What are your favorite restaurants in St Pete area?

What are your favorite seafood restaurants?

There are so many choices! I'm trying to narrow down my choices to the best.

So far, my list includes:

The Salty Rim

PJs Restaurant

Sea Hags

Bongo's Beachside Bistro

Crabby Bill's

Harry's Beach Bar

Rum Runners

What are your suggestions for lunch? (any type of food is good)

I'm thinking we might stop at Mazzaro's Italian Market and get sandwiches to take to the beach, but am open to suggestions for lunch on the way.

Since we will only have one day there, I want to plan ahead so we can enjoy some great food, with friendly service, and a nice atmosphere.

No fine dining please. We will not have the budget or clothes for that on this trip. Dinner budget would be $15-$25 per entree. Water view would be nice, but is not required.

Thanks!

Sea Critters is one of our favorites. If you are here for 1 day, forget Mazzaro's, too far out of the way. For deli sandwiches, try Publix's, Buona will also make sandwiches, or Verducci's Market.

I also am NOT a fan of Crabby Bills. If you're trying to combine good casual food, price and water view into one stop on a short trip check out Crab Daddy's upstairs open-air.

Do you like smoked fish? Ted Peters is great, cash only, closed Tuesdays, eat there or take out.

These are great suggestions. I will check them out! Thanks!

So... none of the ones on my list are worth considering?

Mad Fish is great so is Snappers - if you choose Snappers go hungry - big portions.

Sea critters or the Warf in Paas a Grill. Bongos, Willies, The reef, Crab Daddy's. All have really good seafood at a decent price. The Bon Aire has the best beach view and great burgers. Very laid back and beachie. There is nothing wrong with the ones on your list and I like them all except Crabby Bill;s.

Another vote against Crabby Bill's, although it was recently sold, still open. Not a fan of PJ's. For lunch, I would suggest Bongo's on the beach or Sea Critters.
