Right on the beach, yummy apps, & live music

We did a selection of appetizers. Tuna tartare and bruschetta were favorites. Fast service, live music, & kids were able to play right on the beach once they finished their meal. Mixed drinks were just ok. Would definitely visit again if in the area!

My wife and were in town for a weekend getaway. we were joined by my little brother and his wife. We visited the website before arriving to have an idea of what to expect. let me tell you we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu.

MANY choices, the salads are huge, good fish again a huge order, wraps was good as well. Bar atmosphere at night & much slower service than for lunch. Still give it 5 stars for the taste of the food and prices are one of the lowest during my stay.

While vacationing at the Sirata Beach Resort for a week we ended up having 3 dinners at Bongos. We had large parties of 10 or more on all 3 nights and the waiters were fantastic. We had everything from hamburgers to fish tacos. The fish tacos were great and the Fish and Chips were amazing. The fish and chips were... More

You can't beat the location! Perfect for a yummy frozen concoction on a hot day. I shared a Beachside burger with my daughter and it was plenty of food! Great atmosphere.All attire welcome and the souvenir cup entitles you to $6 refills.

Bongos is a very good bar to just have a drink on the beach. It is a little place to just calm down. Kids will most likely get very bored eating there. The chips were very good and our waitress was very sweet.

While we enjoyed sitting on the beach, the food was NOT GOOD! Drinks are all served in plastic cups that make the place look trashy. Lots of foot traffic as you try to eat. Portions do not add up to the prices. 10 french fries on my plate with my Reuben. More sauerkraut and russian dressing than corned beef. It... More

We came here for lunch after spending some time at St. Pete Beach. There are places to sit both in and out of the sand. We choose to sit in the sand. Our waiter acted like he hated his life. I asked him multiple questions about items on the menu and he had no idea about the food he was... More
