The food was good , the waitress was terrible. The girls were all standing back in the corner talking. The absolute worst thing was that the place appeared to be infested with black mold, starting with it covering most of the floor and

Wow!! this place really needs a new cook!! Even the mashed potatoes were bad. Two meals at 35.00 plus and we had to carry it home to the Dogs. No flavor in our meats it looks like they had some teenaged guy in the kitchen that didn't know

They renovated, thankfully and got rid of the dead weight they were carrying with the old wait staff. So that's a plus. Some menu items are quite good...the broccoli bites, the chili, the chicken sandwiches, the fries, the fish dip. Some

I generally order the breaded pork cutlets on Thursday night and have never been disappointed. I had the corned beef last year and was not disappointed, but this year it was GREAT...

Pros: best I have had in a long time

Someone told me that this was a great restarant. The word there being "used to"!!! The food was ok, service poor, restrooms disgusting. I did get some brown lettuce with one tomato slice for 3.70. The atmosphere leaves alot to be desired. Would not bother to ever go back.

Pros: Food Good

Cons: Small portions and bad service

Try the Fish Spread with hot sauce and jalapenos. And/or the fish special. Excellent! Plan on watching a game there, beautiful friendly bar with good draft beer selection.

Babalu used to be a very good diner type restaurant. They recently renovated and in my opinion, the place has really gone downhill. Yes, the former building was old and kind of run down, but that is what gave it atmosphere. The renovated building is much more attractive, howvere for some reason, the food and service now suffer. The last time I went there, we waited forever to get waited on. When someone finally did come over, she was not too bright or very friendly. I wanted to order wings, which has always been one of their most advertised specialties. I was told they were out of wings. It took a very long time to get our food, which was only OK as opposed to before the renovation, when the food was quite good. It also took a long time to get our check when we were done. I rarely do this, but I left a very small (under 10%) tip. I am not sure if we'll go back or not, since their are a lot of other good restaurant choices near by. I would have given this a 1 for my last experience. I only gave it a 2 becuase it used to be good.

Pros: good menu variety

Cons: Terrible service

We must have had the worst waitress in the world. After she served our meals, she never came back to refill our drinks. We had to go to counter to get our check, and she over charged us! The food was just ok, if it was GREAT we would try again with another waitress. Just not worth giving them another chance.

Im a SAHM of an 18 month old and twin 4 month olds... needless to say, I don't get out much. I love the fact that they have free delivery for lunch and dinner as well a HUGE variety on their menu! Seriously... their menu is at least 5 pages long!

I don't know who it is that I talk to on the phone everytime but young lady, if you are ready this, I can't thank you enough for being sooooo accomidating and so polite no matter HOW busy you are!

I recommend this place to everyone! They are so good and soooooo inexpensive!

I read the 3 reviews and took their advice. We just moved and had to find a place to eat and was tired of pizza. The apartment complex gave me their menu and we ordered. We had the italian sub, smothered chicken sub, buffalo style chicken fingers, and the nachos all delivered. They said it would be 50 minutes and we got it in 35 minutes. Everything was hot and beautiful!! I totally will order take out again and I can not wait to go and eat in the restaurant!! Good eating.

OK, so this place is awesome! The burgers are atop the best in St. Petersburg... seriously, and if you really want to push the limits of your intestines and your bathroom @ home, then I suggest you try the "St. Petersburg" .... Trust me, if you aren't glued to the seat of your camode for a solid half hour after that unique mixture of BEEF, chili, sour cream, and GRAVY then you haven't lived! What an experience. Thanks Babalu for the IBS :)

Pros: great burgers - great laxatives

Cons: nothing at all

This restaurant/bar is not very attractive from the outside or inside but the food is affordable and good. Their menu has a variety of American style foods ranging from burgers to shrimp. They have a great selection of homeade desserts and there is also a mini-bar if you just want to go for a quick drink.

I've heard about this little restaurant for years but wasn't lucky enough to try it until a couple days ago. I was impressed! What a menu - over 5 pages worth from salads to sandwiches/burgers to steaks and seafood, they've got everything! The portions are humungous, the service is great, and the prices are below expectations. Lots of great food for a cheap price! Will definetely eat here often!!!
