Skull Creek Dockside Restaurant
We always enjoy our meals at Dockside and the view can’t be beat!
Food was good and service was very good. Easy to find and plenty of parking. Would love to come back when it’s warm and spend time outside.
Great lunch with a wonderful view!
Good food. She Crab Soup a must. Excellent service.
Great lobster tail and broiled fish. Upcharge for mac and cheese or asparagus side is needless in my opinion though.
Thank you for the 5 star review, Deb!
Meh. Not good.. not bad.
Taylor, please let us know if you have any specific feedback you would like to share, in terms of food and/or service. Thank you!
This is our go-to restaurant when we have out of town visitors. The food is always great, especially the calamari appetizer. But we appreciate the fact that Dockside takes reservations.
We celebrated 2 birthdays... great food, atmosphere and service!!
Thank you for celebrating with us!
Dockside has a great outdoor bar, a varied menu and good food... very enjoyable
Great staff and food, will be back again soon!
Thank you for the 5 star review!
Dinner with my wife
I was underwhelmed most importantly by the food. The prices were pretty high and the portions were small. The casino flounder was one of the smallest pieces of fish I've seen - even with the stuffing considered. The view was really nice but everything else was mediocre.
Came back with friends tonight since we had such a good experience a few years ago when we first came here. Three of us had smoked entrees which is why we came back and the fourth had a fish dish. Everyone liked their meals. The service wasn't as good as what I remembered from last time but wasn't bad. Prices are also reasonable and we highly recommend it. Go and have the smoked meats, you'll like it!
Thank you for the review! Happy to hear you enjoyed our House Smoked BBQ! We will continue to focus on keeping our service standards high!
Soup was excellent!! Mushrooms just ok. Stuffed potatoes a little too cranberry. Staff excellent! Ambiance excellent. Have decided that we like Dockside better than Boathouse after 12 years.
Dockside has an excellent menu with good food and service. The views of the water are great.
We could not have been happier with the food and especially the service for my daughter’s birthday dinner. Can’t wait to return!
Thank you for Celebrating with Us!
First time dining here. Live locally and will be a place I return to with friends and visitors
One of my favorites. Great food, even better view!
Thank you for the 5 star review, Amy!
A nice spot to eat and enjoy the river views. My objection was the background noise. Millennial music choices for a senior demographic? Not likely. Fans that add white noise to the rap drone. But the food was good. The service was good,
Thank you for your review, Jerry!
We (2) ate outside and it was lovely. We both enjoyed our lunches. This is as it should be, right?
Thank you for dining with us!
Brunch was fantastic. Dinner was very good but the server was a bit snooty.
Jeff, Thank you for the 5 star review!
It was very overpriced and a waste of time and money. Inside it looks like a typical cheaper beach/ dock restaurant. Was so disappointed. Spent a lot of money for less then average seafood. The ambiance was loud and not nice and all. Again cheap looking restaurant. So not worry it!!! And to top it off the broccoli we had as our side was raw no seasoning and awful. Went to Hudson’s a few days later and it was amazing!!! The seafood was the best we’ve ever had and done perfect and the sides were exceptional. So worth the price!!!
Boots, We renovated the restaurant just prior to our opening in October 2017. Many of our guests admire the riverhouse charm of the salvaged tin ceiling, wooden beams and rare Pecky Cypress found throughout the restaurant. If you would like to share more about your recent visit, please message us. Your feedback is very important!
We celebrated my son’s birthday. The food was excellent, the outside seating was well covered from the rainy weather and the servers were most efficient.
We enjoyed a very good low country boil, and scallops dinner. The dessert was delicious too! Always a wonderful experience! I also have always been seated at the requested reservation time!
Small portion of a crab cake for my wife. 1 small crab cake for $14.25. Triggerfish was very good.
Our cocktails were not mixed when we got them...
Desserts were delicious. Service was good. Ambiance was excellent on the outdoor patio.
I had lunch and dinner there last week.
We remember the previous restaurant that was in this location and it was a bit higher end. That said we enjoyed ourselves and the service was great especially as we were sitting as far away from the kitchen where we wanted. We will return here again and enjoyed the food and our service. The She Crab soup was nice there. This one will stay on our list when we return for another week stay in HHI.
Thank you for the 5 star review!
The bartender was dismissive bordering on rude. The soup came out cold and SALTY. Our server really did nothing more than take our order. She never came to check on us or ask if we wanted anything else.
Can't beat the beautiful setting. I love that you can make reservations because Dockside does get very crowded.
Thank you for the 5 star review, Kathy!
Thank you for the 5 star review, Molly!
Interesting menu. Too many fried foods, and limited healthy fresh veggies. I had the oysters on the half shell. They were on the small side, a couple barely legal size, and over priced. Fish selection for a coastal tourist hub was miserable.
Great atmosphere, great service! Will definitely go back.
Thank you for the 5 Star Review!
Chicken ribs dry over cooked. One table extremely noisy. Nobody did anything

Not good food.
Douglas, If you have any specifics you would like to share, please let us know! Your feedback is the only way we can improve.
Need more chicken/ beef choices for non seafood eaters.
All 8 of us enjoyed our meals. Beautiful setting. Helpful wait staff.
Thank you Robert!
It’s a shame Dockside doesn’t offer military discounts.
Brad, We are confused because we do offer Military discounts.
We had guests in and took them to one of our favorite restaurants on the island. The hostess kindly altered our reservation so we could enjoy a nice evening outdoors, and our guests could enjoy a Skull Creek sunset view. I should have had one of the seafood specials which I always enjoy but my wife and I tried different flatbreads which were merely okay. Our guests enjoyed the barbecue and the kale salad while not as thrilled by the mac and cheese and coleslaw accompaniments. Still great service in a lovely setting.
Jeffrey, Thank you for bringing your guests to dine with us here at Dockside! We will share your feedback with our culinary team. If you have any specifics, in regards to the dishes you ordered, please let us know!
Beautiful evening on Skull Creek
Thank you for dining with us!
It was a rainy day, but the great open view made it seem a lot less dreary. The food was good, we both had the Baja Tacos with Rice and Beans substituted for fries. The grouper was lightly breaded and nicely fried. Slaw and other toppings were fresh and flavorful.
Thank you for the 5 star review, Bill!
Food was outstanding. Amazing view. Great ambiance. Service was okay. It was speedy but waiter had bit of an attitude.
Thank you for dining with us! We do apologize the service fell short of our standards. Coastal Hospitality is what we are about and we will be sure to continually coach our staff to provide it!
