The Historic Peninsula Inn a Review
Where to Eat in Gulfport
For such a small town, Gulfport is a gourmet dining delight. With nearly 20 places to eat within a 1 mile walking radius, there is no shortage of options.
We had the pleasure of talking to the chef at Blackfin Blue Cafe, who’s been at the restaurant since he was 14 and can’t see working in a better community than Gulfport. Food there was amazing too!
We also enjoyed some flaming cheese at Neptune Grille, one of the few authentic greek restaurants you’ll find outside of Tarpon Springs.
I’ve enjoyed chocolate martini’s and exquisite Italian at Pia’s Trattoria.
Little Tommie’s Tiki served up fantastic fish and chips, local craft brews and seaside views.
Isabelle’s at The Peninsula Inn serves up a killer breakfast brunch on Sundays, along with live music and gourmet dining throughout the week.
We did not have a bad meal when we were in Gulfport. And that’s just a small sampling of where we ate. For a complete listing of restaurants, click here.
What to do in Gulfport
Gulfport, though she be small, is mighty! There are a number of events going on at least twice a month including:
- Art Walk – First Fridays and Third Saturdays
- Ballroom and Swing dancing at the Gulfport Casino Ballroom
- Geckofest – a see it to believe it parade, costume contest, live music and street vendors celebrating the town mascot, the Gecko.
For more on events in Gulfport, Visit Gulfport Florida.com. Plus you’ll find live, laid back music almost any night of the week at a number of the restaurants. You can also stroll through any number of the art shops to find a unique treasure to take home.
If you venture out, St. Petersburg is also a short drive away. Click here for my recommendations in the Grand Central District in St. Pete, or visit the Dali Museum. You can also visit 5 of Tampa Bay’s area attractions, including Clearwater Marine Aquarium for only $99 too.
