Pretty much sums it up. Good food and prices, but terrible parking. We still make the trip but if the 12 parking spots are full we move on.

Agwetmore, Thank you for the good review on our food. You are right, the parking has always been a problem. We have tried with neighboring businesses to secure some of their parking, with limited off and on success. We have just gotten 3 additional permanent spots in the dog grooming and sunglass business lot 2 doors down. We have access... More

What a wonderful little spot. The servers were so friendly and made great recommendations on what to eat. Definitely try the Cuban and the cheese grits! The prices are reasonable and I will go back the next time I'm in St. Pete, for sure!!!

While I haven't had dinner at Trip's, I've certainly enjoyed their breakfast and lunch service. The owner takes everything up a notch in terms of quality ingredients and presentation. Only downside is very small parking lot and street parking usually takes you down at least a block. If you live within a 10-15 minute walk, then walk. But then, if... More

Everytime we go to Trip's the visit is fantastic. The wait staff is the best and the food is wonderful. If you want a plate covering pancake, this is the place. Secret is out on the best cheese grits I've ever had!

I went to Tripps mid afternoon. It was pretty empty. The food was just average, nothing special. Up North diners generally have very good food and although a little expensive, are fast and really good. Tripps doesn't meet this level. It's not expensive but rather bland. Service is ok. Bon average. 💤

Great place if you are in a wheel chair. Easy outside and inside access as long as they are not on a long wait. Great food. Good service. I will return in my wheelchair.

I've been coming here for years when I visit; always make it a point to visit!!! Had the cheese grits today for the first time. How'd I miss that? Could have had 2 bowls...

I knew from the minute we pulled up with the line out the front door this was going to be the place to be for breakfast on a Sunday morning in St. Petersburg. The wait was relatively short, 15 minutes and definitely worth it. Service was prompt and friendly. Portions a tad bit small except for the pancakes. Get the... More

We had a late lunch here. Very clean and great service. There were enough choices on the menu for everyone to find something that they liked. I had one of their salad - it was delicious!

Thank Elaine B
