The Hillsborough River sluices through downtown Tampa, adding yet more watery splendor to a waterfront city. River hangouts just feel different from those where the salt air wafts. This particular one boasts cheap brews and good specials, with live music every day. Not to mention slips for boats up to 50 feet in length, with overnight docking. Docking is free while you eat and imbibe (that's Bud, Bud Light, Miller Light, Coors Light, Amberbock, Mich Ultra and Blue Moon on tap). The menu is not dissimilar to many listed above: grouper sandwich offered fried, grilled blackened or jerked; oyster po boys; and a solid burger effort.
