My wife and I visited Willard's a couple of weeks ago after a friend recommended that we try it out. Willards is located in the Ardosy Plaza about a half mile south of Ulmerton on Starkey Rd. Went on a Saturday night and there was quite a diverse crowd of people there. Everyone was talking BEER (how appropriate)!

The quality was exceptional. All of the beers are served in the appropriate glassware and temperature.

The service was nothing less than exceptional. All of the staff is very knowledgeable about what they have to offer and they are also very attentive to the customers needs.

The selection of beers is the best in the area. There are forty taps and they also support the local breweries (Dunedin and Cigar City) by having some of their beers in the rotation. They carry everything from imperial IPA's/stouts to ciders. Finding a quality beer at Willard's is certainly not an issue.

They don't have food just some bar snacks. You can order food from local establishments and bring it in if you like.

Finally a quality place to get a quality pint in central Pinellas. I highly recommend Willard's and will be visiting there frequently.

This is the best craft beer bar I have been to. Bartenders pour a really good beer and are very good at matching people with beers they are interested in. Fun environment, event nights are very fun. Prices are very good comparable to other bars. People also frequently bring bottles for bar and staff to try out.

Willard's is a small place located in a strip mall off a main drag. It was a bit on the grungy and dark side, even on a sunny afternoon. There was a U-shaped bar that seated 16-18 people, 10 high top tables, and a couple regular tables. Two TVs. The decor consisted of collections of bottles and coasters.
My wife and I arrived on a Wednesday afternoon, shortly after they had opened. They were cleaning lines, so the selection was limited, at least initially. More beers quickly became available. There were 40 beers on tap. Ten of these were called the Local 10, and these included local beers such as 7th Sun, Cigar City, Swamp Head, Cycle, Barley Mow, and Dunedin. A nice touch. The blackboard with the beer listings included the ABV and was color-coded, also a nice touch. We had a couple Jai Alai IPAs, one of my favorites.
We spent a pleasant time there. Excellent beer selection. Service was adequate. It looked like you needed to be a local to get the better service.

Stopped by Willard's after a real nice meal at the Cajun on the Bayou. They have 40 taps, clearly listed on a large chalk board with a color coding system by style. Nice touch.
It has a pretty simple decor, which is nice, not too busy. A couple TV's but no one, not one person was even the least bit interested. They had a nice selection of local Florida brews, and some great American craft, with some Belgian's mixed in there too. A very impressive bottle selection as well, although I attempted to order a Cascade that was out of stock, oh well. A real friendly, neighborhood style craft bar. Awesome stuff.
