The Island Grille & Raw Bar

Reviewed By natnpr - Gulfport, Florida

New location is awesome. Wonderful decor both inside and out. Best place to enjoy oysters, especially on a Tuesday. Normally food and service outstanding, today, not so much. My order of fried oysters arrived cold and my husband got his order of fried after we were all done. Oysters were still good, so they just must have been super busy in the kitchen. There wasn’t an empty seat in the house! Still love it there, a must try for visitors.

My wife Laurie and I dined at Palm Court during our recent stay at Trade Winds resort in St Pete's Beach last week.

Audra is hostess extraordinaire and Mike is a fantastic waiter.

I highly recommend you make the Palm Court part of your dining experience while in St. Pete Beach.

Sola Bistro & Wine Bar

Sola is a casual bistro-style restaurant with an eclectic menu featuring specials influenced by world cuisines, and of course, our own Armenian and Russian roots. While the menu has a great selection of Mediterranean dishes, we love experimenting with unique ingredients, and fuse different techniques and preparations with the best products we can acquire. Similarly, the wines we offer are carefully selected from the world over to compliment our wide range of internationally inspired dishes. Located on St Pete Beach, FL, we feature the best seafood around, source very high quality meats and poultry, and make as much as possible in-house, thus cutting out the unnecessary preservatives and chemicals. We strive to create and serve only the freshest food and the best wines, at very reasonable price, in a comfortable, relaxed bistro-style atmosphere.

We happened upon this place while heading to our hotel after Happy Hour. Looked good so in we went. Seated immediately and in a good spot. Waiter (owner) got our drink order right away and explained the specials. Nice menu, good choices and a variety of wines, beers and food.

Enjoyed the fish soup, kale salad was sooooo good, the carbonara and the grilled fish. Fast service but not rushed. Nice atmosphere with a relaxed feel. Crowd included couples, families and groups of all ages. Really enjoyed that aspect of the place. Small bar area if you want that option.

Service was really spot on.

Despite the almost universal 5 stars there were only a few tables occupied on a Tuesday at 6 PM. Which is crazy, since all the chic-chic new places are about "fresh", and Good Times has been doing it for 40 years! Maybe it's the type...Moremargaritaman44, Soo glad you found us!

Reviewed By Diane K - wallingford pa

My husband’s aunt took us for a drink overlooking the beach . We all had a drink and we shared the charcuterie and chees Board. We loved this and ate every bit. I had a blood orange margarita and she had a mojito. My husband is a fan of craft beer so he was intrigued by the beer selection. Our waiter was a lovely young man from Moracco. He was friendly and interesting. Points off for the craft beer in a can that he poured at the table. The view was fabulous but it was quite windy. We really enjoyed ourselves. We come to St Pete annually but never saw it from this point of view before.

ALSACE french bistro

Reviewed By Tom B - Norwalk, Connecticut

Have been there many times with friends for dinner, lunch, and brunch.

If there is a better place for solid, country French, Alsatian influenced food in the area I have yet to find it.
It helps that the chef and his partner are Alsatian. Last night was a surprise as the chef's parents were cooking.
The third partner, Diane, is from the US, fluent in French, and just as much the fabric of the place.
The menu runs from crepes to osso bucco. The onion soup is textbook. It is all sourced as fresh as possible. This is sauce country so everything has a flavor strategy. There is some simpler fare like a breaded chicken breast if austerity is preferred.
The desserts are amazing. Cream brulee rocks but the dessert crepes steal the show. Last night we found out what an accomplished baker mama was. She made what I would describe as French version of tiramisu that was more substantial and flavorful.
The service is attentive laced with a sense of humor. They know the food, know how it s made and their descriptions are full and accurate
The wine list is small but is chosen by them and not some salesman. They allow byob for (I think) a 15 dollar corkage fee.
How they deliver such quality at what I consider a value price amazes me.
That is the good news. The bad news is that they only have 10 tables. They also stagger reservation times by 10 or 15 minutes so as not to overwhelm the kitchen.
Lunch is almost always a walk in but anything else needs a reservation to assure no disappointment.
There you have it! A place I really like.
See you at Alsace.

St. Pete Beach Produce & Deli

Reviewed By Steven C - Big Bear Lake, California

While staying in the area, the wife and I stopped by here to pick up a sandwich and chips for our dinner in our hotel room. The Italian Sandwich was very good and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, they did not have much selection on the chips but they have fresh produce, deserts, and several other items for purchase including wine. The place is clean and everything they offer is of good quality.
