This was our second visit to Bongos, this time we were guests at the hotel. The food is amazing! The burgers and fries and the fish and chips are they best around. You just can't beat the environment of this restaurant!

Fabulous place right on the Gulf beach. Great for viewing sunset while listening to live music. Food was good not great but atmosphere was terrific. Very casual & fun. Can eat at covered bar area or out at tables. A must for beach goers.

Really enjoyed having dinner with my toes in the powdery sand of St. Pete Beach. Restaurant is right on the beach and is a large place that could host lots of people at once. Food was better than I expected for a walk up beach/...More

Great atmosphere, live music, and tables literally in the sand. I never ate at a restaurant where I could take off my shoes and put my toes in the sand. Very enjoyable and the food was decent as well.

Stopped here upon arrival to get our toes on the sand and have lunch. Burger is a must but the shining star was the seafood artichoke spinach dip...amazing. Our server Joel did a fantastic job. We will be back.

I like dogs don't get me wrong, however, people forget they are animals and they have their place. I don't think they allow them, otherwise they'd be hair flying everywhere. Just my two cents :-)
