Staying in St Petes, looking for top chow places to eat at ?

We will have kids in tow so we are not looking for fine dining but not fastfood chain restaurants. We like good people watching atmosphere so patios are nice. We will be looking for dinner requests and happy hour places are good too.

We will have a kitchen at our hotel so even a take out lunch one day would be great .

    1. We visited a few months ago, went to Agave for mexican on a chowhound recommendation. So good, we went two days in a row! (casual, the dining area is small and feels homey. friendly service) Reasonably priced, with good margaritas. Would have driven right by it if it weren't for fellow chowhounders. If you go, check out the mole sauce, it's got a kick!

        I read about the Agave on Trip Advisor.. Sounded familiar as i thought there was in San Diego as well but probably not the same place.. We LOVE mexican.

        Staying at the Sirata Beach resort.

      2. Agave is not to be missed. Sea Critters on Pass-A-Grille has outstanding smoked fish spread and good local seafood. You might also search the board for other recommendations. Enjoy your trip!

          I had searched the board but since Florida is all one I didnt see much in the way of St Petes area after pages of looking. So i posted this one.

            Try searching for St. Petersburg. You'll find lots of stuff. No such thing as St. Petes.

              thanks so much for taking the time to write the above.. when you say up do you mean this is the minimum price on a menu or a happy hour item?
