It honestly think they would rather be a bar. We first went to Brady's about 6 years ago and would make special trips to eat the wonderful Brisket and Ribs. Slowly the food as declined. It is unfortunate because it was one of the places that we would make a point of wrapping our evening around. We would eat at... More

I will preface this review with the information that it was a 3rd Friday Street Party Night in Safety Harbor, and the place truly ROCKS with business for most of the local places. With that being said, wouldn't you think that management would increase the staffing levels on nights like these to give GREAT service so that patrons will return?... More

Cold food. Half full side items and no smokey flavor at all. Seemed like the chicken and pulled pork where rite out of an oven not a smoker. Limited and overpriced menu. Rubbish.

Real sweet tea, awesome sauces. True homestyle bbq. Make sure to try the Coca-Cola cake with grandma's recipe!

On business in Safety Harbor for a few days. Always wanted to try Ol Brady's. Ordered take out and while picking up I was excited about the great smoky aroma in the restaurant. Excited I was I hurried back to the hotel. We ordered the combo platter w/ 3 meat choices. We had the 1/4th chicken, Ribs, and pulled pork... More

My wife and I went to Brady's on Memorial Day. We both had the baby back ribs. They were good, but not fall of the bone. They needed some more smoking to get that fall off the bone we all are looking for. Somewhat fatty and grisly. However, they were good enough to eat, not just the way I like... More

I have been lucky to spend some time in Safety Harbor on vacation having extended several business trips over the past three years. I tend to look for the places that 'real locals' inhabit as I'm not fond of the 'prefabricated' type of franchised outlets. I must have been to Bradys a dozen or more times and each time I... More

Looked like a cute spot for a quick bite. Food wasn't that great, server/bartender was texting the entire time.

The ribs were great here, I was expecting them to be as good as they were. The staff was very nice and friendly and this place was spotless, which was pleasantly surprising for a rib joint/bar.

If you go to Safety Harbor avoid this place. The food is overpriced and average, but the worst part is the service. It doesn't cost anything extra to be nice; the waitress we had was rude and never brought us the sauce for the pulled pork sandwich & when we asked for sauce she seemed like she was annoyed that...
