Meet Robin King, Three Birds Tavern

Posted By LocalShops1, Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Robin King and her husband, Jack King, opened Three Birds Tavern in St. Petersburg in October 2009. The Kings completely revamped the restaurant, housed in a century-old farm house and surrounded by oak trees. Three Birds, at 1492 Fourth St. N., features plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, and offers American classics with a modern twist for lunch, dinner, and late night, daily.

"We hope to be a part of your family celebrations, and to be here to comfort you during your rough days," Robin says.

Tell us a secret! This old house has been a residence, funeral home, orphanage, business office, biker bar, British pub, and, it's haunted. But don't worry 'bout a thing, 'cause they're friendly ghosts! 

Your story: After falling in love with food in Indonesia in the early '80s, learning to cook in New Orleans in the late '80s, and working special events for years, I finally decided to make the industry that fuels my passion a career, rather than a hobby. 

Favorite part: Watching tables of guests share celebrations, first dates, quiet moments, loud stories, sporting events and solo outings, while sampling new beer or wine, and enjoying delicious food. 

Biggest struggle: Maintaining a staff that share our passion and desire for excellence. 

Favorite local businesses:

  • Brew D Licious, St. Petersburg
  • Mazzaro's, St. Petersburg
  • Treehouse Gallery, St. Petersburg
