Lunched there 3x in 3 weeks, so it must be good!
The place has this ramshackle look, and they even have a van parked outside to match (see photo). It's almost always full and seating is tight, but the food and service more than make up for it.
Our favorites were the clam strips, Whole Fish Corvina (crispy outside and so good) and the Alaskan Snow Crab. The fresh shucked oysters were so-so; the steamed clams with butter was better.
Staff was pleasant and very attentive, and service was fast. Good value for your money. I'd go there again next time I'm in St. Petersburg.
