“Very Cute Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely lunch here after visiting the Syd Entel Galleries. The food was good, not spectacular, but the delightful ambiance and attentive service made up for the average food. It's a bit loud on the enclosed porch, so it was a little difficult to hear the live music (which was definitely worth hearing). I would highly recommend for anyone other than serious foodies.

“Stuffed Mahi-mahi is a Great Catch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

What ever you choose on this menu will have you hooked to come back and try other menu items. I had the Mahi-mahi stuffed with blue crab and lobster and it was fabulous. The generous portion of both the stuffing and the fish had a very tasty key lime sauce. I don't normally eat carrots but heir carrots are by far the best, as they are some how caramelized and taste almost like grilled sweet potatoes. My wife gets the shrimp and grits (and she never eats grits), but loves this dish and continuous to order it. The atmosphere is a quaint artsy 1930's house with each room having 4-6 tables, and decorated it appears by local artists. We have eaten there several times, and the service has always been excellent.

“Where the regulars go....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

...because it's always a winner! Five years and running and yet to have a bad bite. Inviting music, casual atmosphere, great wines and great place to dine. Come see for yourself!

“hidden jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Green Springs Bistro in Safety Harbor was a delightful surprise. With a charming entrance, the inside is intimate and cozy. The food was excellent, but I would give awards to the presentation. Very artfully done. And have to say that our young waitress was delightful. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out

“Cute place for a bridal shower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

I attended a bridal shower in the back room of this cute restaurant. It fit our party of 20 nicely and still allowed us to hear the wonderful guitar player in the next room. The service and food were good. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and some of the other guests had the big salad and the spinach enchilada. After seeing the enchilada, I wish I ordered that instead because it looked very good. The decor is bright and funky, which made it fun. We were lucky to get a parking space outside the restaurant because there aren't many available. Be prepared to drive around the block a few times. All in all, it was a nice day.
