I ordered the Sampler Trio and had it fried. It was more filling than I expected. The fries were average at best but the grouper was good and so were the shrimp and scallops. I ordered the Dockside Lemonade drink. It was very tasty but...More

The gaucaumole starter was very good. Our waiter, Mike, was very good and attentive. The grouper is always their "go-to" dish

This is a fun spot with good mood music, cool service and a wide range of snacks (mostly seafood). The grouper sandwich is very fresh and delicious!

Just love their grouper sandwich. Delicious with a beer or a glass of wine. The perfect setting for a romantic evening. The music is loud but has a great beat. R

The staff here is great! Portions were smaller however it was great for me because I did not throw food away! Everyone made you feel welcome and very down to earth. We loved coming here. Will return.

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
