My friends and I really enjoy our time together, especially at Dockside for a Sunset Special! We had crisp hush puppies, rockfish and steamed shrimp dinners, and plenty leftover to take home for lunch. Our server was superb! This is our go-to place for seafood!

I would call to see hours of operation for the holidays. I do know they have great flounder, but not too sure about sea bass or rock fish. I think their menu is seasonal. Hope this helps.
