Thought it time to re-review a really good place. Stopped in for a pint and lunch. The 'Atmosphere' rating goes up because outside, where I always sit, is a really nice place to sit and sip and eat and people-watch. The music was too loud this time, though, or it would have been higher.
And a new dish, Tandoori Chicken Pita, was good but the chicken was cold and the Tzatsiki sauce was minimal (and a bit bland) resulting in a somewhat dry sandwich. Fortunately, the beer was quite good.

Well, I've finally made it to the new digs of TBBC. I expected a lot, more space, etc. now that they are at Centro Ybor. Great locale, right at the center of of the place, next to the trolley line, under the theaters. Location, location, location.
I liked the outdoor seating and bar area. Great for people watching and if someone in your party is smoking one of Ybor's hand-rolled cigars. Then I went inside. Not so impressed there. A huge amount of space but it felt very... industrial. Not inviting like the old place with that wonderful, hammered copper counter top. So I went back outside.
The service was still excellent, the food was awesome and I swear the selection increased as well but I think the prices went up with the move. All the beers available inside are available outside, too. I like the big umbrellas on the tables, especially considering the southern exposure in Florida.

How many times have I walked/driven past this place after having my fill of Ybor City? Too many, it would appear, now that I've finally gotten inside. How could I have gone so long? What a fool I've been.
Got in for a late lunch on a weekday and found the place half full. The waitstaff were very quick, very knowledgeable and very friendly. The atmosphere is much like a typical sports bar but with nice shiny, stainless steel tanks in the corner and a rack of taps showing nearly everything they brew. I started with the Jack the Quaffer Porter (of course) sampled a few others before finishing with the Iron Rat Oatmeal Stout. The beers were very well made, very drinkable, but those reviews belong elsewhere. Of course, with that much beer I had to eat. The menu is fairly good-sized and I really enjoyed the food, as did all the people around me (I asked). The portions are good but not so big you need to share with a friend. Chalkboards show what beers are available currently with ABV listed for those who don't have all day to linger like I did. I will be back next time I'm in Tampa, in fact, I'll plan my day around it.
