Beautiful James River view. Great seafood and more. Good prices. Worth the drive if you're in the area.

We stopped at the Dockside for lunch with a tour group. The waitress was helpful and brought our meal in a short time. I had the crab cake sandwich . It was very good with a lot of crab. This was a good meal.

First let me say this is one of the few restaurants in the area...really has a monopoly on dinner . The view of the James River is interesting and in some directions beautiful, (not including the factories on the Hopewell waterfront). The waitress and hostess...More
