The favorite gathering place for locals and visitors is the perfect spot to enjoy lunch and/or dinner along the magnificent sunset. Savor the chef's Daily specials such as Blue Crab Taco, Jamaican Jerk swordfish, Potato Crusted Salmon, and Grilled Jumbo Sea Scallops and Shrimp. The extensive menu serves the freshest of seafood. In addition Filet Mignon, New York Strip Steak from prime cut of tender Black Angus Beef are cooked to perfection. Specialty sandwiches include the popular signatures Guppy's Grouper Sandwich. you may choose your favorite wine from their stellar wine list or enjoy their generous cocktails at their newly designed full liquor bar. A great selection of home made desserts along with an espresso or cappuccino will be a delightful way to finish off your dining experience. When on the mainland please visit our sister restaurants E&E Steakout Grill and Mystic Fish.

"It's kind of difficult to find a perfect restaurant. If the food is excellent, the service might suffer a bit. At Guppy's, everything is in sync. The selection of seafood dishes is always fresh and prepared in inventive ways. Small plates allow you to try several offerings without overeating or taking home a large doggy bag (which would not be a bad thing). Oysters, swordfish, shrimp, everything is just delicious."

The Mystic Fish Seafood Grill and Bar has been rated among Tampa Bay's Top 30 Restaurants since it's opening in 2001. Offering affordable, casual, Florida dining at it's best. Mystic fish serves some of the freshest and most creative seafood dishes as well as buffalo, duck, beef and nightly specials. You may choose your favorite wine from the stellar wine list or enjoy their generous cocktails from their full liquor bar. A grand selection of homemade desserts along with espresso and cappuccino will be a delightful way to finishing off your dining experience. A stylish decor of film sculptures abalone shells and custom fish tanks is the backdrop for a special relaxing evening. Located one mile East of US 19, just five minutes from Westin Innsbrook Golf Resort. When down at the beach please visit our sister restaurants, Guppy's and E&E Stakeout Grill.

"Service is always friendly yet professional. The food is fresh, creative, and delicious. We had the wonderful hog fish, lobster duo, scallops and ribs, artichoke small plate, my favorite, the always changing, always terrific vegetable plate. I can't say enough about this excellent restaurant. It's the best food experience in the Tampa Bay area although their sister restaurant, Guppy's runs a close second. Their Eventide, early dinner specials are a total bargain if you are able to be there between 4:30 and 5:30 pm."

"One of the nicest things about warm weather is the opportunity to have a meal outside in the fresh air. I'm so happy with Chat because of their outdoor shaded patio, their pleasant and efficient service and their fresh food. The heirloom tomato salad was delicious and the fish wrap all that I had hoped for. I will definitely return."

"We love brunch and love to try new brunch spots but every time we try somewhere new, we compare it to Chat and it comes up short. The outdoor patio is a lovely shaded spot. The service is always excellent and the servers are unfailingly pleasant. The eggs florentine is my favorite dish but there are many breakfast and lunch options to choose from. Iced coffee in a mason jar is not a new idea but it's terrific here. The patio can get a little crowded with large family groups but that means others enjoy Chat as much as we do."

"This has always been a favorite restaurant of mine. The new clear tent over the patio area and the fans makes eating outdoors even more pleasant. However at a recent brunch, the food was considerably less than stellar. Oyster po boys were served stone cold on round brioche rolls that had bottoms so soggy that the sandwich had to be eaten with a fork. The pork tenderloin with eggs and grits looked like it was tumbled out of a pan and wasn't warm either. I'm hoping that this is just a temporary lapse because I love this place. Otherwise, service was great."

"An unfortunate combination of poor acoustics and a couple of large, rowdy parties made the noise level on the second floor actually painful. That was a shame because everything we had, from the scallops to the salad special to the ravioli was really, really good. I felt bad for our server who was working very hard but had to deal with noise complaints from several tables. It sounded like a Super Bowl party at a frat house. We would have loved to stay for coffee and dessert but couldn't take the noise. Somebody dimmed the lights, possibly to encourage guests to tone it down but that didn't work. I've been here several times before and never heard it like this. I think that it might be better to come during the week or off season."

"Chat has become my favorite summer brunch spot. The service is excellent; pleasant yet unobtrusive. The range of options is large covering both breakfast and lunch. My favorite is the Eggs Florentine. The breezes flow through the outside patio and umbrellas keep the sun at bay. Iced coffee and cappuccino keep you cool. A+ in my book."
