As with most places here in the area, there was a struggle to find parking but we lucked out and the Grand Plaza Hotel where Bongos is located had one last spot available.
Our server ( Celeste or Charolette......sorry can't remember)
was attentive and very personable. She also told us about
the FREE BEACH RIDE service.

The live band was good, drinks and food were very good.
I would go back if in the area again.

Sometimes, the food at the beach bar is sub-par. This is NOT the case with Bongo's! They have excellent, quality food (favorites are the shrimp tacos, nachos, steak flatbread, and scallops!) and there is pretty much always live music here. The tables are perfectly set up so that you can literally sink your toes into the sand while you eat and have a gorgeous view of the beach (great sunsets to be seen!). Good cocktails, too. Decent beer selection - not overpriced - and pretty easy (free!) parking, depending on what time you go. HIDDEN GEM!!

Had some drinks here on a Wed. afternoon. Not to busy but a great location to have a drink and enjoy the beach. Plenty of things can happen and make this place interesting. Great service at the bar and the bartender was very pleasant. The drink are normal price but the location on the beach is great.

Living by the beach I tend to frequent Bongos on the weekends for lunch and occasionally for dinner. I have tried a variety of menu items and everything has been delicious. Great food, the menu has a variety to choose from, great service (remember this is the beach, not normal every day hectic life - relax and enjoy your surroundings - things are slower here on purpose!!) to the view you cannot beat Bongos. Eventually I will make it to the other restaurants at the Grand Plaza but for now I am happy sitting with my toes in the sand while I enjoy great food, the beautiful view of the Gulf and the music (which I appreciate not being too loud like a lot of other places).

We love Bongos and always stop by when we are in town. The fish tacos and grouper sandwich are the favorites and they always have a great beer selection. The servers are excellent too and we always make sure we spend our day at the beach in front of the Grand Plaza so that we can hang around the music playing at the bar.
