Had the salmon and it was delicious! My friend loved the seafood Mac and cheese. It was crowded so had to wait about 15 minutes after our reservation time, but it was worth the wait and it’s always nice to watch their fish tank.
Excellent dessert - chocolate torte
Definitely plan to return

Our server and the hostess were both so helpful and attentive. We had requested a quiet table and they actually offered to turn the music off for us, in the section we were sitting in.
I can’t comment on the value because I never saw the bill.

Guppys is consistent good food and great service no matter what the time of year. In season jammed most every night so reservations are a must. Great draft beer selection. Know for its fresh grouper,which is tastily prepared. Can't go wrong with an evening at Guppys.

Guppy's is our "go to" restaurant for special occasions, or when we want to treat guests to a really good restaurant that doesn't require you to take out a mortgage! We find the prices very reasonable given the
quality of food and service. We tell all our friends about Guppy's because we know they won't be disappointed!

We had a great first experience. The only thing I’d say is that he inside is so loud. At times we struggled to communicate with each other without shouting. But that seems to be most restaurants anymore. We’ll sit outside next time but will definitely be back.

Our dinners took an exceptionally long time which the server blamed the kitchen for.. not sure if this was the case or he forgot to put in the order. As people familiar with the restaurant business for almost 30 years, we know this happens but we also know the manager should have come to apologize. We were the last ones seated outside finishing our dinner at 10pm and our reservation was at 8. Disappointed that our server didn’t send over management although he himself was apologetic I think more should have been done.

We loved everything about Guppy’s. From the peach sangria which was so so good, through the lobster ravioli and mahi mahi, to the outstanding key lime pie, everything was well-prepared and tasted perfect. Add to that our excellent server, and we had a perfect dinner! I highly recommend Guppy’s!

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.
