Here are 7 dinner places to try in St. Pete! With the Crossbay Ferry in action again, it would make a great date night to take the ferry from Tampa to St. Pete for dinner and a stroll around the new St. Pete Pier.

We picked out a couple of places to grab some food around St. Pete. Some of them allow reservations, so if you think you may want to go give them a call and get a res.

  • Gratzzi Italian Grille

    Review from Tripadvisor: Jeepermom
    This is one of best restaurants we have visited in a long time. The menu had many dishes that are not served at other restaurants. The food was delicious and portions were large. The chef knows what he/she is doing!
    The ambiance is nice. Our waiter was very helpful helping us to make our choices, was attentive without hovering. Thank you Edwardo for being so gracious to us.


  • Engine No. 9

  • Parkshore Grill

    Review from Tripadvisor: loubriel
    Certainly, one of the best restaurants at Saint Pete. Beautiful and clean venue. Menu with alternatives for all tastes. Excellent pork chops, mignion, risotto and lobster pasta. All perfectly cooked and presented. Very good wine list. Fast, elegant and nice service. What else? Apple cobbler and creme brûlée.
