“Great Lunch and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2012

I had a great lunch here recently. I ordered the Turkey Club with Yellow Rice and Beans. The sandwich came on toasted whole wheat, was huge, with bacon, avocado spread, and melted jack. WOW! Great Sandwich! The yellow rice and beans came out steaming hot and was also fantastic!

My server was very attentive and the music they were playing was great.

Top notch place that looks like they go the extra mile on food. I will be back!!!

“One of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

This is definately one of the best restaurants in Ybor (even Tampa in general). They have a very generous variety of house brewed beers as well as a full bar. The food here is great, and we've rarely been disappointed (my husband was not big on the grilled sausage and rigatoni pasta ). As a sort of litmus test you might ask yourself "Would this probably go good with a beer?" If the answer is "Yes" you should have no problems. This works, by the way, even if you don't drink beer. In the above example, he agreed that creamy tomato pasta dish was a silly choice (esp. for someone who doesn't really like to eat out italian food)

The battered pickle spears, fries, onion rings, shephards pie, and fish and chips can all be personally vouched for as being delicious.

“Nothing like beer cheese soup!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

Hadn't been to Tampa in years, didn't know TBBC had relocated next to Muvico Theater in Yboy City. I grabbed some beer cheese soup to go, yum~ Went back the next day to get some more. This place is sooo cool. You know when you walk into a restaurant, and it's always busy and warm feeling, the food is good. They brew their own beer, good stuff. They have the sample platters of beer, etc Feels good inside. The outside bar has cocktail tables and patio restaurant, misters and all. Food is fresh and tasty. I may become a regular during my stay here ;}

“Will go back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

My husband had seen a review of this place on the food network so we booked ahead when we were in town for spring training. The experience was terrific. Both the food (for those of us who major on that) and the beer (for those who care) was wonderful. The wait staff also helped to make it a really enjoyable outing.
