Dockside seafood market & marina lived up to my expectations. Having lived on the Florida Gulf coast for a few years there were plenty of these places around. In Virginia Beach? Not as many. We loved the fresh seafood. Loved the outside around the Marina. We were taken there by a friend of ours that is a local in Virginia... More

We went here to get out of the house and have lunch on Monday after the heavy snow day on Saturday. I had the lunch special fried shrimp platter and it was delicious! My wife had a fried flounder sandwich and she enjoyed that as well but felt the batter should have had some spices for more flavor. Our hush... More

Ambiance is great, you can sit looking outside to the water. Seafood is fresh and deliciously cooked, although menu is a bit small. Speed of the food is quick as well. There is a small store where you can buy goods as well as seafood. Will be coming here again in the future.,

We go here at least once, and usually twice, every time we visit VA Beach. We enjoy their crab leg dinner very much! Great meal at a good price.

We usually come here twice a month. The views are so beautiful, it is worth to go when the weather is nice. You can still enjoy it from the inside but it is not the same. Sometimes is a little hard to get a table, especially on weekends around dinner time, it gets crowded. What we do is go there... More

I turned 60 this year and traveled to Virginia Beach just a few days later. There was no question that I'd head back to Dockside for a belated birthday dinner. It was election day evening so we sat in the quiet, second dining room, away from the active bar and TVs showing a variety of news coverage. The second dining... More

We were fortunate enough to be able to dine on the deck on a beautiful November evening. Portions were large so since many of us were traveling, we were able to send the left overs home with one of our group who lives in the area.

I love to eat here every chance I get. I love sitting on the deck and watching the boats and dolphins swim by. The food is always great and good portions. Definitely the best crab cakes I can find anywhere. There's also a fresh fish market connected to the restaurant.

Catch of the day (Sheepshead) was excellent, really well cooked and very tasty. Our party tried other seafood dishes and all were very good. Good selection of ales and service was very good too. Highly recommended.

My wife and I have eaten here several time and this is our favorite seafood restaurant now. Try there 2-crabcake entree and also their stuffed shrimp. Tremendous! And for drinks their Mojitos, multiple flavors, are awesome!. The service is probably the fastest we've experienced in any restaurant. We've noticed all of their servers and busting their a.. and are cheerful... More
