If you're looking for good food and don't care about fancy ambiance, this is the place to go. Very reasonable prices and cheap beer. Food was very fresh and delicious. We sat right at the bar and couldn't have been happier with the service. A lot of bang for your buck.

I really can't understand all the good reviews on this place. As others have said, it's nothing fancy. On a positive note, the service was good and the portions were large. All three of us ordered grilled fish to include snapper and grouper. Neither of these were grilled - they seemed pan fried and we're both a bit rubbery and... More

This small restaurant is located on a pier that juts into Tampa Bay. The view is spectacular. Locals are fishing from the pier beneath the restaurant. The food is classic "pub grub" but great- do NOT miss the grouper sandwich- it is the BEST!

While on vacation we stayed close to this restaurant and noticed how busy it was every evening. So on our last night we decided to give it a try. It was the best meal we had during our entire trip! The grouper was the best we've ever had.....anywhere! If you're looking for a fancy place then this is not for... More

The Rod and Rell Pier is a very popular spot for breakfast or lunch. You are literally right on the water so the views are amazing. There is outside seating and inside where it is noisey and somewhat cramped tables and chairs. The food isn't bad, but be prepared to wait for the delivery. The servers are nice but harried....

At first glance, this little restaurant at the end of the pier doesn't look like much - small and weathered. The locals all know about it and try hard not to share their secret with gangs of tourists, but word has leaked out. No glitzy place, this; not one fancy thing about it. Go in shorts and order from a... More

Do you love breakfast? Love pancakes? Love to be on the water and watching pelicans swooping down into the water to feed on fish? Love spectacular views? Then this is the place for you! Attentive waitstaff and delicious, hearty breakfasts. Come early or be prepared to wait as this place is popular. Afterwards, take a walk on the pier and... More

Not bad. My mother and I had breakfast. Our waitress was good. But the food was just OK. I had the french toast and bacon and my mother had the pancakes and bacon. Pancakes were your standard pancakes. French toast was a little dry but the flavor wasn't bad. Coffee was weak but that's not a problem for us. (We... More
