    Reportedly, they change their menu weekly so you may not enjoy Li'l Kim Jun Ong like I did this Super Bowl Sunday! 😜 So good! 😋

    Seriously Tampa, so bad. The carrots were deep fried greasy sad representations of what could have been. Terrible fries - how do you screw up fries?!?! Learn to season. Avoid, if you are true foodie.

    Food is pretty good too, though perhaps a little 'frou frou' for most tastes. Be sure to check out the menu online the day you plan on going, since they change their menu weekly.

    Do yourself a solid and order the Dirty South Benedict from the seasonal brunch menu - cornbread, pulled pork, creamed spinach and kale, poached organic eggs, drizzled with a hollandaise aioli.

    You may think at first that this is one of those foo-foo places. But everything will exceed your expectations. Tomato soup, hanger steak, and the Myakka greens salad were all superb.

    Favorite restaurant! Menu changes weekly. Burger is always unreal. If Poutine, Pork Bellly, or Beef Tounge is on the menu- get it! Also have great veg options. No reservations needed for the deck.

    Skip the dining room. Sit upstairs in the bar or out on the deck. Food so good should be enjoyed in a relaxing environment.

    I like that they are trying to advance cuisine, but the food is a bit pretentious. The ketchup needs work too
