One of my favorites places – I love Ringside Cafe for both lunch and an enjoyable evening out. The food and service are always great. If you stay for the music, you won't regret it. The place has a lot of atmoshpere. The patrons and staff are down to earth and friendly. There is nothing not to like here.
Great Sports Bar – A locals hang-out, and we felt right at home. Very comfortable with surprisingly great grub. We didn't stay into the evening long enough to take in the Blues entertainment, but we will certainly make a point to the next time we're in St. Pete. The Ringside Cafe is a special place - hope it never changes.
A comfy, unpretentious spot that serves up down-home cooking and live blues. – The Scene
Forget the spit and polish. Ringside Cafe leans toward a little grubby, just enough to please the big crowd of partyers lining the bar. No one will notice if you spill your drink here. There's usually a band wailing live blues in the back, with couples crammed together on a small dance floor.
You almost feel obligated to order beer in a place like this. But if you're not up for suds, start with a martini. Nice and stiff, it's loaded with stuffed olives bisected by swizzle sticks. If you're hungry, order the tomato bisque soup; it's homemade and delicate, with tiny bits of real tomato floating in its broth--delicious. Move onto a big, hefty burger, perfectly grilled and dripping with flavor, with a twice-baked potato on the side. Give dessert a pass.
Blues and Booze – If you like good blues, food, and booze this is the place to be in St. Petersburg. They have all the best local and traveling blues acts in the city. They got the regular bar food but it is inexpensive and big portions. The service is quick and friendly. The drinks are stiff and prices reasonable. You can't go wrong.
Best Blues, Food and Fun! – If you haven't been it's a must go. I can't remember a time when the people weren't friendly and the music wasn't awesome!!
