My first time there was after a visit to Dali Museum.... stopped for lunch with my granddaughter and her boyfriend. I wasn't in the mood for meat....wanted some fish.... Well, the waitress suggested their Beer-batter Fish sandwich.... It was delicious - crispy and tasty.....and so much, I took half of it home.... Served with a large portion of fries and... More

This has long been a favorite pub style restaurant of my wife and I. We enjoy so many of the different menu items and of course there are some foods designed around the pub scene. Plenty of draft beer selections and the tenders are very knowledgeable. Need a taste, just ask for one. Thanks Matt for your return.

Went in hopes of an Irish Breakfast but found none. Service was awful and food the same. Cute place. Scotch eggs ok. Biscuits and gravy greasy. Had to ask numerous times for silverware and butter. Coffee was served luke warm and had floaties the first time. Hamburger came out raw! Breakfast sandwich was nothing special. Seems like a different place... More

Every time I visit St Pete I stop by Crowley's and have the chicken finger platter and a beer - before I start exploring the area. Their food is always fresh and made to order. I have had pretty much everything on the menu and it is all amazing but those chicken fingers are the best I have ever had.... More

Crowley's Downtown was our pre-game stop this weekend. We reserved the back room (seats 10 to 15, I'm guessing) and rounded up the Usual Suspects. One of the Crowley sisters was right on it taking care of us. I was able to get gluten-free beer. My husband had a nice black and tan poured the right way. Our German friend... More

We were walking through town looking for a bite to eat before a baseball game and stumbled upon Crowley's. There was a big Premier League soccer crowd inside which drew our attention so we decided to give it a try. Not a ton of tables inside but we were lucky enough to grab one. Nice bar area with a bunch... More

Our first visit here on recommendations of others. Food was good but not the best Irish around. Had the fish and chips and I thought the breading was too heavy and slightly over fried. Gravy tasted like it came out of a jar. Friend order pot pie and didn't look anything like a pie. He was a little disappointed. Server... More

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. The service was great and the food was wonderful! We had a burger with fries and the blackened chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. Yum to all. The burger was cooked perfectly and had the most wonderful flavor, just the right amount of everything, the brioche bun was a nice... More

The food is delicious and the brunch on Sunday is worth going in. Beer only but they have a good selection. Close to everything downtown
