Description: We are omnivores — carnivorous, chocolate-loving, bacon-hoarding, wineauxs, beer geeks, curd nerds and yes, even vegetarians. Together we are shamelessly unapologetic flavor crusaders and Datz is our playground. An american gastropub + market dishing up regional comfort food favorites generously paired with craft beer, boutique wine and artisanal cheese. Served with ample sides of culinary education and entertainment in a spirited, ever-evolving environment. After all, we believe ordinary belongs in the dictionary, not in a restaurant. Especially ours.

I was in the restaurant and would describe to place as terrible. The best part was that we were seated promptly. The server took our drink order and we then ordered lunch. I ordered a burger, my friend ordered a Reuben. Our food came after a close to 30 minute wait and only after I called the manager over. My... More

Flying into Tampa I asked the person seated next to me for a breakfast recommendation. She didn't quiver and said "Datz." Sweet mother of all bakeries! We started with a bloody Mary which came with bacon; followed up with crème brûlée French toast and pastry icing. And two more strips of bacon! Waitress asked if I wanted syrup even though... More

We dined at Datz for lunch on a recent trip to Tampa and we were told there was a 30 minute wait but it ended up only being about 10 or 15 minutes - wonderful surprise! We sat upstairs and while I had no problem with that, we were situated very closely between two other tables. I felt as though... More

Had a great time visiting here for a friends birthday dinner. I love the vintage feel this place has and the menu had some excellent choices. Our server was great and the food was definitely above average. Large portions and nice presentation. If I had to suggest any improvements I would say that the place was HOT, the air conditioning...

This morning was the third time my partner and I have been to Datz to breakfast. The first two times the food was excellent. The coffee, monkey bread, pastrami benedict, and breakfast sandwiches were delicious. We were impressed by the quality of the ingredients and the execution. That is why we got up early this morning and headed to Datz... More

Great food with multiple choices for any palate. Service good. Many varieties of liquor to whet the taste buds with the meal.

I love the atmosphere of Datz and carnivores seem to love the food, but as a vegetarian, I'm always sad that my only choices consist of the same veggie burger, vegan stew and sandwich that have been on the menu for the past three + years. I've had the three options until I'm sick to death of them.

Datz never fails to offer the best 'deli' style food. They have a really good wine list and a great bar for full liquor. Husband drinks beer but passed this time as he was driving. Husband ordered the stuffed meatloaf which he hasn't ordered prior. He said it was the best meatloaf meal he ever had. I tasted it, the... More

Perhaps it was the time of day (mid afternoon) and the three of us ordered a pastry and coffee. While the service was fine, the pastries were stale. I am willing to try again bur at a different time of dsy..

Oh no! Yikes. Stale pastry? No good. We make everything in-house; should you ever encounter that, please, please let a manager know so we can get you a replacement. Prior to your next visit, please email my Communications Director at deborah@datztampa.com; we would love to buy you dessert and coffee to make up for that disappointing experience. Thanks for checking... More

This food is different, decadent and oh so tasty. Had the mac n cheese bits during lunch and one of their sandwiches on fresh baked bread - both were to die for! Celebrated a birthday after a nice long bike ride down Bayshore/Davis Islands and chowed down on monkey bread, which is amazing, and everyone had something different - nothing... More
