Lots of food, good atmosphere but food is not great. Good for friends and wanting to enjoy the weather without spending too much.

05.19.14 visit. The parking is confusing but we found our way to the door. I'm not a smoker and was nervous about the previous reviews. I smelt a slight hint of smoke at first, but the air was pretty well clean. Killer nachos were ok, chili seemed out of a can. Cesar salad pretty good.black and blue burger was great...not... More

I had lunch today at the Boardwalk and was a little disappointed. I ordered chili that was described on the menu as being lightly spiced but was to spicy for me to finish. For lunch I had the Island Chicken which was over cooked and very dry. The Red Beans and Rice also seemed to be over cooked and had... More

We really like this place, but we visit it much less often because they don't control the smoking areas at the bar and outside seating from ruining the non smoking areas meals. Sometimes it's not a problem, and other times it completely ruins the meal, depending on the wind direction. Unfortunately, it is a very common problem in Florida restaurants.... More

Thank you for your comments. it is true that we do provide access to the bar from the outside porch area. we only allow smoking in the outside area to accommodate our smoking patrons. We strive hard to keep smoke out of the main bar and dining area. Fortunately, this is not normally a problem because the prevailing wind is... More

We went to celebrate our grandsons 2nd birthday and received the worst service (for the 2nd time). We knew it wasn't going to be good when we had to wait 10 mins for a menu- we should have left then! We ordered our grandsons meal first because he was hungry-good thing because we had to wait over 45 mins for... More

I have done considerable investigation, and have not been able to determine when you were in Boardwalk Pasta and Seafood. We certainly do not condone the behavior your described by any of our staff. If I can get more detail, the server will be reprimanded or dismissed. It is possible that you may have been at another restaurant in St... More

I enjoyed my first visit when I moved here, then brought spring break visitors back second time, all good. Loved loved loved blackened grouper Caesar, buddies loved house made chips and ribs, great service from Jamie. This will be our go-to place, so lucky to have it nearby in the Isla-TV neighborhood! The locals' favorite, now I know why.

We actually dined here twice during our visit to st. Pete. Once as a couple for a late dinner. The other with family we were visiting. Both experiences were great. I had fish both times..blackened mahi and friend grouper sandwich. Both fresh and delicious. My boyfriend ordered the island chicken both times...he obviously liked it! You get great food for...

The Boardwalk is a neighborhood bar and sandwich joint that's tons of fun, but not for everyone. If you're looking for a quiet intimate dinner, this is not your place. The Boardwalk is always crowded, noisy, and lively ...waits are not uncommon. They have tons of seating indoors and outside overlooking a lake and fountain ...really quite pleasant. I mention...

Our family went there for lunch and really enjoyed the experience. The service was perfect. The food was delicious. Our group had seafood chowder, soup of the day (beef vegetable) , buffalo shrimp, grouper Reuben and fish tacos. All really, really good!

Our last meal in Florida before returning to cold, snowy Michigan was lunch at the Boardwalk. Four of us ordered different entrees, all of which were delicious - good burgers, a wrap and an excellent fresh grouper sandwich. Ice cold Yuengling on tap was a bonus. Waitress was friendly and efficient and the owner stopped by to chat, recognizing us... More
