You can't get this everywhere!! Dinner on St. Pete Beach, watching the sun go down on another beautiful Florida day - Ahhhh! The view is the main attraction here! We did enjoy the food too! We had Fish Taco's and Burgers - both portions were good, served hot and quickly. We also had a nice appetizer that included fish dip,... More

Fun atmosphere, great food, and beautiful view what more could you ask for? The staff was polite and service was great. Live music was fun and added to the atmosphere! The bar was reasonably priced and great selection.

The updating has greatly improved the beach bar/restaurant. Had a great experience with the 'back bar' and bartender. We were here 2 1/2 years ago and it was quaint but now it is cozy. Great place to gather at sunset.

We had the Fish and Chips and the Fish Tacos. Both were great! They had good drinks also. The Sea Scallop appetizer was delicious!

Bongos was wonderful. The service and food were both outstanding. It was great having such a fantastic place to eat right on the beach.

Only issue we had was with a large party, they had to split up the orders for some odd reason. Before this was done we were assured all the food would arrive at the same time... unfortunately the kids arrived first and the adults 20 minutes later. This meant kids were itching to go before the adults even got to... More

This is a nice casual sit at a table in the sand restaurant. It is exactly what one would expect a beach grill to be. great food, cold drinks and, if you're there at the right time, spectacualr sunsets.

The big attraction in that you get to eat in the sand on the beach if you would like. Food was very average. They had a singer , who wasn't bad, but I would rather eat in peace . They had an area with couches and torches were you could lounge and drink. That would probably be a better idea... More

The atmosphere of this place was by far the best on the beach. The couches placed throughout for lounging, the tables and lanterns on them, and the fountains and strung up lights made for a romantic setting. The music was awesome as well. However we did not eat here because the food looked more commercial then what we were looking... More

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.
