This was our third year back to Bongo's. Still a great beach bar, but am giving it a 3 because it is not the same as it was. They have added much more seating (more fancy seating - about 100) and did add some nice touches with torches and a fire pit wall. Very laid back. The bar area is the same, which is great but we miss our fav. bartender who is no longer there. The newer ones, are nice, but not as personable. Music is great (again, a single guitar player that was very laid back as well). We sat by the fire and it was cozy, myself and many others I see were yawning, so guess it was relaxing. If your looking for an upper scale place by the beach (price reflects it), then Bongo's is it for you. If your looking for a fun, get a bit crazy, summer vacation place, then I would suggest the Twisted Monkey, Woody's or even Sea Haggs.
