Review: Every time we go here everyone is super friendly. All 5 of our reviewers gave the service a 5/5! The food was amazing as you would expect with the amazing pictures posted on their FB page. Relatively small menu but top notch. Sometimes less is more. We might have found a staple for Tacos in our Tampa Bay. So good!

Review: The food is amazing. It's fresh and has the ability to touch each taste bud in your mouth. Try the Ahi Stack, to say you never want it to end is an understatement. The staff is what you would look for in a upscale restaurant and some. Approachable, attentive and friendly. Overall hands down one of the best places in Tampa.

Review: Everyone was extremely nice from the moment we stepped in. Daily Eats has all the makings and feels of a diner and gives you the ambiance of a small hometown. Our food came out fast even though it was packed house. The food was packed with freshness and flavor. You can taste the quality ingredients.

Atmosphere: Upscale Trendy
Review: Walking in the rustic atmosphere makes you feel that you are about to try something different. We were seated fairly quickly no waits. The food was something out of the Chefs imagination. We all tried something that we have not tried before. Can get on the pricey side, but worth it. Try the King Crab Dumplings, you won't be disappointed. The staff was great and on top of things. Overall we were extremely pleased.

Review: Social setting with lots to offer. The atmosphere has that trendy vibe to it, but everything is kept in a social setting. The food offering is small plates to share, so it's a fun group setting for everyone to share and converse. The food was bursting with flavor. We had about six people in both of our reviews, and there was enough to go around. Come for the food stay for the atmosphere.

Place: Fly Bar
Atmosphere: Pioneer Social
Review: Fly Bar has been around for a little while, and the food and atmosphere are the real reasons why. It's a type of place that you can find any genre of personalities. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. A great place to meetup and enjoy a good dinner with friends. The food is great and if you are a person who likes cheese, make sure you get the Mac & Cheese.

Place: Cafe Ponte
Food: French American
Atmosphere: Casual Upscale
Review: When you walk in the first word that comes to is refined. The atmosphere is very inviting. You can see many business professionals meeting with each other, or groups on their lunch break. Both times we visited it was always busy. The food does not fall short of the expectations of someone that has been picked by Emerald Legasi. Chilean Sea Bass is the choice here.

Review: Rumba has an awesome mix of good music and good food. Live music outside on the patio on the summer nights was a plus. They have a good amount of drinks to choose from. They are minutes from Clearwater Beach, so the beach theme is implemented throughout the restaurant. Let's not forget the real reason why we visit this place once a month, the food. If you need to try something, make it the crab cakes.

Review: Our seats had an amazing view of Old Tampa Bay. Being it was in the Hyatt Hotel, the customer service was already at the highest standards. We were welcomed and greeted promptly. Our server was attentive and never missed a beat. The food was well prepared. It was almost as the Chef made each dish with a special touch. One of the best well prepared swordfish, hands down!

Place: Bob Heilmans Beachcombers
Review: From the moment you walk into Beachcombers, the service stands out, no wonder they have been here since 1948. Food is Fresh, and every bite needs a second for you to take it in. Make sure you try whatever is in season from the stone crabs to the Chilean sea bass. Great atmosphere, even better service, and even better food. Perfect special dinner night.

Place: Clear Sky Cafe (SPOTLIGHT)
Food: American Fusion
Review: We went to Clear Sky on a whim, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is located on the famous Mandalay Ave. in Clearwater Beach. We opted to sit inside and were greeted instantly. The food is exactly what you would want something so close to the beach, fresh and cooked correctly. All dishes were seasoned correctly. The atmosphere is casual and inviting. Defiantly a hidden gem.
