Fabulous meal at Parkshore Grill! A very large party left just as we arrived and The dining experience was less than perfect since waitstaff spent 20 minutes rearranging tables after they left. Other than that one irritation, a splendid evening! We will return!

There were several large groups that were quite noisy the night we were at the restaurant. The service was quite good, despite the large groups. Waitstaff apologized for the noise. Food was great, and service was outstanding - especially considering how busy the place was.

A great find. Staying at St Pete Beach Don CeSar (where the food is pretty poor), we went hunting for places within a 15 minute drive and the reviews for the Parkshore Grill stood out. And for good reason! You can’t beat the food here - great crab cake, partner had lobster toast...twice, so must be exceptional. Two visits on successive nights. The first went like a dream, great attentive service to go with the food. The second has a hitch with a less attentive server, but the Maitre d’ stepped in and served us himself (and he hasn’t lost his skills one iota). Loved this place, and we will be back next time we’re in town.

Have loved this restaurant for a long time, but was disappointed in my entree this last visit. I think it was related to the fact that the server incorrectly communicated with the chef about my entree.

Excellent service and great food. I had lunch with two old friends. We had not seen each other in many years and had a lot to talk about. We were not pressured to hurry and order which was great because we had a lot to talk about. The server was very accommodating and even ran outside to find me after I left to give me my leftover box. Will definitely return.

One of the best restaurants in St. Pete. Our "go to" place whenever we have visitors to this great city, or by ourselves or out with friends. It is very popular...indoors or out. Great for people-watching on Beach Drive. Food ALWAYS great. We live locally and we eat there at least once a week.

This was our first visit to Parkshore and we will be back. I have a restricted diet due to a health issue. Chef Tyson and our server Cory were so helpful in helping me with dishes that would accommodate my reatriction. Regret not being able to experience some of Chef Tyson's culinary creations, but appreciate the help in making our Anniversary evening special.

What a lovely place to celebrate my birthday. We had a wonderful server named Laura who went out of her way to make the evening very enjoyable. The chef’s dinner choice of three courses was delicious- tuna tartare, salmon belly, & NY strip with lobster Mac and cheese! One notable distinction from many other up scale restaurants these days - we could hear each other without shouting.

Parkshore Grill was a disappointment. We selected it based on reviews for a special occasion and drove over from Tampa. The restaurant seemed to have an identity crisis. Is it a casual beach restaurant with inexpensive tapas and wines by the glass or is it an upscale restaurant with very expensive entrees which included no sides? Half the patrons seemed to be there for the casual beach restaurant and half for the special occasion spot. Those two things don’t jive in one restaurant and created a confused ambience. Food was good and adequately presented but not special. My vote is for a fine casual beach restaurant but not a special occasion venue.

We drove from Naples to meet up for lunch with friends traveling from Orlando. This restaurant is beautifully located near the boardwalk on the bayside of St Pete-near Dali and other museums. Wonderful food and outstanding service. My husband and I enjoyed the crab avocado salad...a real treat! We will definitely visit again when in St Pete-for lunch or dinner.

The Parkshore Grill is everything the reviews have lauded it to be. A wonderfully diverse menu providing something for every taste and budget. My wife had the 3 course chef's meal with an outstanding corn vichyssoise, then sauteed and sliced scallop properly dressed, and finally a seared tuna fillet with wasabi mashed and perfected presented veg. I had the most delicious meatloaf that ever crossed my lips. Inga provided tremendously friendly and professional service. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant and we will return again and again.

Parkshore Grill gets so many accolades we thought it would be a nice spot for a birthday dinner. Service was excellent but the dining room is so crowded and loud it was hard to converse among our table of 3, let alone hear the waiter. Food was good, but not off the chart amazing. I’m glad we checked it out, but won’t rush back.
