Like Kyle said, this is totally old Florida. Hung out here on a Sunday afternoon and it's definitely populated by locals who know what kickass place this is to hang out. I guess it used to be called ABT for Alafia Bait & Tackle. Didn't think about ordering food but I think they only had snacks. Didn't see a kitchen. The beer selection was fine and we hung out on picnic tables overlooking the Alafia, watching people jetskiing and boating by. Definitely stop by here if you're adventurous. It's totally chill and definitely a nice place to hang out.
"Alright! Guinness in a can! What? no glasses?!? You want me to pour Guinness into a small plastic cup? It doesn't work that way!" That was after being ignored by 3 bar staff in the main bar for over 10 minutes with no other customers at the bar. This place should be a regular stop for me. But it won't be.
Dirty, disgusting, thieves work here. I used my CC to buy a pitcher of beer for $8 on March 11th. I forgot my card there but a new one had just come in the mail so I activated it and went on with my day. Lo and behold, 7 weeks later $976.35 of fraudulent charges were put on my card over the course of 5 weeks. Thankfully my bank has refunded the charges. Dixie Dockside you better watch out! We are going to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law!
