Turkey Reuben at Courtside Grille – St. Petersburg

I have eaten an inordinate amount of Reubens in my day. It is borderline shocking that I have never eaten one before at Courtside Grille in St. Petersburg. Shocking because when The Husband and I first started dating, we went to Courtside quite a bit. Nestled in the Feather Sound area, Courtside is a perfect place to catch a game or take a date. It is both classy and hip, and the TVs are amazing. I have yelled at said TVs on more than one occasion.  It is partly owned by former NBA star Matt Geiger. On this most recent visit, we caught Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The place was hopping, and it seemed like most of the crowd was pulling for Miami to beat San Antonio. Even though it was super crowded, we were seated immediately. The place is huge. I was happy to see they had added several “skinny” drink options to the drink menu. I went with the Margarita. It was delicious.

For an appetizer, the stuffed mushrooms are always a great way to start a meal. The caps brim with jalapeno cream cheese. We ordered them fried, but you can get them baked if you so desire.

The Caesar salad was tangy and refreshing.

Spencer ordered the Blackened Fish Tacos. They were fair. The fish was a little fishy (he didn’t mind, this only bothers my palate, apparently) and the Chipotle dressing overpowered the veggies and cheese.

My Turkey Reuben was outstanding. Every bite of the turkey, sauerkraut, Swiss, and 1000 Island was delicious. I would order this sandwich again in a heartbeat.

We topped it all off with this little bit of cookie heaven.

The food here is usually solid. The staff is always helpful and friendly. It is one of the nicest places to catch a game. Lucky for us, the Heat pulled off an amazing comeback win, sans headband.
