Great food and service!

This is a favorite lunch spot for us. My son gets a burger and I have the chicken Philly. Both the regular and sweet potato fries are always perfectly done. Kitchen is visible from the dining area and everything is very clean.

The food was delicious and cooked to order. Visited only because of reviews on TripAdvisor and so glad that we went. The Philly cheese steak was very good with the grilled vegetables. I sampled my friend's burger and it was good also. I know you won't go wrong with either the burger or cheese steak! It sits in a small... More

Me and my family go at least once a week! The food is amazing and the staff is very friendly and personable. They actually know our whole order as soon as we walk in the door. We have only had one issue since going and they corrected it immediately. There burgers are amazing. This is a must eat in Tampa... More

The burger was perfect. The fries were perfect. I tried the oak fire sauce and I wanted to take it home to use to cook. Hands down the best burger experience in Tampa.

We're from out of town & I had a taste for a burger. Saw all the good reviews online & decided to check it out. I had the ghost burger. It was huge & delicious, so were the sweet potato fries. There were plenty to share. The burger was perfectly cooked & the service was speedy. My husband had the... More

Having read reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to try the burgers at Oakley's Grille. We came out wishing we had found it sooner - what a great place! The owner greeted us both and genuinely wanted to make sure we enjoyed our meals. We both ordered the cheeseburger with blue cheese. It was amazing! The meat was so juicy and... More

We are always on the lookout for casual, non-chain eateries to try. Oakley's Grille has been on the radar for a while and we finally got a chance to check it out the other night. This is a small place in a strip shopping center that you normally wouldn't give a second look. That would be a mistake because Oakley... More

You don't expect anything but big chains in the New Tampa area, but Oakley's Grill is a bit of a diamond in the rough in this area. First of all, when you are walk in you are greeted by nice staff members which is a huge plus in my book, and when the owner is there he is completely friendly... More

We asked at our hotel for a restaurant that was not a chain. They suggested Oakley's. It was located less than a block from the hotel in a strip mall. The menu had a great variety of sandwich selections. Our group tried the fish and chips, blackened fish, club, Philly steak (just to name a few). All of the food... More
