This is a casual seafood restaurant with helpful servers and tasty food. The menu is varied and, if you don't like seafood and fancy a steak, they have that too. Service is fast and seating on the dockside is on picnic style tables and benches. It offers good value for money and the atmosphere is great, particularly if sat outside.

This is the best place I have ever had blue crabs, period.

I swung through here on a road trip, and it was awesome. This was a food oriented journey that took us from cheese steaks in Phili, crab cakes in Maryland, down to Virginia, from there to Charleston then Savanna. Eating all the way.

The Dockside out did every place else. We sat outside looking out over the water. Smell of fish and brine.

Ordered a dozen oysters, and a dozen crabs... and they were terrific.

All big No. 1 Jimmies, and the oysters were big and delicious too.

Can't beat it. Liked it so much, I actually bought some cheesy t-shirt from the gift shop...(that I actually wear with pride)

We took a headboat out of Dockside to go fishing. The mates are very helpful and the captain puts you on fish. The boat is clean and we had a good time. I also recommend this place for their dolphin trips! We saw many dolphins and the captain did a nice job of making wake so the dolphins jumped and came out of the water. We did eat here as well. The food was excellent, great shrimp. Our waiter was not pleasant and the service was not the greatest but overall this place is great for many different activities.

This was great seafood and a great outlook onto the water. it is not much to look at from the outside, but the restaurant itself is attached to the back of a minimart and is nice. The server was very friendly. The food was also good and was a great deal!!
