“Listen up Seattle: Kites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

I'll get to Bazzie's Beach Bar in a second; first full disclosure. I do live in Treasure Island, but have no other connection to the town. Nor am I in business here. So my review is objective.

I shout out to Seattle because, in June, Alaska Airlines begins daily nonstop flights to Tampa. The beach at Treasure Island is a short drive from Tampa International Airport. So our friends in the Northwest will soon have an alternative to Hawaii and Mexico, for sun and sand, when they just can't stand another moment of winter.

Bazzie's Beach Bar, in the Bilmar Hotel, is, you guessed it, on the beach. What a beach it is too. Gentle surf and white shelly sand, facing West, which means the sun sets into the Gulf of Mexico. And Bazzie's is a perfect vantage point, not just for viewing sunsets but also kites.

Why kites? On any given day in the winter months, the sky above Bazzie's is likely to be filled with them. The beach is so wide that folks fly dozens and dozens of kites without getting in the way of each other or the swimmers and worshippers. It's a delightful spectacle.

Bazzie's isn't fancy or luxurious. But it offers indoor/outdoor seating, friendly service, a long menu, and the food is very good. For instance, there's a flounder sandwich, fried, blackened or grilled. The fish has never been frozen.

It's great to have lunch outside, under an umbrella In February, and watch the world go by on the paved beach walk. Then have a little stroll yourself. That's the life!

“convenient and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Had a great salad here sitting on the beach watching the ocean. the bar service is a bit slow but when you are not in a hurry it does not matter. The frozen Margaritas were excellent. Although the price of a coke was a bit expensive.

“Reasonable fare for breakfast and lunch at the Bilmar - closes at sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

In the Bilmar Beach Resort.
We ate breakfast and lunch a couple of times here during our stay at the Bilmar. Very clean - all of the Bilmar is clean - staff are everywhere cleaning - we liked that. Bazzies is reasonably priced for breakfast and lunch. We preferred it to the other restaurant in the Bilmar "Sloppy Joes".
Very much enjoyed the chicken wings I ordered one day for lunch, nicely spiced and under $8.00 for an order. One breakfast we ate was downright cheap - no complaints about the food. Staff are attentive, (we found the staff in general at the Bilmar to be great), the view at Bazzies is wonderful, nice patio. We would, however, have to agree with some other reviewers that the drink prices were a little high.
