Don't bother. Seven of us stopped here for lunch while strolling Central Ave. We kindly asked the waiter to wipe down the table. This was done reluctantly it seemed, with a cloth that reeked so bad even those with no sense of smell could smell it. We then waited about 10 minutes to be served. I watched the waiter pour...

First of all, let me say that I've had lunch here at least 10 times. The food is pretty good, average bar food, burgers, sandwiches, etc. The prices are very reasonable. The location is nice, right on Central Avenue and the restrooms are reasonably clean. Now for the thing.....My coworker and I ate lunch here on a Friday and both... More

We stumbled onto this place while strolling Central Ave. They have an outside patio so we sat down for a quick bite with no expectations. We were pleasantly surprised by the food quality as well as the prices. After 2 drinks each and a couple of burgers with tots, we came out below $40 including tip. Our server was extremely... More

Drinks a little pricey. Outside patio popular with the smokers. Mid day on a Saturday not very busy at all. Nice interior. Wasn't really hopping on our visit. No frills local watering hole.

Stopped for lunch. Two custom bloodies and a perfect burger. Mushrooms, tomato, lettuce, and dynamite SWISS cheese. Served by a beautiful smile that served as a swell dessert. Burger under $6!

We saw this bar mentioned on a Food Network show so we thought we would try it after going to a baseball game the other night. Drinks were fine, no wine list, just generic house offerings. My son liked getting a plastic tub of soda. Beer list was good, they had some interesting beers. We ordered some food, we asked... More

This place was so cool I went there twice in my four day stay in St. Pete. The bartenders are super friendly, fast service despite how busy they were, cool atmosphere and drink prices are super reasonable. Good bar food too!

We visited this place because we were wanting a cheaper night out while vacationing in St. Pete. My husband and I wanted something different and we found it. We purchased the pulled bbq sandwich that has Mac and cheese on it. This sandwich was featured on the travel channel, so we felt we needed to give it a try and... More

This place is surprisingly awesome. Most everything on the menu is $5.91 or under and the food is great. Can't beat the prices and the staff is fast and friendly.
