We accidentally discovered Friendly's 25 years ago when we first bought our vacation condo on the beach. Watching the karaoke in a place that had so many regulars and the warm friendly and fun atmosphere was such an unexpected hoot! And it hasn't changed since. Food is good as bar food goes. It's the kind of place where a woman... More

A group of my friends and I first tried this place after a long flight to the area. It was great for what it was, bite to eat and a beer. Food was OK, service was attentive. However when we went back for a second visit with an additional friend of ours, he was treated so poorly it broke my... More

Guess this would be a good local hangout if you are into an older crowd, Mediocre food, decent drinks. Nothing special.

This unassuming tavern has a happy hour from 8AM-7PM (for those who work the night shift, I suppose)! Nonetheless, the burgers are huge & excellent & definitely worth a try! Also checked it out for breakfast. Surprisingly, the eggs benedict was very good (and under $8)! Very pleasant staff & good service. Check it out!

I went in there with a friend after we had been to watch the Tampa Rays. It was a really good session. The karaoke was loud and fun and the drinks were excellent. It is not to everyone's taste but we enjoyed ourselves. It has good food though we did not eat there. The ambience is great and you fell... More

Friendly's Tavern has always been one of my favorite places to go to along the beach. The food is always delicious and they have karaoke!
