Skull Creek Dockside is SERG Restaurant Group's newest waterfront dining destination. The restaurant resembles an old style riverhouse, full of authentic architecture, reclaimed wood and nautical accents. The covered patio dining area, and outdoor Sharkbar, have amazing sunset views over Skull Creek. Located next door to The Skull Creek Boathouse, another SERG Landmark Seafood restaurant, Dockside will provide a family recreation area between the two restaurants, a stage overlooking the water for live music, an adult space with games and a shrimp boat playground for kids.
SERG Corporate Chef Nick Unangst says his culinary team designed the menu that ranges in a wide variety of tastes. The restaurant features an array of seafood, steak and house smoked barbecue. Dockside also has a second story banquet room with magnificent water and sunset views. Follow #docksidehhi and visit www.docksidehhi.com for complete information.

First time there. A large, busy restaurant and my first thought was to lower expectations, but was soon proved wrong. Exceptional menu, very broad, even for those who can't eat seafood! Staff was exceptional, we had a party of 8 and felt catered-to....

Not so sure. I would refer them to The Black Marlin which in my opinion has much better food. It is a lot quieter also. Every time we are in Dockside, it is difficult to hear the person next to you.

The sauce on the crispy shrimp & calamari is amazing. I’d give this place 10/10 solely based on that!!

Had casual family lunch here day after Thanksgiving. Good service and variety of options on the menu. Nice location by the water although a bit chilly during November; they had heaters and made us comfortable.

We went for the Thanksgiving Dinner, a large selection for the prix fixe meal. Nice wine options.

Of the food, the soups and salads were wonderful. The entrees were sad. First they came out cold. They fixed that, but there was no discernible difference between the roasted and smoked turkey. And even on the re-do the turkey was not at all moist, not even the dark meat. We were disappointed.

Been to Dockside several times and have always enjoyed the food, service, etc. When the main dining room is filled it can be heard to hear conversation at times. It may be the Metal ceiling.

We visited Dockside with 4 friends from out of state. They were very impressed. Our food was excellent! They loved the inside ambience, and when we went outside, they couldn't stop talking about the lights on the dock and on the trees. We now know where to bring people we want to impress. Thank You, Dockside !

We celebrated our Anniversary and my husband's birthday at Dockside. The food was delicious, our server Mark was very personable and added to the experience. SERG group restaurants always are very careful with my need for gluten free. We will definitely be back to dine there again.

Let me just say ,I believe our waiter was the best that I have found on the island. Mark Nixon. Was FANTASTIC he was on top of every thing to make sure every thing was perfect. I only hop when we return we are able to get Mark again.... the night was very Pleasant ,as the weather was not for my friends visiting from Michigan. The last night here was great to end our eating around with the Dock.

We enjoyed our meal at Skull Creek Dockside. The flounder was good and we especially enjoyed the selection of side dishes. But the best part was the dessert! Our table got three different desserts and all of them were delicious! We will make Dockside a regular stop on our trips to Hilton Head.
