We had a great meal here. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We had a table outside. It was a little cool out but they had heaters on the outside patio that were perfect and kept us super comfortable. Food options were great mix of seafood, meat, pasta and veg dishes. We shared several entrees between our group and had two fabulous desserts too! Would definitely recommend and would definitely return next time we're in the area.
We keep coming back to Guppys every time we are in the area. This is the 12th year we have dined here and we have always been impressed by the freshness and quality of the food. Our server Courtney was friendly, knowledgable and efficient. The cocktails were delicious and the wine prices are very fair. The seared tuna appetizer is my favorite menu item and once again it was perfect. Our table dined on the crab cakes (delicious with little or no filler), the grouper (perfect), salmon and a half pound hamburger. Everyone was pleased with their selections. As a bonus, all entrees come with fresh baked bread, caesar salad and two sides. There was little room left but our group of 6 did manage to share 2 desserts. My baked banana with ice cream made for a great ending. I should add that we were seated outside promptly at the time we had reserved. We'll be back next year.
We love to eat outside when possible.Being from Canada we don’t always have that option. The outdoor set up is great and the menu options are fantastic. Been here many times and have never had a bad meal. Great food and service.
Couldn’t get in for a week but so glad they take reservations. I love the lobster ravioli here. They also serve a good Caesar salad with each meal (love the Tri color tortilla strips) and yummy bread with herbed dipping oil. And my meal came with green beans, which is better than the typical mixed veggies. Will go here every year when we vacation in Florida.
Not suitable for a diner with a soy allergy or people who like food cooked without soy oil or “butter with soy in it.” Ruined our night as my meal came out way later and was nothing like what I ordered (the trout dinner special with crab meat and lime rice.... came out as dry trout with nothing on it and 2 veg because that's all they could do soy-free). Nice people, awful food. My husband and kids also didn’t like their burgers, pasta, etc. This was a great spot a couple years back (they were able to cook in butter and/or olive oil then), but now not a bit worth the price now, in my opinion.
The best seafood restaurant along the coast. Fresh seafood that is properly cooked. The prices are very reasonable. This is our 7th year of dining here when we visit FL.
I food and service were excellent. They need to go Cracker Barrel to teach them how to cook green beans. They give you green beans that are not cooked and tough.
We got in early...reservations hard to come by. The Waitress was OUTSTANDING! The food was good and reasonably priced. I can understand why Guppy's is so popular.
Brad was an awesome server! We have been coming to this restaurant for 3 years. We make this place one of our regular places to eat during our yearly trip to spring training in March. Best food, great prices And awesome service!
Have dined here in past & at sister restaurant E&E. Both have lost their luster. Food was lukewarm, waitstaff rushed....steak not same quality as in past. Fairly disappointing
Food was excellent, just do not like choice of how they cook green beans.
Great night of food, drink and fun! Highly recommend
Been away from Guppy’s far too long. Still the best on Indian Rocks Beach. Grouper sandwich was outstanding. Can’t wait to go back again!
Very, Very Good. 4+ stars. YES, we would go back. LONGER VERSION: We are Tampa locals who had been to Guppy's before and wanted to grab a lunch during a gorgeous day. Guppy's is not on the waterfront, but across the street from the public beach access. That being said, you can still "smell" the sea breeze and it was a delight sitting outside. SERVICE: Promptly seated at Noon, and our waiter did a Good job. They were busy during lunch and he was juggling a number of tables. Food came out perfectly timed. FOOD: My wife had the Grouper Sandwich (grilled), and I the Grouper tacos (blackened). Sides of sweet potato fries and fruit, with a nice local IPA to quaff it down. Very, very tasty, we both would order them again. OVERALL: The is a nice casual Gem in Indian Rocks Beach and we give it 4 thumbs up. Parking is ample and if the weather is good, the beach is right across the street. Not a high end place like Oystercatchers or Ocean Prime in Tampa, but a local delight. Value is excellent.
Guppy's never fails to impress. Even on a busy evening, a reservation assured we were seated promptly and almost immediately greeted by our server. The seafood menu always has a variety of choices and the "menu-of-the-day" added some creative alternatives. Food was well prepared and delivered at a good pace. We'll be back!
Good , service was very good
With 8 people for Phillies spring training and had a great time !
I had three guests from Kentucky and would consider no other place for lunch with them by Guppy's as it can always be counted on for excellent service, great food and casual atmosphere. My guests were very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our outing and promised to return again. The server was outstanding.
We had made reservations and our table was ready for us. Service was impeccable and friendly. We chose to eat out front which is street side but the vegetation and night lights made everything perfect. Lots of seafood on menu but I chose a chicken dish and devoured every last crumb of it!
Guppy’s always proves to be an overall great experience. Service was great, seated on porch per request with reservation, and food was delicious. Our party ordered the crab cakes, lobster bisque, Caesar salad, and the panko encrusted chicken cutlet...all were delicious. We finished our meal with the fabulous key lime pie for dessert . We will return.
Swordfish was wonderful; red snapper a bit over cooked. Lovely atmosphere outside! Good service. Really still best beach fish place.
Excellent food with thoughtful presentations.
6 of us met for lunch, between us we had 5 different meals. We were geeeted,seated,and served in perfect timing. All meals were very,very good. The food is prices are well in line, however we all thought the wine and cocktail prices were high. We'll all continue to go back and enjoy Guppys fine dining.
Beautiful February afternoon. Requisite outside dining. Appropriate ambience.
Knowledgeable friendly staff. Quite suited to a delicious luncheon - which it was.
Wonderful choices on it's interesting and imaginative menu.
We've done this many times. Will certainly do it again!
This is my third visit to Guppys and I really enjoy going there. It is a little noisy but once you get seated, it's fine.
We dine at Guppy’s every year while vacationing in IRB. The food and service are always fantastic. We’ve never been disappointed!!
Awesome food and reservation sitting as planned. Awesome place.
As always Guppy’s did not disappoint. Food, drink and service was great. Had family visiting from Ohio and they always choose Guppy’s for dining out.
We were directed to this restaurant last year on a vacation last year. Although we were staying about 35 miles away this year, we made special plans to once again dine there. We love the food, the location and the total experience. If in the area again, we will be back
Great menu attentive service artfully presented delicious food
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!
Nous avons soupé à l’extérieur. Les meilleurs crab cakes.
Our second time here. We invited some o,d friends to join us and they loved everything about the place just le we do. Service was prompt and friendly and meal was superb. Recommend it as a top restaurant in the area!
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.
This is definitely a neighborhood gem! Although it was very busy, the wait staff held up brilliantly! There are a lot of older people in the area, which makes for a very slow clientele! Customers were often in the way and unaware of the staff attempting to maneuver around them. I was VERY impressed with the employees. They were patient, pleasant and still managed to get their jobs done!
The food was very good! The shrimp sautee entree was one of the best shrimp dishes I've ever had.
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.
All in our party said their food was excellent. We had a corner table on the deck which was very nice. Our waiter was very attentive. It was a wonderful experience since we were hosting the group!
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.
