“Yum!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Read the reviews on trip advisor, so had to check it out. I love a good fish sandwich and the grouper sandwich was fantastic! I got it country fried style - very large and flaky, much larger than the bun! I ordered a salad to accompany and it was almost as good as the sandwich. Homemade croutons, cucumber, cauliflower and what tasted like homegrown tomatoes. Dave's isn't very big inside, but I opted to eat outside in the breeze. Come early, or there's probably a wait.

“Best Grouper sandwich”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We spent our vacation in June in Madeira Beach. Absolutely the best grouper sandwich I've ever had. Been searching since we were there and nothing comes close. Can't wait to go back!

“Good food but lacking service”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Good food but service is SLOW. Had to ask for soups and salad to come out before main course. Everything ended coming out at once. Personal pet peeve. Kinda got a SoCal vibe from the wait staff...kind but clueless.

“Not Impressed”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Went because of the good right ups re this restaurant. We all found the food terrible but none ordered the famed onion rings and grouper sandwich. We found the place dingy like a corner greasy spoon and our waitress was not very friendly. We fare going back this December and will avoid this place and go next door. The only way I would go back is to try the grouper and onion rings. Otherwise stay away!

“Waited way too long”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Went around noon on a Monday. Waited at least 45 minutes for our food after ordering and waiting first for any acknowledgement of our presence and then waiter service. We had never been to the area and were tired and hungry. This was the closest place to our hotel. It looked super cute, and we were so excited to try it. Once the food did come, they forgot our fries. The food was decent, but did not make up for the horrid service and long wait. Shouldn't matter if it was lunch time. Won't be going back next time we visit, even though it would the most convenient place for us. There are too many other restaurants that offer better service and food in the area.
