Was open for post-game feeding and watering near Amelie Arena on a Saturday night. The wait staff was very good and worked hard to keep things moving. Burgers, nachos, quesedillas, etcetera were unremarkable but still a decent option.

Stopped here after a wedding with a party of 30+ people - our server did an amazing job with all of us and was very friendly. Would definitely recommend this place for a large crowd.

We spent a few hours in Tampa before catching our flight, and enjoyed a tasty lunch at Champions Sports Bar. The food was tasty. I had the turkey blt wrap; my husband had the Cuban.

Food was your regular Applebee's kind of fair--nothing special or especially good. Seems to be a great place to watch sports

When we travel to Tampa we always look foreword to a meal here but the last two times noticed a few things: 1. the menu seems to have shrunk in the last two years, the wing count I believe went down one or two but same price, server was awesome but food very slow ( and they were not busy)....

We had a terrific Mahi Mahi sandwich with great service and T.V. everywhere. Our server (Christian) notices the excitement on our daughters face and spent extra attention with her… thanks!

Tai Chili wings are really good. Great service. Easy to get to from Arena for a pre-concert/game meal. Good choice of beers, both bottle & tap. HUGE TV's for viewing sports...........although there wasn't anything worth watching.

Thank rickkj1951
