“Real authentic seafood place”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

This Morro Bay harbor restaurant is owned by a local commercial fisherman and the seafood is wonderful. It's fresh off of local boats. We recently had dinner with friends, I enjoyed the seafood quesadilla and my wife had the daily special, Petrale Sole. Both dishes were wonderful. Prices are quite reasonable and the service was good. I'm not a big seafood fan but Dockside dinners have become a real treat.

“The Food was Great! Not so good views...”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We came here because we thought we would try some of the restaurants during our stay here. I had the dungenous crab melt sandwich...It was out of this world!!! Not a crab cake, but real shredded crab! With french fries! Service was good also...The water views were a bunch of boats on the dock...not much. Would recommend to go here for the food.

“Great food with a killer view!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

We HAVE to eat here any time we Stay in Morro Bay, we have never eaten at the indoor restaurant but always go to the fish counter & order then sit dockside with a killer view of Morro Rock. The clam chowder is the best, calamari is yummy & their smoked fish is some of the best we've ever eaten....very dog friendly plus there is always a local musician playing good music...enjoy!!

“Best Fish Tacos On The CC”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I have been going to Dockside for a number of years. Not only are they extremely afffordable, the food is always cooked to perfection and the outdoor dinning is located on the dock over looking the harbor. Beautiful spot. Great staff.

“Way terrible!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

On vacation for the 10th year in Cayucos.
Had lunch at the restaurant two days ago, very good.

Thought we'd grab a crab from the market - told them to pick a 2lb+ for us, cook and crack.
Came back, took it home, what a total rip-off! They must have known we were taking it home - charged over $20, couln't have been anywhere near 2lb. Ended up with about 3 tbl of meat after picking. Wanted to take it back - just won't ever go there again!
Warning - if you buy it there, eat it there!
