Located at 1701 Gulf Blvd. in Indian Rocks Beach Florida, there sits quietly a charming restaurant that almost could pass for a beach bungalow. Welcome to one of my favorite restaurants to visit- (while visiting my family in Florida) Guppy's On the Beach! When you arrive you see an array of tables for al fresco dining with large hangar style fans and seashell mulch. Inside, you will find tables adorning white table cloths, sophisticated design, and a laid back fine dining experience.
The menu is filled with numerous seafood choices from head Chef Scott that feature local delicacies like Fresh Grouper to pasta and steak entrees. My family all loved the Florida Lobster Tail!
They also sell t-shirts that all have such creative artwork- they look more like a Tommy Bahama shirt then a souvenir. The one Jason purchased had a black and white sketch of a cigar smoking Guppy :)
Their website is definitely worth checking out (the background song is an old fav of mine). Pictures, menu, directions and reservations all there. But what is really worth a look- recipes of dishes they serve! I plan on making both the Blue Crab Taco Tower and the Fire Cracker Shrimp Salad...yum.
I think when people go to a restaurant they go for the food, however what they remember is the experience. This is such the case with Guppy's. I have been a follower on Facebook since my last visit and every weekend they post their specials, making me just wish I was there!
So if your in the Clearwater area, make sure you stop by.
