Great Beach Food/Bar

We have been here 3 times now. Breakfast is great, cheap and the service is great. As the name implies they do have friendly service. We will be back for the all you can eat dinner specials which are different each day. The drinks are strong and the food is good, what more can you ask for..

Friendly Tavern is one of our regular stops when we're in the area. The food is consistently good, with a different all-you-can-eat special every day. Our service has always been good. Great breakfast as well, and you can't beat the Bloody Mary special! Young, old, early or late - Friendly's is a great place to check out for a decent... More

My husband and I were doing some field work for a neighboring city recently one afternoon. We decided we would stop in for a cold drink and decided to grab a bite. I ordered the Jack burger. It was big and very flavorful. Cooked as requested. The service was a tad slow but the staff lived up to the business... More

Breakfast ❤️ Lunch ❤️ Dinner ❤️ Ice Cold Drinks ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Let's face it kids, it's a restaurant It's a bar. A place to gather with friends and family right across the street from the Beach. I've been here plenty of times and I've LOVED it. I've also read plenty of these not so good comments left by past customers. 1.... More

The food is great! Try the specials which are all you can eat. There not on the menu but all the regulars seem to know what they are... Just ask or check out the board at front door. Also has breakfast which was really good and priced right. There is a outside tiki bar that gets a little crowded during... More

Stopped in to Friendly's for lunch. Perhaps because it was a slow week day that they only had one waitress serving both drinks and food, but that caused the service to be a bit slow. Now we sat outside on a beautiful day so the slow service wasn't a huge distraction. We both had a burger, one a bbq bacon... More

This restaurant looks like it needs a makeover. Not being stuffy...it really smelled musky and dank when we first came in. Cook was friendly and offered us a free taste of his excellent chowder. A woman was cleaning windows and doing a great job but there was only so much she could do.

The name holds true: I’ve always felt welcome at this friendly place every time I’ve returned to the St. Pete area for vacation. Though nothing particularly special here, this is just a great, comfortable place, and I always know I’m going to have a fun time with the folks I meet, especially if it’s a great karaoke night. The crowd... More

Went for Karaoke mainly, but pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Four of us and all were happy with our meal. Prime Rib (all you could eat $17.95). Surf & Turf stir fry (delicious). Mahi Mahi & Shrimp combo; I think youbget the picture. Food was all top notch!
