“Best oysters”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Not fancy. At all. But we have not stopped talking about these oysters. At $2 a pop, the bbq oysters in garlic butter and huge and to die for. We also tried the smoked fish tacos - a little dry, but the reason for our 5 star review is the oysters and the clam chowder in a bread bowl. You can eat outside or inside and sometimes there is live (albeit loud) entertainment. Hope to return one day for more oysters - hard to find such fresh seafood.

“Good food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Everything was excellent—food, wine, and service. It really is right on the dockside near the power plant and from the street it does not give an imposing appearance, but inside you are comfortable and well taken care of.

“Good Food”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

My co-worker took me here. Well...it was really good. I enjoy the meal and the view. It was very nice little place and very busy with customers. The seafoods are fresh catch and excellent customer service. It's not fancy place or anything, but the food is great and feel is homey.

“Dockside 2”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We like to eat at Dockside 2 (right behind the main restaurant) because of the outdoor seating and the live music. There's nothing better at sunset than good music, delicious barbecued oysters and a cold drink. With that being said, the service is terrible. I always feel like they are put out to have to take my order, but I guess it's not so bad that I won't go back. When I have eaten inside the main restaurant, the service was great.

“Eat with the local people!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The place is not fancy and nice looking but the food is good and the fish fresh. The staff is nice and very efficient. The plates were a good size and the kids menu is not only Mac and cheese... A nice change!
