Oh man! The Lobstah Roll and Lord of the Onion Rings were PHENOMENAL! Great price, great staff, and great food all stack up for an amazing experience. Go when in Madeira Beach!

I have to say I was surprised by the quality and quantity of food. We had the beer battered friend pickles and man were they delicious. For lunch we had the bacon cheeseburger which was freaking amazing. It was cooked perfectly and the beef patty...was HUGE. I had the Philly Cheese steak and man it was a knock out of the park delicious. The staff was amazing and very attentive to our needs but not over attentive. We sat in the window watching dolphins and pelicans feeding on fish the whole time we were there. We will definitely be back to enjoy another meal at The Boardwalk Grill!!More

If you are reading this, leave whatever restaurant you're currently at, and drive as fast as you can to the Boardwalk Grill. The food is amazing...by far the best food in a 20 mile radius, and it could very well extend beyond that.

Took a ride a few miles north to John's Pass Village in Madeira Beach. Found a small restaurant on the boardwalk. Had a New England Lobster 🦞 Roll and a Philly Cheese steak sandwich. This really really good food.

The food was awesome, Staff was excellent, friendly and the Service was great. They also recommended 2 other establishments that had a Cuban Sandwich I was looking for that they did not offer. I will definitely go there every time we go to Johns Pass!...Great job guys!More

2 of us split a lobster roll and an order of onion rings at this quaint little cafe overlooking the water. The lobster roll was butter based, instead of mayo, and it was amazing! What it lacked in length, it made up for in girth....:) The surprise star of the show was then hand dipped, beer battered onion rings. They were SO good! For the very first time in my life, I felt as if I channeled my inner Guy Fieri and wanted to tell the world how seriously LEGIT these onion rings were. Huge and crispy, but the onion was sweet and firm... I miss them already.More

Great food, on the boardwalk. Small eat in but worth the wait. Tried the cheese steak, it was mouthwatering.

Omg the BEST steak philly and chicken philly we ever had! The hand cut fries with specially made dang sauce , can’t say enough good things. Small, casual limited seating but worth the wait. Beer and wine sold.

Outside seating allowed for a delicious lunch of blackened Grouper sandwich and hand-cut fries. The server was very friendly and attentive.
