Beef’s solidifies Ed Radice connection at Gunn Highway site

For 10 years, Beef ‘O’Brady’s Citrus Park has been an integral part of the community and a welcoming place for friends and families to gather. It’s close proximity to Ed Radice Sports Complex has made it a popular spot to dine after soccer and baseball games, and the private party room is often host to team gatherings and coaches’ meetings.

"It’s very family friendly, very community connected and I think that is the primary thing that sets Beef ‘O’ Brady’s apart from other restaurants that are similar to us but are not exactly like that for that reason," said CEO Chris Elliott.

Beef ‘O’ Brady’s unveiled its newly remodeled restaurant with a ribbon cutting and grand reopening celebration last month. Elliott was on hand to welcome guests and presented a $1,000 scholarship to Leto High School senior Travis Foster who will play soccer at the University of Tampa this fall.

The restaurant’s updates include a brighter interior, 27 new 70-inch televisions, an open game room, new furnishings, an updated bar, a new kitchen, and outdoor seating on the patio. The party room now has wooden barn doors, new seating and a screen with a new projector.

The menu also got a makeover with the addition of new char-grilled entrees such as sirloin, classic ribeye, and grilled salmon.

Beef ‘O’ Brady’s is at 8568 Gunn Highway. It is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call 813-920-6525, or visit beefobradys.com.
