We had heard good things about this place, got a coupon and decided to try it.
The best thing we can say is we only wasted the price of the coupon to find out that this place is a total dive. It is possibly the worst looking place in Tampa. It looks like a rundown shack in the middle of a swamp. And it smells worse.
The parking is a complete nightmare. If you go here you must hate your car. There are 3 spots in front and then a narrow alley alongside of the dive. If you venture into the alley you find a sign saying to park across the street. It might be nice if this sign was someplace where you could see it before trying to navigate the alley and tiny lot behind the dive.
So we then attempted to get a seat. You are supposed to wait to be seated. We waited 5 minutes and watched two servers wonder around the porch aimlessly without bothering to acknowledge we were even there. Once was carrying around condiments and appeared lost.
At that point we decided it was best to just leave.
If it looks that bad, parking is that bad, smells that bad and service is that bad we didn’t see a reason to stay.
I would rate it lower except it is possible if you actually get seated and don’t mind the smell the food might be ok.
