Owner/Chef Matt Peota was inspired to open the seafood joint when he created a Friday night seafood meal at his Italian-American trattoria, Passero. “Our ‘Chuck’s Lobster Shack’ menu is a weekly sellout,” comments Peota. “We couldn’t think of a better opportunity to open a restaurant dedicated to fresh, easy-eating seafood. We opened the second kitchen in Passero, expanded the menu, and Chuck’s Dockside was born. My grandfather would be proud.

Peota’s late grandfather, “Chuck,” loved fishing and was known for bringing home his daily catch for dinner. Peota and his wife named their 5-year-old daughter, Charlee, who is lovingly referred to as “Chuck #2.” She also has a knack for fishing, catching her first ocean trout in the Gulf of Mexico just last year.

Chuck’s Dockside will open to the public on Wednesday, February 3. Hours include Wednesday-Sunday 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. (closed Mondays and Tuesdays). Prices range from $5-$22. Orders can be placed for pickup/curbside pickup by calling 847-814-8900 and delivery is available through Grubhub and UberEats.
