Florida Seafood & Fun Served up at Sea Sea Riders

When you visit Beso Del Sol Resort in Dunedin, Florida, there’s no shortage of seafood restaurants, but sometimes one just stands out.

If you like something a little different, Sea Sea Riders is just a block from Downtown Dunedin, located inside a restored 1903 waterfront home, complete with veranda dining. The local mom and pop restaurant has been in business for more than 20 years, and the tantalizing menu makes it a worthy stop.

Grouper is probably Dunedin’s signature dish, and Sea Sea Riders does it exceptionally well. Menu items starring the famous fish include: Tempura Grouper Cheeks (appetizer) with sweet & spicy soy glaze and the Florida grouper sandwich (battered, grilled or blackened). You can also order grouper as an entrée (not in sandwich form) with pecan crust, sweet potato mash and bourbon brown butter (yum!)

Sea Sea Riders serves up lunch, dinner and catering. Here are just a few of mouth-watering menu items:


Scallop Ceviche (appetizer)
Black Bean Chili (appetizer)
Mussels in Coconut Curry Cream (appetizer)

Our family enjoyed lunch here recently with wonderful soup and grouper cheeks as starters…Grouper was delicious. Service was excellent and cheerful! We were pleasantly surprised to have live music beginning about 1 pm. We had a good view of the marina and waterfront from our table. Private free parking lot is a great feature in downtown Dunedin, with convenient disabled parking spaces near the front door. Our family will look forward to many return visits! Anita M., TripAdvisor 2017

Soft Shell Crab

Both the hostess that sat us and our server were very cheerful, as well. Live music was being played in the dining room. My wife ordered the Grouper dinner with a side salad and I had the Clam Po Boy sandwich. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We would come here again and recommend this restaurant.

We had an awesome experience here! Food was phenomenal and service was great! Avocado fries and crispy light batter on my chicken sooo good! Clam po boy was overloaded with crispy clam strips. Almost all menu items are made fresh daily on premises even the dip/dressing sauces! -mpass324, TripAdvisor 2017

Of course burgers, salads, chicken and steak are also on the menu if seafood isn’t your thing. Save room for dessert, which includes key lime pie, flourless chocolate torte and Yoland’s carrot cake.

Be sure to stop by Sea Sea Riders on your next visit to Beso Del Sol Resort.
