  • Spoto's Grill 131


    Cuisine: American upscale, Steak house
    Features: Date night, Happy hour, Upscale

    Seminole: 13079 Park Blvd., Seminole, 33776

    Bob Spoto opened his latest venture on the site of a restaurant he opened back in 1991. Right out of the gate Grill 131 has done everything right. Attractive without being busy or precious, it's a big restaurant (4,000 square feet and more than 150 seats) that manages to feel intimate. Its adjacent bar is sleek and clubby, easy to imagine filled with stylish hoards. The food is familiar, heavy on the steaks, chops and fillets of fish, but every single dish has a fillip of something unexpected or something au courant. Think thinly pounded beef carpaccio lush with truffle oil and topped with a pouf of microgreens and a sprinkling of smoked sea salt. An Asian accent here, a deep nod to the Mediterranean there, but underneath it all is recognizable food, competently prepared.

  • London Bus Pub

    Features: Darts, Neighborhood

    Seminole: 5667 Seminole Blvd. , Seminole, 33772

    One of Seminole's cutest visual landmarks. The exterior sports a faux front porch pub facade with painted-on windows, wooden shutters and a cartoon red lorry with headlights that turn on. Modestly priced sports bar grub, comfort food and British staples. On Sunday, you can't order from the menu, just the dinner special, which can range from barbecue to spaghetti. The crowd here leans toward older vets, since it's near VFW and American Legion posts and Bay Pines VA Hospital.

  • Seminole: 8701 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, 33772

  • Porpoise Pub


    Features: Beloved dive, Big-screen TVs, Gaming stations/trivia, Neighborhood, Outdoor seating, Rock

    Seminole: 8701 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, 33772

    A friendly dive bar with charm and a lot more going for it than meets the eye, the Porpoise Pub is housed at the site of an old-school aquarium, and the bar used to be a dolphin tank. Now folks get tanked on cheap beer, play trivia and watch the game on one of the many TVs.
