The Best St Pete Beach Restaurants


As their name insinuates, Snapper’s Sea Grill is known for their world-class seafood entrees. This St Pete staple is just a short stroll from beautiful Upham Beach Park and Caprice Resort, and it’s the perfect middle ground between fine dining and a playful beach bar. The stuffed grouper, wasabi-crusted tuna, and glazed salmon are all incredibly delicious. And the plate presentation by their talented chefs, meanwhile, is vibrant and visually striking. Because a local angler owns this sea grill, the seafood is unquestionably fresh. Favorite entrees: stuffed Gulf grouper, risotto oceana, and Caribbean lobster tails.

Toasted Monkey Beach Bar

Oftentimes, our guests are in the mood for a signature cocktail and beach grub inside a laid-back shanty after a full day of water activities and sunbathing. The Toasted Monkey Beach Bar is one of the only waterfront restaurants along Gulf Boulevard, and they just so happen to serve some of the yummiest fish tacos, half-pound burgers, and “beach bowls” in the Tampa area. Patrons are encouraged to gather for a game of beach volleyball in the warm sand following a tasty lunch or dinner. Or perhaps your group prefers to sip on fruity cocktails and jive to live music. Favorite entrees: fiesta bowl, shrimp scampi, and blackened mahi-mahi.

Sola Bistro & Wine Bar

Sola Bistro & Wine Bar is, without a doubt, one of the best St Pete Beach restaurants within walking distance of Caprice Resort. This upscale wine bar mainly attracts couples and honeymooners, but families and groups are always welcome! Despite offering the best steak, pasta, and bottled wine in St Pete Beach, Sola’s prices don’t break the bank. While Sola is often labeled as an Italian restaurant, their menu is inspired by classic Mediterranean and American fusion cooking techniques. Favorite entrees: grouper Mykonos, eight-ounce filet mignon, and cast-iron chicken.
