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.

We stopped to eat before checking in to Wyndham. I had shrimp basket and my husband had fish and chips. They were good. Nothing special. No complaint except we thought the price was high for lunch plus a tip. Nice atmosphere.

I wanted a quick bite to eat overlooking the river. It was cool, food was good (fish tacos), and quiet. You do have to walk through the bar to get outside, though. I could see how it could get loud. I was just too early...More

We are long time visitors to Edisto and the Dock Side Restaurant. What a shock to find out there was no dining room upstairs and the restaurant was a far cry from what it used to be. It used to be one of the nicer...More

Sorry you did not enjoy your visit to Dockside. The upstairs restaurant closed 4 or 5 years ago, so we decided to offer everything downstairs and on the deck overlooking the creek. The view is actually much better downstairs because we have solid windows across...More

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
