We had a cervice martini and some sushi rolls. All were good. The coconut crunch with mango was delicious.

The food was decent with the exception of the burger orders med-well came out rare. The view was nice. We were seated on what would be the deck / porch in warm weather. On a chilly day, thanks to their heaters it was comfortable. HOWEVER, birds were flying around inside and we had dried bird poo on the table (... More

Hula bay is just south of gandy on the water, facing southwest. the view is great, the food is good, and the staff is friendly. Dont expect cheap hamburger joint prices because they are trying to do better. Inside has air conditioning, but on a breezy day, outside is beautiful. parking situation is not great, so expect to have to... More

Have been to Hula Bay many times and have had good and not so good experiences. Overall it is a great place to spend an afternoon at the downstairs bar or enjoy a nice evening of dining in the upstairs restaurant. Duke's, the downstairs bar has great views of Tampa Bay. There is live music on the weekends and quite... More

Outdoor bar overlooking the water is, in general, a great location and this fits the bill. Nothing super special about the food (coconut shrimp, smoked fish, pretzel bites) or drinks, but being with a group of 8 people having a good time takes everything up a notch. Yes, sometimes the wait for drinks can seem long, but our waitress Nikki... More

I trust my TA recommendations but this was a huge disappointment. I have given hundreds of reviews and have never given a one star but this place earned it. The service was horrible. They took our initial drink orders and food orders and disappeared. They returned with the cocktails, which were a poor excuse for a cocktail. It took approximately... More

We visited the Hula Bay Club recently for lunch. Seven of us arrived on our friend's pontoon boat from Tampa Bay. There were plenty of free slips behind the restaurant. Lynn had a fried grouper sandwich which she said was outstanding. I had the Naked Duke Burger with grilled onions. My two daughters shared a Shrimp Quesadilla and a burger.... More

$25 gets you out of down town Tampa along the coast to this bar. It's buzzin, food is great and you are right on the water. Whilst we were there the dolphins turned up to say hello, common occurance apparently. In Tampa, do the Hula Bay.

Water front bar. We go by boat. Perfect. Great bar with live music and the food is really good. Pool open in Sunday's. Call ahead because it's closed sometimes. Sunday brunch is great. One of my favorites by boat in Tampa Bay.

Nice outdoor seating on the water. Servers are good but service can be very slow sometimes. the food is very good, i recommend the hula bay burger with the pineapple- YUM. The tacos are also very good, but once i got them and they were a little dry. Overall a decent place for a nice dinner with friends and family.

Thank Kierstin O
