“Lunch at Courtside Grille”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

We haven't visited Courtside since the change in ownership. We decided to visit today for lunch with a coupon that we had and it was pretty good. We ordered the southwest chicken salad and the meatloaf with mashed potatoes. Both were fresh and tasty items. The meatloaf was moist with good flavor. The mashed potatoes fluffy and creamy. The salad had a good portion of chicken with a nice mix of black beans, peppers and tomatoes with crunchy tortilla strips.

“Great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is a great place for a fun dinner. The place is filled with televisions (of course), yet a person can still hear when someone else is talking. The service was excellent and the prices were good.

“Just "OK"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Growing bored with the other Tampa area "bar and grill" type chains, we decided to try Courtside Grill. The place looked crowded every time we drove by, we figured this must be a good sign.

On a recent Friday night visit, the Tampa location was filling fast (we arrived at @ 5:30 ish). Courtside has a fairly typical pub menu, nice variety of apps, salads and dinner selections. One barometer of any pub is Buffalo wings. We sampled some medium hot and garlic parmesan coated wings, chosing the breaded option. These were OK, but the breading was a bit too heavy which made them somewhat bland. The other app we tried was the hot pretzels with dipping sauces, these were good. On to the meals. We ordered these sandwiches: pulled pork, french dip with cheese, Italian combo sub. Pulled pork was probably the best of the three and was tasty. The French dip was a tad light on the beef and cheese. The Italian combo had sufficient "filling" but the sub roll was on the stale side. On the plus side, service was excellent and the prices are user freindly.

All things considered, there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason to go to Courtside over other area pub type establishments. We thought it was just "OK".

“Great food, ok service...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

I work in the building next to CG and some colleagues and I went there for a celebratory lunch. We were seated right away and unfortunately the AC was blasting cold air on us....ugh. Server was friendly and helpful, but she got my order wrong, which didnt help with our limited lunch hour. I wound up getting my meal after my table mates were half way done with theirs. I left half of my lunch there(it's hard to eat a warm toasted sandwich as leftover). Price was a bit high for a lunch. Nice atmosphere, though. Will probably go back for a happy hour.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We live in the area but never think to eat at Courtside Grille. We were not expecting anything special but were very pleasantly surprised. We both enjoyed our meals and the service was good.
