Went there with some friends for the first time Saturday evening. They had been the previous Saturday and the same person was playing 70's songs. He was awesome! I am not a fish fan so I had the BBQ pork sandwich and it was good....More

I don't get it, Dockside with an Eglin address???? Does not make sense AT ALL ! Did you move again Ernie? So I will give you my review. We have been at the "new" Dockside, and generally are disappointed. The difference? THE AMBIANCE! While the...More

I've been following Chef Ernie for years, and our visit (with family from out of town) was the icing on the cake after giving them so many chances "hoping they'd improve". It will be a while before we give this place another chance.....

I came here with my husband and his coworkers. They are fast, fresh, and delicious! I really liked the fried pickles. My husband loves their fish tacos.

Dockside is a great place to dine - anytime. I had tried just about everything on the menu. Make sure you save room for dessert! The bread pudding is so yummy. My favorite place to meet colleagues after work.

Nice location, great views inside and out. The redfish sandwich was okay. Oysters were on special, there were a few bad ones, so we did not finish them. Great appetizers.
