A favorite for beach type food and sunset. First stop for visitors to St. Pete. Try the fish tacos and artichoke/chicken flatbread. And, of course a nice cold beer (etc.). Really do love this place.

Awesome experience. We were seated right away on a busy Saturday night (Memorial Day Weekend) at a table in the sand. Service was fast, the waitress was pleasant and food was delicious! 😃

Four of us had a perfect FL beach lunch. Right on the beach, our feet and chairs in the sand, it doesn't get any better than this. The seafood trio is served in a martini glass and is delicious. Frozen drinks were great too. A+.

Three couples had a late-ish dinner here. Food was excellent. Server was new, so service not great. Atmosphere so cool. Some tables are right in the sand, others on a patio. I think there is no ndoor seating. Quite fun.

Live singer. Nice atmosphere with lounge furniture, fire pits as well as dinner table seating. Great drinks and bartenders but waitress didn't take our drink order at all, we had to go up and get our drinks ourselves every time.

Bongos is a fun little shack on the beach. Get beers, tropical drinks, sandwiches and files right on the beach. Reasonable prices, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere. Really fun!

We stopped by for a drink on a Friday afternoon after walking on the beach. We sat at a table facing the ocean that was also in the sand. There were plenty of people there with a musician playing in the background. Good beach music to get you in the feel of being on holiday. My husband and I ordered... More
