Madeira Beach Restaurants

Dockside Dave’s

Dockside Dave's Seafood RestaurantSeveral years ago before we moved to Florida, and we were visiting Madeira Beach we asked some locals about their favorite restaurants. We wanted somewhere to go that was not a chain, that had great food and good service. Dockside Dave's was a place several people mentioned so we decided to check it out and we were not disappointed. To this day it is one of our favorite restaurants to go to. Always good food and the beer is always cold!

We always start out our meal with the Amberjack Fish-Spread. It is always good and always fresh. It comes with a side of pepperoncini's, tomatoes, sweet pickles and crackers. We have had fish spread at several restaurants and this is by far our favorite. We also love the Grouper Fritters, which is just like a deep fried crab crake, but instead of crab they use grouper. With a little tartar sauce they are out of this world.

And to save the best for last, we can not go to Dockside with out getting the Grouper Sliders. Three mini sandwiches with either, fried, blackened or grilled grouper and a side of fries. (We always get the fried grouper). This was one of the first dished we tried at Dockside Dave's, and I do believe we have ordered it every time since then. Those are just our favorites, but they have several other delicious dishes that you need to try!

Dockside Dave's is located at 14701 Gulf Blvd Madeira Beach FL.

The Hut Restaurant and Bar at Johns Pass

The Hut Bar and Grill at Madeira Beach is on the boardwalk of Johns Pass. Its a fun place to stop for lunch, dinner or drinks. You can sit inside and listen to live music, or walk out on the pier and sit under and umbrella and have a great water view of Johns Pass. You will always see boats going by, and most of the time you will see dolphin frolicking in the water. Last time we were there, we saw several pods of dolphin swimming by, and we even saw one making a huge jump in the middle of the channel! It was definitely better than Sea World.

The Hut has a casual bar type menu with lots of finger food, sandwiches and wraps. They have an extensive appetizer menu, and seafood specials, tacos wings, salads and soups. 

They have great froze drinks, and an amazing selection of 30 beers on draft. The band is usually rocking it out and there is a lively crown inside. If you want a quieter spot, we enjoy walking out on the dock and sitting by the water under an umbrella. They have fans with misters, and there is usually a pleasant breeze on the water, so its generally pretty pleasant even when its hot outside.

See more about the menu at The Hut Website.

The easiest place to park is probably in the garage near the docks. You can use a debit or credit card and you just pay for whatever time you use when you check out. If the garage is full, you can use the parking in front of the shops but you need to have quarters and pay in advance.

Bubba Gump at Johns Pass

Bubba Gump at Johns PassWe had dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company at Johns Pass in Madeira Beach the other evening. The restaurant is on the upper deck of the boardwalk by the water on the western end near the bridge. It's pretty easy to spot the bright blue awning and the red and blue umbrellas from Gulf Blvd.

You can sit on the deck overlooking the water or sit inside. There is usually a nice breeze on the beaches so we almost always like to sit outside. Be careful picking your seat though, as the "misters" on the fans can be annoying.

Bubba Gump has lots of shrimp dishes as you might expect from the restaurant's name. But they have other fish, beef, and pork selections as well. We had the Mushroom Veggie Burger and it was absolutely delicious! The appetizers were good too.

This is a chain restaurant, but we thought they did a good job of incorporating it into our area. The staff was friendly and efficient although it did take a while for us to get our meal. Overall, we thought the food and service was pretty good for a "tourist" area and we really enjoyed sitting outside in the Gulf Breezes.

If you want to be even closer to the water, you might want to check out the waterside table at The Hut Restaurant an Grill at Johns Pass.

The address for the local Bubba Gump is 185 Boardwalk Pl E, Madeira Beach, FL 33708

Thai-Am # 2 Restaurant

Several years ago when we were just visiting Madeira Beach for vacation, we came across Thai-Am 2. I do not recall what we ordered for our dinner, but I do remember it was really good. A couple of days ago, my family and I were discussing Madeira Beach, and it came across my mind, that we have not been to Thai-AM 2 since we have moved here, so it was off to lunch we went! Not only was the food wonderful, but what a great location! It is directly across the street from Madeira Beach, so you can take a nice stroll before or after your meal on the white sandy beach!

For our meal we had sushi and Miso soup. I ordered your standard California Roll and my Dad ordered the Snow Crab Roll, which is snow crab, avocado and cucumber. Both rolls were very fresh, and the soup was hot and tasty. It had a little more seaweed in it than I am used to, but it was still good.

When we ordered our sushi we noticed they have a special on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can order one piece of sushi for $1.00 or a whole roll for $4.00. (on select sushi's) We will definitely have to check that out, its a good way to try many different sushi's. There were also several Lunch Combo's that looked good, they come with fried rice, spring roll and soup of the day all under $11.00.

If sushi or Thai is not your favorite, they also have a small selection of Japanese dishes. They had a Bento Box that looked interesting, you choose your meat and it comes with miso soup, ginger salad and steamed rice.

If you are in the Madeira Beach area and looking for a great place to eat, check out Thai-Am 2 located at 13037 Gulf Blvd, Madeira Beach. If you would like to check out their full menu visit: http://www.thaiam2.com/. The food was wonderful and so was the service...no complaints here!



McDonalds for Breakfast on the Water

McDonalds at Madeira BeachWe don't go to McDonalds very often, but we do love the views at this particular one. It is located in the Madeira Shopping Center at 650 150th Ave, Madeira Beach, FL 33708. It is just a mile from the beaches via the Tom Stuart Causeway. The view from inside is OK, but what we really like is to go early and sit at the dockside outdoor eating area which is right on the Intracoastal Waterway. You have wonderful views of the Intracoastal and the bridge.

You get to see all kind of boats pulling up. You'll see sailboat owners pull up in a dinghy, kayakers will paddle up, and fishermen, and party boats will dock there too. There is a very long dock adjacent to the picnic area. You will usually see all kinds of boats pulling up to the dock to get a bite to eat or some ice for their trip. We have been there a couple of times when some absolutely stunning Intrepid boats have pulled up on shake-down cruises right after their new construction.

Another neat thing about the location on the weekends, is there is usually an informal classic car gathering in the lot next door.
