Daniel Island’s entertainment options are growing! A new a family-friendly dining and music destination on Daniel Island is opening to the public this week.

Located on Island Park Drive in the heart of the community, Dockery’s will offer elevated regional cuisine and house-brewed craft beer in a venue that will feature an eclectic lineup of local and regional artists performing live on the Dockery’s stage.

In its vibrant, 11,000-square-foot space, Dockery’s will serve a seasonal menu seven days a week including lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. The restaurant will open with dinner service only, adding lunch and brunch service at a later date. Guests can expect dishes created from local ingredients in state-of-the-art kitchen facilities that feature a live-fire grill, smoker, rotisserie, and wood-burning oven.

With the only brewery on Daniel Island, Dockery’s will create a variety of well-balanced traditional and experimental beers to pair with the restaurant’s cuisine. A full menu of specialty cocktails, a diverse wine list, and a selection of rare bottled beers round out the bar program. The space will accommodate indoor and outdoor dining, with bar and table seating inside, as well as seating on an outdoor patio with a separate outdoor bar.

Central to the Dockery’s concept is its role as a music venue and listening room several nights a week. Guests will enjoy free, live entertainment every week on the Dockery’s stage in addition to special ticketed events several times a month. The lineup will include both local musicians and regional and national touring acts.

The restaurant is now hiring full time staff for all positions front and back of house. For more information on the forthcoming concept, visit Dockery’s online at
