Once again Bea and Phil have done it again. Just like their previous two restaurants The Toasted Monkey is the place to go on St. Pete Beach. Between the front bar with the casual atmosphere to the back beach bar next to the pool you can't go wrong. From great bartenders (Suzanna & Megan) out back to Stephanie up front you always feel as if you have been coming there your whole life. Great drinks, great food and the best entertainment the beach has to offer (Billy Agans) you won't be disappointed.

We ate here 3 times during our stay as it was the closest restaurant as we were hanging on the beach to our resort (Alden). No complaints on any food we tried (which was quite a bit). Bar was fun w/ live music & great drinks!

I was recently in St Pete Beach with my girlfriend and my family for Easter Break. We all meet in St Pete Beach every Easter for the last 15 years. The Toasted Monkey was just a dive bar last year when we were here and they have fixed it up and it is quite inviting now. First time there, we sat for at least 10 minutes waiting for a beer at the bar while 3 bartenders tried to mantain the bar. (I've bartended and 3 bartenders should have been able to handle the crowd that was there easily) My family gets together one night while in St Pete Beach for dinner. This year there were 17 of us including nieces and nephews and significant others. We stopped by the Toasted Monkey to see if we could reserve tables for all of us to sit. We were told they could not accomodate that( they could have accomodated, they just didn't want to). They told us we could all sit at seperate tables and they might be able to accomodate that. (real intimate family dinner) We left and went up the beach to Rum Runners who were happy to put tables together for us so we could all eat dinner together. It ended up being a wonderful dinner and when we were done we all sat there the rest of the night and drank at Rum Runner bar. Our bill for dinner was around $400 and that doesn't include the money we spent at the bar when dinner was over. I guess the Toasted Monkey is doing well enough that they dont need to accomodate a $700 dollar night from one group of people! We did go there one last time for a drink and to talk to a manager and tell her of our experience. She really didn;t seem to care and, in fact, in the middle of our conversation, she got called away for something and never came back. We also sat next to a guy at the bar who had a little too much to drink. His last drink he bought, he gave the bartender a $50 dollar bill and never got change. That bartender had just gotten off her shift and was gone. They called her back and she couldn't remember not giving his change, but did reach into her tips and give him his change. When we got to the next bar, we mentioned it to our bartender and he said that the bartenders there are known for not giving change back. Whether this is true or not, watch your change at this bar. We never went back to this bar the rest of our trip.
