Despite the title you can eat inside and not watch the dolphins, but I always choose to eat outside. In the late afternoons the dolphins swim through and that is a free show from nature. It is located next to some docks so there are also boat ramp follies to entertain as well. The brown bread with honey butter is - well - incredible. The staff is eager to make your experience a happy and relaxing one and requests for substitutions or changes are met with smiles and "sure, no problem" attitude. The waitstaff is always there when you need them but not in a hovering bothersome sort of way. The pies are all fantastic, so you can't go wrong with any choice. The pricing is better than average for this area and two people could reasonably expect to eat for under $25.00. The only negative at all is parking as it is limited. They let you double park so long as you advise the door person of the make and model of your vehicle. If you forget you may get towed. I highly recommend the Warf

I've been to the Wharf every year I've visited St. Pete. It's a bit beach 'divey', but the view, service and food are surprisingly great. The German hostess is sweet and funny. all of the seafood is very fresh and very reasonably priced. Not a place if you're looking for something fancy, but a good, solid seafood shack on the water.

I'm sure that not too many tourists visit this place since it is hidden off some small streets. Our friends took us there while visiting them in St. Pete's. It's an average local establishment with some tables and booths that are made for thin people. Although none of us are very large, you felt cramped in the booth. The service was good, but some of the waiters and waitress had food stains on their cothes. The menu was a little confusing with items like a scallop basket and a scallop plate. The waitress explained that the basket was a smaller portion, but the price difference was only a dollar. We did have to ask for some clean silverware.
It was not a bad place, but a typical local bar. Located on an inlet from the ocean, they had windows, but the scenery was basically some old beat up docks. At one point a seagull scared my wife as it tried to fly in the window.
An okay place, but nothing to go out of the way for.

The food and atmosphere were disappointing. We were hoping for great seafood, but we got generic, fried bar food. Not what we were hoping for.
