The food was delicious. We had the homemade gigantic onion rings and the batter fried grouper dinner. Everything was huge and flavorful and worth the price! Will definitely come back and try other things on the menu!

Have to come here every year when we visit. Great service and the best grouper sandwich I've ever had. The onion rings are huge and so are the sandwiches.

Grouper is a great white fish from the Gulf,and if you like things blackened, i highly recommend this blackened. at Dockside Dave's you will get a much bigger piece for the money.
