I've been a customer for many years now. My favorite is the Grouper Sandwich. Service is good. I've never had a bad experience at either location, St Pete Beach or Madeira Beach.

The curb appeal was not the most favorable. We would've sat at a table towards the rear of the place. Everything look shabby. There was a roll of paperThe table looks dirty and the food which was brought out was rough to say the least. Presentation is not their forte. I didn't care for their onion rings which was soaked...

We have been here before so we know what to expect. We like it best for lunch while Paula is working. Yes, it is a hodge podge of a place, paper towels are on the tables, silverware is in a plastic bag (but this was the case at other places we ate), big squirt bottles of ketchup, cocktail sauces, but...

If you want fancy dining with linen napkins and a great view, then this is not the place for you, BUT if you want amazing food, great service and a relaxed atmosphere - definitely try Dockside Dave's! Absolutely the BEST Grouper Sandwich in the area!!! They offer it in several different styles - we like the

First impression when we drove up wasn't good... got inside and it seemed like a lot of misplaced items all over the walls. Walked in.. no signs to say if we could seat ourselves or wait for a server... we found out we can sit anywhere. Table we sat at was somewhat sticky...silverware was in a plastic sandwich bag.

We rarely give an excellent rating for restaurant review, but Dockside Dave's deserves one! When we were seated we were met by a very friendly server who provided excellent and timely service from that point forward. All of the staff worked as a team and were always smiling. The draft beer was served in a cold mug and the glass... More

I can't remember the name of the beer but it started with 1 and didn't seem to want to stop. I had my first grouper sandwich and believe me, it won't be my last. It is obviously a locals place to go.
