Description: We are omnivores — carnivorous, chocolate-loving, bacon-hoarding, wineauxs, beer geeks, curd nerds and yes, even vegetarians. Together we are shamelessly unapologetic flavor crusaders and Datz is our playground. An american gastropub + market dishing up regional comfort food favorites generously paired with craft beer, boutique wine and artisanal cheese. Served with ample sides of culinary education and entertainment in a spirited, ever-evolving environment. After all, we believe ordinary belongs in the dictionary, not in a restaurant. Especially ours.

Datz's was a really enjoyable night out. The atmosphere was lively and service, after the wait for a table, was efficient. The food was tasty and quite different to anything I've had before. The only disappointment was that I didn't get to sample more of the menu.

Don't order the eggs for breakfast Mexican entree....mostly all rice and beans with little flavor, little meat and badly overcooked eggs....huge, but not a good recipe...it sounded good on the menu but sent it back the first time because the 2 fried eggs on top were so badly overcooked and hard...they made it fresh with over easy eggs but then the whole thing was blah rice and beans....recipe needs to be reworked.Then charging $15 for mostly rice and beans?...rip off

Meatloaf plate is ok....cute idea but just a block of stuffed meatloaf, plain mashed and peas is just blah to me...meatloaf could be sliced with mac and cheese inside with a creamier mash and skip the peas please....maybe a flavorful parmesan baked tomato? or butter/seasoned fresh green beans?....And charging $18 for this...way overpriced

Shrimp and grits was good....pretzel bites were really good, their potato chips are excellent...and portions are huge...

We heard it get's very crowded on Sunday's so my husband and I where there shortly after they opened and got a table right away. The restaurant is really a unique place! The way they built Datz is very cool!! They have upstairs, downstairs and also outside seating. We started out with monkey bread that was so gooey and sweet. Yum! Then we had an bacon and cheese omelet that was so fluffy it looked like a pasty puff. They also served us potatoes and toast which rounded off this great breakfast! The service was top notch! I will come back here next time I am in Tampa to try their lunch.

This is a place we always bring friends from out of town. The food is outstanding and there is a great selection of beers for the beer lover. Service has always been great. We have been when it is very crowded but have discovered their web site will tell you approximately how long the wait is. You can also make reservations on Open Table. Carolina on my Mind is a great pulled pork sandwich.

Great variety. Everything is always first-class in terms of taste. Humungous desserts to die for. A little noisy but other than that, a super place.
