we ate here our first day at St. Pete Beach. Small place on Gulf Blvd, not a lot of atmosphere, casual dining. Our party had 3 grouper dinners, a salad, and grouper nuggets. The onion rings and calamari are very good. I would pass on the key lime pine, not "limey" at all, on a chocolate graham cracker crust. Weird... More

I was traveling on business and spending a week in Tampa St. Pete area. My business associate suggested Dockside Dave's for the fried grouper. My all time favorite fried grouper sandwich is at Islamorada Fish Company. This one ranks right there! It is fresh awesome grouper. Very crisp beer batter! So Tasty! It was about an 8x8 inch piece of... More

Had the grouper sandwich and onion rings. Best grouper sandwich I have ever had. This was my favorite meal in St Petes. Everyone of us loved it. Must stop by here. Try the horseradish sauce with the onion rings. Writing this review makes me wish I was back there. Very good.

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
