Dockside Dave's - Madeira Beach/St Pete Beach, FL

Whatever location you go to of Dockside Dave's, you'll find locals and tourists alike. Dockside Dave's serves up a nice selection of simple food in a laid back atmosphere, but their specialty is their locally caught black grouper. My family and I have been going to Dockside Dave's on a recommendation, since moving to Florida eight years ago. To be honest, we have never tried anything but the grouper because we go there when we are specifically in a grouper sort of a mood. There are a number of ways to get your grouper fix as they prepare it 5 different ways, and you can get it in a salad, sandwich, entree, or in a pasta dish.

Most recently, we tried our grouper three different ways. We ordered a country fried grouper sandwich, a chargrilled grouper entree, and a batter fried grouper entree. The sandwich comes by itself and sides are extra. However, while the sandwich does come by itself, it is huge. I am talking about a piece of grouper that is easily twice the size of the bun and it is definitely an entree size piece of fish. In fact, I have been at some other places where I have ordered grouper and haven't gotten the amount of fish I get in that one sandwich. Same for the entrees, huge pieces of grouper and with the entree and you get a choice of two sides with your entrees. In all three dishes, the grouper was excellent. It is fresh and that really shows when you take a bite and it has always been my experience at Dockside Dave's that one gets great tasting fish. As long as they keep doing what they are doing, this is one I will continue to come back to enjoy.
