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

It is a good place to go to prime for the evening, good drink specials pool tables. It would be nice if the had more in the way of entertainment like live music, but basically it is just a bar/lounge.

I live in the area and I have been to the Tow many times. Let me tell you about the last two and final times. You can't run a tab without handing over your credit card. So I pay cash. I bought one beer and gave the barmaid a twenty dollar bill,she threw the change in her tip jar. I... More

The Undertow is awesome. Sits right on the beach. Volleyball out back. Beautiful and sweet bartenders. More craft beers than I can count. Renovated open air pool room. Food delivered from Smileys. Come enjoy a beautiful Gulf sunset at the best beach bar on SPB!

Went here fir the first time this past weekend. Great spot on the beach to sit and enjoy the views with drinks. Only bad thing is no food is served. There is an independent food stand just outside the doors that sells pizza/hotdogs. If you want more than that to eat your out of luck.

The Undertow is one of my favorite places ever! He hung out there on a girl's trip and had a fantastic time. The food is really good. The tuna sandwich and burgers are to die for, and the price is great. Watch out for the birds though. I had some fries sitting on the table and a bird flew down... More
