Both of our meals were very good. The service was good. Although even though I inquired about foods that I was allergic to they were still in some of the items. They offered to replace them which was great. We will stop by there again.

We had some fresh steamed crab and fish and chips. We sat on the outdoor deck next to the bay, The food was awesome, but the group was delighted to be joined by two sea lions, an otter, and a supervisory pelican. Of course, the obligatory seagulls made there presence known. A cheerful small bird also hopped between tables, hoping... More

I suggest making reservations. It was a very busy night but the service was excellent. We had a party of four and all our dishes were tasty.

All 4 of us really enjoyed our dinner here. The staff was very nice while the food was very good. My youngest, 9 yrs old, devoured her plate of clams! The black cod I had was delicious....all in all this place really satisfied our craving for seafood!

Yes we returned and its been a couple of years since we ate at this great restaurant. I love the clam chowder. It is excellent. My wife loves her "Oysters Rockefeller" and so I! Everything is great!!! They serve delicious sour dough bread. Highly recommend this place. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g32746-d839481-r281490202-Tognazzini_s_Dockside_Restaurant-Morro_Bay_San_Luis_Obispo_County_California.html#

We enjoyed a delicious seafood dinner at Dockside. The menu includes some non-seafood choices as well. There are the standard, daily choices supplemented with daily specials. Servings are very generous. Service is friendly and atmosphere is casual.

I went there some days ago and it was terrible! We ate some linguini and they wasn't good for a only big reason. The fish was fresh and it was very good but the spaghetti were full of spices and the taste wasn't good. The plate was full of garlic and the broth was too much, it was like a... More

Had a fulfilling lunch here on a misty, drizzly day. Fried scallops were cooked to perfection; you may think frying would demean a scallop, but these were perfectly done. A bowl of clam chowder was HUGE and wonderfully warming. Oysters on the half shell: perfect. Annie's service was friendly even though she was swamped. Loved watching the activity on the... More

We stopped here for lunch on our drive from SF to LA. How lucky were we !! Had 2 portions of raw Oysters and a plate of Crab cakes. The oysters were so fresh and we made a wonderful discovery: eating oysters with horse radish sauce ! Quite unique. The crab cakes were the best we've ever eaten. So much... More
