Sugary-white sand, dolphins frolicking just off shore and eight major barrier islands make St. Pete Beach a postcard-perfect seaside destination. Situated on a peninsula off Florida's west coast, it balances its oceanfront charms with top-notch art museums, including the largest collection of Salvador Dali paintings outside of Spain. Kayak through the calm waters, take a ferry to nearby Caladesi Island State Park to experience the state's wild beauty or stroll the rapidly gentrifying downtown for one-of-a-kind cafes.

Tucked away at the end of the Grand Palm Colonnade at Island Grand, Palm Court Italian Grill offers an intimate dining experience with your favorite culinary creations from the Mediterranean. Enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner indoors or under the stars on the patio as you savor creamy pastas and the seafood selections that range from fried calamari to fresh grouper. Complement your meal with an extensive selection of fine wines available by the glass, letting you match each course with pairings recommended by your gracious server.
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 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.

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.

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.

We went to Chill for dinner with another couple and had a great experience. Our server was friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable. It was wine Wednesday where selected bottles of wine were half price which was a bonus for us. we had two orders of spaghetti, a burger, and shrimp. All were top notch. They also had a live band that was playing dinner music which added to the evening.

Stopped in to check out 1200'. I was quite impressed with how quaint the atmosphere was inside. Even though the seating is limited, the staff was great and food comes straight from the grill as if in your own backyard!
Mallory behind the bar is awesome! Very knowledgeable on wine selections in pairing it with food but also to your liking.
If you're in the food for a grilled dinner, this is a great place to dine!

Walking into this quaint restaurant the decor was fun and artistic. The staff was incredibly friendly. I ordered the special, eggs, potatoes, vegetables and cheese in a pan. It was delicious. Waffles and pancakes had fresh blueberries, portion sizes were large and filling. Would definitely get breakfast here again.

Absolutely one of the best for Italian food. Been going there for the past 2 yrs when we're in St Pete for 2 months. My favorite is the bologenese sauce with rigatoni and my husband loves the lasagna. Pizza here is just ok. Friendly wait service and appears to be where locals go. Don't miss this place. Meals come with a salad. Prices are very reasonable.

Located directly on the beach at the Beachcomber Beach Hotel! Featuring two live bands 365 days of the year! Food is served daily, with a full menu from 11AM-11PM. Relax on the open air deck while enjoying a gorgeous view of the white sandy beach and the sparkling Gulf of Mexico.
Had a great lunch here....easy walk from Guy Harvey Outpost. Menu is good, really nice to sit outside and watch the beach, great music on a Sunday afternoon. Food was delicious but the service was very very slow. Maybe it's always like this because the restaurant was very very busy but our lunch took almost 2 hours and that's a long time when you want to get back to the beach!

We asked our friendly hotel clerk who has the best seafood on the beach and he promptly replied “Madfish“. He was right. The ambiance is a clean modern-retro style diner and everybody is incredibly friendly. The seafood is absolutely amazing. My wife is a vegetarian, eats fish once in awhile. The chef made her blackened red snapper, loved it. Great wine selection The waitstaff, manager and owner all came and talked with us, very causal, like old friends. It was a great dining experience all around. I would highly recommend it.
