As usual everything was excellent...except the whipped potatoes, which were tasteless and dry . Service (Jaime)was excellent. I had the rainbow trout and the two others in our group chose the mediteranian chicken which they lovede

I ordered the salmon entree with choice of brown rice. Salmon/rice was very good. Green beans which came with the entree were so hard; probably just barely cooked. I can understand not overcooking the vegetables, but that was over the top not done. Walnut upside down pie was good, but probably too rich for me to order again. Would go with something lighter. Service was very good. Coffee very good.

Guppy's never disappoints us. We enjoyed the swordfish special (which was enhanced by intriguing sauces), exquisite shrimp cocktail appetizer to share and a special flourless cheesecake to celebrate a birthday! The service from the great welcome at the door through the attentive wait person was special!

Guppys has got to be my favorite restaurant ever since I moved down here. I took a couple of people that were here visiting from home to Guppy’s and told them they would not be disappointed and they weren’t. We sat on the porch and it was a lovely night. Two of us got filets, one got swordfish and a tagalong daughter who showed up got a tofu bowl. When they left this morning, they were still talking about Guppy’s being the best meal they have ever had. My mouth is watering already to go back. Service was top-notch. Five stars plus more if there was space.

First time visiting Guppy’s. Food and service were both lovely. I had the swordfish special and it was huge. The fish was moist and tasty. The fried eggplant that accompanied it was crisp and delicious. My husband (a burger fan) thought the burger was exceptional. Lovely evening dining on the patio.

We went for the early bird dinner and really enjoyed the meal. My husband had potato crusted salmon and I had the crab cake both came with a salad,vegetable, starch and bread. Very filling and just the right amount of food. Prices were great - we would go back for sure.

Went several times in 1 week. All wait staff were great, service was prompt and efficient but we were never rushed. Main dishes were very good. The green beans which were the main vegetable, were a little tasteless. Also the bread lacked any real taste. Room for improvement here. The fish chowder was outstanding, best I have had outside Bermuda. Atmosphere is great.

The name of "Guppies on beach" is misleading. it's not on the beach. It's across the street from gulf boulevard. Having said that, I had the fish & chips and it's one of the best I have ever had. The service was very friendly and polite. Guppies has its own parking lot across the street (on the same side of gulf boulevard that the restaurant is on.) It was a pleasant experience.

After dipping on Salt Rock Grill after they rudely required us to surrender a Starbucks beverage (rationale: people sneak in alcohol, but it's not great to be treated like a criminal and if I had wanted to sneak in alcohol, I wouldn't be purchasing from them regardless), where it was also very noisy, we went to Guppy's. They seated me and my date in a private area, and provided great service. The food varied between okay to very good, but between the more receptive staff and the quieter ambiance - I had to shout in Salt Rock - I definitely preferred the experience, and saved some money in the process.

I don’t think you can go wrong ordering anything on the menu! We have been a few times and everything has been delicious.
This visit we had the lobster”cargo” and oysters as appetizers. The “cargo” is a must try and the oysters were delicious. I had the rainbow trout and my husband had coconut shrimp as mains. SO good. If the weather is nice you should definitely sit outside on the patio. I can’t wait to go back on our next trip to Indian Rocks

My wife and I always stop at Guppies when we are in town. I had the Guppy’s Seafood Bowl which was wonderful. My wife had the grouper broiled with green beans. Everything was tasty and well presented. There is a reason we always include Guppy’s in our plans.
