Over priced, Lets face it, you can't eat enough crab legs to justify the price. Nice family restaurant, stick with the lower menu selections and enjoy the surroundings.

Stopped by in the afternoon just to get refreshed. It's located on Big Bay Creek so you're not on the ocean but it has a great 'dive' feel. We sat outside on the covered porch. The shrimp was awesome. Good place to just kick back.

Fair enough, but how fair is it to the business to post a negative review when you didn't even try it? I actually own Dockside, so forgive me if I seem too passionate about this place, but I am. I have a very hard working... More
