Fodor's Expert Review Stillwaters Tavern

$$$ St. Petersburg Modern American
Equal parts happy-hour spot and go-to dinner locale, this trendy Beach Drive trattoria—from the folks who brought us Bella Brava—has something for everyone. Their take on fish-and-chips gets cheers, as does the catch of the day (whatever that might be), the falafel (served on a bed of hummus), and most of the menu's other diverse, often locally sourced options. Whether you sit at a table (recommended if it's evening and there are more than two of you) or belly up to the bar for a quick bite and a drink, the tile floors and dark wood furnishings give this place a smart, vintage feel—minus the stuffiness you'll find at some other area restaurants. If you're in the mood for a beverage, check out the imaginative cocktail list, the craft beers on tap, and the many wine offerings here. Weather permitting, outdoor seating situates you right along the strip and all of its sights and sounds. If you are driving here (or any other Beach Drive restaurant, for that matter) for dinner, take advantage of the valet service, as parking can be scant and it's oh-so easy to get a ticket.
