Due to the coronavirus, the Dockside Cafe’ will not be open Memorial Day Weekend and will be closed until further notice.

The Dockside Cafe’

Join us on the harbor – at the water’s edge.  The Dockside Cafe’ is an eclectic waterfront cafe’ located on Rock Hall Harbor at the Black Duck Inn.

Situated on the waters’ edge, the Dockside Cafe’ is open on Sunday Mornings from 7:30 am, offering only the freshest seasonal ingredients to create some very eclectic fare. Herbs, tomatoes and veggies are grown on the premises.

The breakfast pizzas have hooked many locals as well as boaters who visit every Sunday morning to partake of this delightful concoction. The pastries and orange juice are absolutely fresh.

The egg sandwiches and wraps can be had with tons of veggies, spiced up for the “chili heads” or played down for the kids. There is always a special wrap or pizza such as the Dockside Oscar: an abundance of tender asparagus with egg, ham, sprouts and spinach harmonized with a very delicate sherried, white cheese, lemon sauce.

Patrons relax and enjoy the spectacular view of sailboats passing (almost within arms reach), blue herons gracing the docks and osprey with fish in flight. The cafe’ is at the water’s edge. Many of the patrons come by boat, tie up and enjoy a delightful, relaxing morning at the cafés alfresco, dockside, dining area.


The Dockside has been given kudos for its eclectic menu by Coastal Living Magazine two consecutive years.
