We had never been to a Hooters, but we decided it was probably the best choice for us in Channelside. We agreed that it was a better burger than most places. The service was a little disorganized, but our server was very pleasant. I'm not a fan of their outfits, but we would probably return if we were in the area.

To be fair, I am not a big fan of chicken wings and there are a few other choices on the menu. Our server was new and I have alot of patience for someone learning. What bothered me was there were multiple problems with our orders and items were forgotten. There was never an apology for one single mistake and even when other servers stepped in to "help" they were not sorry either, just told us she's new. You can't eat a salad without silverware, so it would be best to bring it in time for the customer to eat with the rest of their party. I could not tell you whether the food was good or bad.........but I know it was not memorable. The poor service with no apologies left me not wanting to return.

Hooters is convenient to the Tampa Bay Times Forum so it was where we ate dinner before a Lightning game. The food was edible (chipotle garlic boneless wings and fries) and the service was quick. Be prepared for a wait on game night (ours was an hour starting at 5:00 for a 7:30 game). There aren't a whole lot of options in the Channelside area. Our server was wonderful, and I give a lot of credit to the servers and management for putting up with some of the customers that were there the night of 3/24.

While arriving in Tampa the day before a cruise, for the past 5 years we always stop in Hooters at Channelside. The restaurant gets it. Always clean, servers are friendly and attentive, food is always good, exactly what you expect. Many times an older franchise seems to forget that the food must stay consistent. We'll be back in Feb. 2015 as always.
