We were late for our reservation but called to see if they would still be able to seat us. They were SO nice about it. Service was stellar, food was very good. I would say my scallops were stellar but the ahi was so so. We love this place though. Very friendly very good bery consistent. Will be back next month!

Food was great and the hostess was very accommodating with our seating. The server was not up to par. I work at a local hotel and was looking to get a personal insight of what I send my guests to. The service from our server was not anywhere comparable to what I’ve received in the past. Did not mention any drinks, food specials, or any recommendations throughout the whole meal. I was very disappointed for that aspect of the dinning experience. I hyped the restaurant up to my boyfriend and he was not impressed with the experience for the price being paid. I’ve dined their before and our server was amazing. It will not keep me from dining at Guppys again because the food was outstanding as always.

The food and ambience here are very good, as is the service. It’s a good value. Traffic noise is annoying on the front patio, but you still are outside in FL and probably have a breeze. The fish tacos are awesome, the coconut shrimp is good and a generous portion. The mussels are recommended. My husband likes the gumbo when it’s available.

Gupta continues to experiment with its food choices. Interesting Asian like shrimp dish. Maybe a kettle spicier? Good solid food and value. Suggestion that you go back to serving bread and oil as soon as take the orders rather than waiting for the salads as it’s too much food on the table.

Have eaten at Guppy's several times. Food is well prepared, presented and of good portions. Service is fast with main course coming out before the salad can be finished. I believe the goal is to turnover tables every hour. It gets a little noise in the front room when the tables are being cleaned. Felt a bit rushed when server asked how we were doing. I have had the sword fish several times. It is delicious. Good selection and pricing.

It was a very stormy evening and our Uber ride was a disaster and made us quite late for our reservation. Despite there being a lot of people waiting they held our table and we were seated immediately.
Not the morning st glamorous of restaurants- in fact a bit boring aesthetically.
Our server was efficient and did what needed to be done but had minimal personality.
The grilled octopus was fine - have had much better in Tarpon.
The scallops were delicious (despite being wary of the Kona dusting). The panko grouper was also excellent.
Caesar salad was boring but appreciated the flourless chocolate cake - small piece but very rich and first rate.
We would normally have lingered at the bar for a brandy but did not lend itself to that.
Overall was very rushed...we were in, four courses and out in an hour. Not quite the relaxed Sunday evening dinner we had hoped for.
I understand this is an institution in the area but sometimes that means they miss the details that make it a true experience.

Everyone was very nice and service was good. I just expected more since this place was compared to Salt Rock Grill. The food was average at best. The choices were fairly routine with no unusual or fun foods. I will admit that the oysters were good, but a bit earthy.

Nothing really bad about this place, it just wasn't outstanding. Food was rather bland. Probably ok for tourists not accustomed to a seafood restaurant . This has a good variety for that.

The waitress did mess up and brought me a Caesar salad instead of the one I wanted with 2 different dressings on the side. Everyone else was eating n I was still waiting for my salad. When she finally brought my salad I only got one salad dressing that i had ordered. I waited for her to come back but decided to start to eat my salad with the one salad dressing. It was good. By the time she came back our food was brought to table so I never finished my salad nor got the other salad dressing I ordered. But other than that-everything else turned out good.

Dined 2X during our weeklong stay in NRBeach! The grouper picatta was sooooo delicious, we had to return to order it again! We also had the lobster escargot & fried oyster appetizer-both were great! Had the upside down apple pie for dessert-was definitely homemade! Service was great, very accommodating on the reservation!
Will return again, as soon as we hit town!

Guppy's was recommended to me by a co-worker as a great seafood restaurant with a laid back environment. There could not have been a better description!
Our reserved table was ready when we arrived a few minutes early, and our waiter was very attentive right from the start. When we told him we were in no rush because we were spending time catching up with old friends, he slowed the pace and didn't rush us, or our food.
When we did eat, EVERYTHING we had, appetizers, bread basket, salad and entrees were great!
No one had anything bad to say about any of the food (or drinks!) And the portions were very good too.
Although the indoor dining area we ate in was a little noisy, it was not inconvenient for us.
If you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner, this is not the place. But if you want GREAT seafood at a good price (not cheap, but not overpriced) in a comfortable casual atmosphere, Guppy's is THE place!
