The Closest Thing to Being on the Water in Upper Tampa Bay

Never understood why there aren't more places on the water in Upper Tampa Bay. Jack Willie's is the closest I've found. It tucked into a marina with just a sliver of water. Good food, decent prices. Nice music on week-ends, sometimes on week days.

I used to live in Oldsmar area and have since moved to Tampa. I still make my way to this great spot for some really good, fresh Grouper. The atmosphere is great and although the inside is a bit small as well as the outside it has a great ambiance. If you plan on having dinner be sure to get... More

Every time my family visits me, we come to this wonderful gem. It is such a fun atmosphere! We even saw stingrays in the water off the deck. Food is always perfect. Live music sometimes. Just a great way to spend time with others.

Truth be told, we ended up at this restaurant by chance. We were trying to go to another restaurant but they were having electrical problems. We were on the road and had taken a detour to go to the other place. We had our dog, it was hot out and we just wanted to eat. I remembered seeing a little... More

What do you get when you hide a seafood bar and restaurant behind a bait shop and next to a canal? You get some really delicious food served by a really friendly staff in a true local setting. Had the fried pickles to start...recommend. Had the grouper ruben...recommend. Wife had the fish tacos...they were good. If the weather is nice,... More

After moving to Safety Harbor, FL, we were told to give Jack Willies in Oldsmar a try. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our server was friendly and seemed genuinely concerned that we really enjoy our food and drink choices. I especially enjoyed the restaurants' "setting". It reminded me of Key West with it's rustic feel and grass hut... More

Stopped in for lunch with my son and his family--5 of us including a not quite 3 yr. old. Servers were friendly, polite and efficient. Good selection on the menu incl. kid's menu. Had the clam strips and fried shrimp basket--both were tasty, lightly breaded and just crispy enough on the outside. Shrimp tacos were packed with fresh,large shrimp and... More

is not. Too many people puffing away blowing the smoke on everyone else at the bar. I don't understand why FL restaurant owners feel that only smokers (18% of FL population) should enjoy the outdoor areas. Great live music. Dinner was great. Some bikers and kids. Smoke was not goodt!!!! Beware or sit inside where non smokers are relegated..

I love hanging out here when I am in town. I come from the North so when I get down here it is great to sit outside and listen to the music. The grouper is great and the staff are fun.

Came in just before close on Friday night. Sat under the Tiki Hut Bar. Live music was ok. Crab cakes for app, had a salad and fried catfish dinner with season fries. Everything down to the tarter sauce was excellent. Served hot!! Staff was great. Beer was cold. Highly recommended!
