“Great beer great service great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here today and were very happy with everything. Atmosphere is great, beer outstanding and food even more.
Will definitely be back. We live in SW Florida and it is about two hours away. Worth the trip.

“Went for the Meatloaf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

And we were not disappointed. I am not a big meatloaf fan, but I loved theirs. Enjoyed their wings too as well as sitting outside on a great January night.

“WOW, are you in for a treat here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The only reason I gave them 4 stars, is because nobody in my party of three liked any of their beers, and we did buy the sampler. They were bitter or had bad flavors. NOW FOR THE FOOD!!! We each tasted everything brought to the table. 1. Soft pretzels with mustard/cheese/butter type dips were EXCELLENT! 2. The french bread with a cheese dip EXCELLENT...the softly baked bread and dip as tasty as ever ! 3. The Caesar Salad EXCELLENT...tasty and tangy, the way it should be. 4. The mussels EXCELLENT with an oriental flavor. 5. the meatloaf...EXCELLENT, and not like any meatloaf I've tasted (reviewed by Guy Fieiri on TV!) with a mashed potato inside & a mushroom gravy that can't be beat, wrapped in bacon. 6. The shepherd's pie was EXCELLENT. 7. The Gumbo soup was good too, but I wasn't that crazy about the Mexican-food-flavor of it.Then for dessert, the apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream..EXCELLENT. All the different flavors were absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere is fun too, and they are always busy. I was so impressed with the food and service, I left a rather large tip. Ybor City is fun, but stay away after the sun goes down. It can be a dangerous area. Do NOT miss this restaurant!

“Great pre-game meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Went here before a hockey game...prompt and friendly service, strong pour on the mixed drinks. Chicken wings were excellent, and big. I had the meatloaf which was encased in bacon on a bed of mashed potatoes, large portion, crispy onion ring topping, this was delicious. My wife had the salmon, cooked properly, large portion, very tasty. The house-brewed beer was also a winner. We will be back for sure.
