Portions are to die for, almost literally, they are huge. The batter fried grouper sandwich , well let's just say you don't need the bun, just eat the fish or you will be so miserable.I do feel they should throw in a side for the price though.

The lobster roll will now the what I compare all others to. It was delish. The waitress was friendly and the restaurant was clean. My husband and I were pleased with our meals. So good, and fresh.

Last year we visited the Other Dockside Dave's (Madeira Beach - Same owner) and my grouper sandwich was the best I'd ever had. This visit I hit the southern Dockside Dave's Grill. Now I can say this, too, is the best grouper sandwich I've ever had. They're equally outstanding. Mine was blackened and about 1/2 pound. Absolutely no doubt it... More

They haVE awards hanging on the walls for the Grouper and man is it good. I always order mine lightly blackened with cheddar cheese. Other items that are a must when my family eats there; The french onion soup, Fish spread, and ONION RINGS. Service is always great and there always locals at the bar to make the experience even...

We were a little hesitant to dine at Dockside Dave's because it seemed a bit dated and shabby... but we stayed, and enjoyed the biggest, tastiest grouper sandwich ever... outstanding in every way. The service was also the best we'd experienced at a casual eatery at St Pete Beach. They deserve the accolades they have gotten. Dockside Dave's exceeded our... More

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!!
