We just wanted to go someplace to get some good seafood but many of the other restaurants nearby had an hour or more wait to be seated. We were walking along the water and looked up towards Dockside Restaurant and noticed the patio was empty...SCORE! The food was excellent, the server who told us she works there during the summer...

We provided the dessert, the groom's cake, otherwise I am... More

Food is way over priced, for a seafood platter $27 got 3 oysters, 3 scallops 7 to 8 shrimp and one piece of flounder. Hush puppies were good and the food was good, but just over priced.
