Our favorite local spot. All the bartenders are friendly and keep your beer full. Excellent place for football days. Actually any sports game. If it's on they have it. Good place to relax and enjoy. Has a patio too if you want to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

Such a great variety of toppings. I really enjoyed the oreo cookie chunks, strawberries, cookie dough bites and peanuts. The tart and chocolate flavors were also very tasty. The customer service was great. The young lady was very friendly. Location is also great - in a plaza with Acropolis Greek Tavern, Starbucks, Five Guys and some others.
I was very impressed with the froyo flavors I tried. The store's circular layout and furnishings are fun and inviting. The young lady working was friendly and helpful. Clean and fresh. And did I mention that the flavors were yummmmm.. Chocolatey chocolate, slightly tart original, cranraspberry sorbet, they even had an ice cream sandwich flavor. :)
First time to Menchie's and first time to this type of yogurt shop. The options were endless. It was nice to be able to sample the flavors to help decide on what to buy. Maddison did a great job of explaining the concept of Menchie's. She was great and had a friendly smile. I love that they offer sugar free and sorbet for individuals with special diets. It is a great place for families and to take the grandchildren.

Cute little buffet restaurant. It kinda reminded me of somewhere Id go to with my grandparents.i know they serve dinner too, but I can only comment on their breakfast, which was good. The buffet had a nice variety. I'd never had grits before, and they had two types to try. I figured I'm living in the south, and now I can say I've tried them. Pretty good ;) I had a tiny bit of almost everything... Except what I really wanted which was the french toast. Um, yum! Sadly, I'm working on losing baby weight so That was a no-go. The fresh fruit was good though. I definitely think we'll go back. Next time, I'll opt for the one plate option, which is such a great idea! Our server was friendly and attentive... And very talkative. Overall, it was a pleasant experience with good comfort breakfast food.
I am torn here. The hot food is good and some items are great chicken is great. Sweet potato casserole... Dessert selection is nice. Salad bars I normally love, but I don't get salad here for some reason. Tea is good. And service is friendly enough. The parking is awful and you probably have to park in dirt. But my main issue is you have to walk by the back of kitchen and the dumpster and man how it stinks!!! Does not make me want to eat the food. Not sure what they were thinking when they designed the place... After much deliberation, I have felt some of the food that I originally thought was amazing feels like generic buffet food. But heck for a buffet it's great. It's better than Golden Corral, it's cleaner, and nicer inside, but not as awesome as mamas cooking! Would I go again if I'm in area ? Yes? Would I drive 40 minutes to visit like I did with the lakeland one. No...
Pretty good place for breakfast buffet. Inexpensive with a variety of choices. During the time I went kids 2 and under was free. Nice friendly atmosphere with lots of fried dishes!

The environment was good. The place was clean. The server was very nice. The place for very busy once we arrived. We had to wait a bit for some things but if they had another server there it would of been fine. But it was understandable they did the best could. I got the beef soup and I spiced it up. Very good. My boyfriend had the pad Thai and he said it was pretty good but remembered it was better before. He's not a big pad Thai guy tho. We will be back and try new things soon.
We've been wanting to try this restaurant for quite a while, and tonight we finally took the plunge! Another strip mall eatery, built this one is quite nice on the inside. Very clean, you can see through to the kitchen, and we were greeted as soon as we entered. Our waitress, Jennifer, was awesome. Our first time for Thai food (aren't we just the adventurous ones?). She very patiently explained the dishes and flavors to us which really helped with our choices. We started with the pan fried dumplings. Yummy. Scoffed those down in minutes ( we were hungry) I ordered the Pa See Eew (rice noodles stir fried with egg, broccoli, carrots and beef in soy sauce). Loved it!!! Portion was quite large, and at $11, reasonable. Hubby had the Gang Dang, which is a red curry dish with coconut milk and veggies. Wow, the flavor of the coconut milk was very obvious, a totally new flavor to me. Again another generous portion. Oh, and the unsweetened iced tea....Awesome, actually has tea flavor!!! Now I'm certainly no expert on Thai food, but I know good food, and this was good!! We will definitely be back. Give it a try, I think you'll like it.
I learned about this great little restaurant when they served up some great food for the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce lunch. I joined a group of ladies for a small networking lunch at Chai Yo and everything was delicious. The service was excellent and the servers were very attentive and always with in sight. The decor was excellent, they have created a cozy little spot. This is not a typical strip mall Chinese restaurant but a nice date night appropriate restaurant. The prices are very reasonable and they were offering a great date night special.

Nice we addition to the Riverview restaurant biz. Went there for dinner -split a gyro and fries (4.99 with coupon) and the chicken kebobs. Food is prepared to order and took a few minutes but was hot and overall pretty good. Kebob was very tender but lacked seasoning maybe get an extra order of tsatzki, we added their homemade hot sauce. Rice and beans were cooked perfectly. Gyro was very good and meat was tender. Staff was friendly and made sure everything was cooled to order. Went back the next day and got some Greek salads to go (I'd call ahead for takeout we had to wait for this too.)
What a nice new restaurant in Riverview! Beautiful on the inside, very clean and large. Staff were extremely nice. You could have a sample of anything they had before ordering (which is nice) and they could not stress enough how everything is freshly made, including the pitas. I had a Spinach swirl with feta cheese and a small side of tabouli salad. The swirl was not as warm as I would like and the tabouli was just ok. The zatziki sauce was a little bland ( needed a bit more cucumber and dill). Hubby had some fried shrimp with rice and beans and a fresh pita. The shrimp was very good, not a drop of oil to be found and batter was very light and perfectly cooked. A little sauce for them would have been nice. The portion was generous with 20 decent sized shrimp. Don't get me wrong, the food was good, service was good, place was awesome. Prices were more than fair. This is a new restaurant that has a few kinks to work out, but I Will definitely be back to try some other items. PS: big negative - Pepsi products - yuck!
#180 This is another one of those strip mall eateries that are easy to miss if you're not looking. Located on 301 near the Bloomingdale intersection Bozeko's says Mediterranean but it is more Greek than Med. this is weird to me because a lot of Greek places are more Med than Greek. Don't come here expecting humus or falafel or any of the med stuff. They have a limited menu consisting gyros and pitas, salads, something called Swirls and fish and shrimp. The place is cafeteria type style, think Quedoba, and although it looks small from the outside it is quite large inside with both booths and tables. Being new is not without some bumps as there was a clearly marked "Order Here" sign but the two young ladies working behind the counter starting taking orders anywhere. They tell you about all their offerings and how fresh everything is and made in house and and and...... When we finally ordered in the proper place, wife ordered a spinach swirl with one side, $5.99, I the shrimp plate with beans and rice, $8.99. I guess the Cuban thing of yellow rice and black beans have permeated our cuisine here even in a place like this. Personally I'm a fan so I didn't mind. And since they were baked fresh we ordered a pita to try. Pepsi products here so be warned if you're a coke lover. The food came fairly quickly. Wife's swirl turned out to be something resembling Spanikopita, only in a pastry tube all curled up in a pinwheel type dish. She also got what looked like tomato salad. My shrimp was plentiful, 20 to be exact, with a light batter and absolutely no grease. The beans and rice were fine. Now for some bads. They did not have any butter in the place, nor hot sauce or cocktail sauce for the shrimp. And in spite of all the talk of fresh the fish and shrimp are frozen. The food was good, not priced out of this world and the place is nice enough for a quick meal, not fancy by any means.

The Talking Pint

Not a bad local/neighborhood bar. I live nearby, so I've seen this place several times, but a friend recommended we go. I have to say the beer selection was impressive. They have around 50-60 beers (tap, bottle, and can) to choose from. I'm a PBR guy (drank PBR before the hipsters drank it) and they have some great deals. This place has about 12-15 seats at the bar, in addition to a couple of tables (4 seats each) and a couple of high tables. There are several (4-6) TV's around the bar with sports on - my kind of place! The lighting is dim, the noise level is average for a bar except on night when they have live music - which can be a little loud for such a confined area - and the place is clean. The staff is great. I met Matt, the owner. Really nice guy and down to earth! The bar tender was attentive and quick. They serve food here, but the kitchen is on one side of the bar. The good news is that there's a huge vent right above the cooking area so the bar doesn't smell like grilled meat all the time. I ordered the buffalo bits, which is essentially just a grilled chicken breast cut into bites and Franks (or some other hot sauce) is applied. The good news is that it seems to be all real food (not processed) that they cook there. Here's why it doesn't get five stars though. The chicken wasn't great. I could tell it was previously frozen, it wasn't really seasoned, and it was slightly undercooked (I could tell from the couple of rubbery textured pieces of chicken I bit into). I will try other things on the menu and provide updates. Overall - good bar, great prices, friendly staff, clean joint, and lots of variety when it comes to beer. I'll definitely be back....just not for the buffalo bites.
What an amazing craft beer selection, I think it is great they offer several local brews too! The talking pint also has some wines and even root bear floats, yum. I also like how their bar food isn't your typical fried greasy food but everything tastes fresh and tasty ( I especially love the buffalo blue cheese burger)! On weekend nights there's live music and a jam session on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Friendly staff, very great and helpful owner, this is truly a fun place to hang out and drink some good brews.
Very nice place in the fishhawk/lithia area. The owner is usually behind the bar and making the food. I've been here a few times and love the burgers. There's usually live music and a good selection of craft beers that change pretty frequently. Outdoor seating if you want to smoke. The other customers have all been very nice. They also have wine and cider and even an alcoholic root beer that my girlfriend really likes.

Cappy’s

6260 Winthrop Town Center Ave
Riverview, 33578
Reviews:
Quite the gem to have in Riverview. I'm a big fan of customized NY style pizza and prefer to avoid large chains like Howie's which seemed to be everywhere I go. Before trying Cappy's, I thought that the best pizza I'd be able to get in Tampa was at Anthony's which is a small but slightly larger chain as we had a couple in South Florida as Cappy's has 5 and all are only in the Bay area. Cool! But of course, the best pizza I've ever found in Florida is Scuola Vecchia in Delray Beach. I'd say from the pizza at Cappy's earned them 2nd place in my Florida book. Now, let's get to the location, parking was ample at Winthrop Town Centre. The facade was darling as if I was on Main Street USA at Disney World or more so like Mayberry in the 60's. The interior was cool, but I found a problem as soon as we walked in. All of the tables inside are meant to seat 4-6 people and none for a single or a couple. There were several families with babies and one parent was kind of rude not to move her baby carrier out of the only available booth even though she clearly saw us. We had to ask her politely to move it out of the booth. You can dine outside, but we opted to dine inside as I'm allergic to wasps which we definitely saw some right before we entered. The menus are homemade with printed food items cut out, pasted on the back of old Vinyl Record music jackets and then laminated. It was very kitschy and hard to read as the menus my husband and I received were very different in terms of how the lists of food items were arranged. They do not carry Dr. Pepper, only Mr. Pibb. We ordered the Cappy's NY style pizza which was to consist of: Italian sausage, ham, pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, and green bell pepper. But we requested to swap out the pepperoni with artichoke hearts instead. We must've waited a good 20 minutes for the pizza but luckily we did order a caesar salad that was of romaine lettuce and creamy Caesar dressing. The pizza arrived steaming hot. It was divine!! After our first slice, we noticed there was no ham, just Italian sausage. We only requested to have pepperoni removed. Flagging the waitress down wasn't helping as she was focused on a larger party across from us. By the time we were full and had 2 slices left, she came over and we were able to inform her then of the missing ham. She was nice to have promptly edited our check for the lack of ham. We had the leftover slices at home later that evening and my gosh, they were still fantastic-- even when cold! I believe we have found our new pizza place!!
Let me start off by saying I'm a huge pizza fanatic! Well... I'M not huge. I do have a few extra pounds around the mid section, but that may be from all the pizza I eat. I used to travel to Chicago often, and every time, I would get a deep dish from one of the many famous pizzerias. To say Cappy's had some high expectations to meet was an understatement. Let's start with the dining area. It reminds me of a Chicago pizzeria; small, tight, and almost a maze. I like places like this with lots of character. They keep it clean, so kudos to them! They also have a vintage freezer with frozen mugs (help yourself I think, I did). To break up the boredom, the have trivia cards at the table. This kept everyone off their phones and interacting with each other, while having a good time. Major bonus points for that! The service was great! Very friendly, and helpful. Our server was even nice when I spilled my water. Oops, sorry for that. The food was good. The cheese bread was delicious! The deep dish pizza (The Cappy) didn't quite live up to the actual Chicago deep dish pizza I'm used to, but it was good. The only thing I didn't like was the Cesare Salad. It was a little wilted. Overall, this place is good, and I'll definitely be back to try the New York pizza.
We were looking for a new pizzeria in the Brandon area, and having read all the reviews on Cappy's we decided to give it a try. Friday is take out and movie night at home so we ordered a pie to go! We ordered the large Cappy hold the bell peppers and a large Greek salad. The pizza was very good, although I am not yet sure it's better than Anthony's, but I'll reserve judgment until I can sit down in the restaurant and eat it hot from the oven! The sauce was good, and the pepperoni and sausage were unremarkable, and I needed a crisper crust. However, the Greek salad was greatly lacking. Several pieces of the Iceberg lettuce were brown and wilted. It was very ordinary, Iceberg lettuce, green peppers, red onion, and tasteless feta cheese. The Greek dressing was sweet, which maybe what masked the bite of the feta cheese. Needless to say, I'm not a fan of this salad, while I love a good Greek salad. A little quality control might have allowed me to over look the rest.

A must see for a very casual /dive bar with a great on the river location. You just can't beat a bar that uses tires as a base for their tables. Lol basic beers with a food trailer next door. Great little locals place. Parking is limited but there is a fire pit on the cool Florida nights. TV's for the sports Dan inside and on the patio
Definitely one of a kind, went here with a buddy and had some beers. Fair price and is definitely a "neighborhood" bar. Don't let the trailer park fool you. Everyone was extremely nice. Next time going to have to try a burger, that think looked amazing. REMEMBER ITS CASH ONLY, they do have an ATM. Definitely a place you got to try at least once. Ask them about the wooden door on the cooler.
Yup a five star hole in the wall. Good times for us river rats! Cold beer and a great view of the river.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Reviews:
I really don't care for burgers-in fact, I'm not much of a meat eater-I'm a semi-vegetarian (yes, it's politically correct lol)...but 5 Guys...wow. Outstanding burgers. I must say I'm truly impressed. Burgers literally melt in your mouth. They have mastered how to cook them. I've never had a dried out, burnt burger from these guys. The fries are delicious and portions are generous. Pricing is higher than hitting up chemical land (IE: McDonalds) but well worth it. You get what you pay for. Environment is super casual, clean, and seating is plentiful. It does get busy during lunchtime. My only complaint? Parking. Due to the location and being that the strip mall is fully occupied-parking can get a little congested. Overall-parking issues won't stop me from going back! Who can resist those HUGE, juicy burgers?!
Friendly staff, quick and delicious food, and usually not a long wait when I order online! Thanks!
Five Guys gets four stars, in my book. If they tightened up the fries (usually they're a bit soggy for me) and added shakes to their menu they'd hit 5 stars easy. I love the burgers here, like most people do, and I do enjoy the fries (just think they need a little tweak), and even their hot dogs are good. This location gets you in and out pretty quickly, and the staff is friendly. They are also very accommodating to folks who can't eat gluten. They'll change their gloves if you mention your allergy to the cashier when ordering, and put your burger in a lettuce wrap or on a bowl.
