    Is it the best hamburger around? Eh. But El Cap is the same as it’s always been, beef ground on the premises and Rays posters and baseball memorabilia lining the walls. In recent years, wings and Philly cheesesteaks have been added to the short lineup of old-timey sammies (liverwurst, anyone?). Veteran Cappers insist the burger size has dwindled somewhat (thus, the double is de rigueur), but it’s still adored as the place to watch the game and down some of the cheapest beers around.

  • Fourth Street Shrimp Store

    Fourth Street Garden District: 1006 Fourth St. N, St. Petersburg, 33707

    One of St. Pete's longest-running restaurants, this casual seafood spot is housed in a former laundromat. With its colorful murals outside and its St. Pete kitsch inside, you'll get the real flavor of Florida when you dine here. Food is mostly fried, broiled or steamed, and there's plenty of it. If you start with a cup of their infamous "Moon Over My Clammy" chowder, be sure to split it. It's very filling. In the spring or fall, there's outdoor seating -- although that view of Fourth Street is anything but tropical. Still, it's a good place to go for a quick bite of seafood. There's a fish case up front, too, in case you just want to get some to go and cook it yourself.

    In the space that used to be Limey’s, owners Robin and Jack King have created a comfortable, good-times gathering place that even diehard Limey's fans can embrace. The Kings repainted, cleaned up the bar, added a south and north patio (the latter with a cozy fire pit), but the bigger changes have come in the kitchen. The fish and chips seem to be the last holdout from Limey's days, much of the old menu supplanted with sophisticated dishes like shortrib eggrolls, seared diver scallops paired with nuggets of crisp bacon brittle or a lamb burger with feta and fragrant cumin aioli.

    This long-time St. Pete gathering spot was one of the few places you could grab a bite and a brew in the sleepy town back in the early '80s when it first opened. Now 25+, it still draws a crowd most nights -- business types getting off work, families after Little League and some of St. Pete's most recognizable faces (former and current mayors like to network there).

    The smallish, raised bar area itself is merely a stop on the way to a table, save for some hardy souls who make leaning against its red rail an art form as they drink and gab the night away. The food is standard bar fare, but sometimes with a twist (wild rice is one of the sides).

    The joint's full moon party each month is worth checking out every once in a while. And get in line for brunch: This neighborhood favorite serves most of its menu, from burgers to grouper dinners, plus pancakes, omelets, skillets and poached eggs five ways, from Benedict to tenderloin, for a full-bore Sunday banquet.
