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

Landed and we were starving - decided to stop at Dockside Dave's. We were seated quickly. Our server was friendly and recommended the grouper sandwich (their specialty). Everyone in the bar was nice - we chatted with some locals and the bartender. The restaurant is small with outside seating (bonus). Our food came out and the sandwich was enormous. It... More

Dockside Daves! My brother treated me and my bride to Dockside Dave's Grouper Sandwich, Onion Rings, and Fish Spread. It was good. The waitress was overworked but on top of her game. She kept the glasses full with friendly service.

Never disappoints. The freshest fish caught in the same day. A great value for the amount of food that you get. Famous for their blackened grouper, either sandwich or dinner.

My Grouper Sandwich was delicious and my husband's food was good as well. The overall atmosphere was a bit rough and not super friendly.

A particularly good pasta, especially the one with shrimps and scallops. A hearty meal served by staff definitely not in tuxedo, but with humour and style nontheless. Good service and you get value for your money.

Dockside Dave's has been in Madeira Beach for many years. They serve a great grouper sandwich along with other tasty dishes. They have a nice outdoor café area where you can dine and enjoy the great weather. They are also quite reasonable. - fun, casual dining.

The grouper here is fantastic, do not judge this place by the outside. To be truthful it looks a bit like a hole in the wall but the fish dishes are wonderful. You will come back again and again. Please try it you will not be disappointed.
