Unable to enjoy the outside, Mother Nature had sting winds, so we were suggested to go upstairs. Small, but ok. Was not that busy it seemed, however we felt longer than usual to bring a sandwich and salad. Had the special soft shelled crab sandwich, very good.

regardless if you are looking for great food for lunch or dinner, a cup of coffee with a view, or an adult beverage after any day that ends with Y, this is one of my favorites on the waterfront anywhere I have been... wonderful staff, often excellent music, ( not every night ) local seafood served by those who enjoy...

Went there for the buffet breakfast because we wanted to eat on the waterfront. The view was nice but the food was average at best. Service was good after we got someone to wait on our table.

This is a must do, can seat outside on ground level or on second deck, amazing views of the Marina and coast. Great place to take in sunrise or sunset. Great value for the food. Very well done fried food, just the right amount of breading that doesn't overwhelm the taste of the food.

Great views, great service and tasty food. Hubby had shrimp and grits which were just ok. I had a mahi-mahi sandwich which was tasty. Not a repeat location, though.

The Dock House has a good buffet with a variety of food that is average but the service and view is spectacular. If the weather is pleasant and you can sit outside you can not beat the view and service. I have eaten there twice and it was good both times and I am not a fan of a buffet.... More

If you're up for a lukewarm breakfast buffet of starch and tepid eggs, this is the place. On the plus side, the view from the upstairs deck is lovely, and service is good. We much preferred having a drink on the deck upstairs the night before.

Sit outside on the upstairs deck for a great view! However, don't count on a hot healthy breakfast. They offered a breakfast buffet or served shrimp'n'grits (the daily special). We opted for the buffet, which consisted of eggs, grits, bacon, sausage, fried french toast sticks, and biscuits. Not a piece of fruit or whole grain anything to be found. It... More

While traveling to Beaufort we always stop by the Dock House for a drink. It is right on the boardwalk and is a great spot to grab some sun and watch the boats come into the slips right in front of you. There is indoor and covered dining as well. Make sure to try a "Shipwreck" while there.

The two stars is only for the location. Good place to see sunset and horses on Carrot island (that is NOT the island where the ferry takes you to see wild horses). Nachos were a messy mound of velveeta type cheese. Not a very clean place.
