This was an awesome place until they added a fence to block off the beach and an extensive list of rules. Previously you could get a drink, take your umbrella, chair, sunblock, book, blanket, or whatever thru the bar to the beach, then come back when it was time for another drink, then go sit and relax in your chair....

We recently went to the the undertow and it seemed like a cool place. They have cornhole on the beach area and pool tables. They use paper straws which I thought was awesome since plastic straws are bad for the environment, but they use foam cups for their frozen drinks.. The bars are pretty spacious and the staff is nice.... More

This little beach bar is a fun stop on your mid day and sunset walks on the beach! The staff is friendly, there are beach activities like bag toss, dolly ball etc. It is an excellent spot to watch the sunset with a cocktail and a loved one.

We stopped in on a Friday night becuase it has good reviews. Beer selection is terrible. Mixed drinks not much better. Staff was friendly and it is on the beach, but those were the only positives. Clientele skews toward guys enjoying watching the female bartenders in midriffs, or those just out to get drunk.

I'm a local and I come here regularly (dare I say bi-weekly?) with my friends. All the girls are always awesome but Dria R. is exceptional! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a good time on Saint Pete Beach!

Mix of all ages. Afternoon hours are a good mix of ages with the later hours becoming more of a younger hang out. Nice location right on the beach and it is an open air bar during good weather (which is most of the year). Great look out deck to enjoy the Ocean views and have the wind in your... More
