The Half-Pound Grouper Sandwich with waffle fries can be tried for a deal of only $15.99! Their other delightful side options include coleslaw, hush puppies or a side salad.  If you’re not in the mood for a whole grouper sandwich but are looking for more of a snack, Chuck highly recommends their grouper bites full of fresh and decadent flavor.

Get rowdy as you cheer on your favorite teams, sing along to your favorite karaoke song or dance along to a band that makes you feel groovy. 

Collin Sherwin, a frequent patron says, "Pete's Place combines the two best things about South Tampa bars: karaoke and people-watching. You’ll see doctors and lawyers belting out Springsteen and Motown right next to college kids from UT that think ‘old school’ is something off Britney Spears’s third album. The talent on-stage varies as widely as the drink selections behind the bar, and the locals wouldn’t want it any other way." 

Pete's Place South is located in South Tampa at 4145 Henderson Blvd. Make sure you stop by to check out all that this place has to offer!
