Old Florida style restaurant with indoor & outdoor seating near public beach. Had huge fresh Hogfish sandwich while watching some college football. Walked over from the public beach, cold beer was great on a hot day.

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.
