Sadly, this is one of the worst restaurant meals we've ever had. The frozen drink was fine and the waitress was pleasant and doing her best. The clam chowder was edible -- a major plus here -- but not sure there were any clams in it. The bruschetta came swimming in vinegar and was basically inedible. We ordered coconut encrusted... More

The food is general bar food but, you get to sit on the beach and enjoy the sunset. What better to be served in a beautiful setting. Many weddings take place here at sunset, too.

Bongos is the bar and restaurant attached to the Grand Plaza Hotel on St. Pete beach. It is very convenient if you are staying at the hotel. Bongos serves awesome quesadillas. I ended up eating them two nights in a row. The view of the beach is awesome and the live music in the evenings is enjoyable. My stay included... More

Visited on our last evening and felt like a "date" with my husband! The atmosphere can't be beat, live music, dining at nice tables on sand, fire-heaters made it both romantic and fun. Great food too, we had scallops and crabcakes, and server was friendly and welcoming.

My husband and I took our six-year-old grandson for a five-day stay at the Hotel affiliated with Bongo's. We literally ate almost every meal at Bongo's. The food was not only excellent and reasonably-priced, but it was the service that really impressed us. Though we had several different servers throughout our visits, there were two, Matt and Tony that impressed... More
