This is a great new place run by true beer lovers. I was greeted with friendly smiles, a fantastic beer selection, and fun and casual conversation with other patrons as well as the owners. Tampa Bay needs more places like Willard’s Tap House.
I feel like we are very spoiled in SE PA - such great distribtion of stuff from all over, but especially great bars. Florida is NOT a place I expect to find anything that rivaled here but I was in for a surprise when my sister took me to Willard’s on a visit to Largo. This is such a comfortable and friendly place. There was a sample or so if I wasn’t sure, but the owners and staff knew their stuff. Staff this friendly, knowledgeable and giving of their time, attract what matters 2nd most to me - a great mix of people. But the MOST important factor is the beer and they had that covered too - near 40 taps that had enough variety to make any BA happy. My only regret was that they had no real kitchen or hot food but I am betting that changes. Next trip to Florida you better beleive I will be back. Hopefully this place is successful - these people deserve it.
Willard’s is a great new addition to the Tampa Bay Brew scene! 40 taps of awesome craft beer. The local breweries are always represented and a wide selection of IPA’s and a few select imports too. The place is great, not at all pretentious and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly! The owners will even stop what they’re doing to have a chat with you about beer or food or hockey...
A must stop for anyone doing the Tampa Beer Crawl.
Willards is awesome, with a great beer selection, knowledgeable friendly staff and a warm inviting decor. The only issue is at times the music can be loud which is less than conducive to conversation. Still overall one of the best beer bars around.
