Sonny's is always a go to for great BBQ! I love the dry rub ribs and the sliced pork. Cole slaw and fries are my go-to for sides. Garlic bread is the best!

I went to the Brandon location and I was beyond impressed. I tried a sampler with ribs, pulled pork, and jalepeno cheddar sausage. All of it was phenomenal. My sides of cole slaw and BBQ beans were great also. Plenty of great sauces also!!

Pros: Everything! Ribs, Jalepeno Cheddar Sausage....like 8 BBQ sauces....cool theme inside...

Cons: There isn't one in Plant City!

If you need a great local place to play pool, drink beer, play darts, and watch some TV without the wife....this is the place to go! This place has been here forever and its no wonder...they have the perfect recipe to get away from it all for a couple hours.

One of the best and most well known restaurants in Tampa. The kitchen & wine cellar tour is a must for first timers. The desert room is an entire meal in its own. If you pass on alcohol, you can get an excellent meal at a very reasonable price.

Pros: Great food. Great service. Very reasonable steak prices for a high end restaurant. Kitchen tour & desert room are both fun and unique.

Cons: Steaks don't have much seasoning...they plan on you buying an upgrade sauce or mushrooms for them. Rooms are weird...most are very dark and the seating is very tight. You almost have to whisper to your table so the entire room doesn't hear your conversation.

Nice donut shop in Palm Harbor. Very good selection of fancy donuts. Apple fritters the size of your head! Somewhat overpriced...almost $10 for two donuts and a coffee.

Pros: Fancy donuts. Good selection. Reese Peanut Butter Cup donut was awesome!

Cons: $3 for a medium coffee pretending to be a large that tastes exactly like McDonalds. I don't want to spend $1 for a true large coffee there, so I really dont want to spend $3 for the same tasting coffee in a medium cup here.

We were here for a friend's birthday dinner and we were completely blown away by everything! All the food was phenomenal...a bunch of us shared with each other, so we were able to try out more than just our dinners. The server was exceptional as well!

Pros: Just about everything! The food, the service, the view, the decor...you name it!

Cons: Need to park in garage around the corner. Small bar area can be tight when busy.

Fun, young crowd. Thursdays are huge for $1 beer night & karaoke. Friday happy hour gets pretty hectic.

Pros: Fun in a group. Cheap beer on Thursdays. Fun karaoke in the back.

Cons: College kids who don't know how much alcohol they can handle.
