Bongos has an exceptional staff, delicious food for a great price, and a great environment. The live music and full bar make it a perfect holiday/vacation spot. In fact, we love Bongos & The Grand Plaza so much that my daughter is getting married at the hotel and having their rehearsal dinner at Bongos. Great!

From the minute we arrived @ Bongos, the bartender Jason made us feel right at home!! I described what sort of drink I wanted to drink & he came back w the perfect cocktail! He said it didn't have a name so.... since Jason already has a drink on the menu named after him maybe let's call it a JaLor!... More

The restaurant is located on the beach with a great view of the ocean. We ordered the bruschetta as an appetizer, which was good. The fish tacos were awesome - very lightly breaded and not deep fried. My husband had a steak and gorgonzola pizza with a balsamic reduction sauce. He loved it. The sun was setting while we ate...

This place has a great location and the frozen drinks are good. We had dinner at sunset and it was beautiful. Service was also really good. The food was good, but nothing special. We felt it was very overpriced for what we received. We had a sandwich, fried shrimp, kids mac n' cheese and a kids burger. We also had... More

If you want to just kick back and have drinks on the beach this is a good little place. The frozen drinks are top notch, the service is good and the location is on the beach. We didn't eat there but a lot of the people we saw were eating. They are open until 3am so it's good for late... More

If you are like my wife and I and are always looking for a place to eat that is as close to the beach as possible, this is the place for you! You will be sitting right on the beach sand. Very good service and broad choices of menu selections and drinks. As would be expected, the atmosphere is casual.... More

The restaurant is located at St Pete Beach and you look at this beautiful beach at the Gulf of Mexico while you wine and dine. I recommend the fish tacos and the Italian panini.

Live entertainment, good drinks and surprisingly good food. Fish tacos were super and the Seafood trio appetizer a real value. Huge shrimp, mango salsa scallops and fish spread with crispy breadsticks. Cold beer on tap.
