My husband and I were there for a drink last night and had a great time.
We didn't order food, but it smells good.The drinks were pretty good. The band (DrC and the Cheaters) was excellent!
VERY casual and relaxed atmosphere.

We usually stop for lunch after hitting the beach. It is great to chill outside and watch the river. You don’t have to dress or look pretty. It is a local hangout but everyone is welcome. Good tunes.

It is basically bar food but not like some places where everything is overly salted. We normally get oysters, burgers, or fish sandwiches all of which we really like.

We’ve been here 3 or 4 times over the last couple of years but have never managed to find the place without getting lost first.

There aren't too many hole in the wall places like this left in Tampa. Decent bar food (wings, fish sandwiches), cheap beer, and incredible people watching. You can also boat up if you're on the Hillsborough River.
