Went with a group of 10. Restaurant is small, but they move fast! Ordered grouper platter for only $18! It was amazing. Seafood soup is to die for! Veggies are so delicious. Everything was fresh and tasty.

Back at Dockside Dave's again. :) They are consistently great. We eat there probably every couple of weeks not only for the great food but also for the fun atmosphere and wonderful staff. Had the blackened Grouper dinner this time and it was awesome, as always. Fresh and seasoned to perfection. Can't wait to go back!

We were recommended this restaurant by the motel owner. When we arrived we met a couple from Tampa who told us they come here to eat & then order dinners to go. It serves the best grouper around. It is served a couple of different ways. Our whole family enjoyed the meal. Will be back again this year.

You'll find great grouper sandwiches, outstanding onion rings and much, much more! Warning--a half order of onion rings is plenty for 2 to share!

Laid back atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. Great fish tacos, we had both blackened & grilled. Children's menu was good & the kids enjoyed their meals. Gator appetizer was pretty good. Service was attentive.

You get a lot of food for a reasonable price, but the onion rings were dripping in oil and were tasteless. The blackened grouper was not that special.

We had a great meal at Dockside Dave's. There were 5 of us. We ordered 4 grouper sandwiches all prepared differently (country fried, buffalo, blackened,and grilled.) All were great. Also had an order of shrimp pasta which had a great creamy sauce and lots of shrimp. Oh, and the onions rings are thick and perfectly cooked. Yes, we over ordered,... More

The last day of our vacation, I wanted some good Grouper. I was nervous about going to a seafood restaurant because my husband is allergic to shellfish and I thought there wouldn't be anything he would enjoy. We found that they also had chicken fingers on the menu (one of his favorites) and onion rings. He thoroughly enjoyed those while... More

It's great to see a non-chain restaurant in a touristy area that can provide a good bang for the buck. Portions were generous. Grouper was excellent. Onion rings and fried mushrooms were very good. Conch fritter were ok. The cheeky waitress provided good and fun service. I love the dry humor.

Stopped by here with family after a friend said that it was good. Onion rings were to die for. I had a blacked grouper sandwich which was delicious. The waffle fries were good, just a bit salty for my taste. Overall, good. I would definitely come back.
