Waited forever on a Thursday night to get a simple meal. I had a salad and my friend had calzone. If you’re going to charge $25 for a steak salad at least use good greens, not iceberg, and a better cut of steak. What a...rip offMore

If you’re looking for a bar/restaurant that caters to vacationers, boaters and other sun and water worshipers, you’ll probably like Guppy’s. If you’re looking for a memorable meal or a quiet place to enjoy dinner and conversation, this isn’t the place. While the portions are...big (shareable), the food is average at best and a bit overpriced. However, the place always draws a crowd “in season” and the people watching is probably worth a visit. My suggestion, try appetizers and drinks and find dinner elsewhere.More

We had taken a short weekend trip to the Jamestown area and heard about Guppy's from several people as a popular place to go to eat but were told if you don't get there early especially on the weekend you will wait quite awhile to...get in so we arrived about 5:40 on a Friday and only waited about 15 minutes for an outdoor table. The nice thing was you could get a drink and wait outside under a tent you didn't have to sit in your car and wait. We were given a table outside by the bar in the corner which was great. Our server was Alexandra and she was adorable very friendly and knew the menu, it happened to be Mexican month with several specials....my husband had the Cajun wings then shook in hot sauce which he said were delicious (you cannot get wings in Buffalo right now) and I had the taco pizza which was different because instead of ground beef they put chili as their base, it was ok just had a chili taste and kidney beans on it which I didn't care for and it was pricey ( medium taco pizza $22.00) the crust was delicious though. We were there to be outside and enjoy the company. The thing I thought was so unique was you can actually eat in a gondola car in their lot which was fun, they have seats on both sides and small lights on the ceiling for ambiance.....(we didn't sit in one as I'm sure it gets hot in them in summer months they are small seat 4 adults) they also have chairs out front shaped like fish....a truly unique dining experience especially for kids. Some of their drinks also come in fish bowls and you get to keep the bowl when done, something to set them apart from other restaurants. It was a great fun experience as we always look for different types of places to eat when on vacation.More

Recently we ate an early dinner stopping after a long day of antiquing. The place is what you expect for a tavern...we did not sit in the gondalas opting for indoor seating. The food was good and the portions more than generous. Although I felt...the prices a bit high, the portions and food quality reflected them. Honestly I am not a light eater and my seafood enchiladas was enough for two meals. The service was wonderful and friendly. We felt comfortable and welcomed. I loved my drink and felt it well prepared and tasty. That all said, I felt the food unimaginative. The menu was more interesting than my dinner. There was nothing that distinguished this meal from any other good tavern dinner. Dinner for two of us ...non alcoholic drinks...no appetizer, no dessert was $50 including tip...More

This is one of those great little "hole in the wall" restaurants. Where the outside isn't much but the food is delicious and the service is great. Had the spinach grilled chicken salad with pecans...so good...pecans tasted cinnamon roasted. Everything was fresh. Tried the chocolate...martini - also good. It's small inside and not a lot of seating, so go early. The owner, Doug was out and about checking on customers. Wait staff was excellent...very attentive. Even had a large party there and we were still given great timely service. Cons: parking is tight and the dirty glasses hanging over the bar when you enter doesn't give a good first impression. Prices were a little high. Overall, we would definitely come back.More

Guppy's is by far an awsome place to relax after your day on the lake, the food is amazing and of course the beer is always cold not to mention the great selection. Christy and Doug the owners always make you feel at home and...welcome. My buddies and I have been stopping here for years while fishing the area. Looking forward to our visit this year !! IF VISITING THE AREA DO YOURSELF A FAVOR STOP IN AT GUPPY'S THIS PLACE WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!! Tight lines all see you soon...More

Walked to Guppy’s from Maple Springs Lakeside Inn. Had a wonderful atmosphere and great food! They observed covid 19 rules in seating you. Also had a very friendly waitress. Yes, I would definitely recommend this restaurant and bar!
