Located in world famous John's Pass the Bamboo is one of the sun coasts oldest bars formerly known as the "Bamboo Beer Garden". Recently renovated it now boasts a tasty menu ranging from favorites such as fish tacos, smoked fish spread to burgers & philly cheese steaks as well as new eclectic crave items such as grilled pig wings & eggplant fries. Now with a full liquor bar, frozen Tiki drinks are the best in the pass. The Bamboo is a favorite with locals as well as snowbirds who return yearly to enjoy the fun & has been voted the best outdoor patio to watch live music on the west coast of Florida. Great food, live entertainment and daily drink specials abound!

We sat down to listen to music and have dinner & drinks. Our server took our drink order (1 wine & 1 drink) and, a minute later, he looked confused and asked us to repeat our order. He then disappeared for 20 minutes. When he finally returned to our table, empty-handed, he again looked confused... read more

We had dinner one night to live music. Dinner was excellent. We went back another day just for a drink on our way back from John's Pass shopping. Great service and a lively bar/restaurant. Well priced.

Second trip to this area and made a repeat visit to the Bamboo Bar. Did not eat, just had drinks. The waitstaff was AWESOME! Shaggy was making our drinks and really made them good and strong. They had a solo act singing and playing guitar which was perfect for this crowd and atmosphere. I love how most of the bar... More

If you are @ Johns Pass, this was a good place to sit outside, listen to some live music, and have a few cocktails. Our service was the worst of our trip. App came out w our food (she did discount our bill bc of this). But I am not sure if that just because we spoke up about it.... More

Been to a few places around town, this place is the best. The people are so friendly and happy ! Staff are fantastic, especially little Alli ! After one visit, she knew our names and our usual order when we returned. Incredible! Music is good, but tends to be too loud on occasion. This place is an experience you don't... More

This was the first time we visited the Bamboo bar. It was a cool November evening so there was no one sitting in the patio section. We sat at the bar indoors and had tons of fun. The bartender Cheryl was friendly and efficient. We also sat with a few locals (Dave and Jim) and a few others and all... More
