Families flock to Madeira Bay Resort 12 months a year to take an extended break from hectic schedules, busy traffic, and stressful workplaces. Our Mediterranian-style resort is located on a peaceful marina within walking distance of the Gulf of Mexico, seemingly endless water adventures, spectacular shopping at John’s Pass, and, of course, the best Madeira Beach restaurants. One of the primary reasons that families choose our particular stretch of the Gulf Coast is how relaxed and casual our businesses are, especially our city’s restaurants. The very best Madeira beach restaurants are nautical-themed shanties, casual waterfront dives, and popular brewpubs. The prices won’t break the bank, the atmosphere is tropical, and the fresh seafood is undeniably delicious!

The 3 Best Madeira Beach Restaurants

To ensure that your well-deserved coastal escape to the white sand shores of Florida’s Gulf Coast is nothing short of flawless, we’ve compiled the most popular Madeira Beach restaurants based on customer feedback and personal experience. And all of these restaurants are within walking distance of our marina-front resort!

  • The Boardwalk Grill – You won’t find a more casual waterfront dining experience in the Tampa area. This ice cream shop turned award-winning restaurant serves the best lobster roll in the county! Their lobster roll is crammed with so much fresh meat that you’ll need a fork. You might want to return to The Boardwalk to try their grouper tacos, hand-cut fries, massive onion rings, shrimp po’ boy, and Philly cheesesteak. This is no-frills, gulf-view dining at its best!
  • madeira beach restaurantsPirate’s Pub -N- Grub – This nautical, pirate-themed shanty in John’s Pass is winning over vacationers left and right. Don’t let their playful, oddly-arranged website fool you – Pirate’s Pub slings some of the yummiest fried fish and burgers in town! Americans love cheeseburgers, which is why Pirate’s Pub started grilling an array of wacky burgers when they first opened their doors. We especially love their crispy fish tacos, complete with a flavorful slaw, special sauce, and all the best toppings. You might not taste better blackened sea scallops for the rest of your life!
  • Mad Beach Fish House – Mad Beach Fish House is a visually-appealing family restaurant located right here at Madeira Bay Resort. Its convenient location is just the tip of the iceberg as their culinary crew serves up some of the tastiest oysters, smoked fish, calamari, and snow crab in the state. Many people escape the summer sun by slipping into the Fish House to sip on their signature cocktails. They also offer private dining for groups of eight or larger – a space called the “Captain’s Table Experience.” All three of these Madeira Beach restaurants have fish tacos, but Mad Beach’s might be the best!
