I got there at 3:10 on a Saturday afternoon, sat near the stage of live performers. No one ever came to to my table. No water, no menu, zip. I went onstage about 4:30, and my set ended at 5:00. I immediately go find a waitress, and ask her to come take my order. She said okay, but never came.... More

The food was fantastic (burgers and flatbreads). We were downstairs near the bar so it was a little loud but we were seated after 5 min of waiting on a Saturday when they originally said 45 min so nothing to complain about! Would definitely go back.

Two couples who eat at different restaurants on a regular basis. Arrived @ 6:00pm on a Sunday evening - no wait for eating inside.

For me - I had... More

Friendly staff, casual atmosphere and their food tastes like Mama is in the back cooking! Although, I've tried quite a few dishes, I seem to be stuck on the Porch Burger. A hand-packed patty with lots of flavor that comes with homemade fries cooked in peanut oil. I'd also recommend their 'Plain Ole Steak', wings or Mahi Mahi. I hear... More

The food here is very good and the beer selection is nice. The hurgers are solid and in temperate weather eating on the porch is very nice. Unfortunately the service is spotty. I think the problem might be a slow kitchen. Skip the margaritas. The drink is watery and tastes like there is little to no tequila in the mix.... More

Went with my family and was very pleased with the food. My daughter lives in Tampa and this is one of her favorite places. Service was a bit slow because of the crowd but the food was worth the wait. I enjoyed the meatloaf and my daughter had the Vegetarian Lasagna and my wife had the Thai Chicken Salad. Both... More
