This is our go-to place for lunch or early dinner following the Florida Orchestra Concerts. Can't fault anything, the food, service and ambiance are top notch. The icing on the cake is the free valet parking which takes a worry away when wanting to eat on the bay front. Definitely recommend this restaurant as a great value.

Nice atmosphere and good food and value.

Service was poor. Waited over 15 minutes for first course when finally served salad and soup had no napkins or silverware. I got up and took them off another table. When our dinner was served quickly after receiving the first course (not timed very well) my order had the wrong starch and was taken back and returned with the correct starch. Salmon was only partly cooked through was semi raw in the thickest portion so I took it home to cook.

Wait staff very poor. Had her hair up but was hanging down all over. Should have better wait staff for this caliber of restaurant.
Also wanted to order brunch at 2:30. Was told by waitress that it ended at 2 even though the menu card on the table stated brunch was available until 3.
Need to update info on the table or retrain wait staff!

400 Beach Seafood is a classic fine restaurant, with food of European quality. We totally enjoyed every minute there

Visiting a Florida city where the restaurant staff wears masks was a comfort. Our server was knowledgeable and very helpful. We had the short ribs, like butter and the sauteed spinach was excellent as well. The grouper oscar was very good. Highly recommend this restaurant

We were a party of four. The steak was dry. The lobster roll had meat from the claws, none from the tail. Not tasty at all. Baked oysters and mussels were good. Service was good.

My husband ordered the filet mignon medium, it was VERY charred and was overdone. It was sent back and the one he received was medium rare to rare. It was less charred and had better flavor.

I ordered the seafood sampler and it was pretty good.

Delicious food, polite and efficient server! Very much enjoyed the early bird special! It was just enough food without overeating. The food was presented attractively. The citrus rice the best! Great place to visit.

Probably the worst service we’ve had at a restaurant this past year. We waited 15 minutes at our table before someone showed up at the table. After we drove an hour to get the buffet they advertised on their website and social media, we were told they didn’t have a buffet and only had 5 breakfast items on their menu! Five! We should have taken the hint when we saw only half their tables full on a late Sunday morning.

I got a Bloody Mary that was fairly tasty and ordered another. The second one had almost 2 inches of water sitting on top of the drink! The bar apparently made a drinks ahead of time and the waiter simply grabbed one after it had sat with the ice melting.

The food.... the diced potatoes were cold with a few flakes of overdone onion and peppers mixed in the concoction. The $17 crab Benedict was really pathetic. Toasted dry English muffin with a smear of crab mix/dip, over-done eggs (come on people! You have to have a runny egg yolk!), and a teaspoon of hollandaise sauce on each half. The fresh fruit chunks were fantastic... best part of the meal!

We typically spend a month or two in Florida every winter and have dined at 400 Beach several times. NEVER AGAIN! There are too many wonderful places who serve delicious food with great waiters to waste our dollars on 400 Beach again.

Food was great although the kitchen clearly lost its way between appetizer and entree. Server was very apologetic and said the manager would come and see us....but we never saw him. A small customer service issue I know but the food made up for it. In spite of this I would visit again.

well they of all the restaurants around here ( Salt Rock , Island Way, Leverocks and so on ) have all keep the same early Bird prices but not 400, just had to raise the price because of spring break i assume so adios to Salt Rock. Have eat here many many times all yr but there are enough other equals that don't put it to you at spring break !!

Food and cocktails were terrible. Got the chilled seafood tower and the crab was overcooked and looked like from the grocery store. Drinks were too sweet and hardly any liquor.

We recently moved to St Petersburg and have enjoyed trying new restaurants along Beach Dr. Last week we had a nice dinner at 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House and had a great experience. I chose the Salman entree and my husband went with the Seafood Sampler and both were excellent choices. We loved the location and can't wait to visit again.

Im super disappointed because my mom and I attended last night for my birthday dinner. I go to this restaurant twice a month and its my favorite. Last night I ordered the filet and my mom ordered the scallops. Our food came & unfortunately mine had a long hair in it. So i of course sent it back . But by the time mine came back out my mom was already finished eating. ( she had to eat so hers didnt get cold). So it completely ruined the purpose of having birthday dinner together.. and not to mention the manager didn’t even come to apologize or offer dessert or anything. (And to add, the hair was long and blonde. Neither me or my mom have blonde hair)

My boyfriend and I had the mahi which was very fresh and delicious but we both commented that the veggies and the rice were pretty bland. But other than that we really enjoyed our meal and we will definitely be back to enjoy the front patio! Jared was an excellent server as well!

Birthday- listed 70th birthday as occasion on our table reservation. Arrived at restaurant and hostess told me to tell server it was birthday. Server was one who took our name to be seated. Margaret, server had little personality. Seldom smiled. Seemed over worked. Most outside tables were full. My reservation said we’d be inside, but were outside tables. Saturday was nice afternoon, so outside was ok. I don’t know why birthday is listed as special occasion. We’d referred to my husbands birthday several times. Server did bring husbands dessert with candle on it.
I’m not sure I’ll return any time soon. For a restaurant of this caliber, mediocre service is not acceptable.

It was my birthday, put it on the reservation, told them when I arrived and it was still not even acknowledged. A friend called in advance to have a bottle of wine served to us as a surprise and it was not done. When he called to ask why they said I didnt arrive or check in. Handled poorly

Had a lovely dinner with our two very good friends. Everyone enjoyed a perfect dish. We were very much impressed with the quality of the seafood and delicious seasonings that were used. This was our second visit to 400 Beach Seafood and Tap House and we will definitely be back when we are in the area.

We’re promptly seated at a comfortable table and drink orders taken. It was pretty busy so it took a little longer to get out bottle of wine but not too bad. Food was delicious and not too pricy. We had a very nice evening out.
