“Careful of the Chicken Wings”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

I did not want anything fancy (felt like a roadhouse style) and at my urging we stopped in for lunch and thought I'd try the chicken wings (I have had the original Buffalo chicken wings and really do like them) while others had different items. I have been in Hooters once before (not enough to write about) so I had some idea what to expect.

None of us were satisfied with the food for various reason, as for the chicken wings, (not Buffalo) they were breaded (as requested) which it turned out helped to contain the grease inside. Upon biting into a wing it would squirt out the excess grease in sufficient quantity that others at the table noticed and this was repeated several times.

My error was finishing the wings, for which I paid the price for a couple of days. Not sure if it was the grease or if the wings were completely cooked.

The decor was a bit dated and could do with a update or a good clean up.

There are other eateries in the area so you may be advised to reconsider but if roadhouse is you choice .... good luck. As for us, we'll pass on Hooters

“It was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

We went on a Friday night and it was crowded, but this was expected from us. We were seated promptly and our trainer waitress greeted us within a reasonable time frame. I ordered the blackened grouper sandwich with some Thai chili boneless wings. I can tell you that the fish sandwich was extremely fishy and wasn't blackened to my knowledge. The boneless wings were dry and not very flavorful at all. My wife had the original wings and my son the crab legs; they had no issues with their meal. I mentioned this to my waitress and she apologized but said "I didn't cook 'em, so all I can do is say I'm sorry". No manager in site either, so I didn't stick around to tell them.

“Ridiculous manager behavior”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013 via mobile

I went to Hooters in college with my hubby (then boyfriend) to watch sports & have grouper sandwiches/wings so we stopped in here for nostalgia's sake.

I put in the food order and sat at the bar to wait with a beer. There were some really idiotic fellas being very loud at the bar, but they didn't stay long -thankfully. As soon as they left the manager came over to the bartender and chewed her out for not throwing the fellas out. He said that customers were complaining. Okay, if that was the case then why didn't he come over and say something? As the manager, that is HIS job and shouldn't be left to the tiny, scantily-clad bartender (who was really sweet). Also, if he wanted to reprimand her for anything he should have called her aside and not done it in front of other customers. It really seemed like a ridiculous power trip. I actually wrote to them on their web contact form about it as I sat there. It took a few days for them to get back to me but they promised to address it.

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

This is the best Mahi Mahi sandwich in the entire pinellas county. I have lived here since 1981. Blackened Mahi Mahi. We have always had great service and we come here all the time even though we could go to Berns Steak House instead. Their chef salad is also amazing as well and the Buffalo Chicken sandwich. I could go on and on. This place is great !! Positive attitudes from the staff as well.

“Always the same...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012 via mobile

Food was ok, nothing to brag about. Not really sure why I stopped in here to eat. The service from the bartender was slow but okay since I'm not in a hurry. The food runner just about dropped my plate in my lap. All she said was woops and walked away....
