I took 15 girls from the neighborhood for lunch. Every single one was pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. I believe many will return. I found it to be so delightful that I will be bringing 35 ladies from my church. They are most willing to accommodate our needs. We will have a private dining area upstairs. I would highly recommend this place

Walked in & did not know what to expect. There were no prices on board out front. Blown away! Everything was excellent. The Lobster & Shrimp Bisque, the Ceasar Salad, the 12 oz ribeye, the Seafood Platter & Jumbo Shrimp with seafood dressing topped with Lobster Sauce EXCELLENT!

I have been visiting the Myrtle Beach area for the last 25 years. I usually try a new place each time I vacation at the beach. I thought Dave's Dockside would be a nice place and a good value for the money. WRONG! I should have known that something was wrong as soon as I arrived and the specials had no prices. I was seated with a nice view of the swamp (Murrels Inlet) and placed our drink orders. I ordered a sweet tea and the other two members in my party ordered unsweetened tea and a diet coke. When the drinks arrived I took a sip of my sweet tea only to spit it back into the glass because it was old and tasted horrible. Our waitress apologized and brought us new after 10 minutes but I should have walked out then. Not me, I gave them another chance to get our dinners correct. I ordered fish and chips ( It was a special) the other two meals were a combination ( Pick 3) which was shrimp, scallops, and flounder and the last meal was 10 grilled shrimp with broccoli and rice. When the meals came, the shrimp dish broccoli was ice cold, the fish and chips was a children's order, and the combination platter was completely wrong. It was suppose to be flounder, shrimp, scallops. Instead it had flounder, deviled crab, and fried oysters. After consulting with the waitress she brought the items that were missing. I expected something other than I am sorry. I already know they are sorry. I figured that out as soon as I got there. We did not order dessert but when my bill came it was 86.00. 22.00 dollars for fish and chips, are you kidding me! The combination platter was only 23.00 I could not believe it. I paid it and went to leave but one of the people in my party went to the mens room on the way out. After a while I went in to see what was taking so long. As it turns out, the door on the bathroom stall had a broken handle and my friend could not get out of the bathroom. When I brought this issue up to the manager of the restaurant, not only did he offer no apology for anything I had went through that night. He told me that he would put a sign on the door, I guess that was suppose to make me feel better. I will never eat here again and good luck to you if you choose to.

Felt compelled to write after reading some of these misleading reviews. Have now been to Dave's twice (summer 2010 & 2011); and both times were excellent! Both visits we were seated very quickly, and the atmosphere was great. Our waiter was Dylan and he did a great job making us feel welcome and valued as customers. He was very accomodating on menu selections and his service was tip-top. The food was fantastic both times. The restaurant completely lived up to the description I gave my family companions (their first visit). Would suggest that the staff servicing the outside location stop using the dining room to travel back and forth from kitchen. However, this is the ONLY thing I can think of to suggest for an improvement. We had a great time, and certainly plan to go back (in fact, my daughter wants to go back tonight) After boasting of the place to my companions, Dave's lived up to it in every way.

My husband and I ate at Dockside for my husband's birthday. It was the worst food that I have ever paid for. I had the seafood trio and my husband had the ribeye. The seafood was no more than seasoned with something similar to Mrs. Dash. Gilligan's has better flavor of seafood (a chain restaurant with seafood platters about $15). For $25 the fish was flounder...really? My husband ordered his ribeye medium...well when the beef is brown throughout then that is NOT medium. The entrees were served with 2 pieces of broccoli and a scoop of plain wild rice (no flavor) or a dried up baked potatoe. I have worked in fine dining since I was 16 and this restaurant should be ashamed! I have eatten at every fine dining restaurant from Pawleys through Myrtle Beach...DONT GO TO DOCKSIDE!! For the same prices try a place like Austins Ocean One and taste the great difference.

Maui served over grits was superb. Also the appetizer of potatoes, cheese, peppers, etc was outstanding. All five of us enjoyed our meals. Fine place to unwind after a hard day at the beach!

I had Captain Dave's eaely bird special and it was terrible. I had the grilled chicken and I got 2 very small very over cokked chicken breasts, a scoop of wild rice and 2 pieces of broccoli along with some fried squash as an appitizer and a very good dessert. The services was even worse the meal. I am a local and have found the few times I have tried this restaurant it is most often the same.

This was the best food that I had in SC. We made a reservation for 3 & they seated us as soon as we walked through the doors on a Saturday night. Every other restaurant we had been to on this vaca had been atleast one hour wait to be seated. It was a very fancy restaurant, but managed to still be family friendly. My little girl got a grilled hot dog & fries that came with icecream for only $3.99. My main course meal cost $32, but it was worth every penny & I got close to the most expensive thing on the menu.

Memorial Day weekend, but they should have been prepared! 40 minute wait. (parking lots were full all over the inlet) Took about 45 minutes to get our entrees (4)and one of them was wrong. Shrimp and crab bisque had very little seafood, tiny bits, and was tomatoey. Friednshrimp and French fries were overcooked. Grilled seafood trio was blackened. Hush puppies were about the size of a nickel and sweet, served with raspberry butter (not what we like). Caesar salad with grilled shrimp came to table when the other 3 of us were almost finished. Too noisy to enjoy the piano player. Pricey. Check was $48 for 2 of us, without any drinks, just water. Would not go back.

My husband and I ate at Capt. Dave's in January when we were at the beach for a couple of days. We had seen a recommendation by Southern Living and thought we would try it. I was so shocked by our experience. We were not in there more than 15 or 20 minutes. We were given a handful of hushpuppies and then our meal. We had ordered Grouper. The one piece of grouper was very small and about 1/4" thick. We also had a very small baked potato and a few asparagus sprouts. THAT WAS IT! I have never been so dissappointed in my life. We eat out at least once a week and have never experienced anything like this. The total was over $50.00 and we both felt cheated. When the manager came by to see how things were, my husband politely said there was not enough food. The manager replied that we could get dessert. We did not say anything further, but were furious, and stopped by Outback on the way back to the hotel for a large dessert and coffee. Don't think that we are hicks and just don't know a good meal when we see one. One of our favorite restaurants at the beach is "Cagneys" which is in the same price range, and it actually takes at least an hour to enjoy the meal and we don't leave hungry! This may have been unusual but it is our experience and we have shared it with many people since then.

I have a house in Pawleys and was always trying to find a great restaurant with a great location and after 2 yrs. We found Capt, Daves Dockside in Murrells Inlet! We come here quite often having a fantastic dinners every time we dine here! After dinner we make it out to there outside Deck bar where all fun begins! We met Sasha their bartender 2 yrs.ago and we always are looking to seeing her since she makes that bar so much fun that why we are always come to visit I would highly reccomend coming to Capt. Daves Dockside reason why we always come back! We laugh while were there the entire time! She so funny with the way she introduces everyone sitting at the bar to each other where people get to meet and when we come back we have always known someone sitting the bar!

Capt Daves is a family restaurant that has served some of the most wonderful food on the grand strand for over 20 years. The atmosphere is casual yet the experience is anything but ordinary. There is something for everyone here. Th view is the best one in Murrells Inlet! Chef Richard Is an amazing culinary expert, He's always providing a world class menu with delicious specialty items he creates himself like the ( Watermelon Vingarette which is worth its weight in gold) Bring your family, friends and out of town visitors to the most exceptional restaurant In Murrells Inlet.The majority of the restaurants around Daves Dockside offer no distinction. The same basic menus fried fish, beef and seafood. Daves puts their own twist on the most simple of dishes to ensure a culinary treat. They did my hosted my daughters wedding and it was a memorable excellent experience! I would recommend this place for all functions big or small for a party your guests will be talking about for a long time to come.

My wife and I have scoured the Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet, Litchfield/ Pawleys area for 15 yrs., and Dave's Dockside has it! Excellent menu that changes often...freshest ingredients -esp. seafood, well prepared in a professional yet relaxing atmosphere. Above average wine list. The service here is also excellent. You can see right into the kitchen, so I can't believe some of the crap stated on here. We are going back in Jan. 2010 for my birthday - wouldn't want to go anywhere else!
