Little hole in the wall place with great food and great service, and we love those places! This is where the locals eat. We loved it! Highly recommend it!

I just had the Scallops and they were the best that I ever had. My wife ordered the fish tacos and finished her plate for the first time. #1 of all time restaurants. We will definitely be back and already recommended it to 4 people at our hotel.

I had ordered some seafood chowder and got this horrible pink slop that looked awful and had no taste whatsoever. Come on guys , you can do better than this. The onion rings were great but thats not what I came for. Surely you can come up with some kind of seafood soup that doesn't look and taste like that.

Fun little place with great people...the lightly blackened grouper sandwich was my pick with a small (you're kidding??) half order of onion rings! My husband had the huge burger that was juicy and tasty...and the rest of my onion rings!!

Cafeteria seafood at it's best! Never had floresent Pink Clam Chowder. Asked for a glass of Sangria and received a glass of cinnamon! Terrible drink, sent it back. There was 6 of us and after we were done eating we all had upset stomachs. Will not be returning.

There is a reason southern Living said that this was the best grouper sandwich in the South! My husband got the 1/2 pound lightly fried sandwich and I got the grilled scallops and waffle fries which was a huge portion...definitely a hit! But the best part was our server....she was so funny and thoughtful...and OMG where do they get those... More

This place is easy to miss but well worth a visit... best onions I've had in years and a very respectable fish stew.

Took the family to Dockside Dave's again this year. It has become a tradition and they never fail. Go for the grouper sandwich and a side order of onion rings. Can't go wrong at Dave's

Every time I come to St.Pete Beach, I eat as many grouper sandwiches as days I am there. I am not a fish eater, but love the sweetness of grouper. After many years of visiting, I finally was invited by friends to Dockside Dave's. The menu says that they have the Best Grouper Sandwich (and they offer to cook it... More
