We visited The Boardwalk Grill following a number of recommendations from the locals along the boardwalk. Admittedly, judging from the look of the place, this isn't somewhere which we would usually consider eating. Please don't let that put you off! The food here was some of the best we had all holiday. In a country where everything is served with... More

We were walking the Boardwalk with our two Boston Terriers and asked if we could sit outside. Our server invited us to sit down and immediately ducked back inside. As soon as we sat down, he was back with a bowl of cold water for our pups!! The Blackened Grouper tacos are amazing!

Unbelievable lobster roll!! Oh, my! My only complaint is no side came with the $14.99 roll. I was with a friend who got fries with her meal and we shared. (By the way, their fries are INCREDIBLE!) there is a reason this place has won awards. It's a non-descript, simple store front that we would have walked past had Trip... More

We went here on a Friday evening and got a table outside. The server was quick and very nice. We both got shrimp tacos and they were amazing. I love the seasoned fries and my wife got a really good serving of coleslaw. This seafood is some of if not the best seafood I have ever had. We will be... More

It's a small place with limited seating, but this place is just amazing. The food literally is the best we've had, pretty much anywhere. My boyfriend is addicted to the fried Grouper sandwich, which is, the best we've had in several places between Clearwater Beach & Pass-A-Grille Beach. The French fries are home made & unbelievable. I had a shrimp... More

We read the great reviews but were still surprised when we got there. Thought about going elsewhere but glad we stopped! Food was awesome. Alex, our waitress, rocked! All around some of the best eats we've had all week. Def recommend! 2 thumbs up.

We visited here on a recommendation from a wine shop up the pier. To be honest we would have probably just walked past as from the outside it doesn't look too much just a small cafe sort of thing - don't be deceived! The waitress (not sure of her name - short brown hair young) was really attentive - the... More

Love this little place on the Boardwalk. Great burgers, lobster rolls, and salads. It's a hidden secret. Even if we're not eating here, it's a great place to grab a beer and hang out on the Boardwalk. We've even just picked up food to carry out. The staff is always very friendly.

Folks if your in the Madeira beach area specifically Johns Pass stop in at the board walk grill small place but outstanding food. The lobster roll is the bomb and everything else on the menu. Would give five stars but the wait was a little long but worth it.

The food here is very good! We enjoyed the lobster roll & cheese burger, but the real winner was the homemade fries that they make on the premises! You can sit outside (only 2 booths) or inside, maybe 6-8 tables. This was a good place at Johns pass to eat at! Check it out!

Thank Shelleybeth

Established in 2007 We are a casual waterfront restaurant located on the boardwalk in Johns Pass Village. We started as a small ice cream and coffee shop in 2007. We slowly expanded over the next few years slowly bringing in more and more food items. Now we are a one stop shop on the boardwalk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We pride ourselves in the quality of our food and love to hangout on the boardwalk and talk about fishing. Come on out and try our Authentic New England Lobster Roll, our delicious fish tacos and of course our famous Boardwalk fries, you wont be dissapointed.
