I have been dieing to write a post very similar to this for the restaurant’s that I frequent locally, but it looks like that post is going to have to wait for me to get my favorite places in #Tampa Florida to eat posted. I recently reached 1000 blog posts here on my blog and decided to ask my daily readers what they thought my 1000th post should be about, now I am writing posts based on each suggestion made.
My good friend George Serradinho suggested that I write a post that featured what I thought were the best restaurants in Tampa Florida, or at least which restaurants were my favorite restaurants in #Tampabay. Thank you George for the great post idea, if you stop by Serradinho be sure to tell George that Extreme John sent you.
Here’s my 5 favorite places to eat in Tampa.
5 Favorite Restaurants in Tampa
I’m sure that other people can name their favorite restaurants in Tampa and The Palm won’t be on the list, that’s just fine with me because the service and food at The Palms nails them to the top of my list. Alfredo always provides the best service each and every time I visit The Palm, regardless if it’s for business or pleasure.
I can easily go on all day about the customer service of The Palms because it is ALWAYS that good great, from the private kitchen tours to the lobster showings and last minute reservation accommodations it’s always great. See, again with the service. No worries, the food here easily matches the service of The Palm Restaurant in Tampa Florida, if I used a rating system here that had star ratings The Palm Restaurant would be the highest possible rating in every category.
Give The Palm in Tampa a call and tell them Extreme John sent ya, this isn’t a paid review it’s just the review of someone that’s been to The Palm about 30 times and I can’t wait to go back again soon.
I love steak and Ruth’s Chris makes steak just the way I like it, full of butter and all of the other amazing things that makes a steak perfect. All though I have not been to Ruth’s Chris as many times as I’ve been to The Palm in Tampa I can say that the food is always consistent and beyond insanely amazing, excellent service tops off a great night at Ruth’s Chris in Tampa Florida.
When it comes to Italian food nothing is like the homemade stuff that you grew up with as a kid, when I don’t want the mess and work of a great Italian dinner at home Maggiano’s is the spot. Massive portions to stuff the tummy like Ma use to and a great setting for a night away from home in that little Italian restaurant style spot that you crave from time to time.

Here is one little fun fact about 3 of my top 5 restaurants in Tampa, they are all located within the same 100′ of each other at the West Shore Mall. I always have a great time whenever we go to P.F Chang’s, it can be a little rough getting a reservation there but the lettuce wraps make up for it. When your ready to take the fast out of Chinese food and looking to put some quality into your Chinese food cravings, P.F Chang’s is the way to go.
I have to be honest here, I haven’t been to Remington’s in a very… VERY long time and I don’t head over to places in Tampa all that often to head out to dinner, without a doubt I’m sure a Bern’s Steak House or Mitchells Fish Market could easily slide into this spot. Until I get over to Bern’s Steak House or check out the Fish Market it looks like Remington’s will hang on to the 5th spot with it’s decent service and decent food it’s not a bad place for a steak and throwing peanuts on the floor.
