IMHO -

Its:
1) Council Oak (Hard Rock Casino)
2) Charlie's
3) Berns

If you are going purely on quality of steak and taste. I am a fan of an oak wood grill which both number 1 and 2 above use. Nothing against Berns... Great restaurant and dining experience especially if you are in to wines or want the hit the desert room. Me... its all about the steak.

THIS!!!

Council Oak has the best steak in the Tampa Bay area. I think the food at Berns is a bit overrated, although their desert room is phenomenal. You go to Berns for the experience.

You'll be fine with decent jeans and nice polo shirt at Charlies.
I recommend Ivarone's and Ulele as well. Very good food at each of those.

The Mons may be pretty fishy, and jeans should be fine.

Check out Malio's Prime Steakhouse and https://iavaronessteakhouse.com/ they are brothers and we have enjoyed both.

As mentioned above Bern’s is a cool experience but in my opinion there are better options.

Also, if you are looking for the meat sweats check out https://texasdebrazil.com/locations/tampa/

you will smell like the Marlboro Man before you even step foot in Council Oak. Very good though. I would say Charlie’s or Ocean prime if you don’t want to have to burn your clothes when you get home.

Was at Charleys last night....i am a regular but all mentioned here are good. Im definitely not gonna put the casino food over Charley's but hey, that's the other opinions......Honestly, where you are staying, just go sit at the bar at Charley's and order the steak Tartare and/or a good steak. Love Charleys!

Casual Argentinian restaurant providing grilled meats, panini & pasta, Malbec wines & a hot bakery. Very casual great food at a reasonable price.

The Meat Market that was mentioned in a previous post is good but crazy expensive, like $65.00 for one 7.5 oz colossal stone crab claw expensive.
