Although Captain Dave used to be a mainstay on our culinary tour of the Grand Strand, lately it has lost it's old quality. Salads are soggy, crab cake is mostly filler, shrimp and grits wasn't "world famous"...yet the prices were very high. However, the wait staff was very patient and helpful and seemed frustrated with some lackluster efforts in the... More

We took our family to this restaurant for lunch. They advertise the fact that lunch is under $10.00. The lunch portions were so small that we left hungry. For example: Our son ordered a shrimp salad. The portion was so small that it looked lost on the small serving plate! He ate it in two bites. Our grandson ordered mac... More

This was our first visit to the Dockside. The food was good but the service was kinda lacking. Not sure why since there was only 4 tables seated and it was lunchtime. The watermelon limeade was very refreshing and the best drink I've had in a while. Also the fried green tomato soup was very good.

Let me preface this by saying my daughter and son in law are locals and it's their favorite. We had a reasonably priced lunch with excellent service. The fish and shrimp were lightly and delicately breaded and and delicious. Most places don't make iced tea to my liking but it was perfect. Afterward we walked out the back door and... More

Overlooking an island in the marsh replete with frolicking goats, the restaurant offers expansive views and close up access to the Marshwalk, a fun place to stroll on a summer's evening. The seafood was some of the best I have had in ages and my 2 dining companions echo that sentiment. The hushpuppies served with every meal are wonderful. Good... More

We go often and enjoy each time. The food is the best in the area, the service is impecable, the view is serene! We've never been disappointed by the staff to work with people with dietary needs and to accommodate everyone.

We arrived after 8:00 and most of the tables were still full. It was just my husband and I and we were seated by the door going out on the patio. Not the best table in the restaurant, but the view was good. My husband ordered a cocktail (starburst) and I got wine. Our waiter apologized several times for the... More

We went here for an early lunch and caught them just as they were opening up. We had the place to ourselves with a table by the window. The food was good and not overpriced. The people were friendly. (What else did they have to do, we were the only ones in the place.) They were getting ready for a... More
