“Great value, fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

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 price and the staff is friendly and accomodating ! Thanks!

“Fun Spot, good food, but not for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

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 all this after reading TripAdvisor reviews where folks were looking for a different experience and were disappointed. If you're in the mood for a lively, friendly place with good sandwiches and good service, you're definitely in the right place.

The beer is cold, sandwiches terrific, and the home made chips are out of sight. Try the turkey sandwich on a pretzel roll, a juicy burger, French dip, or a Philly Cheese steak (not on the menu, but they will gladly make it for you). Fries are delicious ...indulge! Oh yea, the Caesar salad is great as well.

Weather permitting, sit outside enjoy the view, chatter, and music!

Bon Appetite!

Thank you for your comments....we constantly use your comments to provide continuous improvement. I would like to point out that we do have a booth area in the back bar area that is not noisy nor crowded. We provide this atmosphere for our patrons that are looking for a quiet place to dine. The front bar area is more of a sports bar atmosphere and can get loud. When you return, please try our booth area that serves the same great food. Thanks, Paul and Christine

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

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!

“Great food, good service, cold beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

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 from earlier visits. Wish we could go back tomorrow!

“Wrong meal, rude response”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Four friends and I went to the Boardwalk on Wednesday evening, 5 March, 2014. In the past I have always been very pleased with the food and the value there, although the place can get very noisy when crowded. Our server was Jason O., according to my receipt. One of my friends ordered the Liver and Onions dinner, as he is a fan of beef liver. What was served was a serving of very overcooked and dry chicken livers with french fries, and no onions. When he inquired of Jason that what was served was not what was ordered, Jason responded with a bit of attitude, and told him that was the liver and onions dinner. Although the menu description does not specifically specify beef liver, it definitely does not indicate that it is overcooked dry chicken livers. My friend ate about half of the serving, and paid his bill, but we are a bit hesitant to venture to the Boardwalk again, and if we do, we will have to be very specific about what we order.

I apologize that you had a bad experience at Boardwalk. We are in the top of our season and been extremely busy every night. 99 percent of our patrons are very satisfied and many are repeat customers due to the excellent food we serve at a solid value. We also pride ourselves on top notch service. We do, in fact, offer both beef and chicken liver entrees. I am surprised that, although you received the wrong liver dish, it was not to your liking....we get many repeat customers who rave about our chicken livers....many saying that they are the best they ever had. Regardless, you are entitled to the food you ordered cooked to our standard of excellence. Jason is a new server and did not handle the situation properly...he has been reprimanded. Please accept our invitation to come in and have your meal prepared to our standard on the house. Please see myself, Paul, or my partner, Christine, to get your meal. One last thought, we always have a manager on duty, if you are unhappy with service or food quality, please ask to speak to the manager....I guarantee your issue will be taken care of.
