Ferg’s: The Best Sports Bar in Downtown St. Pete!

The History of Ferg’s Sports Bar

Mark Ferguson, a St. Petersburg native, had the vision to open a sports bar in St. Pete’s Gas Plant District. His dream was to become the premier sports bar in the area.

In 1992, his vision became reality when Major League Baseball awarded the city of St. Petersburg with the Tampa Bay Rays!

Ferg’s is not your average sports bar and grill. Its versatile atmosphere makes it the perfect place for celebrating after the Ray’s game, kicking it with friends, or spending quality time with family.

Ferg’s Sports Bar’s Menu

Let’s talk food! Ferg’s chicken wings are crispy, juicy, and tender. No wonder they’re a favorite of St. Pete locals and visitors alike. From classic Honey BBQ to zingy Teriyaki Suicide, this local wing house has something for everyone. 

Of course, this St. Pete sports bar wouldn’t be complete without a premium selection of draft beers. Ferg’s draft selection features classics like Budweiser, Miller Light, and Angry Orchid Cider. Local picks 3 Daughters Beach Blonde Ale and Cigar City Jai Alai IPA are also available on draft.

If you’ve already tried the wings, don’t leave the city before having one of Ferg’s mouthwatering burgers! Each half-pound patty is made fresh from a choice-cut blend of brisket, short rib, and sirloin and served on a buttery brioche bun. Need we say more?! 

Aside from delicious wings and a variety of draft selections, Ferg’s also offers low-cal and low-carb options, such as its famous Mahi Bites, Spanish Salad, and Turkey Club Wrap.
