St. Pete Beach - The Warf

BeaN | Oct 10, 200405:23 PM

Shared a late lunch of appetizers at the Warf today.

The home made potato chips were superb, just as they were on the last visit.

The cracked conch, also a repeat from the last visit, was not quite as good. The conch was tender but the breading was a bit doughy. It is served with a nice horseradish sauce.

We also tried the calamari for the first time. The ample portion was served with a marinara sauce that Spousal Unit (SU) described as “less insipid” than the marinara served with calamari in many other places. The breading on the calamari was very doughy. SU thought that the oil perhaps wasn’t hot enough, hence the doughy breading on the conch and squid.

Last, we tried the steamed little neck clams. I think that I am going to give up on ordering clams. These weren’t as overdone and dry as the last two orders I have eaten recently (Frenchy’s and the Crab Shack on Gandy), but they were overcooked. Clams are so delicate, it must be difficult to get them cooked perfectly.

Disappointing meals make me wish that I had eaten at home.

We did have good service from start to finish.
