Bongos is located at the Grand Plaza Hotel. It is right on the beach next to the pool deck. They have live music all day. It is fun, but just a typical hotel beach bar.

The bar is right on the beach. Great to have a drink while digging your toes in the sand. There is a musician playing all the time. Good music. The service was sometimes a little slow, even when it wasn't busy.

Great beachfront restaurant Live music. Great food. Nice décor. Only complaint I have is (it was a hot day ) and when we were asked if we wanted bottled water they acted like it was the only water they had ( They charge me $6 for two water bottles - they weren't even brand name water... it was hotel water)....

My family ate at Bongo's last week during our stay on St. Pete Beach, the service, the food (pub-style fare), the location were all awesome...with our toes in the sand we watched a beautiful sunset all while listening to a grea local singer...nothing to complain about! We'll be back!
