“AWESOME GROUPER”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

My bf is a grouper fanatic so when we asked where to go for GOOD grouper, we were told Dockside Daves. We were a little leary when we got there. It's a small place that didn't look exceptionally appealing however, the food made up for it. We actually visited twice while we were in Madeira Beach over the weekend. WE got the country fried grouper sandwich, fries, and he got coleslaw. Huge piece of grouper on the sandwich and fries were good. HE said the coleslaw was some of the best he has had. We didn't get the onion rings but saw numerous plates going by us. They are huge and looked really good. The second day we went back and tried the blackened grouper sandwich. We liked it better than fried. This place doesn't look like much but the food is worth going for.

“Speedy service, excellent meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Had a blackened grouper, wife had chicken. Very efficient waitress, food came in record time. Tasted great. Bit noisy on the main road, but plenty to look at if you like cars and motorbikes. Much better than St. John's Pass meals.

“Enjoyed the Fish and Chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

On April 4, 2013 we went for lunch with some friends at Dockside Dave's. The place is cramped and the tables are small but the place was full of customers. Plus it was a very rainy day. I ordered the daily special which was cod fish and chips. The fish was average but the chips were very good as they were a waffle chip. My friend ordered the hot roast dinner which he seemed to enjoy. The other two enjoyed their lunch which was a hot dog. If I am in the area I would go back to this restaurant. Service was very good.
