My husband & I have been living in the Tampa Bay area since 2002 and love to eat out. Our favorite places are the small, local restaurants and we’re always on the lookout for new places to try.
We do have some restaurants we visit frequently. Those places that are close by, fast, inexpensive and we know we won’t be disappointed. I’m trying to branch out and try other dishes than my tried and true favorites. Hopefully this blog will chronicle that journey and give us good ideas on where to visit more often.
The majority of our restaurant reviews will cover Safety Harbor, Oldsmar, Palm Harbor, Dunedin, Clearwater, and surrounding areas. Occasionally we head down to the beach area around Indian Rocks beach or over to Tampa, St Petersburg, or Orlando. And this spring we’ll be heading to the Big Island in Hawaii. That trip is one of the main reasons why this food blog exists.
As I was researching places to eat in Hawaii, I found the best reviews were on personal food blogs. Places the locals love to go. That’s where I like to eat. I don’t need fancy, I don’t need hip and upscale. I like to eat at down home local places where the cooks do what they do because they love it.
I hope our local restaurant reviews will help others find some good local places to eat in the Tampa Bay area. If nothing else, at least it lets us know where we’ve been spending all our money.
