Firstly, let me get the downsides out of the way. There is generally a wait and sometimes a lengthy one, even if you call ahead or place a to-go order online. Dinners can get a little pricey. For those who are used to ordering a main course protein and receiving rice or noodles with it, they do not do that... More

The food is excellent. I don't know if it has changed owners or not but the food is amazing. We ordered at least six dishes they were all delicious. Grouper was so tender, beef clay pot to die for, honey walnut shrimp mouth watering. Wow! As I local and lover of Chinese food it's worth the drive from St pete... More

The restaurant is only open in the evenings. There is no buffet and all food is made fresh. Don't expect much taste in decor but the food is very tasty and fresh. Will go back for sure!

The restaurants owners have changed recently. We were not aware of it until the familiar faces were not there. We tried our usual Peking Duck, Clams, ABC Cold Plate Platter and unfortunately it wasn't the same. The Duck was plain. The clams were full of onions and no flavor besides onions. The appetizer was the only thing going that was... More

I went by there tonight (a Tuesday) after getting no answer on the phone and found them closed but a notice of hours of opening was clearly posted on the door stating that they close Tuesdays, so please don't be so quick to trash this place! Most Chinese around here are 'freezer to fryer' take-outs and I have only heard... More

Got an order to go, and it was a mixed bag. On the one hand, the roast pork lo mein was a 5 star winner. Probably the best I've had since moving to Florida in 2007. The won ton soup was Hong Kong style, and while I don't know what that means, I do know it wasn't the typical won... More

Go to any typical neighborhood Chinese restaurant in the States and what do you find: hundreds of square yards of table tops covered with a sweet-sour brown sauce over nondescript chicken, fish and beef all seasoned to the same McDonald's poisoned American palate. Go to ABC Chinese Seafood and prepare to pass out: instead of goo over whatever, you'll discover... More

Last evening (Tuesday 3/11/14), and based on the TA reviews, I drove to ABC looking for a nice home cooked Chinese meal, and to my dismay the parking lot was empty, the sign was not lit and the restaurant was dark. There were no hours posted on the door indicating they were closed or even just on Tuesday's, and when... More

This terrific Chinese seafood specialty restaurant "hides" in a nondescript strip mall in northeast St.Pete, on 54th Ave.North. Either have a reservation or plan for a rather long wait. People know about this place and definitely patronize it. Live seafood occupy a group of tanks ( shrimp, crabs, lobsters and a variety of finned fish ); plucked from the tanks,... More
