“Great dining on Beach Drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We dined at Parkshore Grill for dinner. The start of the evening as a bit rocky as we waited awhile for the valet and we waited 30 minutes for a table. I highly recommend making a reservation. Once seated we were placed in a quaint booth. Our server, Pete, had a lot of personality and definitely improved our experience. The manager was very actively involved which we greatly appreciated. We both ordered the surf and turf, delicious and flavorful. I also had the 'Bay walk' which very fruity and refreshing. Overall, it was a great dining experience. I highly recommend it.

“Nice place in a cool venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Not having a reservations wasn't the end of the world. They were still able to seat us fairly quickly. Grouper cakes were awesome and so was the pecan crusted grouper. Service was very good and very reasonable prices. We would love to have sat outside but it as too cold.

“Really good food; great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Six of us had dinner last week. Even though it was a cool evening, snowbirds have to eat outside any chance they get. We all ordered different entres, but I think I won with the pecan crusted tilapia. While they have a few combination plates, most items are ala carte. Salads are very good, but pricey, and the side vegetable we ordered (grilled aspargas) was very tasty, but a small portion for the price.

“Beautiful atmosphere, great service, expensive food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We stopped for lunch and sat outside to enjoy the weather. My daughter ordered the crab salad (maybe slightly less than a 1 cup serving of the mixture with a good bit of crab in it) and I ordered the lunch special - salad, lunch entree, and dessert. All were less than the usual size portions but enough for lunch portions. We both had water to drink and the water was very attentive to keeping our glasses filled (a challenge as much as we were drinking). The bill was $32. Seems like all the places along the parks and waterside in St. Pete are more expensive, and this is no exception. However, the service is the best I have had and the food was very good quality.

Walking through the restaurant to the bathrooms (exceptionally clean and nice) we noted the inside part of the restaurant was elegant and looked like a wonderful place for a special dinner for an occasional splurge.

“The Best on Beach Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Parkshore Grill was the first fine dining restaurant to emerge on the ever-expanding restaurant row of St Pete Beach Drive NE. Chef Tyson continues to raise the bar with healthy organic locally grown foods and creative presentations. It remains the King of the row!
