As it says the starters are really to die for, but if you are having a main course keep to the California burger. Location is fab with outside dining overlooking the beach. Crab cakes are great as were the scallops. Portions are large so no need to taste disappointment in the main course.

Food was really good and it is located literally right on the beach so the view is amazing. Surprisingly it was wasn't crazy hot sitting outside to eat at lunch. We had the California Burgers and loved them! Coconut shrimp was really good too.

The ambiance was exceptional. Dined on the beach with live music, partially overcast evening sky and impending rain. The whole scenario was very memorable. No complaints.

Ordered a frosty drink and settled back to listen to live entertainment. A bit crowded with the tables quite close together.

Just arrived in St. Pete's and was looking for a restaurant on the beach for lunch. This was a perfect spot, shaded tables in the sand, cold drinks and a great view of the water. The waiter was very accommodating and friendly. The food was very good very reasonable.

My sister and I enjoyed the fish tacos, actually ordered them twice on our trip. Burger was good and fries were fine. Good atmosphere and we really enjoyed the liver entertainment. Great highlight of our weekend.

Love it there. Great service and friendly staff. Awesome band on sundays!! Stayed at the hotel and visited bongos multiple times. Didn't eat much, more for drinks but enjoyed it. :)

Walked there for dinner and/or apps at sunset several nights. Love toes in sand. Food is surprisingly good- especially salads which had everything I love. I think I had the market salad with salmon! The fish spread is good! We had lovely servers a few times- I remember Delaney- delightful young lady! Bonehead named Beau caused us to leave abruptly... More
