If you are looking for a place to relax, have a beer or a glass of wine and eat some great food this is your place. Mad Dogs is a local place that allows you to sit outside and enjoy the weather or at the bar to watch a game. Always friendly staff you will enjoy your visit.

We had not been to Mad Dogs in several years. We try to eat healthy and had had some mediocre meals in years past. But last night we had a terrific meal that rivals the best restaurants in South Tampa. My wife had the grilled salmon and I had a swordfish special. The swordfish was cooked perfectly and was a...

Bodingtons on tap! Their steak sandwich and sweet potato fries may be rivaling the best in tampa! Truly worth it. The atmosphere is great and the outside deck is very cool!

We have been going to Mad Dogs for 14 years now. There have been a few changes over the years and they have all been for the better. We love the patio for outdoor dining, but our favorite now is the take out. Definitely try the fish and chips. Our English friend says it is the best in Tampa, and... More

Having holidayed recently in Tampa, the hotel recommended this bastion of England in the middle of Tampa, Situated in a good district, this quirky restaurant was a wonderful find,. We had great food, lovely atmosphere and thought it was reasonably priced. Would go back again and have recommended to all our friends, you have to try the Salmon it was... More

While restaurants come ang go in Tampa... You can always be assured that "Mad Dogs" is open and ready for that intimate evening or meeting place for friends. More of a wine bar, than traditional pub - I have been coming here since the first opened 23 years ago. The food is always a notch better than what you might... More

This review breaks my heart because we love to come here. It is a unique restaurant in South Tampa...a place where you can actually bring your dog with you to dinner. However, the last visit was miserable in so many ways. First, service was below expectation. Second, we had to sit inside, which is something we've only had to do... More

Must try the Stilton Fondue as a starter. It can be paired with naan or fries. We opted with the naan, and it was a delicious combination. Best lamb chops I have had in Tampa so far. Lobster in lobster ravioli is fresh. Ravioli is a little on the sweeter side. Ambiance is eclectic and age of patrons is various,... More

We went on a Sunday evening and sat inside as the weather was damp outside. They do have heat lamps and it is undercover for those to enjoy outdoors but you smell cigarette smoke which was the main reason we ate inside. The décor is quaint and unique. They have a good beer and wine menu although wine I chose... More

This was a fantastic meal. Steak sandwich was delicious. Fondue sauce on the side tasted amazing. French fries were plentiful and crispy. Beer menu was diverse and unique. At night, they play silent movies against the wall of another building. This may be my favorite restaurant in Tampa. A true undercover gem.
