I attended a wedding here and the venue is lovely. I was not impressed with the wedding planner who seemed rushed and disorganized. There was a competing party next to us that was playing rap music during our ceremony. I think any qualified wedding planner would have made sure that did not happen. The ceremony was only 5 minutes long. The staff was helpful if you knew what to ask for but did not offer any assistance or be proactive. I would think that their experience with weddings far exceeds ours. There was an issue with the seating chart and in general I thought if they were more organized the planner would not have to had to bug the bride as much on her big day. I think the Herrington is an example of a venue that knows it is a beautiful space and then lacks on service.

I've been here three times now, and they have maintained the same quality standard each time. Kudos.
Disappointing. I had high hopes the new ownership would do good things here, but alas another restaurant run by service industry amateurs with no taste. Menu has no clear theme or expertise. Is there even a head chef? It is all over the place and everything is at best mediocre. I mean the name of your restaurant is dockside, let's feature some fresh local and seasonal seafood with creativity. Menu needs to be seriously pared down and focused. Feels like it was designed by a committee of 16yr old boys who only want steak and pasta. (Don't even get me started on the physical menu font, layout, and general set up. I mean, come on... use a template) Food generally is poorly cooked. Little to no attention paid to sides or plating. All the salads were way overdressed. Crab cakes were flavorless and soggy. Nothing tastes home cooked. Seems like it is all straight off the Sysco truck. Service was terrible. I will usually continue to patron a watering hole for their good service and atmosphere alone, but the staff here is just bad. Poorly trained and ill mannered towards guests, they just need to try harder and get better management. I'll maybe try a few more time this summer in case they turn things around. But South County Cafe is just so much better.
Consider yourself lucky if you can get the young lady seating you to seat you in the dining room because this is our second time here and each time she refused to sest us in the dining room and we sat it the bar area. It is very loud and we are old people and this is not a good combination. It is very difficult to hear someone talking. I had broiled scallops which were quarter size and there were 7 of them. For $22. I would think you would get a few more. They were cooked very well, but very salty to taste. My wife had cream of crab soup, which was the highlight of the meal. It was excellent. She also had the 'fish and chips' which has NO CHIPS! It was over done and dried out. Overall it below average for me. The average pricing is around $25.00. I would go to Pettie Greens -I have no stake in Pettie Greens either. The waite staff was better than average.
