Great place to eat.

We always eat at Dockside Dave's when we visit St. Pete Beach. The lightly blackened grouper sandwich is awesome, my wife loves the thick slices of tomatoes for an appetizer and the onion rings are great too.

Went on vacation and picked because of certification from trip advisor. Food was good, my husband loved the fish tacos but the place was gross, not sure if they have ever cleaned the floor and I had a hard time eating bc of the condition of the restaurant

Food is great! But after food was delivered , that was the end of our waitess . NO ONE ever came back and asked if wanted refills on drinks or "how was your food". Apparently the waitress had two jobs, bartender , waitress and cashier.....one or the other, not all three! .

Nothing fancy. We had a party of 7 adults and 3 children for an early lunch - 11:30ish. The server was not at all friendly, although she did her job OK. The grouper was very good, and others enjoyed their food too.

The bartender, doubling as a server, seated us and took our order. The excellent fish dip came out immediately, followed shortly by the tasty entrees.

Got the two places mixed up and had to travel back. Be sure to ask the location you want. We got takeout and it was good even though it wasn't real hot.

The food is excellent! We had the onion rings as a starter, and they were delicious, and huge! Fish tacos, and grouper Philly were just as great. Service was wonderful, as well.

Went here on a recommendation. From the decor and casual feel, I wasn't sure what to expect, but the food was delish and the waitstaff was attentive and super friendly. Even though we had a large group, all the food came out at the same time. The fish spread is great, and the fried mushrooms were all I needed! I... More
