This was a first time visit for a group of us from a Gasparilla Krewe that frequently meet for dinner at restaurants all around the Tampa Bay area. It's highly likely that we will never meet here again.
Not that the experience was a total bust; the food is pretty good. I had the spicy shrimp tacos which were excellent. A few others seemed to enjoy their meal as well. The issue was that it took a while for the entrees to come to the table and, when they did, it was a few at a time so that some people had just about finished their meal by the time other's meals had arrived. Appetizers came with the meal or later rather than before the meal. Warning: the key lime pie is not real key lime pie; this is the first time I have encountered this in a Florida restaurant.
The service was "fire and forget". We had to wave down the waiter to get refills or second drinks or beers and then the return was long. Beer orders got mixed up; one of us ordered the brown ale and got a pale ale instead and waited a while for the right one. Those that ordered the Fluffernutter said it was awesome. I guess the mixed drinks were okay but there weren't any comments on how good they were like what typically happens when we go to other places. What was bizarre was that we were at "Florida Brewing Company" and the waiter wasn't enthusiastic or knowledgeable about the ales and beers.
We are a rather boisterous, fun-loving bunch that is used to having cheerful and fun waiters and waitresses, even at big chain restaurants; we agreed that the service here was clinical at best. A few of us agreed that with all of the great restaurants and venues and breweries in the Tampa Bay area, if this one was down amongst the others in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties it wouldn't survive.

We had reservations and were seated quickly. Beer took a while to come out and was a bit pricey for a local draft beer but tasted good. Spicy shrimp tacos were not that spicy but weren't bad. Lobster macaroni and cheese wasn't hot. There was a decent amount of lobster but when the meal is lukewarm it's a little disappointing. Burgers and fries were really large and tasted good. We sat inside as it was hot out but maybe we'll come back and sit outside when the weather cools down. Overall, if they can fix some of the timing issues with beers sitting on the bar waiting to be picked up and the food sitting too long before it's brought out, they may be able to grow the business.

Expansive building formerly a sport club now a large brewery with large areas both indoors and outdoors to eat and drink. They have a decent selection of wines and mixed drinks but most people are there for the extensive list of beers on tap, all produced here. You can also order the beers in cans to take home.
The food offerings are interesting and for the most part well done. The wait staff was attentive and very accommodating. The only downside to the evening was the house made veggie burger which frankly was basically inedible. I don’t know if it wasn’t cooked properly ( it was the consistency of raw ground beef) or was simply supposed to be a pasty goo. Given the availability of superb veggie burgers everywhere made by Impossible Foods or Beyond Meat for example I would strongly urge management to consider one of these as a replacement. That said, the other meals we had were tasty and well done. That in combination with freshly made beer on tap in a pleasant and convivial setting means we will return again. Recommended.

Florida Ave Brewing Company hosted our company’s Annual Holiday Social a few weeks ago. Amanda Darby and her team did an amazing job!
They were creative in complying to the CDC guidelines and their Brewers Hall was a perfect space for our team. They had no problem adding our company logo to the digital bar signage and accommodated a nice slide show on their projection screen. The ladies of our group thoroughly enjoyed having access to private restrooms and the free valet parking was a pleasant bonus!
We will definitely keep Florida Ave Brewing Company in mind when hosting company non holiday meetings as well!

This was my first visit And just a few days before Christmas. It was a brisk but lovely day, and since we hadn’t made a reservation we decided to try mid afternoons for an early dinner and some brews outside. We were greeted promptly and escorted through the building to a nice outdoor patio area. The tables were mostly filled even at 3:30pm and the hostess asked if either of the 2 tables were acceptable. They are spaced far enough apart that we did feel safe. Our server soon greeted us and was very helpful in answering questions. Our guest, my husband and myself chose 3 different ones brews and we liked them all. We weren’t immediately ready to order food and when we asked for menus these must be viewed on your phone. Honestly, at least offer a paper menu so the entire selection can be reference with out screening back and forth, especially for those of us who do not usually do heavy reading on our phones. Even a tablet would have made it easier! We found it had also been shift change and while our new server answered questions she wasn’t nearly as personable as our first one, even though some of the tables were now empty. For that and no menus they lost what otherwise would have been a 5th star.

My husband ordered the prime rib cheese steak sandwich, ate the whole thing without sharing a bite and decided it was his favorite item on the menu. My guest and I split the Buffalo chicken flatbread and cheese steak egg rolls. We enjoyed both. Thought the egg rolls were an interesting and different item. The flatbread was good, and spicy enough for us but actually a bit mild. Would be nice if it could vary from mild to hot, as wings often are.

Rather expensive for rather average food and drinks. Beers are $6.5 to $7. Food is not cheap. Burgers are almost $16. The atmosphere is nice but it’s just a little overpriced for what you get in my opinion. A pretzel with cheese is almost $11. My wife and I had a $72 bill (this included the tip) and I feel I could have gotten a better meal.

The menu is very inviting. The waitress service was okay, but not great. Once we ordered our meal it went down hill from there. I ordered beef BBQ, two others just wanted wings, and the other a toasted cheese sandwich (clearly the easiest thing on the menu to cook -right?). We’ll we waited an inordinate amount of time to start getting our food- the two orders for wings came out then. About 10 minutes later the beef BBQ scones out and wasn’t really hot. Then another ten minutes later the toasted cheese sandwich came out with one side burnt.

There is something structurally wrong with there setup there. Why did this happen? Not the server’s fault. Something’s amiss in the kitchen to the runners that provide the food.

I just held a small work gathering there and the place was phenomenal. The trays of finger foods were delicious and the drinks were great. The service was great, the bartender and the servers were all so friendly and polite! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to host a small party or work get together. The have an outside sitting area that is a perfect spot for your small get togethers.

FABC hosted our Corvette club, providing good food, professional and personable staff, and a fun atmosphere. Rendy, our server, answered all our questions, regarding the menu entrees, and all the different craft beers offered. If you drink beer, I'm sure you will find a favorite, amongst the large selection. Overall, our Club had a great time, and will return again. Hope this helps with your first visit.
