Our friends happened to be passing through the area and invited us here on our first night this year in St. Petes Beach. The service is friendly, we were seated quickly on a Saturday evening and it an easy mile drive down Gulf Blvd from our resort. My wife had crab cakes that were good, not great. I had crab... More

It was flat less than a quarter inch thick and chewy and dry. The shrimp obviously came out of a bag. horseradish is good and as spicy... More

Portions were small. Raw clams were small and not separated from the shell. I asked for celery salt and the server was confused what that even was. He said "we only have regular salt". The slow service was blamed on how busy they were, but even after things calmed down, service was still slow.

Stopped here for dinner last Sunday night. The oysters on the half shell were fresh, crisp in flavor (and mellow on the finish), and well presented. My waiter recommended the scallops in sherry sauce. The scallops themselves were fresh with a full flavor and prepared just right. The sherry sauce was much closer to a butter and bread crumb sauce... More

We come to St. Pete Beach each March and this is almost always our first dinner spot. The Chicago Grilled Oysters are our favorite! Usually that is all we order as we can't get enough. We like to sit outside even though the patio area is nothing special, but coming from the frozen tundra we are just happy to be... More

We are here last year during our visit and loved it. But this year the food was good but the service was beyond poor. Had to ask for my salad after others got theirs, never received a drink refill. Seemed waiter forgot or side of the restaurant.

Went for St Pattys day with a party of six. The service was great. Everything was good. The oysters were great! We had the Ruben, fish and chips, corn beef and cabbage. Everyone was satisfied! Will definitely be back!

Visited after spending the day at the beach. Service was friendly and food was decent. Best part of the meal was the fried shrimp! Also ordered the frozen mango colada and strawberry colada. Drinks were good but just make sure ask them to double the rum or else it will just taste like a good smoothie!
