As usual, our table was ready and waiting. Open Table is so much more convenient than some of the restaurant 'call ahead' programs! We had a quite booth, which was nice for our visit with friends. The food was awesome and our waiter, Blake, was very attentive. We always look forward to Guppy's and love that while their menu is amazing, they still have daily creations and specials!

Relatives had recommended Guppy's to us and we were happy that we decided to try it.

We had a 7:00 pm reservation and, although we arrived a few minutes early, it was close to 7:30 before we were actually seated. It was worth the wait!

From the moment she approached our table we knew we were going to like our server; she was friendly and helpful but also efficient and able to leave us alone as we enjoyed our dinner. Most of our party of 4 had seafood but I opted for the Filet Mignon. It was met in your mouth delicious. The others were happy with their seafood selections as well. Prices wer quite reasonable too.

While Guppy's is really a neighborhood restaurant, the arriving customers who did not complain about 1.5 to 2 hour waits let us know that this was a very popular place. It will be on our list for the next time we visit the Gulf Coast.

Very nice spot for fish. I had blackened swordfish tacos that were very nice. My wife is allergic to fish so there were not many options available for her. All in all, if you want seafood, Guppies is a great choice.

Really enjoyed the crab guacamole, the shrimp saute over fried green tomatoes, and the ahi tuna salad. We added a nice bottle of wine and it was a perfect early dinner or late lunch. Made it back to our condo to a nice sunset walk. Service was fine and allowed us to focus on each other's company.

Old friends were in town so we got together for dinner at Guppy's. As always, the food was very good - we had a variety of different meals from seafood to steak. Our server was attentive and not hovering. Prices are moderate to high, as is typical in the beach tourist area. Guppy's is on our list of favorites.

Had a fabulous meal with my family at Guppy's. So many delicious options; we had a hard time deciding. We all had seafood of some sort - it was fresh and deliciously prepared. A good value - we got a ton of food for what we paid.

Having dined here in the past , the food, service and deals are very good. Went with friends that have not been here before, and they were very impressed with all, especially the early dinner menu and happy hour. Our waiter Bernard was very attentive and knowedgeable.

Have been going there for a long time - always really good. The only problem seems to be the open table booking . I can try to make a reservation a few days ahead - and it comes none for 2 1/2 hrs. from the time rquested. I can go on in 1 hr. later and there is room. Something is not right. Perhaps you should check this out.

Great anniversary dinner at Guppys. Had the grouper which was delicious. My husband had the shrimp amd grits which was really good, and the crispy, spicy sausage was his favorite part. He had a shrimp cocktail for his appetizer and they were huge shrimp with tasty sauce. I had the spring rolls which were tasty, just the soy dipping sauce was very salty. Highly recommend the hot apple pie for dessert.

Guppys on the Beach is a great casual beach restaurant. There is a wide range of dishes and prices. Their Asian Tuna Salad is my "crave-worthy" dish. It's pretty and so perfect, with the crunch of the wonton strips, the cucumbers and the cashews, and the sweetness of the tuna. There are lots of other seafood dishes and some meat dishes for those who don't like fish. This place is very popular, so make reservations.

The porch at Guppy's overlooks Indian Rocks Beach (across the street) and is great fun in warm weather. It was very cold the night we were there, but they had heaters on the porch and screens down - so we were very comfortable. Fish is always great there!

My Mahi Mahi was outstanding. Good portion size of the fish with a wonderful coating & cooked to perfection, but the accompanying lemon spinach—though tasting wonderful—was a skimpy portion. The grilled octopus of the octopus appetizer was okay, but drenched in too much sauce. Barrata appetizer was a bit small, & again the flavor of the cheese was overpowered by sauces. Neither was bad, but I’ll Look for other appetizers on my next visit. Ho-hum house salad.

All 4 dinners at our table were fine, and the service was better than adequate. I’ll go back, but I’ll stick to grilled, blackened or baked fish—& anything I order I will ask that the sauces be put on the side. All the appetizers, salads & sides I ate on this & previous visits I can cook as well or better at home, but I can’t begin to prepare or cook fish as well as Guppy’s does.

Food was great. The fresh oysters were sweet and salty, should have ordered a dozen. My NY steak was done perfectly, caramelized outer and cold raw center. My partner had the lobster ravioli, and unlike many places you could actually taste the lobster in the ravioli. The other diners has seafood. My brother has swordfish and my cousins the seafood trio. All enjoyed their meals. The service was great. Attentive but not pushy. Can't wait to go back.
