We got married at Grand Plaza this past weekend! We ate and hung out here MANY times. Food was delish every time and service was absolutely wonderful! Kim was the greatest waitress we ever had, Beau was great too! We will be back many times!

Way to many restaurants to pick from while on St Pete Beach but this was closet and had good reviews so we gave it a try! Was pleasantly surprised at the service and accommodations they made. Needed some shade so the waitress moved a canopy over our table! Awesome! Drinks were delicious and food was great! No complaints! Will stop... More

We were searching for a great beach bar in the area and we found it. Outstanding good, incredibly friendly staff that is constantly hustling and smiling and serving generous portions of alcohol, by the way. Unbelievable sunset views, tables actually in the sand, torches, lanterns comfy couches by the fire pit and awesome entertainer to round out the night. This... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by Bongos. Often I find that restaurants that are part of a resort are over priced and serve mediocre food. Not so Bongos and their sister restaurant, Spinners. Excellent staff, fair pricing, clean and consistent. Bongos has live music daily/nightly. And the food is good! An, of course St. Pete Beach is THE place for... More

Bongos has really stepped up their game over the past year. They've done a lot of renovations and adding a lot of seating for dining. The food is good, slightly over priced for a sandwich in my opinion, but the tables are in the sand with nice umbrellas amongst the palm trees. It is nice during the day for lunch... More

This is simply an outdoor restaurant at the beach. Some of the tables are in the sand, some on raised decks. You have to seat yourself, and you might find (as we did) it requires some persistence to get staff to help with finding chairs, and getting a table set up. Location is great, on the beach next to the... More

This was our favorite place to eat while staying at the hotel. We ate here everyday of our stay, Most days there was live music around lunch time. The lunch/dinner options were all tasty and fresh. In our group, the cheeseburgers, fried fish sandwich and mozzarella sticks were all a hit! We also tried most of the flatbreads on the... More
