Every time I am i Tampa, I have to make a trip to Rusty Bellies. Always great fresh seafood. The outside deck and bar have great relaxing views of the mangroves. The crab cakes and the scallops are the bomb, but the hush puppies are the best anywhere. I can't wait to go back

Hubby got the all-you-can-eat shrimp. Fried was deelish, steamed was not seasoned, so very ordinary. The cole slaw was probably from Gordon's Foods, def not homemade. I got the blackened Mahi, which was nothing special. There is no view of the water here. The only possibility would be on the deck, but there was a shrimp boat docked that blocked... More

We were in a group of 24 and although we arrived a bit later than our reservations our tables on the deck were held for us even though there was quite a waiting line for others to get seats. The food selections were varied and all sounded good. I had a large bowl of Gumbo and a half order of... More

Stopped here while traveling through the area on vacation. The only word I have for this great stop on the water is perfection. Get the crab cakes as a starter, then try out their seafood gumbo, and top that off with their fresh blackened grouper and you have a dining trifecta right in front of you. You will not be... More

We went with my brother and SIL who had been there before. We went on a Friday so it was pretty crowded, although we didn't have to wait long for a table on the deck. The restaurant is right on the Anclote river. The food was good, prices were average, and the service was good. We've wanted to go back... More

Do you like seafood? Do you like fresh seafood? Go here. Some of the best seafood I have ever had. Two things to definitely try: All you can eat shrimp, and the grouper. They have a mixed up dish with grouper and shrimp which is excellent. Also several grouper sandwiches. Have not had a bad meal yet. However, with that... More

I enjoyed a lunch out on the deck of this excellent restaurant, entertained by many types of birds as they eagerly awaited the return of the fishermen. The food and prices are excellent, with fun menu names and descriptions. The restaurant is located on the very end of the sponge docks, overlooking a shipyard which is intriguing in itself. There...
