Me and the girlfriend love this place. Ask for Marc, the Bartender when you come. He's extremely friendly and will get your drinks fast and if you ask him to be creative, he can whip up something tasty. Food is great. Portobello burger is what she loves...I don't know how you call it a burger though. I'll stick to the... More

Atmosphere great. Went to hear Irish music on a Saturday eve. Service was fantastic, friendly and fast. Disappointed in the nachos. Hardly any cheese and very small amount of beef topping. Burgers were tasty and cooked as ordered. The side of chips were nice, but really needs seasoning.

I was escorted out purely on their basis for a lack of cohesive rules on dress code. I was allowed in but then told to leave because I had a tank top on. Does that really matter?

Went here for drinks after a business meeting. Located in a neat district of Tampa with lots to do around it. They had happy hour prices, which is always appreciated. Nice traditional pub scene in indoors matched by a nice outdoor bar scene. We left for dinner and returned around 1000 at night to get our car and it was... More

This is definitely a locals spot. Very large establishment with outdoor bars. But it's very dark inside and the music is cranked up.

We have a beautiful outdoor area that is sunlit and has less of a pub atmosphere. Great place to enjoy people watching and outdoor dining. We hope you will come back in again soon! More

Fun atmosphere and good drink selection. We watched the final four games here. It was a good place to watch them as it wasn't as busy as the sports bars. They as had a cool walk-up bar along the sidewalk.

They have decent food though service can be slow sometimes. Their $10 Friday night all you can drink deal is unbeatable.

I've been here several times with friends. The staff is always great and so is the food. They have a great selection of food so there's something for everyone. They're usually showing games on the tv and they have trivia on certain nights. This is a fun place to gather with friends for a laid back evening.

Awesome staff, great location, and all EPL games televised. Great spot to have a few drinks before a show at Jannus Landing. Top notch pub...........even if it is a Liverpool pub.
