Same food as Spinners, but that is good!

I wouldn't have believed it, but I understand it....because it's the same hotel, but Bongos shares the same menu as their very nice Spinners restaurant atop their hotel. So the food is GREAT! I enjoyed sitting directly on the beach with feet in the sand at my table....there are others that... read more

Food was good but I think what really sold us was that our waiters were very professional and on point and the atmosphere. The view is overlooking the Gulf and you're seated on the beach, literally chairs in sand. The bar had a great musician with a caribbean feel. Another great thing was watching the beach weddings. There were two... More

Great atmosphere along the beach with options to sit in the shade or sun, in the sand or not, or at the bar. We love no sand with shade and we get to listen to the waterfalls next to our table and still enjoy the beach view. The menu has options for anyone's pallet.

This bar has a great view and good food and drinks for a reasonable price. The atmosphere is the best part and definitely a must to go at sunset!

We stopped there on the way back from dinner while walking the beach. We sat at the overflow bar and wow what service. Michael was the bartender and he was friendly and fun. We watched him keep up with 4 servers and the bar. He casually chatted with us about the area and places to go and see. We had... More

Sat beach side with live music and a beautiful view. Food was adequate so if it weren't for sticking your toes in the sand this is a "ok" place. On the other hand if I was there for the day to listen to the music and have lots of drinks and have some fun, this might be the place.

It's a neat place to sit at a table with sand under your feet and watch the sunset. Pricey, but comparable for tourist places. The food was pretty good. Free little shots at sunset. The only thing that I didn't like was during one of the many beach weddings, the bar was not allowed to run the blender for the... More
