“Good Chicken Salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We ate on the porch - lovely to watch the city go by and list to the trivia contest. The chicken salad was very good.

“Dinner and Sunday buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Stopping in St. Petersburg for an overnight stay, we happened upon the Tap Room while staying at a hotel less than a block away. Now we wish we would have stayed at the Hollander. Went there for a late dinner on a Saturday. My husband had the grouper sandwich; he says it's the best he's ever had, and only $10! I had a cuban quesadilla appetizer and it was delicious. Drinks were good; service was great. They had a singer there from 7-10 p.m. My husband enjoyed the architecture inside the Tap Room, which is just a dining area with bar attached to the hotel lobby. They also have a bakery/coffee shop. Everything looked delicious. Decided to go to the Sunday breakfast buffet. Again, $10 for all you can eat. The bacon was perfectly cooked; sausage gravy and biscuits yummy. You could even get an omelet cooked to order. Amazing food; friendly people; nice surroundings. We will definitely return while in the area. The manager, Nick, even stopped at our table to introduce himself and ask how everything was. Nice touch.

“Time Travelers were here for the Bacon Bloody Mary's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Love this place. Hang out and watch the world saunter by on the wide glamouos veranda or hop a stool and bar fly with some great craft brew and excellent servers. You can't go wrong if you choose to squander a few hours here. The prices are reasonable and the cocktails are good. The tap room is an eclectic mix of style.... Seems like it was decorated by very buzzed color blind time traveler and I say this as a compliment cause it all somehow works and it's just so cute.. The blood Mary bar provides a myriad of fun ingredient to mix in like pepperoncinis, basil, olives and even bacon! Michelle provides a cheery smile, great local advice and kicking cocktails. Can get busy at night with the live music so get there early for a seat. Have stayed in the hotel too and would highly recommend too. The rooms were adorable and immaculate

“Our home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We love the Hollander Hotel and the restaurant/bar. The staff is beyond compare. We visit so often they are like family. Michelle at the bar is great and makes some awesome cocktails. Wih 21 Craft beers to choose from how can you go wrong? The food is also top notch. The $10. grouper sandwich is always a hit. The onion rings and fried mac and cheese are some of our favorite snacks. The dinner specials are always very good!
Thanks to Will, Nick and Mike our stay is always comfortable and pleasant. So pleasant, that we chose this hotel to be married in at Christmas of last year! It couldn't have been more intimate, relaxed and pleasant!
We will stay at the Hollander for many years to come!

“Being generous”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

After two visits, we're taking the Tap Room off our list. While we appreciated the attentive service, the two meals have been underwhelming at best. Due to the noise inside we elected to go with outdoor seating, which in turn we were awarded the extra benefit of enjoying cigarette smoke with our meal from other inconsiderate dinners.

First, the municipality of St Petersburg should share in the blame for remaining with a '70s style of government and allowing restaurants to still accommodate this neanderthal public habit. Second, the Tap Room management should receive this low rating for allowing diners to do it in their establishment.
