Fried pickles are covered in grease. Squash was so soggy. I would not recommend this place. Bartender was very nice

I'm from the Tidewater area of Virginia. I surely thought that this seafood restaurant would rival Virginia's and Maryland's. Even small restaurants in those places can serve some awesome food. I was sadly mistaken. I ordered a scallop basket. It was horrible. There was water encased in each fried scallop that made the breading fall off. The hush puppies weren't... More

Dined there on a busy Saturday night and could not have been more impressed. Kendall and Amelia were phenomenal in taking care of our party and the food was all outstanding. The hushpuppies and crab balls were great appetizers and then the fried shrimp and prime rib were both cooked to perfection. Two thumbs way up, will definitely be back... More

We had lunch here and can't say enough good things about the experience. My wife and I were on the road and stopped to spend the afternoon in Savannah along with our Doberman. We got a nice table outside, where dogs are welcome, and they brought a pail full of ice water for our dog to drink from while we... More

We were a large party (one other family was seated when we walked in) so wanted the least crowded restaurant in hopes of quicker service. Unfortunately, people quickly filled the restaurant after us which may be why service was slow. Once the food arrived it was hot and good with no complaints. The bathrooms were less than desirable which is... More

Fabulous place, wonderful location and the usual warm Southern welcome. Deep fried oyster po'boy and fried green tomatoes are to die for.

I'm kind of a crab cake snob. I'm very picky. I got the crab cake basket at Dockside, and I absolutely loved it. I asked for the mango chutney to go with it instead of the tartar sauce, and that made it even more yummy. The fries were crinkle fries, and they were cooked to perfection. I don't usually like...

Our server was really sweet. The restaurant wasn't that busy so she talked to us for a while telling us about the history of Savannah and the building and herself. I feel bad that I can't remember her name. We were kind of disappointed in the food she suggested though. She told us the seafood diablo and the scallops pasta... More

Family walked the street on the riverfront; which had plenty eating options. We stopped here because it was closest to our hotel (Hilton Garden Inn). It turned out to be a great stop...you MUST order the shrimp and grits!
