Exhausted from a busy work week and a very early Kansas flight, we needed a pick me up. Got it at Bongos. Fun place, right on the beach, relaxing, very cold beer and delicious fish dip for an appetizer. Sooo comfy and very beachy. You can see, hear and feel the the surroundings of this beautiful St. Pete Beach while... More

We had played lacrosse all day and were looking for a fun relaxing place on the beach. We found it with Bongos! We enjoyed good food, good drinks, fun atmosphere with the band, and enjoyed our feet in the sand.

This was the first stop on our trip. Ended up staying for about 4 hours. Great view of the Gulf. Food was decent. Always had live music while we were there. Drinks were cold. Ended up stopping here every day that we were in St Pete Beach.

I was with a party of ten people and there were problems with the service and some issues with the food but overall I liked the place and wanted to go back and give it another try. The restaurant itself is really next to the pool of the hotel. The easiest way to get to the parking lot was actually... More

Awesome spot to stop by either during the day or in the evening, tables are either on wooden floor or even in sandy beach. There are lots of gas heaters for cold evenings, and live music. Reasonable choice of drinks and food. We tried some cocktails and appetizers, all was good. Quick and professional service.

This is a fun beach bar literally on the beach. The view is beautiful, the service is great! There is good quality, live entertainment in the afternoon and evening. It is fun for lunch, the free sunset shooter and for gathering for a quick dinner or relaxing drink. The best part is the food is not the typical beach bar... More

Looking for a casual dining experience while watching the sunset, this is an ideal spot on the beach! Blackened fish tacos were very good. Fruity beach cocktail wasn't as much bang for the buck as I would have expected, but the atmosphere made up for it. Loved the music and the staff was top-notch!
