    Possibly the best restaurant in Tampa for foodie style dining with great drinks and beers. The atmosphere is only topped by the food. Recommended on every level. Very busy at peak times.

    The "Good Burger" is delicious!! (Shoutout to all the 90's kids!) I do wish they had more gluten free/vegan combinations, but I will keep coming back either way! It's all about the ambiance!

    Finally a place in FL with culture. Pair that with the soul food, artwork and good tunes and it makes this bar the best thing Tampa has going for it.
