We went to this restaurant on a Thursday night at around 9pm, it wasn't very busy as it made the restaurant lack a little in atmosphere.
We were sat in a table in front of the window which was great for people watching on the busy streets of Ybor.
Our server was a lovely guy from Colorado, he could not have been anymore helpful with both our meal choices and knowledge of the local area.
To start we both had the shrimp in garlic butter, best shrimp we had had!
To follow we both chose dif cuts of steak, both cooked as we had requested.

All in all, we had a great night, only let down was the lack of atmosphere, so we took our drinks outside onto the street after eating, was brilliant to take in the sights and sounds of Ybor.
We would def go back if we are in Tampa again!

We ate at the carne chophouse last Saturday and had truly excellent service. Lucky for us they have a prime rib special on Saturdays which includes salad or soup, prime rib and a side for the outstanding price of $9.99. What a fabulous deal!!! As if that wasn't enough they also have $2.00 findlandia martinis. Life doesn't get any better! Great venue and a strolling guitar player. All in all a truly great dining experience!!!

The restaurant though had a pleasant atmosphere and a guitar soloist playing in the background (a bit loud). The only time we could speck and hear without efforts was when the soloist was taking a break. Our surfer was attentive and we were not rushed at all. The onion soups and Caesar salad were very good. An then, down it went. I ordered the pork chops and my wife the sirloin, my causing ordered a filet mignon. No one of us were impressed. The filet mignon was overcooked, dried and hard. My chops and sirloin were coked well but no flavor but both dried. My chops came covered with "cinnamon" apples, that were totally tasteless. My causing had her filet sent back, "two minutes" later a new mignon arrived at the table. I am sure some other customer lost his/her filet. Even do our server warned us that the plates were hot, no so our meats, they were at best room temperature. No one in my group of four was impressed. We all decided not to stay for dessert.

$9.95 for prime rib, salad, and side? Absolutely. And it is good prime rib, not what you would expect for that price.

A friend recommended this place. Started by asking the waitress what was the specialty. Filet Mignon. Asked for the medium well and received the steak with burned edges. Thank God for A1 because this $30 steak did only tasted like smoked meat. My wife’s Rib Eye looked amazing but guess the cook was out of salt. Don't want to spend to much writing about the steak and vegetable soup because it was another disappointment. The waitress recommended the Cesar salad with anchovies. UFFFF!! What a mistake.

In summary, will not spend a dollar at this place again
