Flying Bridge is an open air bar/restaurant with good casual dining and a great view to the sunset. Staff is friendly, view wonderful The only downside is finding it if you're not staying at Tradewinds

We usually have at least one lunch at the Flying Bridge when we stay at the Tradewinds, which we have done for the past few years for a conference. Last year I was underwhelmed with the food. This year it’s gotten better again. My husband...More

Dinner choices of skewered shrimp and ribs are both winners. They also offer takeout service, which is quite handy.

Since this is pool side and beach side, we ate here several times. We enjoyed every item we tried! The servers are all excellent and made dining fun!

Our family has been coming to the Flying Bridge for over 20 years. It's a staple when we visit St. Pete Beach! They have fantastic service, great food, and an inviting atmosphere.

We were going to eat here one day but they didn't have anything on the menu we wanted and it was pretty pricey compared to surrounding restaurants so we walked down to Bongos. I'm sure the food would have been good as all the food...More

The Flying Bridge is quintessential Florida dining. From its origins as an authentic cracker cottage - the simple architectural style of the state's first settlers - to the fresh grouper sandwiches of its kitchen, the restaurant serves up an experience that you can't find outside of the Sunshine State. In warm weather, the restaurant's open-air feel gives you fresh gulf breezes and spectacular views of the beach with our meandering waterway running right beneath you. The all-day menu features a wide range of appetizers, salads, burgers, chicken and fresh seafood sandwiches. In the evenings, The Flying Bridge's extensive menu expands to include even more items, including fresh salmon, grouper, shrimp and other heavier dinner selections that you can enjoy while you watch the sun set over the horizon.
