any good restaurants within walking distance of 5050 ulmerton rd. clearwater-st petersburg fl?

I'm staying at the residence inn at clearwater-st petersburg and would prefer to walk to a restaurant so I can enjoy some cocktails with no worry (and I'd love a local yummy spot if one exists around there with a liquor licence.) Any ideas?

  1. You will be 1 mile away from Cafe Ponte, which is probably my favorite restaurant in Tampa Bay. Ulmerton is a very busy road, so you may want to take a look at the traffic before making up your mind about walking. There is also a Greek restaurant called Acropolis very close to Cafe Ponte, but I haven't been there in a few years.

    13505 Icot Blvd. Suite 214, Clearwater, FL 33760

    1. The area that you will be in is not an area to consider walking in after dark, especially while inebriated. Please consider taking a cab which will broaden your area considerably and your safety.

        I second this. Ulmerton + pedestrians = not a good combo. Cafe Ponte is the best you can do in the area. I'd take a cab there and have a drink and an app or two.

      2. Pinellas County in general is not safe for pedestrians or bicycle riders. I wouldn't want to walk on Ulmerton after dark.
