Fish tacos

This is a pretty good place to eat when in John's pass. There fish tacos are very good and the atmosphere is good and the prices are reasonable. What I don't like is that unlike New York and New Jersey people are allowed to smoke here since it is outdoors and the smokers don't care if you have... read more

The food was not good quality at all and this was surprising because the reviews and recommendations were good. The atmosphere was fun and drinks were okay but that was it. I would compare the food to what my kids have for school lunch or maybe what you would get at a buffet. I have had lots of bar food... More

My friend and I wanted to have a bite to eat and a few drinks in an outside location on a Sunny weekday afternoon. We took a seat under a grass umbrella. We took a few minutes to review the menu. We decided to start with a pitcher of sangria. The place was quite empty. Our server was so polite... More

We always stop and have drinks at the Bamboo Beach Bar on our way to/from John's Pass. I only rated "average" because we haven't eaten here. The wait staff is nice and hustles. There is frequently live music.

Great food, try the Seafood Combo for sharing. Very relaxed an casual, my niece lived the Pulled Pork. Drinks are good too, we enjoyed several Frozen Margaritas at $8 each. Live music on the Sunday night, rock on the Monday. Both an indoor and outdoor seating area. Toilets leave a bit to be desired but after a few Margaritas you... More

My friend and I went there after attending Madeira Beach festivities. I was so surprised when I looked at the menu because there were several options for not deep fried food! I get so tired of not being able to eat in beach restaurants because of that. I had a blackened chicken sandwich with coleslaw and it was very good.... More

We visited this restaurant twice and on both occasions we were very happy with the food and service we received. This restaurant provides entertainment at night whilst you are eating, this provided a good atmosphere. The portions of food are very good with the prices reasonable for good quality food. I would recommend to anyone who is visiting this area... More

Food was great and the portions were a good size. Has a very laid back relaxing atmosphere. The locals were having fun with the Karaoke. There is daily live entertainment. The eggplant fries were very good. I had the seafood combo basket and for $14.99 you get a lot of food! Don't go here looking for a fancy meal. It... More

The food is just okay, and slightly overpriced in my opinion. But, if you're looking for a place to enjoy a drink and listen to live music, this place is cool. Servers are just okay.
