ISO restaurants near Postcard Inn


We are staying for just one night at the Postcard Inn on Tuesday and are looking for the best place for breakfast, lunch and then somewhere else for dinner.

Definitely in search of awesome seafood - stone crab and crab cakes, and maybe some mexican from a shack? But open to anything, price is not a concern.

Hopefully not too much to ask.

We will not have a car, so walkable if possible.

If you could only eat at three spots where would you go.

  1. Well, you have a good BBQ restaurant right there at the Postcard Inn. It is called the Wildwood BBQ & Grill. Their brisket is very good as are their ribs. Ask for the brisket from the fatty end as you will a lot more flavor.

    1. Agave will be the best Mexican you can find on St. Pete Beach. 6400 Gulf Blvd. Peg's Pizza Cantina is near by in Gulf Port and would be a second option, they are Mexican infused Tex Mex, but done very well with a great selection of Draft Beer. The only problem is that it is too far to walk, so you'd need to grab a taxi. Downtown Gulf Port is cute too.

      Since you are in Tampa you should try a Cuban sandwich as it's something we are known for at Bella Habana, which is near your hotel on 5905 Gulf Blvd.

      Lastly, I have two seafood picks. First get a taxi to go to Ted Peter's Smoked Fish. It is a local institution and has to die for fish and potato salad. It is very casual and informal and has a classic Florida vibe to it. Secondly, for a nicer upscale dinner out Try MadFish which is close to your hotel. Very good and creative menu there. Don't be fooled by the diner appearance on the outside, it is upscale and fancy in.
