We have dined here many times over the years while visiting Florida. The food is always excellent. We took a friend for lunch: Total bill for the three of us: ~$80 incl an appetizer. A bit much but the view [overlooking the water] and atmosphere...[we sat above the boardwalk watching the boats come and go and dolphins swimming by] was perfect. Besides the covered outdoor dining they have many tables inside. We splurged and got the Grouper Bites [$13] as an appetizer treat. Delicious but a bit spicy if you're not prepared for it. Meals were the Jumbo Shrimp Dinner [$19]...outstanding, Fish & Chips [$18]...two very large fillets, and the Avocado BLT [$15]...very good and came w/ excellent fries. Robbie M was attentive and helpful with menu selection. Can't wait to visit again! NOTE: Sculley's gives a nice 10% military discount. THANK YOU!More

We stopped at Sculley's because it was close to the excursion we had just finished and we were hungry. We were seated with a view of the boardwalk and water. My companion, not a truly seafood lover, ordered a BBQ Bacon Burger with coleslaw. The...burger met his expectations but the coleslaw lacked flavor ~ just chopped cabbage. I ordered the blacked shrimp taco and it was awesome to first bite to last, loaded with nice size shrimp. My rice and black beans were equally good. Local birds provided entertainment as they swooped in and ate from a plate of fettuccine that previous diners had left. Our server was attentive and friendly. Loved it here. Just wish I had had a print menu to look at rather than an IPhone version ~ I missed being able to choose a lot of other great sounding foods.More

Overpriced for quality of food. Shrimp scampi was not seasoned. Service was excellent as there was only one other table in use inside the restaurant. Cold night so we didn’t want to sit outside. Would not recommend.

We grabbed some apps and drinks at Sculley’s while visiting Johns Pass. I’m so glad we did! Food and drinks were both amazing. Most of all - we sat outside and were completely entertained by the birds 😂. We had so many laughs and didn’t...feel rushed by the staff. It was a great break from our shopping adventures at Johns Pass. Couldn’t recommend this place enough.More

Stopped by for a late lunch and sat outside by the water. Waitress brought drinks over and everything seemed unclean. Ordered the grouper bites which were the highlight of the meal. Tasty and hot. We each ordered burgers which were warm with cold fries and...onion rings. PLEASE serve hot, fresh fries. Burger was bland and bacon was undercooked. Waitress did not return till too late and just wasn't worth the complaining. Bathroom was gross. Would certainly try somewhere else next time.More

Wayne, We're sorry to hear about your poor experience, but it sounds like you're referring to our sister property downstairs, the Hut. Sculley's does not serve onion rings. We would appreciate it if you removed your review or brought it to The Hut's page in...More

Never again! We live in the area and decided to do a little shopping and lunch. We’ve never been to Sculley’s so decided to try that. Menu was very limited which is understandable but WAY over priced. Shrimp tacos had a few pieces of grilled...shrimp and the rest cabbage. Black beans and rice was undercooked and not seasoned at all! My son wanted a fried shrimp basket but all they offered was the dinner for $19 which had a few shrimp, handful of fries and carrots.... very disappointing.More

This is our second time coming to Madeira Beach And second time at your restaurant. Last year the food was absolutely amazing this year was another story I got the mahi-mahi with cilantro lime rice and carrots. The whole meal was horrible I took a...few bites and sent it back the rice was so hard I couldn’t even chew it and carrots were so overcooked they had no flavor. The waiter returned my meal and I ordered the chicken tacos that were just as bad the chucks of pan fried chicken were grossly over cooked and chewy! And my side dish was the hard rice with some black beans on top of it which I did not eat. Our bill was $80 and that was a crime we had a better meal at the pizza place across the street right after dinner at your establishment.More

We came here and ate last October and ended up coming again while down on John's Pass I had shrimp tacos and spouse had a salmon BLT. They were beyond our expectations and probably better than we remember last year!

We had dinner with family for my brother-in-law’s wedding rehearsal dinner at Sculley’s. We ended up downstairs in the bar area with live music and open to John’s Pass. This ended up being my worst restaurant experience. Initially, service was just really slow. Several of...us went directly to the bar to order drinks paying as we went rather than on our main tabs. Finally after a very long wait, we ordered our food. While we waited, a very drunk patron from another group came up behind me where I was sitting on a stool and stuck her hand down my PANTS and dropped ice or water in. She also got up into my face during a pandemic and was touching me further. I felt horribly embarrassed and violated by the event. Our party was very upset with the incident and told management. Rather than kick them out or at least move them to the other side of the restaurant, management left them sitting there for an HOUR afterwards. The drunk lady’s husband even started to get in the face of part of our party. About this time, our food arrived. The coconut shrimp was pathetically small and did not even taste great. It was horribly overpriced as well for a small portion. In the end, after reviewing security footage, the manager did comp our entire bill. I did still end up paying for the drinks purchased at the bar separately though because of the very slow service. This is a terrible establishment on every level.More

We do not have an Early Bird Menu. No daily specials or discounts, but we do offer a rotating special using the fish caught off our boat, The Dagger!

Our waiter was great! Just attentive enough without hovering. Perfect. Food was brought out hot. I would recommend this place.
