    Carrabba's Italian Grill.

    by Valentina777 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you've ever seen the overflowing parking lots that surround every Carrabba's, then it's probably no surprise to see that it's favorite place to eat pasta. I applaud the fact that Carrabba's is the first caina restaurant to take a step away from the heavy Italian-American dishes like spaghetti and meatballs. It offers a trendy taste of lighter pasta dishes.
    Carrabba's Italian Grill was founded in Houston by Johnny Carrabba and Damian Mandola in December of 1986. Both Johnny and Damian have extensive restaurant experience and belong to one of Houston's most successful restaurant families. Many of the recipes on our menu are those of Damian's mother Grace and sister Rose. Damian has preserved the Italian authenticity of Carrabba's food by traveling the world in search of unique Italian dishes and by taking numerous trips to his grandparents' native Italy.

    Bonefish Grill - St Pete & Bel Aire Bluffs

    by Ewingjr98 Written May 30, 2010

    Bonefish Grill is a great, upscale seafood chain owned by the company that runs Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba's Italian Grill, and Roy's. Their food is fresh, never frozen, and very healthy.

    We started with drinks, though I was a bit disappointed with their brief list of bottled beers. Then came the staple Italian-style bread with olive oil and herbs. For dinner I decided on the cedar plank-grilled Arctic charr; advertised as clean, buttery Charr, topped with fresh herb-crumb & chorizo, and wood-grilled and drizzled with a citrus beurre blanc sauce for $17.90. The food took much longer than expected, but the restaurant's apologizer came by to ask for our forgiveness. The fish was tender and very mildly flavored, but the Spanish chorizo sausage really added a different taste. We also shared key lime pie, which was not quite like the pie I had in Key West--way too sweet and bitter.

    The first Bonefish opened in St Pete in the year 2000, and it has since expanded to over 100 locations in 29 states.

  • The Casual Clam: Great food, great decor!!

    by misstina87 Updated Aug 5, 2008

    I'm originally from New England but have lived in the Tampa Bay area for about 6 years now so when I heard about a restaurant in St. Pete that was similar to local, family owned restaurants in Massachusetts/Rhode Island, I was willing to drive 2 hours just to eat lunch at the Casual Clam.

    Here are some pros and cons:

    PROS-Indoor decor. There are New England license plates hanging on the walls as well as posters of seafood. Reminds me of home.
    -Indoor vs. outdoor seating. Although I usually stay inside due to it being less crowded, the outdoor seating area is nice. If you sit indoors, they leave the door open so you can feel the wonderful breeze.
    -Food is great.
    -Price. It's really inexpensive to eat here especially considering the amount of food you get.
    -Great location. There's plenty of stores and other businesses around so if you're on vacation here, there's quite a bit to do in the surrounding area.

    CONS-Although the staff has always been friendly to my family, there have been a few times where they've forgetten us. They tend to run to the outdoor seating area more than the indoor area so if you like to sit indoors, you may not get timely service.

    Whenever my family is in the mood for some good food, we take a drive down to St. Pete simply to visit the Casual Clam. Would I recommend this restaurant? If you're a former/current New England resident, you'll be very pleased.

    Favorite Dish: I'm not a huge seafood fan so I usually get the chicken basket which comes with fries. I have to say the chicken is the best I've ever tasted in any restaurant I've been to. The rest of my family gets the seafood and they all love the taste and huge portions. The clam chowder is great too as well as the cole slaw. I recently tried the tiger shrimp and although it's a bit spicy, it's really good.

    Great restaurant spread over several levels with 3 bars, one on the top of the roof usualy with live guitar player, one with a dance floor and a quieter cocktail bar near the main entrance.
    Excellent seafood as you would expect on the Gulf coast.

    Tavern at Bayboro: Great Sandwiches and Excellent Beer on Tap!!!

    by nesba13 Written Dec 20, 2006

    This is a small place tucked in the buildings that surround the USF campus in downtown St. Petersburg. It's has a laid back atmosphere that you would expect of a place like this. You won't find a 12' video screen playing football on the weekends but they do have a small 20" tube TV mounted up high in a corner that you can request a specific game if you like...more then likely it will have to be put to a vote by everyone there to change the channel. The Tavern has excellent beers on tap! My last trip there they had Leinenkugel!! (At least its one of my favorites) Guinness is one of the normal beers you'll find there as well as a selection from the Dunedin Brewery (local brewery about an hour north of St. Pete). The Sandwiches are awesome! They have daily specials and can make any custom sandwich you want.

    Crabby Bills - St Petes Beach (Gulf Blvd): Pass on this one

    by Hexepatty Updated Oct 23, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beach Side. Fab Beach View with Picnic table Casual Ambiance meets Fried Food Disaster! Okay I admit: the fried calamari looked fresh prepared, but that's about the only thing. Everything else was either overly deep fried or just uninspired from the Smoked Fish Dip to the bland house salads to the Broiled Bay Scallops (I ordered - trying to be somewhat healthy!) to the undercooked baked potato. Just Pass! You could do better at a 7/11!

    Favorite Dish: My Favorite dish? Some of the bus boys, I guess. (Yeah - that's how BAD... Smile...)
    Server was sweet (but slow... and yet there were 25 in our party, so I won't even GO THERE!)
