Small local wooden building. Mainly sandwiches, a cracker menu for sure. I had a fish and french fries. Cold Bud. Some sit on the front porch with a beer and cigerate.

I went to the new location downtown St. Petersburg and was disappointed to find out that they weren't serving food , but we could order from a restaurant down the block and they would bring it over. It's a real shame because we loved the food that they had at the old location. We left and walked over to Avenue... More

Ringside is a bar with great food and good service. The first thing we were told was the menu was quite limited because they were moving in a few days but there was still a large selection. All four of us had something different and everything was delicious. Their hand made onion rings in batter are awsome. They should do... More

It's a blues bar, with music 7 days a week. Food, Beer, Music. I'm in! I got the black and blue burger, pretty good burger. I couldn't stay for the band but i'm sure they rocked the house. Good bar with good food.

We've been going to the Ringside for over 20 years. They have a pretty good menue. Music is too loud but it's a bar what do you expect? Food's usually OK.

Great pub food and good beer selections. The Ribs were on special the day we were there but I can't see getting ribs anywhere unless it's there specialty. Stick to the usual suspects good burgers, great wings,sweet potato fries. I had the French Dip it was yummy with onions, swiss on fresh cuban bread accompanied with a very salty au... More

I read the reviews on trip advisor about this place. Someone stated the ribs were to die for. Well, all I can say is they have set the bar very low. I ordered the ribs, they were fatty, the flavor if you want to call it that came from the sauce. The meat on the ribs was horrible. The fries... More

go to sunken gardens or the trop first and then go to listen to some good music at this rustic place. Have a couple of drinks and enjoy.

If you find yourself in Portland, Oregon and you have time on your hands, get in the motor and buzz down to the Ringside Cafe in St Petersburg, FL. It will be time well spent. Order the ribs which frankly, are to die for. And if you have just driven down from Portland you will feel you are about to... More
