Guy Harvey Outpost – Rum Fish Grill




The Guy Harvey Outpost

Guy Harvey is responsible for the artwork on the hull of the Norwegian Escape, so I had to go and check out the Guy Harvey Outpost and the much talked about Rum Fish Grill restaurant.

The restaurant is probably the most interesting looking restaurant on Gulf Boulevard.

I arrived early so had plenty of time to look around and take photos.  The hotel is located behind the back of the restaurant, leading onto the beach.

Everywhere you look there is more amazing artwork.  The hotel rooms from the outside looked very clean, fresh and appealing.  I would definitely like to stay here on my next visit.

Every part of the hotel reflects Guy Harvey’s passion for marine life and conservation. Even hallway to the pool and beach area is beautiful.

We headed back to the Rum Fish Grill as we still hadn’t seen one of the main attractions.

There is a viewing area for the fish tank which is outside of the restaurant.

An incredible dining experience

Rum Fish Grill

When you dine in the Rum Fish Grill, you get an ipad which not only has the menu and games for the children to play, but there is a fish identifier which is really fun and helps you to learn more about the marine life in the process.  Please note that the fish in the tank are NOT the fish on the menu.

I can honestly say the fish I had was so tender and tasty, it was the best fish I have ever had.

The man himself, Guy Harvey, man of many talents.

There is a gift shop by the restaurant which sell all sort of things, such as clothing, artwork, homeware and this gorgeous flip flop plate.  I would have bought it, but didn’t think it would make it back in one piece.  It has given me the idea to do a transatlantic from Florida to Southampton after a big shopping spree here.

I wanted EVERYTHING in the gift shop

If you are visiting the St Pete Beach area, please go and check out this place.  This is a very popular place to eat, therefore you will require a reservation for the restaurant. This can either be done at the hotel or on Open Table.
