Roam around the pier’s 26 acres of waterfront green space, and you’re sure to work up an appetite. Happily, St. Pete Pier has no shortage of dining options, with everything from the elegant Teak restaurant to a snack bar and ice cream stand (with plenty in between). Soak up gorgeous views of the bay and the St. Pete city skyline while you enjoy a memorable dining experience. Check out great dining near the brand new community The Addison Skyway Marina.
Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille menu at this Caribbean-themed sports bar focuses on fresh, local seafood. Pull up a seat at the bar and revel in the fresh breezes wafting in the wide-open garage doors or choose a seat outside – grab a table on the covered deck or head to the patio overlooking the marina. In the mood for a grouper sandwich? Go for Doc Ford’s Original Lime Panko Crusted Fish Sandwich served on a fresh-baked roll, topped with house slaw and spicy remoulade. The Captiva crab cakes and the bar’s signature mojitos are popular choices, too. This is the latest in a small group of restaurants owned by mystery writer Randy Wayne White and named for the main character in his novels, which are set in coastal southwest Florida. Reservations are strongly encouraged on the weekend.
