20 Unique Restaurants and Craft Beverage Spots to Eat & Drink in Tampa Bay

Welcome to Tampa Bay! Who's not looking for a great spot for food and beverage?!

I'm not a paid writer. In fact, I'm not a writer at all. (Thank goodness for spellchecking)

Before creating this company 6 years ago, I spent the better part of twenty years opening and running restaurants.

We have millions of visitors and locals page through our Tampa Bay Guide and our Pennsylvania guides online. As the owner of LiveWorkPlay and a 17-year resident of Tampa Bay, you should know that I personally visit each and every place myself. The small, independent businesses are a favorite.

Whatever your taste, there is something for everyone. Please enjoy a great meal, craft beverage, dessert or whatever you fancy from one of these great small businesses.

Happy Holidays,
