“Also great”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

we ate here the next day and ate outside on the dining area, had live music and a show of seagulls, pelicans and boats coasting by all the while smelling the sea.. (things you treasure when you live in Phoenix) love the place. also when we stopped for gas at convience store, a group of young kids came in and everyone was getting coffee or hot choclate. These kids were so nice and polite. I was so impressed with them. Hats off to Morro Bay residents!! very nice place to get the chance to stay!!

“Best seafood on Central Coast”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We live in Morro Bay so we have had a chance to try different restaurants in the area. We have stopped trying others and always go to Dockside TOO, the outdoor fish market. I usually have the fish tacos, my partner had the grilled scallops, oh, they have of bbq oysters on the half shell which are to die for. There is always a musician playing nice music and if the weather is nice you cannot beat this place for delicious seafood .

“Great fish tacos”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The waterfront cafe has outdoor seating and they actually accept your pet on a leash at the outdoor seating area. We often go down for wonderful tacos and beer. The staff is great and always a fun place to meet new people.

“Local Favorite”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Dockside is a fish market and outdoor restaurant. Great fish and chips, good N.E. clam chowder. Lots of fresh fish choices as well. Walk up counter service inside, nice wine and beer selections at reasonable prices, dog-friendly casual outdoor dining overlooking the "Rock" and the harbor. Fishing boats returning to offload their catch next to Dockside.

“Dog Friendly Dining Waterfront.”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Well, the dog friendly dining is at Tognazzini's Dockside patio dining right behind the restaurant. The restaurant has the same fresh off the boat fish. The restaurant is good. Good service and good food. You can't get fresher than right off the boat.
Behind the restaurant is a patio dining, dog friendly, Tognazzi's at the fish market. You go in, choose fish from the fish market and how you would like it prepared. There is no waitress service, you pick up the food yourself and eat at patio tables. This is separate and behind the restaurant.
There is often live music and always people with dogs. You can sit at a table from which you could fall into the bay. Sea lions frequently service knowing that the fish market is there. It is a truly fun and unique event!!
