We are moving out of state soon and I had one last chance to have lunch here. Came around 1pm on Tuesday. Sat at a small high top near the bar where you can order verses ordering in the line. Drink orders were taken fairly quickly but took a while to be delivered. We had to ask for Splenda numerous times before we got any. The burger was good but fell apart quickly. We ordered the crabcake po boy without tomatoes and onions and it came out with them. We spent most of our lunch with empty glasses. Overall the food was good as usual, but it was the worst service I have had there ever. Not the way I wanted to remember one of my favorite places.

BEST. Chicken Salad. EVER
BEST Cheeseburger. EVER
This is an order at the counter and sit down they bring the food to you place. Unless you sit at the full service bar, which we did not.
I told the nice lady that took our order that it was our first time there, she gave me a cupcake and a chocolate cookie that was like a chocolate melting cake filling. YUMMY!
We went at 2pm on a beautiful Saturday afternoon and the place was winding down from the lunch rush.
The breads and pizzas are on display and looked great.
We will go back and bring our friends.

This south Tampa restaurant is in a small shopping center. The parking lot crowd speaks for the popularity of this restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I have never had a bad meal here. Because it is so popular, it is also noisy at the peak times of day and evening. Nonetheless the food is fabulous and the service impeccable.

Great variety of dishes. Thin crest pizzas were delicious. Salmon over potatoes was also tasty. Bake foods were good too

Make a reservation if you want a table. It's busy and worth the wait. We did not have a reservation, so we sat at the bar. So glad because we had a great time. Friendly service, great food and wine. We will definitely go back.
