Both of us tried "unknown" to us fish. Both of us got fresh fish offers. Excellent offerings! Great to sit outside and watch the sunset. Service was good. Would definitely go back!

Dockside is located right on the water and the outside seating has a great view. The outside seating is pretty much all picnic tables, so dress accordingly. The food was good and mostly seafood, but they do have food for non-seafood eaters like myself. The...More

This place definitely lived up to its reviews. We loved sitting outdoors in the dog-friendly part of the patio, watching all the boats go by. The food was quite good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had blackened tuna sandwiches and tacos,...More

Great spot for local seafood that we always visit when in the area. First, the location is on Lynnhaven Inlet, so if you hit the sunset right, it's a perfect spot to be on a nice summer or in this case, autumn night. But the...More
