The place is located in a yacht club and have great views from the Tampa Bay. You can see the sunset also. They have also an area for bands. It is a relax and safe place. The food is good but the quantity of the main dishes it is pretty small. For the price I recommend the soups and sushi.... More

Good place for lunch when the weather is nice. My favorite thing on their menu is the conch fritters. These can be hit and miss at a lot of restaurants but they have it done right. It comes with a spicy dipping sauce. Try it if you go.

We chose this restaurant so we would be able to eat dinner and watch the sunset. We were not disappointed. The food was great and the sunset was spectacular. We ate outside right along the water. Check the sunset times on Google and then plan to get their 45 minutes before sunset since the times that are given for sunset... More

We did a going away lunch for a colleague at Hula Bay Club. The best thing about this place was the decently priced burgers and the view. There was no sushi available which was a huge disappointment for me. But the biggest disappointment was the Hawaii theme especially when you consider all the references to Duke's in Waikiki. There was... More

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
