Went to the soft opening last night. The food is great and made to order and never sits out. So you till wait a little longer. But it is SO SO worth the wait. The meatloaf sandwich is awesome and the pulled pork is as well and have a great list of sides. The appetizers are a must try. The fried green tomato's and the cheese bombs and the mild buffalo boneless wings are all a must try. YOU MUST try the Punky's Special Sauce. It is a kicked up Ranch Sauce that I wanted to bottle and put on the store shelf today for sale. This is a everyone one open minded welcome bar and is open starting today 12/16/2015. The hours are Sunday to Thursday 11:00am to Midnight and Friday and Saturday 11:00am to 3:00pm. They will have drink specials as well. They will soon have drag bingo and open mic night and lost of great entertainment. There is lots of parking and great mixed open minded crowd. This beats the socks off of Hamburger Mary's. The food at Punky's just closed your doors. Drop the mic.
I work at a bar on St. Pete beach and drive out of my way to stop at this spot on my way home. Not the biggest bar I've ever been to but it seems to do well. It's nice to walk into a place where everyone in there either knows each other or just treats you like one of the regulars. The staff is pretty good and always makes the experience worthwhile, and the drinks even better. They don't serve food but every time I've asked have always given me a place that does and has it delivered in. Alot of restaurants near by and most don't mind walking your order over. Awesome place to jam out to some music and unwind, jukebox Iis like a huge iphone on the wall. Overall good place to get a drink and sit back for a few.
Best bar/fine dining in St. Pete. Z Grille is good food, straight up. But it's also a little gimmicky in the best possible way. With special deviled eggs everyday and cheeky appetizers like Dr. Pepper Ribs, it's a surprisingly chic destination. The serving staff is a hot, tattoo'd bunch of adorable hipsters who know their food. The cocktails area great. The nachos are so good they should be illegal. Hit Z Grille for happy hour or to impress a date. It can be a little pricey if you're going wine/appetizer/entree/dessert but it's well worth it. Don't miss the awesome hand dryer in the bathroom.
