We come here every October for delicious fresh seafood and have yet to be disappointed! The grouper is the best anywhere. The shrimp tacos are amazing. We always love anything here we order, honestly. Oh, don't forget a side of onion rings to share! Very casual beach atmosphere and the friendliest of servers, love this place!

Dockside Daves is a staple on the beach. When we arrived there was quite a queue, but because my Mom is a local,we got a good little table. You can ask for a Grouper sandwich,pretty much anyway you like it.I had it lightly blackened and my Mom had the country style. I have to say i preferred the country style.... More

Got takeout from here twice during our weekend stay in Madeira Beach. Grouper sandwiches and cheeseburgers were delicious! Staff were super friendly too. Had some Sangria while we waited for the food, also very good. Don't miss this place!

This was my 2nd visit here and I have to say this was the best! We come here every year but overlooked this last few times. A great catch! The food is fresh and the atmosphere is just what you'd expect on the beach!

Dave's is a casual place with mostly reasonable prices. Black grouper is the only fish available. I had it grilled and my wife had fish tacos and both were tasty. Dave's is fairly standard fare but worth a visit.

We visited Dockside Dave's twice and it was great both times. The grouper sandwich is the best my husband has ever had. The fried shrimp were huge and pretty good. The gator bites were great too. The onion rings were huge!!! A must stop if you are in the Madeira area this is a must eat restaurant :)

If you love fish this is the place to go. The blackened grouper was so good I don't have words to express! I recommend this place to everyone. Service was very good. I will go back if I'm in the area.

We stayed in Madeira beach in September & went to Dockside Dave's 3xs. It had the best fresh fish & we never left hungry. Wasn't overly expensive either. Lunch or dinner...it was great.

This was my second visit to dockside dave's. Grouper is the best around! I had the chargrilled grouper sandwich- delicious. My son had clam chowder. It was too thick like it had been sitting all day. We also had onion rings that I didn't care for. Bottom line- go for grouper! The place itself doesn't have much ambiance. Outside seating... More

Some of the best grouper to be had in Madeira Beach. AND, at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.
