Hadley was a fabulous beach bar bartender. Full of energy and never left us waiting for another. The appetizers were tasty. Free shot at sunset.

“Hadley was great”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

I had four different servers at Bongos over several days but Hadley was far and away the best person I encountered on the trip. If you can find him at the back bar, you will have a little slice of heaven on earth.

“Amazing restaurant right on the beach with a fabulous view of the sunset.”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Went to Bongos twice this past week for happy hour and dinner. The green flash frozen drink was delicious! The coconut shrimp was the best we've ever had - perfectly fried, not greasy and so tasty. The live music and living room seating was so cool. I will definitely visit Bongo's again soon!

“Great atmosphere and view”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

One of our favorite beach bars on St. Pete Beach. Drinks were generous, staff was friendly, live music late afternoon, comfortable couches and tables. Nice place to watch sunset.
