Pacific Counter brings all the poke goods to you in a Chipotle-style environment. Patrons first choose to “Bowl It” or “Roll It,” making their delicious meal either a traditional bowl or a sushi burrito. Then, visitors either pick from the 10 listed Counter Creations or build their own, moving down the line: base, proteins, sides, toppings, and sauces – with 6,432,189 different combinations to create and explore. Don’t forget to grab some mochi ice cream or the signature Dole Whip to top it all off! And if that wasn’t enough, the restaurant also offers a catering menu so you can take build-your-own poke to share. Best of all, ingredients rotate in daily to bring the freshest options possible to your plate.

The drink menu is equally impressive. Six juices and teas are offered daily, along with Japan and Hawaii-imported drinks, Sake Slush (pictured below), and more. All pair wonderfully with everything on the menu, making sure to leave you refreshed.

Enveloped in beach decor (“Good Vibes Only!”), the restaurant resides on the bustling 600 Central block (affectionally dubbed “the block that never sleeps” by one of the shop’s employees). Whether you’re stopping in while hanging out nearby or meeting a friend for lunch, Pacific Counter makes a great destination in Downtown St. Pete.
