Growing up in St. Pete I always enjoyed the place, but because I now live so far away I have not had the chance to have dinner here in many years. July 5th I was in town on business and my fiance was with me...so I wanted to finally take her to the place I raved about eating at when I was younger. Atmosphere was great & waitress service was beyond reproach. The appetizers of Smoked Fish Spread was delicious, and the Hush puppies were great. My fiance had never had clams fried before and I told her how good they were so she ordered the Fried Clams, Shrimp and Scallops combo while I ordered the Coconut Shrimp. Unfortunately and unknown to my fiance she did not know that fried clams are under cooked if they are soft and spongy. Needless to say shortly after we drove home she became ill and spent the night in the bathroom. I realize it was dinner rush, but serving under cooked clams is a big NO NO. I doubt she will ever want to return and eat at the 4th Street Shrimp Store again. Very Disappointed!More

Stopped here on the way home from the Saturday morning market in St Pete. Had our dog with us so sat on the patio. Server was very personable and knowledgeable about the menu. Hubby had shrimp tacos and I had shrimp/clams luncheon. Both were really...good. Will definitely be back.More

Warmed up or fried food which was ok, the fish tacos were very good. Clam chower ... or was it potato soup??. Disappointed especially after the reviews were good. NO Real butter for crab legs - (butter oil is Not the same as butter, don't...care if you say the package says butter 🙄) Service was good. 3rd time visiting and it was Not the charm. Do not see us returning.More

This was our first place to eat after we arrived in Florida. It was a perfect afternoon so we ate outside at a picnic table. Our server was very friendly and I think she was humored that we were so excited about how much we...loved the food. We ordered lobster and shrimp salads and the fish was outstanding and the greens were very fresh. We highly, highly recommend this fun restaurant.More

The first time I had their fried clams was probably 20 years ago during a taste of St Pete. I always try to visit when in St Pete for the day. Great food and love sitting in our Florida breeze outside.

From the Hollander Hotel, we first walked here in error on a Sunday, because the restaurant was closed that day, and then by car on Monday which was far more enjoyable since the Sunday walk was rather ugly. Party of four before tip cost us...$55, and the food was decent though not great. The $9 early bird shrimp specials were alright, along with homemade coleslaw. My boiled shrimp-to-peel was a bit ho-hum. My wife’s cod and potatoes were fine – nothing too memorable. As a soup master myself, their New England clam chowder ranked probably 7 out of 10 which isn’t bad for Florida. Good service from Tiffany. She reminded us of her name a few times, so I’ll never forget it.More

Got a basket of peel your own shrimp. They were juicy, delicately seasoned and all around yummy. Service was prompt and efficient. A great dinner! Would come here again.

If you like seafood from Red Lobster or Captain D’s, you’ll love this place. The peel and eat shrimp were disgusting. They had an opaque color to them and are inferior to the quality shrimp they used for their shrimp cocktail. The fried clams and...French fries were good. Service was actually great. The young man who helped us was friendly. Kudos to server/bartender, Christy, who calmly dealt with two nasty customers who were being extremely rude to her.More

We had it delivered, so I think it would have been better at the restaurant. It was okay, just not outstanding. We will try again.

Good service, good food, reasonable prices. We loved the blackened shrimp basket. This is a good sized restaurant with plenty of room for large groups.

I got cod ,shrimp and oysters all fried. Food comes out quick after placing it. Don’t be fooled by how your food looks when you receive it. Nothing fancy. Tried the cod first was I surprised. The shrimp was so tender. And the last was...the oysters to try. Trust me they get a 5 star for their seafood. Service was good also.More

Its the type of restaurant you'd see on Diner's, Drive In's and Dives. Just Go! MHi taco's, mahi sandwich were delivered hot and full of awesome. The chowder and Sangria was a perfect accompliment. The parking lot is an indicator of local tradition and respect....Can't wait to go back again.More

While in town we stopped there for lunch. There is seating inside and outside but it was a little chilly to sit outside. My husband ordered the fish tacos and they were the biggest piece of fish on tacos I have ever seen. He loved...them. I ordered the dual shrimp and it was a large portion. A nice local place for seafood.More

Nothing memorable about this place. The clam chowder tasted like grocery store bought. If you like fried seafood it’s fine.
