Probably my favorite of the three tampa restaurants I tried

I went as part of a business lunch. We sat out on the deck and had a great view of the bay. Service was quick and polite. All I got was a burger with toasted pineapple and some broccoli, but darned if it wasn't still delicious. The two other diners I was with had seafood dishes and both had... read more

I was visiting Tampa for the weekend and wanted a casual restaurant with good food. Hula Bay had a great selection, reasonable prices, and you can't beat the water view.

What better way to start the day with lunch at Hula Bay! The weather was perfect for dining on the back patio and the music was an added plus. We chose the crunchy Grouper Sandwich with their "Must Try" Petal Fries and our lunch was perfect in every way. The Grouper was as delicious as you would expect in any... More

First visit tonight, taking a visiting friend for a scenic dinner. The outdoor atmosphere was great with the warmer weather upon us. We had beer battered haddock, and sushi. Food was delicious. Service was good.

Took the hostess 10 minutes from the time we walked in for lunch to greet us. Then when was asked about sitting outside for 3 she came back and said 15 minute wait. So we sat inside, and watched in the next 5 minutes two parties of 3 be lead by the same hostess to dine outside. Took the waitress... More

Went by for an early dinner. Took a long time to get served and they were not busy. Always great views of the bay however. The chicken fingers are always great so worth ordering. Can arrive by boat or car.

We were over in St. Pete doing some shopping for kayaks. After we were done and heading back home we decided to make a stop at Hula Bay. The sun and water just kept calling us. It was just after 4 so we beat the rush for happy hour and missed the rush for traffic going home. We sat out... More

Was in the Tampa area visiting clients and we made another trip to Hula Bay. As usual the staff and service was great. The night we visited was very windy but they had the flaps down so we were able to sit out on the deck. There were 4 in our party and we all tried something different on the... More

Very nice place. Great view of water and boats. Oscar eggs Benedict was fine but the crab didn't really add anything our waitress was very attentive and apologized for not being more so. No need.
