pretty good

I am a local and work my to Chattaway once or twice a year. The burgers pretty good. Great spot to see if you are visiting and want a taste of old Florida.

We took a Segway tour in St. Pete and one of the locals in our group recommended the Chattaway as a great place to have lunch. Four of us went there and we had to agree, this is a place that you don't want to miss. The atmosphere is---quirky? Eclectic? I'm not exactly sure what adjective I'd use, but it... More

This place has been around since the 1920's. It is long on style and great on friendliness. The burgers and Onion Rings were great, however the black beans tasted straight from the can, it seems like a restaurant , in a community rich in Cuban Heritage, would cook black beans from scratch. It is so cheap and easy. On a... More

A local family run restaurant which makes everybody feel welcome. Jillian and her family have run this restuarant for many years and most of the customers are regulars who live locally or like ourselves visit regularly when we are in town. The burgers are always special and there are a great selection of other items on the menu. A great... More

Stopped in for lunch today after this place was brought to our Attention. It's eclectic all right but not enough to warrant the high prices. The veggie burger was a big disappointment, tasteless. My lunch partner had pulled pork with a bland coleslaw on the side. All of this was rounded off with the smell of disinfectant coming from somewhere... More

Chattaway's has been a local favorite for decades. I recently stopped by and ordered an app of Lobster chowder. I visit a number of seafood establishment in the area and was pleased by the abundance of lobster chunks and strands in the chowder. Chattaway is definitly different with it's Coi pond and bridge entrance, outdoor tables and local weekend entertainment.... More

First off - this restaurant is very old (est. 1921), was a grocery store then 'morphed' in to a restaurant. Outdoor seating is the Place for atmosphere, but there is a small amount of inside seating. It is very clean and they have the BEST burgers (I had the Junior Chattaburger and it's big), the sweet potato fries (really chips... More

This rates as one of the best hamburgers I've ever had. Super nice people, great service, excellent food. Worth the visit. Very eclectic entryway.

Cute decor and good, friendly service. We enjoyed an excellent cheeseburger and lobster chowder with a lot of lobster, although the chowder was a bit bland ( but thankfully without the overused tarragon). The server even offered a go cup for our unfinished ice teas - a thoughtful touch. The restaurant does not accept credit cards.
