Default Where To Eat in Tampa

Hi everyone, we will be overnighting in Tampa for our December cruise (getting in around 12:30pm) and I'm looking for suggestions on a place to eat from those that have been there. We love seafood but any suggestions are welcome. We are staying at the Marriott Channelside and prefer something in walking distance. Since the area appears to be beautiful a stroll after dinner back to the hotel wouldn't hurt. Thanks to everyone.

David

Bahama Breeze is pretty nice. But don't know where that is in relationship to where you are. Sorry.

Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City for great Cuban, Latino, and American. Their chicken and yellow rice is to DIE..i say, DIE for. A nice bowl of Garbanzo bean soup to start. You won't regret it !! Sorry I don't know how close you will be...

Here is my suggestion. Take the streetcar to Ybor City. In Ybor there's a lot of nightlife, as well as my favorite restaurant, The Columbia. This would add up to an unforgettable night.

I believe the streetcar is within walking distance of your hotel. The hotel concierge should help tremendously with information about this.

Have a great cruise.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Wow, Ed and I were posting at the same time and had the same idea. See, the Columbia is a must-eat.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Definately the Columbia. It is one of our favorites. I believe you can catch the streetcar right at the hotel. Also, check out Channelside, an area of shops and restaurants. Have a blast

My favorite restaurant is Bern's steakhouse. Best steaks and best winelist around. Great dessert room upstairs. Fantastic!! Just take a taxi. You can check out their website: http://www.bernssteakhouse.com/

I like Shell's too. Plenty for seafood and nonseafood eaters. Casual atmosphere and good prices. Unless they built a new one it wouldn't be within walking distance from your hotel.
