Good food but not on the beach

The food was awesome! However we found this restaurant online and when we got there was a little disappointed that it wasn't actually on the beach! Their lobster bisque is so good i had to order another on to-go!!

We live just a few blocks from Guppy's and we go there at least once a week. It may be hard to believe but we have never had a bad meal. The food is always excellent, the servers and very nice and the atmosphere is wonderful. We rarely wait for a table but we do go a lunchtime and mostly... More

Best Lobster Bisque but.... Slow service. The waiter didn't have any knowledge on menu offerings and he was rude. Service was slow and the food was overpriced for what you got. Both of our sides were undercooked and took for ever to get help getting it fixed by then we were ready to leave. I would go for the Bisque... More

*Big tip: call ahead about 10 minutes before your arrival. We had been here a few seasons ago and enjoyed it and decided to go back again on the spur of the moment. It was a Tuesday at 6:45pm as we were driving there, and Open Table said they were full. *We called them anyway and left our name as... More

Nice restaurant and food is good. Usually crowded so reservations a must. Sister restaurant is E&E Stakeout which is also great. Tables don't hold more than six and the dining area inside is tight so large groups would have a problem. Bar area is small and tight when restaurant is crowded. Has valet parking which I'm not a fan of... More

We sat at the bar to avoid a wait. It got busy enough that we had too many people standing around behind us while we ate. The grilled octopus tasted like it was cooked after a steak and tasted like meat. The lobster bisque was fabulous.

Had amazing shrimp and grits here - spicy and delicious! We called to make a reservation, which we were told they couldn't do but they did put us on the wait list. As soon as we arrived and checked in, we were seated (even though there were several folks in line). There were only 2 of us, so I imagine... More

Very nice atmosphere, but don't let the name fool you! It isn't on the beach. The Caesar salad was delicious as was the fish!

Indian Rocks Beach is a subdued, island beach community and dining on the covered outdoor patio that laid-back vibe is easily felt. I ordered a Maryland Crab Cake daily special which, though I thought was a little pricy for lunch, was high-quality and flavorful. The beer selection was disappointing. Server Mike did an excellent job! There's a large indoor, air-conditioned... More

I've been going to Guppy's since 1996 when it was a little shack house. They remodeled since but the food remains the same...simply awesome...the best. The wait staff is great, sitting outside or in you get well taken care of. Guppy's is clean with a great menu. I HIGHLY suggest the chowder and the crab cakes...but I've never had anything... More
