My favorite restaurant within a thirty mile radius. We drive down to the beach (about an hour from home) and hit Guppy’s for lunch—have always had superb food and service.

Guppy's was great as always except I was served the wrong entree. I ordered grouper, but got Mahi. I didn't realize it until I got the check.

We ate dinner outside since the weather was unusually warm for October in Florida. We got there ahead of the crowd that night (8:00). The bacon wrapped shark and the Panko chicken cutlet were both delicious! The garlic mashed potatoes and lemon thyme rice were a nice change from fries or baked potato. Our server,Jessie, was very busy but still was very attentive to our needs.

This was for my birthday dinner. Have to say not impressed this time around. Restroom was not cleaned, nor any TP and the card said serviced at 5pm. Hard to believe 4 rolls were used in 1.5 hrs. Server was preoccupied with his regular customers table and brought out wrong meal for husband. Never offered dessert. Disappointed

Probably not the best experience given we had to take an early reservation. It was quite noisy in the main dining area. The service was quite good. Found the snapper to be rather “soft” and lacking in flavor.

Always an excellent meal. Service always friendly and not rushed. Food exceptional and presentation appealing. Innovative menu with nightly specials. Atmosphere casual but conducive to conversing without a lot bang and crash. Clientele respects other diners and meals always enjoyable. Don’t change anything.

We had a large group and Guppys were able to easily accommodate us. Separate bills was not an issue. Our server was attentive but not annoying and very pleasant. The food was excellent and the craft beer cold and delicious. Definitely a place to take friends and family.

The evening was excellent. Our waiter Bernard was very personable and efficient. Food was, as always, fresh and well prepared, as was my martini. We sat at a sidewalk table, the weather was very nice and only occasional noise from traffic. Another great experience at Guppy's.
