Great burgers, the nachos were plentiful and good, simple outside deck to sit. We really liked it, the staff was really nice, order at the bar and pay cash, then get your food served and enjoy.

We hiked a few blocks on a break from our conference because we'd heard so much about the crunchy group sandwich. The Tavern is cool—right by the campus, rough and tumble, and fun. But they were out of grouper! And they went into great detail...More

We went for lunch today and they were just filleting whole grouper, both had the grilled grouper freshest and best we have ever had. Tom the owner is very friendly and has a great place.

This little tavern serves up a fresh-off-the-boat, scrumptious grouper platter that had me in bliss this past Friday night. I had it cooked crusted style and it's served as a large portion along with hot, delicious fries that were done perfectly (not greasy at all)...More

This small, unpretentious place is on the campus of USFSP. My nephew was doing an internship at the university this summer and recommended we try the grilled grouper sandwich. Talk about FRESH and delicious -- probably the best I have ever eaten. Great homemade potato...More

Since that's their specialty, I can't imagine they would. I haven't seen any review that indicated it being unavailable. A call ahead wouldn't be amiss if you're concerned. You can probably even preorder....
