Make a reservation for the weekends or you wonít get in. Food is tasty and the beer pairings are excellent.

From a strictly beer or even wine perspective, not a place I would choose. Sorry, really more of a Southern Cooking Gourmet type restaurant. Good at what they do though but I have no idea why they are on RateBeer.

Great food! Decent beers, some focus on local. I wish the selection was more food friendly. More Saisons & Belgians would be great. Usually have quite. Few IPA's on tap.

Went with Wilkes and Lynn and we were a little underwhelmed with our food, but the place is cool and I would try again if I lived in the area (I hear they switch up there menu often). As for the brew, they had some decent drafts - remember I had a wake and bake before dinner and a jai alai with.

This is handís down one of the best restaurants in Tampa (if not the best). Beer selection is very good, but not is the main focus here and for good reason. You wonít find a more creative menu in Tampa.

Awesome little joint in a semi-trendy area of tampa. Small dining room with a nice rustic feel. Upstairs is a tiny, intimate bar with a few tables and chairs. Outside on the roof deck is a bunch of tables. Awesome ambiance. Good beer selection. Food is OUT OF THIS WORLD! prices are fair. A must visit. The menu changes every week, so make sure you check in often. Also, make a reservation. There is limited room in the dining room and the roof is first come first serve.

This is a nice place that does not take itself too seriously. The downstairs dining room is relatively small, but with a reservation, garners a nice table. The ambiance is eclectic and unique, and romantic lighting every time I have been. The food is outstanding- they change their menu every week based on local farms and what new produce and meat is available. There are always several vegetarian options and a steak/ burger option as well. The beer selection is small, but fierce. When I was there last I had an old chub that paired wonderfully well with the hummus and a hennepin that worked beautifully with the panko crusted tofu I had. The six taps rotate out, and they always have PBR around, too. I check Facebook and if the food sounds good, then I know the beer will be as well. The rotate taps and almost always have Cigar City beers to work with their food.
