Visited again after having a great meal on our last vacation in 2017. Not let down a bit. Calamari was perfect, tender and plentiful, cocktail sauce one of the best. Blackened grouper and country fried grouper dinner portions were fantastic. Prices are very reasonable compared...More

Had a great dinner after Sunset heated by the outdoor lamps. All food without standing in the service was top-notch. Someone called this a hole in the wall but that's not a fair review. Best meal we had all week in the area.

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.
