and that is only the beginning. Live music, great food and friendly servers! When we were there last the special was fried chicken and dumplings for $8.99! The Chatterburger is the most famous burger in town. This place is a treasure! Bring the kids, grandma, the dog, have a birthday party, bring your own wine (there is a corkage fee)... More

Great place to enjoy casual outdoor meal or just a beer amid Florida flowers and palms, butterflies, and fountains. Fabulous burgers, best grouper sandwich, yummy onion rings, nice people. Share a table and meet the locals! And, Pristine clean restroom - hey, it counts!

Some locals recommended; we never would have found it. Funky, colorful, fun outside "garden" seating.....food was ok...we just had burgers and good sandwiches...but fun experiencing all the tropical colors and "gee-gaws" :). Inside is an explosion of an old timey English tearoom. Every wall plastered with english china, teacups, teapots,.....total dichotomy of atmosphere from outside but fun to see as... More

If you want to experience an authentic local Florida restaurant Chattaways is the place to go for simple food like fish and hamburgers. This is where the locals eat, not a touristy place at all. The hamburgers are great! Our friend had the blackened grouper and said it was great. The staff are awesome and totally not all trained to... More

The food was okay during our first visit there. But, it took nearly 45 minutes to receive our small orders for just two people. Unbelievable.

Our first time here after driving past it for years! The weather was perfect for sitting outside, so that was a huge plus. The seating, at picnic tables mostly, is not super comfortable, but it fits the atmosphere, which is a pretty, tropical garden. We were there at night and the whole place is covered with tiny lights..very pretty. So...the... More

The outdoor experience is charming with the trinkets and bobbles. My children really enjoyed the fish pond. I come here when I'm in St. Petersurg and it is a consistently good hamburger.

Everyone should stop in at the Chattaway to experience what eating out was like before fast food was born. I remember eating at Chattaway with my Grandfather in the late 1950s and many times during my teen years in the 1960s and it hasn't changed much. On this visit I tried the "famous" Original Fried Chicken dinner and have to... More

Cahttaway's famous for their Chatta-burger was excellent 5 years ago. Not so today, today it lives on its former reputation. We went out of our way to Chattaway's this past weekend. Everything was dirty outside, not just old and worn, but unclean with a layerof dirt on top of almost EVERYTHING. What ended our frail positive relationship with Chattaway's was... More
