We, and our friends, have been to this Hooters several times. I always enjoy the really great service. The girls, not just the server, but whole staff, are there to help. I try something new each time from the menu, and it never disappoints. Food is not amazing, but I like the casual dining and sports theme with decent selection.... More

This is the 2nd time we have been here and the 2nd Hooters restaurant we have been too. It's not touristy and so you get a great service. All you can eat Chicken wings are to die for and Maranda was undoubtedly very perky and a very pleasant server. A*****. Would definitely recommend this restaurant here in Lakeland, Florida.

A change in ownership can have numerous effects on any food service establishment. In the case of Hooters, the effects seem more negative than positive. This particular location is one of the nicest and best designed we've visited. In regards to television viewing, there's not a bad seat in the house - and my negative comments are not directed at...

Ive been to many a Hooters because they are fairly consistant. This is by far miles ahead of others when it comes to the food and service. Ive even been to the orignal in Clearwater...so that says something. Manager Garrett is doing something right and other Hooters need to take note. Our server Kortlyn was AMAZING and super attentive!

We enjoyed an early dinner served by the lovely Sarah from the USF College of Engineering! We were on our way home from Walt Disney World & this is a fantastic halfway stop when you have done "The Mouse" & you're ready for some Hooters Girls! We love their appetizer of the Fried Pickles with a yummy spicy dipping sauce.... More

I stopped in while driving I4 back from Orlando to Tampa. The food was higher quality than I have gotten at a Hooters in a while and the staff was happy and attentive - they actually looked like they wanted to provide service.

Stopped here after arriving for Tigers spring training. We were seated right away by one of the friendly hostesses. At our seat there were many big screens visible for sports viewing. We were able to take in the Red Wings game. This was aSunday night and from what the server told us they had a busy weekend and were out... More

Stopped in for a late lunch while riding my hog from Orlando to Tampa. This fine establishment had motor parking!! Had the classic wings with BBQ sauce. Messy but yummy. Don't know where they get their mutant chickens from Cauthen wings were HUGE!! Oh and the scenery was nice too. And lots of TVs.
