We've visited St. Pete Beach & Treasure Island and thanks to Trip Advisor and the reviewers, we're learning that you can get some of the best food at the most surprising places. My sister recommended The Boardwalk Grill, telling us they'd had the best burgers ever here. We went on a Friday evening at about 5PM and the place was... More

On vacation Day 1, & picked this based on TA reviews. The lobster roll was excellent & I am originally from Mass. so I've had many! My husband got fish & chips, but the fish batter was overcooked (hence 4 stars, not 5). He had ordered the fries well done, so I guess they got confused & did the fish... More

This is the first place that we went to eat when we arrived in town. The food is always excellent. Wait Staff was great. Always come here for the lobster roll and the beer battered onion rings. Have never been disappointed. We will continue to come here for the excellent food.

We have walked right by this place many times. Because of reviews we stopped for lunch and we're not disappointed. Our server Sarah was helpful and recommend the combo lunches when we ordered everything separately. The fish tacos were the best. Tortilla shell was just right with fresh grouper. Husband had Philly Cheese sandwich. It was huge and delicious. Will... More

After a parasailing at Gators, we stopped in for lunch. My wife had the lobster roll, which was as good, if not better than we have had in Maine. I had the Philly cheese steak, which was great. The French fries were awesome. Great little find and the guys working there were very friendly.

Run by a small tight group of pleasant and efficient... More

Established in 2007 We are a casual waterfront restaurant located on the boardwalk in Johns Pass Village. We started as a small ice cream and coffee shop in 2007. We slowly expanded over the next few years slowly bringing in more and more food items. Now we are a one stop shop on the boardwalk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We pride ourselves in the quality of our food and love to hangout on the boardwalk and talk about fishing. Come on out and try our Authentic New England Lobster Roll, our delicious fish tacos and of course our famous Boardwalk fries, you wont be dissapointed.
