  • Bonefish Grill (Brandon)


    Cuisine: American casual, Seafood upscale
    Features: Children's menu, Date night, Kid-friendly, Takeout

    Brandon: 1015 Providence Road, Brandon, 33511

    Bonefish Grill's mother ship opened on Fourth Street N in 2000. Now more than 150 locations strong, it was selected the best value in the seafood category by Consumer Reports in June 2009. The menu at Bonefish has been fairly steady, but there is some movement in a new direction: affordable, shareable dishes that don't require a lot of utensils. Something to nibble over drinks with friends, including a new American wagyu burger ($10.90), Bang Bang shrimp tacos ($8.90) and tempura-battered fish and chips ($10.90). As for the main entrees, Bonefish unfortunately hides its light under a bushel of sauces. But the concept is otherwise resoundingly contemporary. More affordable than many of the other upscale national chains, on a couple of visits it seemed to be a favorite girls-night-out destination, whole posses clinking wine glasses and spoon-fighting for a bite of very respectable creme brulee ($5.50). Its martini menu (most drinks hovering in the laudably reasonable $7.50 range) has stylish bells and whistles (house-infused pineapple tequila, Danish blue-stuffed olives, plenty of pomegranate juice), and a broad by-the-glass wine program is arranged lightest to most full-bodied, very user friendly.

  • Applebee's Neighborhood Grill (Brandon)


    Cuisine: American casual
    Features: Children's menu

    Brandon: 829 Providence Road, Brandon, 33511

  • Babe's Pizza


    Cuisine: Deli, Pizza

    Brandon: 107 N Kings Ave., Brandon, 33506

  • Beef'O'Brady's (Brandon, S Kings Ave.)


    Cuisine: American casual
    Features: Big-screen TVs, Children's menu, Kid-friendly, Sports

    Brandon: 210 S Kings Ave., Brandon, 33511

    The now 270+ strong chain of family pubs started in Brandon. Founder Jim Mellody was a transplanted Pennsylvanian who tried a steakhouse, but when that didn't work, he added his mother's maiden name to the word "Beef" on the sign and watched business take off. The formula is simple: good wings, burgers and other casual American fare in an environment that is family-friendly.

  • Ben's Family Restaurant


    Cuisine: Breakfast or brunch, Southern
    Features: Takeout

    Brandon: 704 E Brandon Blvd., Brandon, 33511

Bars:

  • O'Brien's Irish Pub of Brandon


    Cuisine: American casual, Pub
    Features: Big-screen TVs, Darts, Happy hour, Irish, Kid-friendly, Ladies night, Late-night dining, Live music, Outdoor seating, Sports, Takeout, tbt* Top Bar

    Brandon: 701 W Lumsden Road, Brandon, 33511

    It also has locations in Riverview and Plant City. But this is one of our favorites. Tucked into the dark streets of suburban Brandon, the neon green shamrock that tops O'Brien's is a beacon of night life. The atmosphere is casual — Irish pub meets Applebee's — and it's perfectly acceptable to start up a game of darts or shoot the breeze on the patio with a stranger. Indoor and outdoor bars, plenty of flat screens and live music make this O'Brien's an ideal place to pass the evening when you're not yet ready to turn in for the night.

  • Cheddar's Casual Cafe


    Cuisine: American casual, Casual Dining
    Features: Children's menu, Kid-friendly, Takeout

    Brandon: 11135 Causeway Blvd., Brandon, 33511

    Comfort food with few surprises, Cheddar’s is a safe bet. Although we bet you’ve never had baked Spasagna before if you haven’t been here: spaghetti layered with cheese, then topped with a sauce of your choosing. Popular enough that you can expect a wait, so plan accordingly.
