Terrible service. Waiter was so scattered and it took 20 minutes to order and food arrived 40 minutes after we sat down. And it wasn’t that crowded. Tacos were good but the daily $14.95 Bronzini special (4 oz of fish if that) was skimpy. We won’t be back.

It was great! One of my favorite places to visit. Food was great, oysters were a bit sandy still & were forgotten about but that’s ok! The taste of everything else was lovely! Always return to Guppy’s when I’m in town visiting!

This is my second time dining here and I can’t even explain how good the food was. It was amazing. Even my husband who is very picking loved the Mediterranean chicken to the point that he asked for a second helping of rice. I will keep coming back and their staff is wonderful

It was slightly raining which made the parking area with only valet parking really messy which transferred into my car requiring a cleanup today. Can no longer handicap park and have to go around to sidewalk to get in and out. Food was good. Waitress was friendly.

So glad we stopped in at Guppy’s! The food was absolutely outstanding. Each and every component was exquisite. The shrimp and grits was delicious!!! My friend’s tuna and octopus were perfectly prepared. The banana cheesecake is still in my dreams. 😉😃 We will definitely be returning. Chef Scott is brilliant! Many thanks to him and his team!

Always love Guppy’s. They do a wonderful job.
Would like to see more grouper options other than just piccata. Also like more local drafts that are not IPAs. No lager, Pilsner, Hefeweizen or Kolsch.

Fantastic food! Make sure you make a reservation, and if you’re wanting to sit outside keep in mind the road traffic can be kind of loud. The peach sangria is fantastic, and the bread is a nice way to start off the meal. Will definitely be returning

Excellent service and great food. Our favorite place! The chef’s appetizer- oysters with bacon and Asiago sauce were outstanding! The red sangria is my go to drink - live the hint of cinnamon. Finished the meal with the key lime pie- so good.

The worst service and meal I’ve had since coming here when they opened in 1992. Before I wrote this review I had emailed the GM to present the many problems with my service , food and overall experience . I never heard back from anyone, so let’s add that to my experience.
They were busy at 2:30 but had enough staff. The servers had the most dismal outlook on waiting on my dining companion and I.
The never brought my extra lemon or anchovies as asked only upon prompting them; but then the brought one and not the other. Totally forgot my beer I ordered. Never asked if we needed anything or how the food was.
The grouper sandwich was the size of a McDonalds fish filet. Trust me - in the past this was my go- to-place for a great big grouper sandwich.
I’m very disappointed on the overall experience & left the restaurant hungry.
I hope they have a round- table meeting with their staff .

The food and wait staff were great, and the outdoor tables were nicely spaced. But we made a 1:00pm reservation through OpenTable. When we arrived, the 'greeters' could not find our reservation and were very rude, even though there were plenty of tables available. They said that we didn't have a reservation; we may have made a reservation for another date; Open Table often changes reservation dates without telling you. Their unnecessary rudeness, and incompetent loss of our CORRECT reservation was really disturbing for a restaurant we've dined in many times for many years.

I made the reservation when Guppy's sent me an email with a reservation link which accessed OpenTable. Get your act together Guppy's!

Lunch at an outdoor table at Guppy's is what Florida is all about. Great food, pleasant wait staff, and outdoor seating that's quiet and attractive. For us three, it was the first post-COVID meal together, a major treat. Nice to discover that Guppy's maintained its quality all that time.
