First of all I am a local in Pinellas County and find that 90% of the restaurants are not worth visiting. This county is typically franchise chains that cater to tourists. My wife and I went out on our anniversary to Guppys. We have not been there for over 20 years. We were pleasantly surprised how new and clean the place looked. There is a very appealing outside eating area and the inside is even better. We both had very good fish dinners and a octopus appetizer. The octopus was very good with the tomato sauce and fetta. Excellent bread with spiced olive oil. The server (Berni) was very attentive and excellent service. This is the best place on IRB, and we have been to all of them. We will definitely return to this gem. A must visit place.

The food is always good (try the grilled octopus!) and I love the small plates. As a 'local' it is often sad not to be able to get in due to the tourist traffic, but we will keep coming as long as the food and value are so good.

Guppy's was our favorite restaurant during our recent visit to Sand Key. We were fortunate to have found this restaurant at the beginning of our two week stay. We ate at Guppy's for both lunch and dinner and we look forward to returning during our future trips to the area. The food was excellent and was presented beautifully. Our favorite drink was their jalapeno margarita which was the best we ever had. The service was great and they did everything they could to make your dining experience the best it could be. We really enjoyed having our meals on the patio which was very comfortable and clean. We would not hesitate to recommend Guppy's to anyone looking for a great dining experience. It is truly a five star restaurant.
