One of the members of our party was given a recommendation to eat at Guppy's by a local. We were glad for the tip. We sat on patio on a very warm evening and enjoyed a cool breeze coming off the gulf. Everything our party of 4 had was good, but there were standouts: a chef's special shrimp & lobster salad with avocado was excellent, far better than any "lobster roll" I'd ever had before, even in Cap Cod! Appetizer Risotto Cake was crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside. Dessert standout was the Chocolate Torte. We will plan to return to Guppy's on our next visit to the area.

After a week on vacation and cooking our one meals at the condo, we wanted to go to go to a nice seafood restaurant, and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant offers free valet, which was nice. The hosts & servers were very nice and warm. Its a cross between casual and dressy.

The food was great. I had the local gulf grouper pan-fried picatta with lemon caper butter sauce. I do want to mention that the breading wasn't crispy probably because it sat too long before getting served, but it was still very good. I will definitely come back if we return to Indian Shores.

We were taking a drive down the coast when we decided to try something local. We drove past Guppy's and noticed the parking lot was full even at almost 2 in the afternoon! We kept driving just to see what else was available but didn't see any restaurant with full parking lots so we turned around and headed to Guppy's.

We pulled up and were seated promptly inside the restaurant near the bar. Our waiter, Andrew, was ok. He wasn't as friendly or personable as others. We asked for his suggestions and he had none to give us. He wasn't able to tell us how certain dishes were prepared; however, he was attentive. No bread was given to us as we looked over the menu.

We ordered escargot, blue crab guacamole and fish tacos to share. The escargot tasted too buttery which it took the real taste away from the escargot. The blue crab guacamole was a great idea. There was plenty of crab to share but, it lacked seasoning. The fish tacos were by far the best. The fish was well seasoned, tasty, perfectly cooked.

There is a 15% service charge automatically added to your bill regardless of the number of people in your party. When I saw that on the menu I prepared myself for 'fair' service but was happily surprised to get excellent service. Overall, it was a very good experience. We ended up paying around $49 for our entire meal.

Would we go back? YES!!!

We live about two hours away from Guppies but love to take a drive to the beach and have lunch there. We have never been disappointed at Guppies and often take our out-of-town guests there. The coconut shrimp, crab cakes and fish tacos are our favorites. We recently had the salmon with mango salsa and it was outstanding. Their specialty cocktails are always a pleasant surprise. The servers are always pleasant, helpful and prompt without being overly so. We highly recommend Guppies for a wonderfully delicious lunch.

We ate here almost every day. Go for the specials. The ordinary menu is what it is: Ordinary. But the specials are fantastic. Fish is fresh and superb.
