Tasty BBQ, good service, great atmosphere

Dined here with friends on a Friday night about 8 30 pm. Place was busy but not 100% full. Some seats at counter at open front windows looking over out over Main St. Safety Harbor, near western end of Courtney Campbell Causeway WNW of Tampa.

Place was not busy, we did make reservations for a larger party. Waitresses were very nice. Meals were slow and not that good. I was surprised.

BBQ was decent. Meaning, it was good for the area we were in. I wouldn't drive out of my way to go here. Pulled pork and riblets tasted good but were a bit overdone. Good baked beans, macaroni salad. Service was better than food.

You have to understand what to expect - it's backyard bbq. You sit at picnic tables. You eat off of paper plates and your napkins are paper towels on a spindle at the table. That being said, we thought the food was quite good. I had never been there before and my daughter and I were trying to decide what... More

So we decided to try this wonderful staple in Safety Harbor, low in behold it was the worst bbq I have had behind sonny's! As we asked for a table the hostess was careless and rude, she sat us down at the terribly uncomfortable seating that is in the whole restaurant. Then she never bothered to tell the wait staff...

We chose to sit outside for the meal and eat at high top tables. The seat are horridly uncomfortable after a very short time. The BBQ ribs were dry, the BBQ sausage was terrible. Too smokey and had an odd taste. I don't think it was true BBQ smoke flavor. Service was slow and there were only other tables inside.... More

My wife and I both had the brisket sandwich... More

We came across Brady's by accident. We rarely turn down BBQ so we went in. It is very informal with picnic tables, bar and outdoor seating. We tried brisket and short ribs and baked beans. All was delicious and rich. Our waiter was a character. Safety Harbor is a pretty cool pace with enormous live oaks and a beautiful view... More

The people were pleasant, but the service was awful. I had the brisket and it was the only thing that was any good. There was a huge hair in my food and when I asked for another one, the server didn't apologize and just left it on the table. The collard greens tasted like tree leaves, twigs, and branches and...
