We had reservations for a Sunday brunch at 1:30. It was a beautiful day and the restaurant was full. We were seated in the back room next to two tables which each held about 10 people. Apparently they were occupied by one large extended family who were celebrating something. Our waiter was trying to serve us, this large party and another large table. Needless to say, he had little time for us. It took almost half an hour before he got around to taking our order and about 20 minutes for us to be served. When the order came, it was put on the table and the deliverer left without inquiring whether we needed drinks refilled, (we did) or wanted additional condiments. My husband had the shrimp and grits which were good if not exceptional. I had the crabccake Benedict, which tasted only of salt. The eggs were beautifully poached but the sauce was completely bland and not even rich. This was accompanied by some flavorful but also very salty potatoes. I would have liked some hot sauce to give my eggs some flavor and another cup of coffee or water because of thirst from the salt but could not get anyone's attention. I ate half my food and gave up. The noise was so extreme that all we wanted was to get out of there. It took a while to get our check and we did express our disappointment in the quality of our food to the waiter. We had eaten in the restaurant before and had positive experiences and better food. After this one, we won't be back.

Hostesses on Sunday the 12th were not the friendliest. We had reservations and they sent us inside, but no one was there to show us to our table. After a short time she came back to seat us as the inside hostess was assisting someone else. Loved our server, but he obviously had to many tables to wait on. We had finished our meal and our empty plates sat in front of us for awhile. Love the food.

Went especially for their steaks. Big disappointment as we asked for rare and both got brownish/pink. Ordered Fish cakes as meal not starter and both were fried to a crisp so just dug out the inside. Sides of Asparagus and Brussels not good so left most. Crab & avocado salad only quality item. Meal with wine was $301.00 for 3 people so not value for money. Won’t be back or recommend.

Met a former friend for a review of past times and current happenings. Server seemed to sense our conversation was serious and treated us professionally. Food was excellent. We sat outside on a pleasant day for me (a Floridian) and a treat (for my friend from Michigan).

One dish not delivered to a guest until we were halfway through the meal. That oversight put a bit of a pale on the evening, which was with very special friends. Other than for that, service was good. Grouper, salmon and desserts were excellent.

This was our first nye at Parkshore. I was a little concerned when we were shown to a dirty table in the back of the restaurant despite having a reservation for several weeks and seeing many open set two top tables in the front of the restaurant. The ambience in the back of the restaurant was less than festive. That being said we had a lovely meal and good service. I thought the prix fixe was a good value.

The busy holiday week and ,as expected, Parkshore Grill was really great waiter who knew all the details about the menu, food preparation. We treated friends from out of the country and came here because we knew we would not worry about a thing. Great place anytime and special during the holiday season.

I was looking for a good steak dinner and chose the Parkshore Grill based upon the excellent reviews I saw on the internet. We were not disappointed. Our filets were perfectly cooked and delicious as well as the potato hash browns. Our waiter (Troy) gave us 5 star treatment from start to finish. Fantastic meal and great service.

Parkshore is a good place to go for special occasions or a nicer meal out. We had a variety of steaks and seafood and all were cooked properly. Our server was very good. The one dish I did not enjoy were the sauteed mushrooms. I've had them in the past and they didn't taste the same this time. Not bad, just not great.

Hostess could not find our reservation and acted like there were no available tables. When she found our reservation she put us in a cramped table with our 89 year old mother. Not normal but certainly noteworthy.

Service felt a bit rushed. I've eaten here many times...Menu has NOT CHANGED in the 2.5yrs I've been having dinners here. Previous dinner we had up in the bar, and found it more convivial and "fun"/interesting. The "alley way" seating area to the left of the front door is annoying busy with servers running back and forth since the serving station is at the far end. The table seating towards the back or middle is better overall. I like this place, but menu is "dated" somewhat and relying too much on traditional items. Needs some interesting mix-up, especially with desserts too. I have had "Chef Specials" in the past, but lately have not found them too inspiring to order.

Food was excellent. Lunch trio special for $20 was a good value. Crab cake appetizer was full of crab. Just make sure they confirm your open table arrival at check in

We waited 20 minutes before anyone approached our table. I finally waved down someone who really jumped on our waiter. He was very responsive after that.
I ordered the fish special. What I got was not what was described to us. It was OK.
Very busy evening-great location. Second time there. Probably better food when not so busy.

It had been some time since we'd made it over to St. Pete to the Parkshore Grill. We'd always enjoyed it in the past. We're so glad we went. We had the Beef Wellington which is a favorite of ours and which you don't find many places. It was excellent and so was everything else, including our waiter. We hope it won't be such a long time before we get back again.

We frequent Parkshore; it is our go-to spot for a great steak and incredible value overall. Our waiter this time was Rudy, and he was spot on - just perfect. We have never had a bad experience here - ever! Steaks and sides are cooked perfectly every time. Highly recommend!

We have been going to Parkshore for at least 10 years! We’ve always loved it and the food has never disappointed. Not so 2 weeks ago -the steaks were not up to their usual fine standard, they were not memorable and portions seemed smaller. I would much rather see a restaurant reduce quantity and maintain quality. I hope this was merely a fluke but we all go the got the feeling that Parkshore changed its food supplier..

Wonderful host/hostess and our waitress was also fantastic. We always love the food. I was so impressed that my comments in the reservation were read, and that a table was held for us outside as requested. We will come to Parkshore over and over again - when company is visiting, and just for enjoyment for ourselves as locals. Thank you so much and happy holidays! -Kirsten
