Emerson's Fish Camp was open 1 day when a group of us went to check it out. It was actually day 1, so they had not even been open a full 24 hours yet. We were immediately greeted and welcomed when we walked through the door.
Since it is a holiday weekend and they just opened, there was a limited menu. There were several of us, so we ordered lots of different food and shared all of it.
Although it's small, don't be surprised by the high quality of food and service. The bartenders and waitresses very friendly. But, my favorite surprise of the day was ice cold Rolling Rock cans!! That sure made this Pittsburgh girl happy!
Since the restaurant is attached to a motel, the pool is right behind the restaurant. So, you may have some great entertainment while you are there too!
Our group just started ordering food. The first thing that we ordered was chicken tenders - and we ordered it three ways, but I cannot remember the sauces! I wrote everything down, but misplaced the paper! ($6.95)
Notice the skins on those fries. When my parents owned a bar (years ago) my mom was constantly cutting potatoes for the fries. Oh, that brought back such great memories. They were hot, fresh and delicious.
Next up in the stream of food was pulled pork quesadillas. My friends started inhaling the food before I could snap a pitcure, so we covered the gap with fries! This was 3 orders, but we were hungry! ($6.95)
I haven't had a patty melt (made correctly) in so long, I almost forgot how great they are! Grilled onions, melted swiss cheese and a fabulous burger on rye make a fantastic patty melt. ($8.95)
Emerson's Fish Camp is open 7 days a week from 11am to 10pm. You can find them at 17100 Gulf Boulevard in North Redington Beach right in between the Sandalwood Resort and the Hilton Doubletree Resort. Questions - call 727-828-9933.
Tell them that you saw them on Localshop1.com's Tampa Bay Afternoon Delight! Enjoy the ice cold beer and fries! I sure did.
