Had dinner one night and were about the only people in the place. Service was little slow and the menu was limited, but the burgers were really good. Nice and juicy and plump, so that made everything alright.

Loved the food and the free pool! Our waiter was very kind and checked on us frequently. Not bad pricing and the food options were great! Would like to go again!

The fried shrimp at this restaurant are perhaps the best that I've ever had. Freshness is the key as the seafood market is right next door. This is really a bar but expect good food.

We ate lunch here when we arrived in Edisto. Eat on the deck which has a roof and is partially screened. It is on the water. The place needs to be renovated- it is pretty seedy looking. Lots of locals play pool inside - birds...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
