Met up with a friend, who recommended we go there. Good food, quick service and energetic vibe. Not cheap, but reasonable.

Grouper was sold above market price and was NOT fresh. 6th fried Grouper sandwich I’ve had in Florida and the most expensive one. The food was barely warm and our crab cake appetizer came out at the same time as our food. The fried grouper...was saturated with grease. The bun was a normal butter bun not brioche and was soaked in the grease from the fish. Our waitress disappeared for fifteen minutes while we waited for our bill and completely skipped our table when checking food/drinks. $3 margaritas are watered down iced up nonsense. One appetizer, two sandwiches, and $6 worth of margaritas equalled a bill of almost $100. Worst tourist trap I have been to. DO NOT GO!More

Perfect spot if you’re looking for a drink/bite to eat on the water. Gulfport is an awesome little area, this place is right next to the pier to walk out on after you eat! If visiting Gulfport highly recommend coming here, free parking and walking...around. Beers and drinks very reasonable portions and not expensive.More

Love the warm greetings by staff. We had been working on my move to this very eclectic town. We were tired & hungry. Place was very busy but we managed to snag a table closer to actual bar side of restaurant but very close to...wide open views of Boca Ciega Bay. Live music and Adam was our great waiter. We ordered wings to start and they were delivered quickly & were delicious. The grouper bites are perfectly prepared too. We had draft beers. They had an impressive offering. Our meals were also great and the servings were generous. 1 person had a salad, one had a shaved steak sandwich loaded on a pretzel bun. I had their special that day a gigantic Philly cheese steak type of sandwich on a hoagie roll. 2 of us had onion rings. Coleslaw was included 2. We enjoyed the views & the friendly staff and the patrons here. All seemed very happy. I am so looking forward to living in this lively, friendly and charming coastal town.More

When we first arrived it was fairly early. They estimated our wait time between 20-45 minutes. That’s wasn’t a problem for our group. However, over an our and a half later, the hostess stated that she had given our table away and that it was...her first night. I’m not entirely sure how this justified anything with our situation- but we were finally given a table with much attitude and resignation. The food was adequate, the atmosphere was fun. But overall, the fact is that they were just average. Nothing was fantastic about the food, beer, service. It was all average.More

Love this little town on the Gulfport Blvd Beach. This restaurant has outdoor seating, and we sat outside on the walkway which was perfect to lookout at the water or all the dog walkers and people walking around in town. The restaurant itself is very...laid back, so dress casual and sit back have a drink and people watch. 4 of us ordered, and they made a mistake on my meal - as they gave it to someone else by accident, which was the fried grouper. They rushed to cook another one, and when it came out, it was over fried, we explained to the waitress our situation-and the management was excellent. We had the grouper nuggets and crab cakes for appetizers, very tasty, and our meals were very good as well. Their special of fish tacos were excellent, hopefully they add this to the menu! We would go again, but would like to try out some of the other restaurants in Gulfport.More

Beautiful Saturday and we got on the wait list which they said was an hour long. They did not tell us that the call would come from their personal cell phones! We were waiting and waiting for a call from the restaurant. Finally, we went...back and they told us they had been calling. So we had to get back on the wait list again. We finally get a great table outside in the shade and order. Crabcake appetizer is GREAT - 2 good sized crab cakes served in about 15 minutes. Then we had to wait for over 35 minutes for our entrees. During this time I went to the women's rest room. They have 2 women's rest rooms right next to each other. The door opens and a man walks out. I'm thinking he saw the other womens room and figured this one had to be the men's. Anyway, he had peed ALL over the seat so I had to do a major clean up job first. So gross. I think that their needs to be BIG signs that say WOMEN's bathroom. Anyway. I had ordered the Roast Beef on Weck and it was big and delicious and the fries were perfect. Husband got the salmon salad and it was massive with a big piece of delicious salmon on a big bed of spinach with pecans and tomatoes. Really a masterpiece. This restaurant gets the food exactly right but you may wait quite a bit for it. I'd say try to go on off hours like the middle of the afternoon. I can't wait to go here again!!More

I was a daily regular at Maddy's from January 2002 until September 2010 - when I sadly left Florida to move back north to Jersey. I've been to visit several times since and I have to say- nothing has changed. Joe and Maddy have kept...the place as fantastic as it always was. The food is outstanding- the employees are great, service can't be beat and I'm still proud that this was "my bar" throughout my 20's- I literally turned 21 there and I'm 40 now and it's still my absolute favorite place on earth. There's no seafood better than what you can get here and the drinks are always tasty and huge got the price. If I had to make a "last request" meal, it would absolutely be from omaddys.More

Still love the views towards the Pier and the Bay, love the atmosphere, the drinks and Menu and sitting outside watching the Gulfport world go by.

Enjoyed one of the three best pasta seafood dishes in my life! One was a squid ink seafood pasta in New York City, the other was fettuccine shrimp dish in Florence, and now a shrimp, mussels and crawfish pasta with Vodka sauce by Chef Tex...at O’Maddy’s! Such perfection in the flavors! It wasn’t too acidic nor dry and all of the seafood was amazing, each one moist, not overcooked, tender and the sauce was skillfully seasoned and balanced. The only crazy thing was the price! It could have easily been $32,00 , BUT RATHER WAS ONLY $16.99 for a very healthy portion chuck full of seafood! I’m so glad I drove a little further to dine on this amazing dish and found out Tex is truly home in the kitchen! Keep it up! The food and selection is always great as is the service. This just took it up another notch.More

We arrived at 400pm , my daughter and granddaughter and myself .the table said reserved on the corner for 500 . At 415 someone came over and asked us to move , We said no we would be finished by five. Two waiters came over...and to take our order, then two other ladies came over and said would we mind moving because the table is reserved I said no will be through. We got our food and then the manager came over and asked us if we would move to another table we said no we would be through. Then another lady came over and asked if we were finished we said no we’re trying to then the manager came over Jennifer? Ask us to leave we said we will when we’re finished she goes I’m going to call the cops. So my granddaughter finished her beer my daughter went up to the bar and said who is your boss and she said I’m the boss my daughter said no who is your boss she goes you’re going to jail, my daughter said for what for paying our bill and for complaining about The customer service that we got. It is a shame because we spent $75 there for drinks and food and was harassed by several employees, we will not be coming back as we do live in Gulfport and it was a nice little place to visit but no more thank youMore

OMG I ordered take out from o'maddys. Don't normally eat their food because it's "eh". But since I was next door watching the football game, I decided they were right next door. So, against my better judgement I did anyway. I ordered a fried Chicken...sandwich with fries. The chicken was so dry I couldn't bite into it. There may have been 2-3 bites that I was able to bite off and swallow. The fries were good, I'll give them that. Then I happened to look at my check and they charged me for MAYONNAISE! Are you kidding me? You charge for condiments? Then I look further down and saw another charge for "Dressing". What dressing??? So in total my bill was $17.00 and change, no drink with a $3.00 tip. My advice do yourself a favor, walk a few extra yards to neptunes. Much better food and they don't nickel and dime you. Thanks omaddys for another terrible meal.More

We have been lucky by getting there early and on weekdays. Even then it is tricky. We may need to call for a Lyft or Uber when we visit next year.
