Description: The Dockside was opened in January 2012 by Chef Brandon Wall.

After working in some of the finest restaurants in Charleston for over 4 years, Chef Wall finally had the opportunity to make his dream come true. After living on the island for over 2 years, he had the chance to lease a space inside the marina. Since opening, locals have come to love everything that he creates!

Everything is fresh and made to order. We offer deli sandwiches, salads and the most delicious cheeseburgers you have ever tasted.

“Slammed on day one... ready on day two”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We had a conference of over 100 people at the hotel and resort. The Dockside wasn't ready on the first day at lunch as was slammed, big time. They kept their cool and kept up as best they could, never skipping a beat.

On day two, they were ready for us. They had pre-staged sandwiches, wraps, salads, etc. Our attendees were in and out in minutes. The food was excellent and the price fair. Service was perfect and with a smile (even when they were slammed on the first day). Great work!

“The view is the best thing about this place”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

A good place to grab a quick bite to eat. It's in a little marina market, and Its a walk up window. You can order your food, and sit outside overlooking the marina. (watch out for bird doo doo)
They serve simple breakfast and lunch items. Sandwiches etc.. The food is very average.

“Very nice - Casual and Relaxing”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Very good food and excellent service. Pretty comprehensive menu. Staff was agreeable to modify entrees for food allergies. Had a great time. We were here two years ago and it is still very good.

“Best hamburger I have had in a long time!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Great spot for lunch and breakfast. Brandon takes your order and will change it up however you want. I had the grilled.pimento cheese with tomatoes and lettuce. Wonderful! Simple foods with perfect seasonings. Husband; the hamburger, I know just a hamburger but he said it was the best he had been served in years. We ate outside along the dock and watched the boats coming into the marina. If you are in the area do not forget about Dockside, very affordable and tasty!

“Convenience Store with deli inside”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

They sell food and have limited seating outside. but if you are looking for a restaurant, this is not the place. It is an overpriced convenience store for folks on the island. Maybe the patrons stop in to grab something prepared at the deli to bring on a charter.
