They are very into grouper sandwiches in this part of Flow-rida and man this one was epic. A big, fresh chunk of grouper that hangs off the bun, what more do you need? I got it blackened, it was da bomb. The seafood bisque was great too, it's pink because they add burgundy wine to it. Dee-lish.

The place is a bit old, but it adds to the charm. Great grouper with large potions. Staff very knowledgeable about all menu items. Have eaten here several times, never had a bad meal. Looking forward to my next grouper sandwich.

Dont be put off by the casual atmosphere or average aesthetics, this restaurant knows food! Especially seafood, local fresh produce cooked to perfection, the staff are courteous, professional & very knowledgable on their menu, unfortunately a customer next to us left after dining and was killed by a car outside, however the staff were first to arrange medical help, calm...

My husband, me and our 2 teenage boys went for dinner at Dockside Dave's. The fresh fish was amazing and the portions are huge. We tried alligator bites for an appetizer and we all loved it. The restaurant is small and VERY casual. We didn't realize it was a restaurant at first. We thought it was just a bar so... More

Great food and service. Would highly recommend the grouper and the royal red shrimp. Looks like the local place to be but the food, service and quantity was well worth our 20 minute drive!

Best fried shrimp and clam chowder that I've ever tasted! Casual spot. Sometimes there's a wait but its worth it. Give it a try sometime!

My wife and I tried this in November 2014. We had the grouper bites for appetizer, my wife had the grouper sandwich and I had a burger. Everything ordered was top notch, they do have outdoor seating available and the service was very good

Came down to fla to visit family and I took a small group out to dockside Dave's after I heard they had really good grouper. We arrived and the place isn't much to look at it appears to be a converted house but we went in for a look. Inside they had a small dining room and outside seating which... More

Had hungry kids with us so we stopped in Dockside Dave's. Looked like a little mom and pop-hole in the wall place which I generally find really good food. Not the case this time. Girls ordered grouper bites and a hot dog off kids menu. Husband and I were going to eat crab elsewhere so I only ordered the lobster... More
