has made amazing changes. I feel that the review needs to be broken down into three parts for better and more fair review. South Dock Marina- AWESOME changes. Boat slips are available, and our friends have docked their boat... More

I wanted fresh fish at good prices without a lot of fancy extras. Went on Wednesday night - $1 per oyster. De-Licious. Plus one of the fish sandwiches. MMMMMM....Can't be beat. Go after 8:00 to avoid the family crowds and watch the sun set. Will be back.

I had the appetizer of the burnt ends as my meal and OMG they were so tasty!! My parents had the brisket and the sauce on that was phenomenal!!! Great setting and location right on the water. Our waitress was fantastic! We had such a great meal here.

Saw their ad in The Herald. Always knew a marina was there but didn't know they did breakfast & dinner. Stopped for breakfast. Enjoyed ! Very good server. Nice open air seating with view of boat docks and wetlands. Will be back for dinner at another time.

Felt sorry for our waitress, she tried to make out right. We ordered the fresh squeezed lemonade, at $3.50 each. All it was, was lemons and water with ice. Even adding sugar didn't help. The waitress took it back. The manager wouldn't take them off the bill, she told the waitress to bring us another one. Still can't get the... More
