Delicious food at a delicious price at Maggie's on the Bluffs

I normally do not eat someplace more than once before I tell you about it; but I thought about keeping this place a secret!

Maggie Mae's on the Bluffs is simply food paradise.  I have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed, in fact I've loved it more each time.

Located at 2961 West Bay, Maggie's is located in a strip plaza just before you cross the bridge to the beach.

                         (I used this picture from their facebook page as I forgot to take one!)

Maggie Mae's is full of friendly servers and it seems a lot of local people. Listening to servers talk to the customers, it sounds like they are longtime friends. This is the kind of place where I like to be! A "Cheers" of sorts for the breakfast and lunch crowd.

Since I have been here more than once, you will get to see a lot more food pictures than I normally post.  I've enjoyed breakfast several times as well as lunch more than once!

Getting pictures where no one is sitting is very hard, as the place is usually full.

Everything that you need is right here at your table! I love the shelf so as not to take up the valuable table space that you need for the food!!
 Breakfast: Corned beef hash with eggs and toast.
A big burger!!
Turkey wrap

 Melt (can't remember what kind, though!)
 This was from my most recent visit.  The fish and chips platter with coleslaw.  This was $6.99! I thought I would get a small piece of fish, fries and a soufflĂ© cup of coleslaw. Boy, was I wrong!
 Same day, hubby had the pork tenderloin sandwich.

The salads here are also amazing.  The restaurant is kept very clean.  Bathrooms are also kept tidy.

If you want to dine outside, there are several tables.

Maggie Mae's is open daily at 7am.  If you have more questions, they can be reached at (727) 724-4243.  Tell them Afternoon Delight sent you!

Tasty and fresh while easy on the wallet - Sunset Grille in St. Petersburg

We were deciding where to go for lunch and happened to be stopped at a light when we spotted Sunset Grille!
My husband used to go here all of the time, but since we live in north county, we rarely get down to that part of town.  He excitedly yelled, "Sunset Grille - I want to go there!" I had been there once before, but did not eat anything.  I am not sure exactly how long they have been here, but I would bet on 50 years.

There is a main bar in front with 2 pool tables. Inside the restaurant/bar there are more tables. The area where we sat was in the very back which is open with another bar and more tables.

I started perusing the menu, but then I spotted the $5 lunch sign.  Really, five bucks!?!?
There are also daily specials, but once I saw Buffalo chicken sandwich - that was all I needed to see!  My husband ordered the burger and we both upgraded to tater tots.

The food was fantastic.  The blue cheese dressing (or you could get ranch) that came with the sandwich was absolutely delicious. I was using my finger to get every drop out of the cup!!  The tater tots were cooked to perfection.

Our server was super-friendly and efficient. 

This will definitely be on my list of places to go when I am in St. Pete.

Sunset Grille is located at 2996 Dr Martin Luther King Jr St N in St. Petersburg.  If you have any questions, they can be reached at (727) 823-2382.
