Not bad at all. After reading some of the reviews you know what to expect and that's exactly what we got. There was about a 20 minute wait when we got there right at 5 so we walked the docks for a few minutes prior to being seated. The waiter (Tracy) was very good. The food came out literally in about 5 minutes after we ordered. The plates were rather small but loaded with food. Overall it was a good experience!

Our family has traveled to Dockside for 40+ years. It's one of our favorite vacation restaurants. The food is better than ever...with wonderful outdoor seating & scenic view. The food is fresh, hot & great value. We'll always have Dockside at the top of our list for fantastic seafood.

We always have dinner at the Dockside Seafood House whenever we are in the Myrtle Beach area, and it has never disappointed us. The shrimp is excellent, and the service is also great. There is a really nice view out over the marsh. Portions are huge and prices are reasonable for the area. We will continue to come here ever chance we get. It is well worth the drive up from Myrtle Beach.

This was one of the best seafood meals we have had in Calabash. The food was fresh and the view was great overlooking the water. Very pleasant atmosphere inside and family friendly. We will definitely be coming back here when in town!

I recently went to the Dockside with 8 other family members. We had one of the worst meals that I have ever had. The shrimp cocktail consisted of a small bowl of tiny shrimp that looked like they came from a can. When I tried to order a seafood platter with a light fry, I was told that all seafood was cooked together, and thus no special orders were allowed. When the seafood arrived the shrimp on the platter consisted of a very small quantity of popcorn shrimp, oysters the size of the end of my thumb with no flavor, and scallops that were overcooked. This was a total waste of eighteen dollars.
This restaurant is nothing but a tourist trap. Do not even consider dining there
