On the beach dining!!

Sandbar Bill's is on the beach at the Bonaire Hotel. Locals state they have the best burgers around! I didn't notice a sign from the street; however, it was right across the street from my resort . Of course, you could access it from the beach too. Jennifer took my order at the Tiki Bar and... read more

Nothing fancy, but it is in the heart of St Pete's Beach on right on the main beach. The staff could have been nicer, since we had to go up to the bar to order everything when we needed something, but the burgers were wonderful, the view incredible and the visitors were fun to chat with.

After reading the glowing reviews here (best hamburger ever, etc) we had to try this place. Yes, it is right on the beach-steps from the water. Yes, the view is great and sunsets can be magnificent. BUT......"best hamburger ever"? Hardly. Good? Yes. Best? No way.

Have been going here for years. It's basically a beach shack, located on the premises of the Bon Aire Hotel. We always walk there in our swimsuits. Good variety of fun drinks and a few beers on tap. Love their food - burgers and the pineapple teriaki chicken sandwich are a good bet! Service can be spotty; if you don't... More

We just wanted to do a quick trip over to St. Pete and get a burger and a couple of drinks. We loved this place! It was a holiday weekend, so it was busy, but the servers were terrific, hamburgers very, very good (and big). We were all adults, but saw lots of kids eating ice cream, burgers, etc. so... More

Sandbar Bills is so good and kid friendly. It's right on the beach so you can enjoy the great atmosphere there. Our favorite bartender is Jackie and we always order their burgers. They also have wraps, nachos and a lot of drinks!! We highly recommend it!!!

Lively bar directly on the beach, very accommodating service (bartender is great and finds time to have some chat with every guest). Cocktails which we tasted were actually best of all we have had during our Florida trip. Though it's bar, atmosphere and setting is family friendly.
