We stopped in one night late while in Tampa on business. The food was excellent. We had dirty rice and pulled pork sandwiches. The rice melted in your mouth - just delicious. It was super clean too. I would recommend to anyone in Tampa.

If you have to stay in a hotel the day before your cruise leaves from Tampa, walk a few blocks to The Metro, restaurant - bar. Great menu and excellent food. Clean appearance but you may find the atmosphere unusual.
