I was here to see a live music show, which was also my first visit. I arrived about 2 hours before "doors opened" and sat at a small table hoping to get service, a beer or food -something. No one ever came over, or even looked at me until I was approached about 1.5 hours prior to the show when... More

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
