We thought we’d try Guppy’s On the Beach while on vacation. It’s not on the beach, it’s AT the beach. They have a good menu with a variety of items. We felt most items were a little pricey. My husband had rainbow trout with a...crab sauce on it. The fish was cooked good and was tasty but not very big. If your looking to have a nice piece of fish ask them to hold the crab it overpowered the fish. I had the fried shrimp. They were good but not exceptional. Not much different from what I’d make at home. It was a clean restaurant but lacking in atmosphere. You walk through a maze of different rooms to get to your table. Service was only ok. We decided we probably would not return next time. Nothing really went wrong it just wasn’t what we expected.More

The food was the best we had at IRB. The mahi and swordfish were excellent. They take reservations which helps with our group of 10. Will be back!

Always good. First time we did not have to wait. Sat outside a perfect setting. Smoked fish appetizer was very good. My wife loved her coconut shrimp and i had scollops. Always a good meal and the bread was good.

Nice surroundings. Starter- Lobster Bisque- I was so hoping that it would be tasty and moderately full of lobster pieces! But that didn’t happen. It was served lukewarm. I would suggest not to get the cream on top. Small, small pieces of “lobster meat” as...the menu describes the portion. Maybe a dozen pieces of 1-2 millimeter size lobster bits. Cheeseburger was dry. Decided not to try dessert. Waitress was attentive.More

My wife comments that that would have been us 25 years ago....No biggy! Make sure you call for reservations well ahead. Will be back for sure next year!More

Had lunch on the patio. The ocean breeze was wonderful! We had trout and seafood chowder. Both dishes were excellent! The salad was also very tasty. Will visit here again.

We were going to another place which was closed and decided to try Guppy's. We are glad, since the food and service were very good. We really just had snacks, the Lobster Bisque and the Housemade Smoked Fish Spread. Both were very good, we'll be...back!More

Walked in on a busy Friday evening and they found us a place. Our server, Ellen N , was great and helped us make our selections. My wife had the True North salmon and I had the Trifecta burger. Both meals were amazing, the best...meal on our vacation. We wanted to get a couple of their tee shirts but they didn’t have our size and they are discontinuing selling them, so we were bummed about that. Overall, exceptional food and service. I highly recommend it!More

Best meal of our stay in Clearwater Beach. Bread was to die for, lobster absolutely delicious, so was the wild rice. Key lime pie to close the night, fresh and refreshing. Will come back for sure.

The food here was nothing short of phenominal! I had lobstercargot and the sirloin topped with lobster and blue cheese. My son had lobster mac and cheese. We love food...and good food at that. This places does not disappoint. Authentic, "real" food. AMAZING!

We liked it so much we ate here twice in a week. The short ribs were excellent, as was the lobster-cargo. Our 2nd visit I had the grouper, which while very tasty, was a fairly small portion (although to be honest, that seemed to be...the case everywhere we went. Small grouper portions). Servers were knowledgeable about the menu and service was quick.More

Finially managed to stop in for an early bird dinner today. It was excellent! Coconut shrimp, Salmon coated in coconut with a very tasty sauce. The best surprise was the Caesar Salad. Tasty dressing, and they didn't skimp on it. Rarely can I eat an...entire meal, but I cleaned my plate.More

Yes they used to have a mandatory tip but that changed about 2 years ago. I am surprised you had bad service that has never been our experience in 20 years .
