I want to say first that our server Cynthia was an asset to out great dining experience. Very friendly and personable. Wonderful menu, Food that looks and tastes perfect. You can tell there are chefs who pay attention to quality, presentation and creating a diverse menu. Great view on the water. Cant wait to return.

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...

Had a lunch at the Duke's side of the restaurant, nice view of Tampa Bay. Grouper sandwich was fried as I ordered, however, fryer oil kept dripping off the batter, ended up with a bunch of oil in the basket when all was said and done. Their chipotle mayonnaise was good, their tartar sauce tasted fishy (so I did not... More

We were visiting Tampa and Hula Bay came highly recommended by a number of people. Stopped by for lunch on a Saturday. Got a table on the deck with a great view of the water. My wife fish tacos and I a burger. Both were great. Our server was very attentive. My only complaint would be the parking, or lack... More
