Craving fried food? This is the place!! Dockside Dave’s is a small restaurant, literally a hole in the wall, but the food they serve… mmm it’s delicious! The service is amazing and the staff are very helpful.

Try the classic fish & chips or fried calamari. They have a limited beer selection but the food compensates for it. The restaurant is known for their slightly blackened grouper sandwich, which tastes like heaven! Don’t forget to order the seafood bisque made with red wine!!
