Sounds like Dad didn’t want to comply with Pete’s policy which is to card all who want to enter.

My wife and I spent a week in Neptune Beach recently. We went to Pete's Bar every afternoon. Thanks to Jesse, the bar staff and all those friendly patrons at the bar. They made our week a memorable one. Great bar! Larry and Darlene

This place is a hang out for young people who don't care about smoking. There were quite a few drunk people and the place smelled so bad that we went in and left shortly after. Would not recommend it!

Petes is the oldest bar in North Florida which adds to its ambiance. They still have quarter pool tables. As for the drinks they are cheap and strong. The bartenders are excellent as well. A must see for a new comer to Neptune Beach.

Great, great granddad opened the bar in 1933. We take pride in keeping Pete's as authentic as possible. Try us again at Thanksgiving where you can enjoy an ice cold beer outside among our 4000+ family members. Pete

Iconic local bar. Your experience will vary with your expectations. If you are looking for something low-brow then this is it. Inexpensive drinks, pool tables, dark, and smokey, and generally friendly.More

If they did, I wouldn't eat it! Smoke filled room, watered down drinks and a rough bunch of servers is all you get.
