This is another restaurant we had passed by many times during our previous visits to Madeira Beach. We made up our minds to at least try it on this visit, especially because the restaurant belongs to Dining for Miles and even if we had a bad meal at least we could add some miles to our Northwest frequent flier miles. We shouldn't have worried about a bad meal, the food ended up being so good we made a return visit during our stay.

This is our favorite restaurant in Madeira Beach for any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner. With this being the case, we headed here our first morning in town. Not only is the Friendly Fisherman known for its wide variety of breakfast items, including daily specials that are listed on a board as you enter the restaurant, but also for Captain Hubbard's Famous Seafood Omelette. This omelette is made with three eggs, grouper, scallops, shrimp and crab and having left more than full on our previous visit, we knew to order just one and split it. With a side order of grits and biscuits, I had plenty to eat without leaving so stuffed I couldn't eat again until nightfall. Our waitress, who had only been wo...Read More

We had passed by this restaurant many times during our visits to Madeira Beach since it sits on the corner of Gulf Boulevard and Tom Stuart Causeway (the non- toll road to St. Petersburg) but we had never stopped. Having won an auction for a gift certificate to the Oceanside Grille Daiquiri Deck, my wife and I decided to eat lunch there one day. The Oceanside Grille and Daiquiri Deck is not next to the ocean but is across the street and although there is an outdoor deck it does not overlook the water but the parking lot in front of the restaurant. The restaurant is basically a sports bar that really comes alive at night, judging from the cars in the parking lot and the crowd on the deck. There were...Read More

The Kingfish Restaurant is a new addition to the restaurant scene since our last visit to Madeira Beach but it is no newcomer to serving good food along the Gulf Beaches. We had noticed the new restaurant on our first morning in town as we headed for our breakfast at the Friendly Fisherman Restaurant at John's Pass. But it was not until later in the week and after getting a recommendation from a woman at the Madeira Beach visitors center that we decided to try it. The restaurant, which has the slogan, "7 Days without seafood makes one weak," opens daily at 4 p.m. After being seated, our waiter, Tony, who turned out to be from Lebanon, Tennessee, and who had moved to Madeira Beach eight years ago, ...Read More
