Staying at Alden Suites you have already made the wise choice of being comfortable, taken care of and you’ll still have a vacation budget to indulge. We want to make sure you enjoy whichever occasion you’re celebrating with us, and that you eat well! We’d love to share some of our favorite restaurants for your special dinner out and they are all within a mile of Alden Suites! Alden Suites is conveniently located on the beach with lots of choices for shopping, dining out and entertainment, but if you’re looking for something a little more special, we’ve got you covered! If you’re finding it hard to celebrate a special meal that doesn’t feel like you fell into a tourist trap with a menu that’s mostly fried, we suggest these 4 amazing restaurants to indulge and escape from the ordinary.
Right across the street from the Alden is a wonderfully romantic restaurant called Snappers. The romantic ambiance and personalized service at Snappers set the scene for a truly special meal. Snappers is famed for their stuffed grouper, dry aged steaks, and blue tuna appetizer, and we’re totally addicted to their hand-cut fried zucchini sticks! Don’t forget to try their house-made desserts, the perfect accompaniment to a delicious celebration!
Located right across the street from the Alden, Skidder’s is a bit more casual than our other picks, but they offer a full bar and exceptional personal service. Pick a table on the new side patio or the front garden for a romantic meal. Every dish is incredible – souvlaki, burgers, seafood, pizza, even the house wine. The lamb shanks are something else, and don’t miss out on a shot of their amazing ouzo!
If the way to your love’s heart is steak, Seared 1200 Chophouse holds the key. Set in a refurbished 1940’s home along the intercoastal waterway just across the street from the Alden, 1200 Chophouse elevates steak to an art form, with incredible side dishes and a wine list to match. The flavor combinations and presentation will have you visually stimulated while you savor every bite! The truffle fries with gouda dipping sauce and seared duck breast are not to be missed. .
Sola’s warm, quaint and comfortable atmosphere is cozy and intimate, perfect for a romantic evening out. The creative and passionately prepared dishes and attentive service offer a first-class dining experience. Ranging from unique dishes for the area like rabbit and venison and more traditional meals including pork belly and grouper, the menu offers a wide variety for everyone to enjoy. Romantic setting, amazing wine selection, and live music make for the perfect date night or celebration dinner, but we highly recommend you do NOT skip dessert here! Their famous honeycomb cake is a dish no one should leave St. Pete Beach without trying!
We hope you have a fabulous night out and indulge in a fine dining experience to complete your special stay with us. It’s great to live the no shoes, no shirt, no problem lifestyle, but if you’re looking to snazz it up a bit, all these phenomenal restaurants are all less than a mile away! It’s your vacation, why not enjoy the best of both worlds? Bon Appétit!
