Great atmosphere with outstanding beer selections. Servers are attentive without being overbearing.
Skipper's has definitely cleaned up a bit since I first moved to town, and has gotten some needed and deserved national attention. What you expect it to be from the outside is pretty accurate to what you're going to get inside. Most of the food is very good, but their tendency to offer Basa and other Chinese or asian imported fish, when we're sitting on Tampa Bay is extremely confusing and I hate to say it: a major turn off. The fried food here is good, and the oyster bar is a trip back in time. Concerts are often and many old guard blues and jam musicians have played through the place.
Probably my favorite place in Tampa. Thursdays are the best. Cheap wings and beer and fantastic jams :p
Great food! Good service!
I visited here a few weeks ago because i knew of the owner from a club i frequented in my teenage years that i enjoyed. My wife and i went on a friday when they advertise all you can drink for 10 or 20 bucks.I opted to pay 20 for the better liquor. after my first cup I knew i was not drinking what i had ordered which was supose to be hennesy. I noticed a few customers to the side of me at the bar becoming extremely ill so i started to speak with them and learned that they too fely that they were not drinking what they had ordered and that it had actuall been substituted with a cheaper alternative which was making everyone ill. several people actually vomitted it al back up right at the bar. the owner was no where to found that night. On the following weekend I went back to the club to see if they were some explination for swapping the alcohol ain patrons drinks. when i approached the club i noticed the owner out front so i attempted to tell him my experience, he immediate became aggressive and start hollering and screaming at me that i didnt have to come there and that i had no right to complain. to make a long story short you should avoid green gatores by any means. for me someone swapping the liquor you order for a cheaper alternative is the same as poisioning someone. this place is a dump with unprofessional owners and workers. there a million better options in the bay area
Staff is incompetent. Food is horrible, it tastes like frozen meals heated in a microwave. It takes forever to get a drink, a good 20 to 30 minutes standing at the bar even when it is not even that crowded. The beer selection is extremely limited and the beer is flat so you have to order a bottle or can beer. They give you your drink in a mini sized cup, so you have to drink liquor, instead of beer, in order to get your money's worth. They also re-use that same cheap plastic mini cup every time you order a drink, instead of giving you a fresh cup.The bar tenders are not friendly.The bathrooms are disgusting and they have a bathroom attendant that you feel obligated to tip every time you use their disgusting bathrooms. I will NEVER go back to this establishment, don't waste your time. Hopefully they will go out of business soon.
The food was excellent, I was pleasantly surprised!! I had the pasta carbonara with blackened chicken, it was super fresh and tasty.
THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLE, DO NOT GO THERE!!! Our server took 30 minutes to greet us, and had no personality. Our food took 40-50minutes to come out and when It finally did half of our order was missing. My Steak was overcooked and reminded me of chewing on leather.... We asked for the manager several times but he never made it over.... We left angry and still hungry.... Isn't the whole objective of dining out to leave the place happy and satisfied? This was definitely not the case here.... Mc Donalds may have been a better decision on this day.... Save yourself the disappointment and eat elsewhere.
i have eaten cuban sandwiches all over thr bay area never have tasted a better one.a little pricey but if you want to taste the best at cigar city brew pub. another thing he brew beer once best i have tasted and should know being a beer drinker for 60 yrs,english beers irish beers german beers no contest. besides its 1 mile from my house. thank you cigar city.
from their online web cam view of the bar, it looks like a bunch of old 40-50+ year old bums drinking beer and smoking cigarettes. Females were either obese or decreped looking at best.
