We've gone here for lunch/snacks and drinks a few times. Has a nice, open feel on the water. The bartender always provides attentive and friendly service. Love the truffle fries, hard to go wrong with a truffle fry I guess. Cosmos are huge...It's a chill place where you can enjoy a few drinks and some fine snacks really...nothing awful or... More

Miller's has a great location overlooking the water. The service is good, but the food is below average and expensive even by Boca Grande standards. $42 for the grouper special. Give me a break. Save yourself the trip and get a real meal at the Temp or South Beach.

I had hoped to be an appetizing lunch with my wife today. Ended up with mediocre service and horrible food, don't waste your time or money. The calamari was cold, and disgusting in both taste and texture. I am of the opinion that they serve bottom end frozen crap purchased from a discount food wholesaler. Although the marina atmosphere is... More

Bocce Grande Marina is a great stop on Gasparella Island . It use to be called Miller's Dockside. It has great docking if you come by boat, very helpful dock attendants to assist you tying up, great food and golf carts you can rent to tour the rest of Gasparella Island like the locals. Don't miss the food!!!

We were seated on the lower deck and nobody came to serve drinks. We left. Nobody bothered to say anything to us.

Gasparilla Shrimp N Grits and Ahi Tuna Nacho plate with wontons ....2 of the best meals that we had on our Gulf vacation. Miller's Dockside was recommended to us and it was amazing. We arrived for the lunch menu and were seated outside at the water. Perfect location, perfect food, and darling waitstaff.

Very relaxing, good food, nice view of the harbor fun to watch the fishing boats come and go. Boca Grande is known for its fishing. Great place to hire a guide for back bay fishing or Tarpon fishing. We are local about 45 min. away, love to come here for lunch once a month.

A casual, go-to spot overlooking the Marina with some pretty magnificent boats/yachts. Outdoor patio has screening that is dropped when it's chilly. The bar and a few tables are inside where it's cozy. Service is efficient and always friendly - even when it's jammed and it is definitely jammed in season - no reservations. The food is really good with... More

This is a great spot on the back bay. Always great fish choices as well as a wide variety of other choices. . Fun to walk around the docks and look at all the boats. If you're new to the island, just ask anyone in town how to get there. it's a bit of a walk from downtown but definitely... More
