Such a wonderful place. Right on the river. You can come by boat from Hillsborough river or car. Food is good. Drinks are really really weak. Staff friendly.

I have eaten here several times, every time I'm in Tampa. It's on the river and you can sit outdoor or indoors, great food and wonderful service. I always get the blackened fish salad. There is also docks to park your boat.
