Great place to get a drink near the Riverwalk in downtown. Regular bar drinks, with a few craft been taps. Lots of tables all around. Worth a visit after a hockey game, concert, or if you're staying at one of the nearby hotels, like the Embassy Suites or Marriott Waterside.

This outdoor patio has a great view and a great place to have a few drinks with lunch. Not too much to pick from on the menu but we had burgers and wraps. Hit the spot if your looking for lunch or a mid afternoon snack.

Waited well over an hour for food after ordering. Had to flag the waitress down for another drink while waiting in 90 degrees. Waitress said "the manager might give you half off or something forwaitingsolong" Food arrived almost 90 minutes later and the fish sandwich was cold...and mean cold. That was it for me. Have it back and left. If... More

Right on the Riverwalk at river's edge. Don't get anything to eat, but a great spot for a beer if just relaxing.

Limited selection in food, but it was good - I had a hot dog served with bag of chips and a salad which was great - chick peas, cucumbers, mixed greens. Live music was a bonus and was very good - nice touch to the evening. Service was efficient.

Make sure during any trip to Tampa downtown or convention center, to stop by the Sail for a cocktail with a great view.

This is a great location on the bay, but we could not get anyone to wait on us. We even went to the bar area to let them know where we were seated on the patio.

We've been in Tampa numerous times and always make it a point to go here. The views are amazing, the atmosphere is great (live music Friday & Saturday night), drink specials and decent food. Right on the RiverWalk and a perfect place to people watch, hang out with friends, watch the river and relax.

You may have to be super observant to snag a table along the River Walk, at the Convention Center, but do it as it's worth it. We were surprised at the quality of the food here, although the menu options are limited. The drinks may be a little pricey, but yummy. And the servers are just plain terrific. They are... More
