On a pretty day when you want a nice view on the waterfront, this is the place to go! It's not fine dining, it's a joint where you grab a hot dog and a beer. For that it is PERFECT! Relaxing, laid-back, and a pretty good hot dog! We often go to The Dock House when we are in Beaufort... More

I worked at Cape Lookout this summer, and Dock House was our favorite place to hang out on the weekends. The best part? Barry playing music on the boardwalk on Monday and Tuesday nights! It's a great place to have a drink and relax on the water. They have a pretty good beer selection and the company is nice. However,... More

Processed cheese, wonder bread buns and overall tasteless food. If you think McDonalds and Kraft Mac/cheese are good food, then you'll like this. If you are used to something with better quality ingredients, then this isn't the place for you. The view, however, is great.

Service wasn't the quickest, but we weren't in a hurry. Very nice view and casual atmosphere. Go when the weather is nice! Sandwiches were good. Their Lunch hours are 11:30-4pm, which is nice for a late lunch.

Had some friends in town, and of course, we were Beaufort bound. Had never been here so we stopped in for a beer. If you can get past the inches of dust and the sticky counter/floor, not a bad place to just to have a drink. Didn't eat as it just wasn't clean feeling.

We chose to eat at this restaurant because of the outdoor seating on the second floor. It had a great view of the water and had a great atmosphere. The food was good and had a very friendly waitress. My husband got the flounder which he really enjoyed. The menu stated that the food is fresh to order and might... More

For starters the good. It has a really. Ice spot on the water. And at night with the music it's kind of to sit back and relax. 2 stars is because we were hoping to get fresh seafood in Beaufort and we were told that nothing there is fresh it's all frozen. That takes the joy out of sitting on... More

Grab a table on the 2nd floor for a wonderful view and pleasant breeze. First time having a shrimp burger and it was outstanding. Try a shipwrecked for a nice refreshing drink. Service was a little slow, but worth the wait. Have a drink and enjoy the view.

Have eaten here multiple times over the year. Always bring friends from out of town here to enjoy the atmosphere, view, charm, music and food. This is one of my favorite go to places on the waterfront. The food is good but I would maybe not choice if I wanted really good seafood. They do have some really good other... More
