"The Restaurant Oscars of St. Pete!"


Welcome to the St. Petersburg Foodies Restaurant Awards 2020



This is when St. Petersburg Foodies gives the power to the palates and tummies of the locals that live here in St. Petersburg, Florida.

All year, we write restaurant reviews, recommendations, and top 10 lists—where we tell you which restaurants to eat at. Now it’s your turn to pick the best restaurants by voting in the “People’s Choice” polling for the 1st Annual St. Petersburg Foodies Restaurant Awards.

For the first year, we are keeping it simple with just 15 of the most common categories, so every type of restaurant will not be represented. We think when there are too many awards, with way too many categories, that it becomes overwhelming, and nearly incomprehensible.

You will need to register and verify your email address to vote. If you’re already registered, login here.

Voting will take place March 9 – 19, 2020.

The winners will be announced at the live awards ceremony April 26, 2020.

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, forced closings of businesses, and ban on events with more than 10 people, the red carpet awards ceremony is suspended for now. We hope to have it rescheduled for a future date.



The St. Petersburg Foodies Restaurant Awards are Unique


It is the St. Petersburg area only. (Gulfport and St. Pete Beach are included.)

It is succinct. There are not a myriad of categories with made-up silly awards so everybody gets a prize.

It is Ad-free. There are no advertisements on the awards site. Especially not ones saying “vote for us” from nominated restaurants.

It is non-biased. St. Petersburg Foodies ownership and staff are excluded from voting.

It is edited for accuracy. Nominations with misspellings, or submitted in the wrong category are fixed.


The St. Petersburg Foodies Restaurant Awards would not be possible without our sponsors.
