    Visited Datz for the first time today and we will definitely be back again soon! We had an amazing brunch! Crรฉme brulee french toast was amazing. Definitely the best of the best in the Tampa Bay area!

    You MUST try the Roger's Reuben. It's served on homemade bread and with homemade chips drizzled with a blue cheese sauce and green onions. This is going to be my once a month go-to place!!!

    We did text ahead seating and bypassed a very long wait for Sunday brunch. All the food was good and my huge Cappucino was amazing! They let us use both a 4square check in deal & our Groupon. A+++

    Amazing! Huge portions & incredibly tasty. Toughest part is trying to choose what you want because it all sounds awesome. The short rib sloppy joe was great!

    not going to lie, i really miss the old Datz. However, their new spin on high class classics is very nice. fried mac &cheese and the red velvet cake are enough to bring anyone back! PLUS THE BACON!!!
  • Natalie F.
    You have to try the burger with a donut for a bun. Amazing! The chicken and waffles was also one of the best I've ever had!

    I started adding bacon to my Bloody Mary as well, yum! Great beer and cocktails, the food is unique but sometimes bland. Just had the chicken & waffles, they were really good, but Edison's are better.

    Anything you order is guaranteed to be AMAZING. Be prepared to share your Monkey Bread with strangers who are sitting around you... text your party info ahead of time for Sat & Sun brunches.

    One of the original places to mark Tampa finally maturing as a food location. Long way still to go, but Datz was where a big step in the right direction was taken.

    Bacon appetizer is the best I've ever had--and I've had me some bacon! Meatloaf is always a winner. We were disappointed they were out of Hare of the Dog and The Brisket. Seriously?

    This place seems to have lost what made it special. The personality is gone and replaced with the snobbery of s tampa. Be sure to order an entree at dinner & drinks to keep the attn of your server.
