Great food

The best grouper sandwich I have ever had! Make sure to order the amberjack spread as well. The buffalo shrimp was excellent too. Definitely a must have if you visit Madeira Beach

We went because someone told us the locals eat there. It was NOT crowded when we went at 5:30 (should have been a clue) and everything was over priced and over cooked! EVERYTHING was ala carte. Could not even get French fries with a sandwich without it being an add on! Like I said, if the locals like it they... More

Ate here on vacation. It was very good. Can't go wrong with the grouper sandwich. Huge. Onion rings are huge. Gator tail bites were very good as well. Daughter had fried shrimp and scallops. Very good. Would definitely recommend stopping by.

Staying on the beach,, walked across the street for carryout sandwiches. Country Fried and Blackened grouper sandwiches were excellent. Fix it your way with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and tarter on the side. The wait was short and the service was very friendly and fast. Dockside Dave's is a must visit while you are on Madeira Beach.

After watching a beautiful sunset on the beach, we decided to try this restaurant, we arrived before 9pm, and unfortunately they close at 10ish, on the board! Dinner ordered and arrived speedily, no problem, then however lights went out, floors were mopped, table cleared whilst we still ate, no further drinks or desserts were offered, in my opinion, if they...
