Description: Peg's is a renovated bungalow nestled in Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg with an outdoor patio (surrounded by Florida native fauna), a covered Indoor-Outdoor porch and an inside bar with 3 tables. The cuisine is a fusion of New American and Mexican. Cycle Brewing began at Peg's and is still the hallmark of good beer at the Cantina, but there are always a couple of guest taps. The wine menu is priced at $23 bottles and $33 bottles. Many offered by the glass. The list targets Latin American and Spanish wineries.

“HAD TO CHANGE MY MIND!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

I was here months ago and wrote a very unfavorable review due to the poor service we received. I want to stress, though, that the owner responded to me via trip advisor and sent me a very generous gift card asking that we give them another try. Went again tonight and had a totally different experience. Our server, Haley, could not have been more attentive. She was on top of everything. The food arrived in a decent amount of time and the three of us enjoyed each dish immensely. We will definitely go back again. Thank you, Peg's, for the great customer service!!!!

“Where the locals go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

I almost hate to write this review because I don't want to spill the beans about the best all around hang out in Gulfport. First, its a great place to get an affordable, fresh dinner in a clean, eclectic, inviting atmosphere. Mostly Tex Mex, you could close your eyes and pick the right thing. My favorites are the Vegitaki (vegetarian burrito) and the quinoa salad. My boyfriend's faves are pulled pork tacos and the personal pizza. There are always hot sauces to top anything off with fresh made from Bo Tiki down the street. There are always specials too-so ask. The second reason Peg's is wonderful is because its the (original) home of Cycle brewery,where the best local craft beer is made. Its so good that the Cycle brewery has a location on Central Avenue-but that's another review! Just know that there's no shortage to interesting food, beer, sangria and conversation here!

Sweet burrito together with with different beers from their own brewery in their nice garden is strongly recommended. Many different beers to choose from. Very friendly and caring staff!

“Casual Spot in Funky Gulfport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I love this place. Well-prepared fresh mexican-themed vittles and some of the best craft beer in Florida brewed by Cycle Brewing on-site and sent over from their brewery in downtown St. Pete. There's nothing really fancy here, but what is here is great. Tacos, nachos, burritos, quesadillas, etc. Also a very tasty selection of pizzas constructed on tortillas. Try the Fresh Market. Speaking of which, there are plenty of dishes for vegans. Hang out at the inside bar, or eat out under the trees. This is a really cool place.

“Fell off my unicycle good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Unicycle brewing has outstanding beer and Pegs is home for that beer. All the beers were phenomenal, Doug is a master at his craft. The unicycle series beer I had was so good, had I rode a unicycle to Pegs I surely would have fallen off due to the awesomeness of this wheat rye beer. Pegs had an excellent Mexican food menu, and the service was awesome. Plenty of outdoor & half outdoor(outdoor roof w/space heaters) seating with great atmosphere. A must for anyone who loves craft beer, great Mexican food and a sassy waitress :)
