All Dining

St. Pete/Clearwater has made a name for itself as one of the best places for foodies in Florida. With everything from casual seafood joints to innovative, chef-owned restaurants, you can find tasty delights on both ends of the culinary spectrum.

Given the region’s location on the Gulf Coast, fresh seafood is a must. Enjoy the best grouper sandwiches in town from spots like Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill and Hog Island Fish Camp. Or go for something a little fancier with a visit to Salt Rock Grill in Indian Shores or Sea Salt in St. Pete. Fresh seafood and other culinary delights taste even more delicious when you dine waterfront, at popular restaurants such as Bon Appetit Restaurant in Dunedin and Island Way Grill in Clearwater.

But seafood is just the beginning of St. Pete/Clearwater’s diverse food scene. In charming Tarpon Springs, find some of the best Greek food in the state at spots like Hellas Restaurant & Bakery and Mykonos. In downtown St. Pete, international options abound from Cuban Bodega to Italian BellaBrava to Lebanese Baba. And for a special occasion dinner, the award-winning small plates at The Don CeSar’s Maritana are sure to excite your taste buds with their bold flavors.
