Live music, great food, great service, friendly, sociable bartenders. In particular, the bartending team consisting of Torre (LOVED YOUR MAI TAI's;), Brad Love (yummy apple crisp and breakfast shot!) and "Bearded" Brad for always offering us water with our order - NECESSARY :). Thems good people!!! Made for great relaxing experience and awesome memories with great friends! DEFINITELY recommend!

Good music and many seating options, indoors or covered or open lounge seating with trickling water features. Burgers were great.

This is a great place to meet with friends and have a drink. Plus the menu is nice and food is delish. The live music is a great place to sit and unwind or dance a little ! Really friendly staff!

Was there last fall and ordered a double Makers on the rocks. Something to sip on for a while. When I was ready to pay I was told it was a little over 20.00 (I forgot the exact amount) I politely paid the bill and went back to the Toasted Monkey next door for the rest of the week. For what it's worth, the Howard Johnson's and Toasted Monkey next door are much better of a value. The chairs at the pool by Jimmy B's are so uncomfortable people were having to bring towels from their room just to sit on. Avoid this place at all costs.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent visit to Jimmy B's Beach Bar. Our drink prices are competitive with other establishments in the area, and especially when you consider that we are directly on the beach overlooking the ocean.
Jimmy B's Beach Bar is located directly on the beach with awe-inspiring views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico.
In addition, we feature daily live entertainment from early afternoon and throughout the evening, with three different bands of live music and entertainment.
We have never charged a cover charge to our guests to enjoy our Free entertainment and breathtaking views, like other establishments do.
Ordering a double Maker's on the rocks is pricier, as Maker's Mark is a premium alcohol and you are receiving and paying for a double cocktail.
In looking at a receipt that had this type of drink on it, it shows a few of these drinks on that receipt and that is why it added up to that amount.
In fact, I believe that if you were to compare our prices to that of the other place that you went to, you will find that our Platinum Club drink prices are in fact cheaper than their drinks and they do not have the entertainment, atmosphere or view of the beach and ocean like Jimmy B's has.
Jimmy B's Beach Bar does offer the Platinum Club for guests. Membership is free to join and entitles guests to discounted food and beverage prices all day, every day.
We would be happy to have you back as our guest at Jimmy B's Beach Bar and I feel confident that you will see the real value of what we offer in drink and food prices, as well as in the quality of the entertainment that we offer and the atmosphere that no other Beach Bar Grille & Bistro offers on the entire west coast of Florida.
I am confident that you already know that Jimmy B's has been chosen as the #1 Best Beach Bar for multiple years for the entire State of Florida (look it up on the internet) for its value, quality service, atmosphere and for having free entertainment using the best bands available in the Tampa Bay area.

we had a drink here around sunset and loved it. great view of the beach and the place had a lively atmosphere. there was a band playing, people dancing and it was an all round great time. it was a mixture of locals and tourists. we walked down from the sirata so didn't have an issue with parking which some reviews state.
