  1. It's too bad. They use to be good. Once they got involved with groupon it went down the craper.

    My wife bought me 2 groupons and when I went in I found the shelfs nearly bare. Fresh tuna that use to go for $14.99/lb was now $28/lb.

    All the fish looked old since who wants to spend twice as much as it should be. It smelled nasty in the store.

    I used one groupon for short ribs that after cooking was little meat and all fat. I got a refund on the other groupon and decided not to go back so it doesn't surprise me

    The Surf and Turf in Belleair changed their name. I assume to avoid association

    1. I have seen signs for a new butcher near 19/Curlew. Perhaps they will have "prime"?

            I guess that's far enough away for a bad reputation not to follow. They were good for years and had a good reputation. I guess just a few bad business decisions were enough to do them in.

            I hope they get back to what they were in the old days. We are still lacking in the N. PInellas area for a good place to buy specialty meats. Yeah I know Whole Foods is moving in but I'll have to read the survival guide again before venturing in. WF's gives me bad pretentious vibes.
