We had an early dinner at Dockside Dave's had great service and food was very fresh! Onion rings were wonderful and my husband loved his Captains platter! It was recommended by someone at our resort. We were very happy with our meal.

At least one time each vacation we need grouper at Dave's. Grouper is excellent and prepared 7 different ways. Vegetables fresh and not overdone. Soups are are great. Typical beach grill ambiance, wear whatever. Sit inside in summer, outside in fall.

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.
