Easy to access via boat. Great views from the outside deck. Great food and drink plus a decent sushi menu. Always a favorite when visiting Tampa bay

My daughter and I had a late lunch at Hula Bay. The service was mediocre, but the food was good. The fried shrimp platter and sushi were very good. You can sit outside and enjoy the views of the bay.

Food is great, view is great, and the atmosphere is on point. Sunday brunch is the best we can find and the setting is perfect for a date or the family.

In town visiting friends, and came here for lunch. They had very good things to say about the views and food. They were right! Hula Bay had excellent water/ marina views, even if the weather was not perfect…still better than work! We came with 2 families (4 young boys) and the staff looked at us like we had 3 heads... More

Excellent view of the bay. We ordered the peel and eat shrimp. Some of the BEST I've ever had! Service was prompt and friendly. Nice variety of beer. The only negative about this visit was that the guy playing a guitar and singing was loud and awful. We could hardly have a conversation because he played so loudly. Please ...... More

Can't help but have the fried grouper. Its excellent. Unfortunately the fries were a bit cold, had to ask for tarter sauce, and Cole slaw was just ok. Nothing like IC Sharks coleslaw. Pulled up on the boat. Good drinks. Food was pretty quick. Server had a bit of an attitude. Didnt seem like he thought he should be doing... More

If you were a boater on Tampa Bay I highly recommend visiting this bar and restaurant. It's a great water front spot. Dip into the pool on Sunday. (Over 21).

Annoying hostess aside, we had a truly enjoyable lunch experience. The waitress was cute, friendly, and skilled, the margarita's were good, and the sushi, made to order, was outstanding. The restaurant is a bit out of the way but worth the extra effort to get there.

I really enjoyed this place while spending a month in Tampa. I can't remember exactly why I decided to stop in for the first time, but it may have been the person sitting on the plane next to me the week before pointing out the window, describing the atmosphere. Each of the 3 times i cam here, i sat outside... More
