This was our second or third time here. It was a gorgeous November afternoon in Tampa and we wanted to sit on a deck. Hula Bay has a great deck, right on the water with the boats parked out front. Parking is always a challenge, especially in peak times. You might want to valet park, which is free for tips.... More

Hula Bay is at a great location, right on the water with outdoor seating. Birds can be a problem, with the table next to us having to chase them away because they defecated on their table. Guess that's what you get for sitting outside. If you have a boat you can pull up and dock right there. There is even... More

Great waterfront restaurant with sunset views. Was cold with a front coming in fast but we were on the lee side so it was great. Had grouper tacos, fantastic! Disappointed the waitress didn't tell us about the stone crab special as I love them. Overall great

After doing some research on Tampa restaurants with waterfront views I stumbled across the Hula Bay Club. The menu seemed like it had a nice selection and was reasonably priced. I was a little put off by some of the bad reviews I had read on TripAdvisor, Google, and Yelp, but we decided to check it out for ourselves anyway.... More

Food is expensive and sub-par. Service is terrible in the bar and the drinks were disappointing. It was last afternoon when we stopped in for a drink and apps. There were maybe 20 customers outside and inside. This place is missing a great opportunity to become a great place...there are lots of similar places on/near St. Pete Beach that are... More

Good view, best burger I have had in the area. They have a authentic sushi chef on staff. They also have a pool which probably gets crazy in the summer but no one was in it during the week or maybe it was not open yet for the season.

For someone that is not a local, you likely wouldnt know about this little place unless someone recommended it to you. While visiting clients, it was recommended so everyone traveling with me agreed to give it a shot. Very glad we did. We sat out on the patio deck as the day was coming to an end. The staff made...
