What a great idea to put so many delicious restaurants, with some shopping, all in one location right along the river. You can’t make a mistake in selecting a good place to eat or drink and have fun sitting outside to watch a he boat...traffic, people watch or play games.More

This is a very nice indoor combined with open air collection of Walk up and Also sit down restaurants. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and we did use the facilities parking lot and were charged $10 a flat fee. They have tons of...interesting food options and the one that we eventually chose at Hemingway's was very good. It is right next to the river and overall just has a great feel. Unfortunately it's so popular it might be getting a little too busy for its own good from what I could see. Check it out, grab some food, and take a walk down the river to walk it off!More

Today Oct. 28th, was shocked at no more free parking on the property $20 or Valet$$, almost all meals $20+ with drink. It is fastly becoming NON-FAMILY- FRIENDLY, fortunately I can afford it,but don't plan to return soon, if I have to pay $20 to...park in a grass field and walk, that lot also doesn't have lighting.. a double negative!More

This s is a building that used to be a Tampa street car repair shop from the early 1900’s. They saved a lot of the original architecture. Basically it is an upscale food court. My opinion is to spend a bit more money and go...to a better restaurant. But, it is a part of Tampa’s history which is very interesting.More

Great place! Very large with numerous food options. Can get very crowded on weekends. Lots of seating inside and out. Live music outside on the lawn at the pier and also in some of the bars in the area. Very clean and organized. Weekends they...have different things going on like a car show, outside food trucks, local art etc. Worth a trip.More

Such a fun, young, local place to hang out. A variety of little food shops inside with outdoor courtyard along the river. There is a nice bar too, unfortunately I am forgetting the name of it, but the picnic tables outside with mist spraying was...perfect during the heatwave last month. Dogs allowed outside. Ate at Muchachas for birria tacos which I'd give 3/5.More

Disappointing experience for us. Didn’t live up to the hype as far as we were concerned. Expected more than a high priced glorified food court. Only 1 “shop” in the place. All eateries were very expensive. Was loud & noisy. I suppose if you only...wanted to hang out with a drink & people watch in a riverside location you would then enjoy this place. They could transform this place by adding local vendor kiosks around the grounds.More

I wanted to sit and read in the morning. I wanted to relax by the water. I can't relax with the loud music they play on the speakers. It would be better if it was instrumental that way you can read or talk to someone....Tooooo loud there.More

Perfect repurposed building that houses multiple eateries, coffee shops, etc. I ate at Kipos, the Mediterranean eatery. The gyro salad plate was delicious. Armature Works is adjacent to The Riverwalk, so after lunch I walked that trail and took in all the great scenery.
