We met as a family group of 20 plus people and were quickly accommodated. The food was good, the drinks great and the live music wonderful! A great place to spend the evening, relaxing and enjoying the evening breeze and music.

After we went jet skiing for 2 hours at Woody's we were famished and very thirsty! We filled our stomachs and quenched our thirst here at the Bamboo Beach Bar and Grill. The beer was cold and the food was delicious! The live entertainment was wonderful as well. The service was fast and friendly. We just moved to the area... More

We absolutely loved this place. We probably wouldn't have stopped in but we had purchased a coupon online and I'm so glad we did. All the food we got was great! And the prices were extremely reasonable compared to everything else in the area. Cheyenne was a great waiter and very friendly. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting... More

The Bamboo is getting the reputation that it is The Place to meet and have fun. The entertainment for the most part is great. The servers are friendly and remember faces. The food is great and moderately priced. They have drink specials daily. I think it is the best bar and returant in John's Pass. See you there.

As I have read some reviews, not for kids; no it's not. Entertainment daily, and for adults. Good prices for the menu items. Much, much better than the previous owners. A better menu food-wise. Always had attentive wait-staff. So, if you're in a hurry, find another place. This is for those that want to linger, enjoy the atmosphere and the... More

This is like a tiki bar in John's Pass. Every time we walked by during our 3 day stay there was always live music. Our last evening we stopped for a drink. A lively place to hang out. We did not try the food here. But the drinks were cold, the music entertaining and the people watching fun.

Instead of eating at one of the expensive touristy restaurants on the boardwalk, seek out this little gem on the parking cul-du-sac on the northern end. Great blackened fish tacos and greek wraps. Big basket of fries for $4.00 and get a tropical bucket drink to wash it down. Nice staff and great food. Live music in the beer garden.... More
