My girlfriend and I have not been to downtown St Petersburg for some time. Parkshore Grill's location made exploring Beach Drive very convenient. In addition, both she and I had seafood and it was excellent. We'll go again.

Food was excellent. We had the grilled mix seafood, the grilled scallops, and the crab and avocado salad with 2 scallops. We also sat outside which could be hot for some in July but it's great to see the people walking by and for enjoying the downtown area. Service was also very good.

What is there not to love about this place? It will be difficult to find. The ambiance, waiters (Geoge al Fresco, Reese indoor), chefs and management excel in their areas of responsibility. The result is an exceptional dining experience. Restaurants are aplenty, but few are worth their final bill. Not true here. George and Reese are not McDonald's like order takers. Far, far from it! My husband and I are a bit picky when it comes to entree selection. George convinced me that I'd find their crab cake much superior and delicious to the cakes I'd had just days before, and Reese was just as convincing with another dinner entree. Both were delicious.
We had two successive meals at Parkshore, and were tempted to have dinner there the third night, but for diversity sake chose not to do so much to our chagrin. (Won't make that mistake again!)
Oh, I must mention the wonderful Lobster Pasta, Cesar Salad and Parkshore Salad.
The awards earned by this restaurant are much deserved.
One of the best anniversary dinners ever, and we've have quite a few.

Not only do I say I would recommend Parkshore Grill, I did so yesterday. It's really a great restaurant and good servers. The food is consistently excellent. It's not inexpensive, but I always feel I got what I paid for.

We had brunch here recently, and found it to be very empty inside. Good outdoor seating options but very hot. I ordered the Caramelized Banana French toast and it was amazing! My husband ordered an omelette, and it was just OK. Service was professional and prompt, prices typical for Beach Drive brunch. Will try again!

We arrived at our reservation time and were seated right away. Joe was our server and we were instant friends. He gave us all of the info on specials, drinks, and asked for our preferences on appetizers. Everything we had was just perfection and Joe did a wonderful job of checking in with us but not overbearing. You can tell he really enjoys his job.
We were pleasantly surprised with how wonderful the night was having picked the restaurant at random from online reviews. We'll be back for sure and will recommend Parkshore for any of our friends in St. Pete :))

Excellent food and very attentive service. Noise level in the back was annoyingly high; we had reservations and there were many open tables and booths up front. Would have requested move if we'd known that the back area was going to be packed in like it eventually was.

We were told by friends that we simply must try Parkshore Grill. We could not have been more pleased from start to finish! Wine, mussel starter, wonderful salads were all impressive. Then we had the best filet mignon with the best scalloped potatoes and it certainly did not disappoint. To wrap it all up creme brûlée that was perfectly prepared. The service was just outstanding from Josh who is knowledgeable and very engaging. Highly suggest this restaurant for any occasion!

There was a nice variety of choices on the menu. They offered both light failure and a more extensive meal. I had salmon and a salad that was delicious. The other people at my party also want to join very much what they had. Our server was friendly and polite

We really enjoyed our dinner at Parkshore Grill.
We started off with Calamari which was lightly breaded, crispy and very tender.

My wife had a pork chop which was served in a nice portion and very tasty and I tried the Beef Wellington which was cocked to perfection and also a nice portion.

Prices at parkshore grill are reasonable, and as the portions are nice sizes and a very nice ambiance with great service its well worth a visit

We have dined at Parkshore for years including many special events including my daughters graduation brunch and my husbands 50th birthday. Father’s Day was our most recent visit and I feel will be our last “brunch”. Starting with the atmosphere. We were in the back room in the very corner where if you sat on one side of the table your view was obstructed completely. It was (and always is ) freezing. The temperature shouldn’t leave me shivering and many people we sat near felt the same. While I know it was a busy day as it was Father’s Day...we did have reservations..the food for 4 people...3 omelets and a French toast took 45 min to arrive . Had that 45 minutes been worth the wait would be one thing. French toast was burnt and dry and the omelets were subpar. I would recommend not putting green pepper or any bold flavored peppers into your potato side as it is one of only a few sides. Overall we left not full and for the pricey Bill not feeling the worth. We fine dine quite a bit and appreciate those experiences that the price tag comes with...but in this case the 92$ bill for 4 people with what was ordered (no alcohol drinks only 3 waters and an iced tea) left a bad taste in our mouth. Dinners have been wonderful but no more brunch spot for us.

Very elegant venue and wonderful service. My husband had the rack of lamb which was scrumptious. My seafood risotto was chock full of lobster, cobia and shrimp and was very tasty. We splurged for dessert and the creme brulee and "chocolate bars" were amazing.

Perfect place to celebrate our anniversary.

When you are planning to take your beloved spouse to dinner on her birthday you only want the very best, that describes the Parkside Grill. The moment you arrive until you depart you become the staff's center of attention and they deliver in a big way our Waiter Zack was great, attentive, knowledgeable about the food, the Chef, the restaurant and the downtown St. Petersburg area. If you ever find yourself in the downtown St. Petersburg do stop in to the Parkside Grill you'll be treated like Royalty and
The food itself is as amazing as the service.

Our server was terrific. The meal was solid as it always has been when we eat at Parkshore. A really good meal and an overall very pleasant experience. Wonderful whiskey list as well. You have to request the list. It’s much more extensive than I was aware. Your staff should really make sure people are aware of this list.

Had a great birthday lunch after going on a Segway tour of the St Petersburg waterfront. Our server Thomas did a great job and the food was really tasty. Great outside dining area except next to the public walk where smokers would pass obliviously exhaling right over your table. Maybe next time I’ll ask for a table closer to the street or the building, not next to the pedestrian walkway.
