Default BEST FOOD IN TAMPA?

Gentlemen, I will be travelling to Tampa twice in the next 2 weeks for business; just wondering where to get a good Grouper sandwich and see the (scenery?) Any help would be appreciated. If anyone wants to hook up for an afternoon of fishing, a full tank of gas is on me! PM me if anyone is interested..
Thanks,

Go to Clearwater beach and a place called frenchys, They have abour 3 to 4 places and one with a dock, good luck docking there though if you have a boat.

Frenchy's is pretty renowned for their grouper sandwiches in Clearwater. If you want to go to a nice dinner restaurant, The Island Grill (I think that's the name of it) right after getting over to Clearwater Beach has excellent seafood.

Frenchy's all the way on mandalay ave, Clearwater Beach. Also, local spot Cooters on Clearwater beach as well. Ellie's above is referring to Island Way grill after the bridge heading west to Clearwater beach. Turn right on Island Way and the rest is on the left.

Salt Rock Grill (same owners as Island Way) for the best seafood. Located on the intracoastal in Redington Beach. Also the Columbia in Tampa and St Pete

Frenchy's for grouper sammiches. Casual.

Santorini in Tarpon Springs for whole fish (sides come with it). You have to order off the menu, ask them what whole fish they have. They will usually have grouper, red snapper, and porgies whole, and do an excellent job putting out a spread. Tell them what fish(es) you want, and to make it a dinner. Casual.

Oyster Catchers (small restaurant in the Hyatt complex by TPA airport) for seafood fine dining. Food is excellent and much quieter than Salt Rock, you can't hear yourself think in that place. Semi-formal.

A place called "Jacksons" is pretty good in Tampa for steak & grouper. Just over the short bridge from the Tampa Convention Center. Killer view, get an outside table !

Bern's is still there, as good as ever. Not a traditional first choice for a grouper sandwich, though!

MIght not be a grouper sandwich but my favorite, thinking Tampa and the Cuban food, I have always found Teo Pepe's on the Clearwater side of the cause way from Tampa to be one of the best around. Plus they or they used to have the best Margarita I have ever drank. There is a motel next door, which I have stayed at several times after drinking toooo many of them.

It's not much of a lunch place, in fact I dont even know if they are open at noon. It's a good spot for a date, good seafood and a nice bar.
