Combined with adjacent Rumba (also Baystar Restaurant Group), Salt Rock Tavern is making Oldsmar something of a party scene. You'll want to focus on the beer list, a jubilant paean to Tampa Bay's thriving suds scene with Cigar City, Tampa Bay Brewing and most of the other big names represented. A short list of house cocktails precludes any easy choices — a blackberry bourbon lemonade is a real charmer with its slight cardamom infusion. The menu hits some contemporary notes: a kale salad heavy on sweet peanut butter flavor; and French onion soup dumplings, a dish borrowed from Baystar's Marlin Darlin, is like a richly flavored soupless soup. Still, simple is good, like the brined, smoked rotisserie chicken with buttery garlic mashed potatoes, or a hot, open-faced filet mignon sandwich smothered in peppers and onions and given a luscious drizzle of Maytag blue aioli.

Hours: 4-10:30 p.m. mon.-Thur., 4-11:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat., 11 a.m.-2 p.m. brunch, then 2-9 p.m. dinner on Sun.
