Description: Welcome to Tapping The Vine™… where you’ll hear conversations not televisions, and where the ambience is comfortable, easy going. Many of our guests tell us we have the best wine and some of the best food in Safety Harbor. Our new spring menu, created with passion by our Chefs, will delight your taste buds. As always, our many Gluten Free appetizers, entrées, and desserts are simply delicious. Our chefs can also create Vegan or Vegetarian dishes upon request, too. We can confidently meet most dietary needs, but please let us know when you make your reservation. Tapping The Vine™ is truly comfortable for your next date night, casual for a birthday outing, and special enough to impress anyone for a memorable anniversary dinner. We also adore canine kids, so bring them along for an evening on our pet friendly patio. We invite you to escape the hectic world. Rush is a music group, not a way to dine. Reservations are highly recommended, so please call or email us to reserve your table. See you soon!!

This is a little peal in the heart of safety harbor. They have a lovely casual outdoor dining area, and a comfortable, relaxed living room-like interior. Offering light plates with ample servings of: soups, salads, tapas, paninis, & deserts; including a wonderful beer and wine list. Weekly specials, entertainment, & special events. Their hours are irregular, and keep changing with the season, so check with them before you visit. Other than that, the proprietors are gracious, professional, & make you feel welcome and appreciated…. they are awesome, and (with the exception of the irregular hours) run a great establishment.

What is your pleasure? I like sweet fruity wines, and I can get most of what Florida has to offer and then some at this establishment. My wife and I tap dance over to Tapping the Vine once a week. She is a beer drinker and I am a wine drinker. Either Tuesday or Thursday evenings are our preferance because of the value specials. Tuesday has a featured dinner and wine selection that includes a desert. Thursday brings on assorted cheezes and crackers with a glass of wine. But...once a month we are there on Saturday mornings for a breakfast of banana pecan pancakes, beignets, and mimosas. We never miss out on the mimosas. The folks there are very friendly and try to make your dining and drinking experience enjoyable.

My wife and I stumbled onto this quaint establishment in Winter Haven (Shoppes at Millers Landing) while waiting on a nearby restaurant to open.
The owner was behind the bar and her husband was performing a brewed beverage survey. We were greeted in a warm manner and given the basic orientation of the locations of several wine types. We browsed the selection and happened upon a blueberry port and brought it to the owner with some questions. I never expected that the owner would take the time and allow us an actual tasting of that exact port along side several others as well as become part of the brewed beverage survey. Instead of spending only a few moments there, we sat and talked with the owner for over an hour while sampling the ports and maderas. We did purchase a bottle of both before we went to dinner. Very nice folks and a nice selection of moderately price wines. See this place out...you may stay for the desert wines....

The most interesting selection of wine and beer in Safety Harbor. The inside decor is boring and without atmosphere but they do have outside dinning which helps the attraction to eat there. There is a venue on the backside of building (not related to Tapping) that has live music - if that is going on then Tapping has much more atmosphere. The food is good and Wednesday they have a fix'd price dinner which is a super value.

Dear 2Cycle
Thank for your review and helpful notes.
We are continuing to re-decorate the restaurant and have made improvements to our special offers since you were here.
We have worked closely with our neighbors by sharing live entertainment and in other ways to allow better use of this older facility for guests.
Now that the summer heat is less, we will be starting our own outdoor live music on Thursday, October 4th with a local young duet performing "soft jazz"
Hopefully you'll be able to stop by and see the improvements soon.
Best regards,
