  8. Green Iguana (S West Shore)

    Editor's pick

    South Tampa : 4029 S West Shore Blvd., Tampa, 33611

    The first Green Iguana emerged in a quiet neighborhood off South West Shore Boulevard. It's the smallest, funkiest and for the majority of South Tampa residents, the most beloved. The air-conditioned tiki bar out front is where rock bands and solo acoustic play every night. It's also where one o …

  11. Gatsby's Restaurant

    Downtown St. Petersburg : 340 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg, 33702

    There are some pleasant dishes, but the menu suffers from the kitchen's constraints. Because it is a historic building, it doesn't have a big hood system, which would allow a grill, flat top and other kitchen equipment. Instead, food is produced in space-age Turbo Chef ovens that use impinged ai …

  14. Green Iguana (Anderson Rd)

    Editor's pick

    Town 'n' Country : 9202 Anderson Road, Tampa, 33634

    The biggest of the bunch, the Veterans location on Anderson Road flaunts the "largest climate controlled Tiki Hut in Florida." We weren't able to verify that claim, but are in agreement that it's huge. The fun-plex also features ample indoor and outdoor seating, three full bars, as well as pool  …

  15. Cheddar's Casual Cafe

    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.

  16. Peg's Cantina & Brew Pub

    Editor's pick

    Gulfport : 3038 Beach Blvd. S, Gulfport, 33701

    Notice first the crazy-fabulous beer list: an array of Belgian ales and lambics, as well as all those American microbrews with the adolescent names (Butthead bock, anyone?). During the week, the menu is healthy, homey Mexican; on the weekend, they crank up the pizza oven and turn out unfussy, sa …
