Loved it! Can't wait to go back!

This may be the best spot on St. Pete beach to hang out. I was renting a condo up the beach and just walked down for a beer and to catch the sunset. Ended up staying for dinner and hanging out after to listen to the entertainment. Great spot to waste away

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at your restaurant while on vacation. We were having a very frustrating day in regards to hotel accommodations and Shonnie was a doll, she recommended we started with cocktails and the ahi tuna as the sun was setting and it was beautiful. You have a lovely staff, especially our server Shonnie and... More

My husband and I came here for dinner and our server Shonnie was the best!! It was as if we'd been friends forever! She was very friendly, and very attentive. We both had the fish tacos which were awesome and then Shonnie suggested your new Super Sized drinks, and I had a Tropical Sunset that was incredible! It was a... More

Service at Bongos is great. The view is perfect. Nothing better than grabbing a yummy bite to eat, an ice cold pina colada with your toes in the sand. Another great thing about Bongos and Grand Plaza, they are constantly putting money in to it to improve. Love this place!!!!

My favorite beach bar in St Pete, the only one where you can take off your sandals and have your feet in the sand. Good beach food and parking is provided at the Grand Plaza Hotel. I always order the Caesar salad with a bloody mary which is a good combination while watching the world go by.

We went to Florida on Jan14th and came back Feb 4th 2016. We love Bongo's. We sat many times just for drinks and appetizers to watch the sunsets. The food is really good, My favorite is the seafood trio. It goes really well with a drink and is very light. I also enjoyed the hamburgers, coconut shrimp, flat bread pizzas.... More

While staying at another place in St. Pete Beach, my whife and I walked down to the Bongos Beachside Bar on a couple occasions. The drinks were very good yet a little pricey. The atmosphere was perfect with a good view of the ocean and a gas fire place if you got cold.
