Description: Established in 2010. Obsession Fishing Charters was started in 1986 out of Port Canaveral Florida, from what is now known as Sunrise Fish, Dive, Surf. The business expanded in 1992 to include a head boat fishing vessel, Ocean Obsession II. In 1994, Dolphins Leap was purchased and renamed Sunrise Marina. Constant improvements to Sunrise have been made since its purchase. Including 140 mph wind proof storage buildings installed in 2005, new floating docks and a 24,000 lb forklift to launch boats. After the acquisition of Sunrise Marina, in 1997 Grills Seafood Deck and Tiki Bar was built on the waters edge of the marina. The restaurant was an immediate success and has continued to be improved and expanded. In the summer of 2010, we open our Grills Riverside in Melbourne, Florida. The location features a beautiful waterfront view, convenient boat and sea plane access. Both restaurants feature the same awesome menu, local musicians and artwork.

“Great Experience on the Patio!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Bill with a good tip for 8 pushed $160, but the atmosphere, service, and food was great! I would definitely recommend this place. Btw, it was very clean! The bathrooms were the best I have experienced on the entire trip!

“March 20, 2013”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We loved the food at the Grills at Port Canaveral, so we wanted to try this place out too. And were definitely NOT disappointed! They grill not fry the food. I had a salad with grilled tuna with a cup of their award winning clam chowder (and it is the best!). The salad comes with a piece of bread, cheddar bread. very good. My husband ordered the combo kabob meal again, which he had at the other Grills and loved so much he said if it were his last meal, before he died, he'd be OK with that. His choice of the kabob's were the beef tips, cooked to his order, the shark, as that was in season, and the shrimp. His order also came with the cheddar bread, and his sides were the Tahiti taters (very good) and the pasta. The restaurant was designed very nice and wonderful landscape. The type of place this vacationer wants in a Florida restaurant, dining inside or out. We sat outside at the bar. Had some pesky bugs now and then. Prices okay. Menu with many options. The facility was clean, great location on the river, great views, friendly staff, and wonderful food. We WILL return and this will be on our list.

“Best scallops I've ever eaten!!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

A group of 11 stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner a few days ago, and we ordered bacon-wrapped scallops for an appetizer. They were the best we had ever tasted! Several of our party changed their entree order to scallops! All the food was excellent! My husband had the yellow fin tuna and it was perfect! I had a reuben sandwich, which was great! Everyone was VERY happy with their food, and our group included some very finicky eaters! We will definitely return.

“Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Deck seating on the river in Melbourne, FL at Grills was an interesting experience! At first our waitresses seem a bit terse, but became more friendly as dinner progressed. Our guest was disappointed with the steamed clams. Not what we call "little necks" in MA. Menu a bit confusing as you had a choice of the fishes of the evening prepared a few different ways...wraps, salad,dinner plate! I ordered File fish (one of the choices) as a dinner plate. It was marinated and grilled. Good but a bit salty for my taste. Grills came highly recommend, but I was a bit disappointed.

“Nice waterfront location”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is a nice casual place on the river front near Melbourne with average food and drinks but the location and atmosphere is wonderful. Plenty of outside tables, a dock for boats and live music several days each week. Our server was attentive and our meal was served as ordered. The menu is varied and has a good selections that would make most folks happy. You won't be disappointed if your looking for a nice place on the water.
