My family and I (Philadelphia Chowhounds) will be visiting St. Petersburg Beach for the first time, during mid-March, for a period of eight days. I have never been to the area and know nothing about dining there. We will have access to a car. Our intent is to explore the area from St. Petersburg Beach to Clearwater up to Tarpon Springs and are hoping to find some great dining along the way. We enjoy all types of food especially local cuisine. Can fellow Chowhounds suggest places worthy of a Chowhound visit in the areas mentioned?
Thanks in advance.
