I had the spicy shrimp tacos and they were the best I've ever had. It was seriously unbelievable. The onion rings are huge. The service was great. We sat outside and the weather was perfect. Also $7 pitchers is cheapest around. Great beer prices.

First, there is another listing for Dockside Dave's, in St. Pete. It is the same place. Madeira Beach runs Into St. Pete Beach, so easy to confuse where one ends, and the other begins. My husband had discovered this little gem on a past business trip to the area. Thanks to Trip Advisor's great reviews, he found what is now,... More

We went here last year while on vacation at Madeira Beach. This year we are at Indian Rocks Beach so we got on the Suncoast Trolley, picking up four friends at Redington Beach who had never been before. 100% satisfaction from everybody. I tried the shrimp tacos for the first time. I will have them again. Delicious, and with a... More

Stopped by at 4pm before heading to the Dali Museum rendezvous at 5pm. Didn't know what to choose so our waitress (owner??) stepped in and gave us her unbiased take on what to order. She didn't steer is wrong…. None of us were disappointed with the grouper sandwiches / grouper tacos etc. Not fine dining but it hit the spot... More

I would not have taken the family to Dockside Dave's if it was not for Trip Advisor. It just looks like a run down dockside grill, but its clean and the service was good. We went for the grouper and we were not disappointed everyone finished lunch with clean plates. Three grouper sandwiches, the fish cooked differently in each and... More

Hubby and I went here for dinner after sunset. Food was good and fresh. Hubby had the grouper and he really liked it. I had the chicken since I am not a seafood person. Would go back the next time we are near here.

Dockside Dave's was just a walk across the street from our condo in Madeira Beach. We wanted something super casual with a good variety--we were not disappointed. We sat outside to escape the noise of a large party inside and got immediate seating. Not being a fish eater, I ordered the huge 1/2 pd burger and was not disappointed. The... More

My wife and I were very disappointed . The only good thing I can say about our dinner is that the grilled grouper was good. We ate there because the hotel recommended it, causing us to disregard the poor outside appearance and definite need for a good cleaning inside. There was a "greasy" feel to the air including our table... More
