We go to St Pete's Beach every weekend and Bongos is a weekly visit to chill, have a refreshing drink and lunch while listening to great music and taking in paradise. No shoes, no shirt, no problem...very friendly staff, great food quality and the atmosphere is great for families couples and or just a drink to chill with new friends.

This is a great little restaurant on St. Pete Beach. Tables and umbrellas located right on the beach, with good live music for your enjoyment. The service was excellent, prices were appropriate and the food was fresh. I had the fish tacos, but will go back for the Fish Sandwich. Great place. Give it a shot.

TIP: the posted hours of the bar are until 2am, but table-side service ends at 11pm; after that you walk up to the bar for your drinks. We visited this place twice-- once for a quick, early dinner and on another late-night for drinks with friends. Our dinner-time waitress was friendly and attentive; our food arrived fairly soon after our... More

I have lived and visited the St. Pete Beach area for decades, but only JUST found Bongos! It is now our favorite place. Toes in the sand and drinks on the table. Watch sunset with a free "sunset shot" and enjoy the ambiance of a lantern on your table when things start to darken. The food is outstanding and the... More

Don't expect great food here. It's the basic burger joint. Had fish tacos and potato salad it was decent. Was there with six people on a weeknight no problem getting a seat, live music. Was fun afterwards to stroll down to the beach a few steps away and enjoy the scenery. Beautiful night by the water.

We stayed at the Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort and ate at Bongos twice despite the mixed reviews. Honestly, it was out of utter convenience and I regret both times. The menu is the same for lunch and dinner. The prices are too high for food like burgers, pasta, and tacos. We spent over $100 for 2 kids and 2 adults.... More

We went down to the Bistro every night. They had live music and the wait staff was really good. We had dessert and drinks which exceeded our expectations.
