I have visited the Undertow several times. It seems that to visit mid week in the evening is far different from visiting on a weekend. I will give it another weekend try, but not mid week unless I want to feel unattended, neglected, etc. Weekends are really where this place comes alive. It was disappointing that they no longer served... More

I've been here before and loved it... This past weekend, we went back and it was horrible! There were 4 girls behind the bar and they were more interested in fixing their hair and talking than serving their patrons. We needed smoke signals to get a drink. I'm very disappointed.

It was OK. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there though. We went because it was within walking distance of our condo. We had a hard time getting a bartender's attention to order in the first place and never could get her attention for a refill so we moved on. Not the cleanest of places.

Went there for a long time. Most recent trip I had a waitress whose main worry in life was that that she was leaving work in 20 minutes and that I had to stay near her in order to have a tab. She then proceeded to charge me $6 for a bud light. But this is only the latest example.... More

Great place , friendly bartenders, unique river flowing bar top, a must visit location on St. Pete beach. We visit often and love the place.

If you are looking for bartenders that rush to serve you and really good food don't come here. But the location and set up of this bar make up for it. The outdoor area is perfect with an upstairs balcony to soak up the sun. The bar leads right out to the ocean so you can hang out and go... More

Visited this bar with two other couples on our annual trip to St. Pete beach. Bartender would not even wait on us cause we weren't single guys looking at her 12 year old little boy figure! She basically told us the bar behind us served beer! We will never return!

I discovered this place when getting some new glasses at Visionworks in Tyronne, when the sales lady there recommended it to me as somewhere different to go on St Pete's Beach (I never knew it existed). It's a chilled out place right by St Pete's Beach and went with friends one weekday lunchtime. We ordered a bucket of Buds and... More

We vacation at St Pete Beach every May for the past 7 years and have always wanted to stop in and check this place out. Well, I dont need to go back here! Although we did have a good time playing pool you really have to watch the bartenders. We were short changed twice and by two different girls. Certainly... More

Don't go here if you don't like eclectic, funky atmosphere. Old hotel converted into a beach bar. No riff raff here. Bartenders wear cool bathing suits and bar has water running through it! Employees give great service. Kitchen is closed right now but good food can be ordered and delivered from their sister restaurant. Volleyball and fun beach games to... More
