Fabulous place, wonderful location and the usual warm Southern welcome. Deep fried oyster po'boy and fried green tomatoes are to die for.

I'm kind of a crab cake snob. I'm very picky. I got the crab cake basket at Dockside, and I absolutely loved it. I asked for the mango chutney to go with it instead of the tartar sauce, and that made it even more yummy. The fries were crinkle fries, and they were cooked to perfection. I don't usually like...

Our server was really sweet. The restaurant wasn't that busy so she talked to us for a while telling us about the history of Savannah and the building and herself. I feel bad that I can't remember her name. We were kind of disappointed in the food she suggested though. She told us the seafood diablo and the scallops pasta... More

Family walked the street on the riverfront; which had plenty eating options. We stopped here because it was closest to our hotel (Hilton Garden Inn). It turned out to be a great stop...you MUST order the shrimp and grits!

The service was friendly and attentive. My husband had fried scallops that were delicious. I had the peel and eat shrimp and they were excellent. House salad dressing was very tasty. Drink specials included a memorable mojito. Key lime pie was the perfect ending. I highly recommend this place.

This was our last stop for an appetizer prior to heading out of the city. The shrimp and grits for an appetizer could almost be an entrée if u you are a light eater, they are amazing and a MUST TRY item on the menu! Also great views of the Savannah River!

Ordered the catch of the day, snapper, grilled and mussels. Snapper came blackened instead and they had no more snapper to correct it. Mussel shells were cracked, like hit with a hammer, so did not know if they opened on their own. Second round of drinks came wrong. A lot of money for bad food and no service.

I'm not going to go into great detail just due to the fact this place doesn't seem to have a bad reputation, I'm just going with the thought I went on a bad night. It was a Tue. night and very slow, only a couple of people dining. They had a special that night, low country boil. After ordering I... More

The location (dockside :) and the staff are the stars of this casual dining place. We arrived at happy hour and had some reasonably priced cocktails and a couple of beers on their pleasant patio. Lots of people-watching, a nice view of the park and the river, tasty apps and extremely friendly service.
