“Great surprise!”
Review of Dockside

Dockside
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 July 2016

Had not been in the area for years, despite living 20 or so minutes away. Wanted to try Calypso Bay again, found the Dockside in its place. What a great find. Tiki bar outside with live music. Ate inside, attended to by very pleasant waitress named Brittany (sp?). Prompt service, good food. Did a tapas thing with appetizers- all very good. The fried oysters were awesome. The crab dip was succulent with LOTS of crab chunks. And the cool discovery was the seafood braised cabbage- definitely worth the trip.

All-in-all, great mea, great view. Look forward to returning.

This is our second time tobthis newly opened restaurant. There has been a restaurant here by different names from at least 1975 or so. I ordered the gumbo pasta and my wife ordered the rubin sandwich and cream of crab soup. Her soup was good, she liked it. Her sandwich was also good, but the gumbo pasta was really overcooked (the noodles were all broken apart because they were way too soft). The chicken in the dish was also way overcooked (it was very dry). The sauce looked absolutely wonderful, however it had absolutely no flavor. When I brought it to the attention of the waitress, she had the charge removed. This was the right thing to do. The service was very good with no complaints. This was our second visit, the previous time I had the fried oysters and my wife had the fish and chips. Hers was very good, but mine was quite greasy and loaded with oil. Maybe they know when I am coming!! We will try it one more time.
