Will Never Spend A Cent Here – Hope They go out of business!!!!!!!
Very disappointed in poor staff quality - a ZERO rating – I had a good friend in town and he was staying in Brandon last. I wanted to take him someplace a little "classier" than all the chain restaurants then saw Barbnacles. I had visited there several times with co-workers over the years and always impressed with the food. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to taste any since we sat at a booth in the middle of the restaurant but servers kept helping the few booths around us but never our table. After 15 minutes, all the servers, hostess and even bartenders were not to be found to even complain to or flag down. As we got up and was leaving the parking lot, there were 3 servers outside and I complained - then promplty took our money across the street to Buffalo Wild Wings.
Good solid menu selections – Have eaten there several times even though we do not usually go to sports bars. The menu is more varied than the standard wings 'n burgers fare, with some unexpectedly creative touchs. Quick, attentive service makes it a regular in our rotation.
LOTS OF FUN – One of my favorite things about Barnacles is their goal to entertain to you - from making sure you get to enjoy your favorite sports event to just hanging around listening to music. All this while having a great friendly staff to meet your needs... great food and a comfortable surrounding - who could ask for more?
Great Experience – I was very surprised at the food quality at Barnacles, the seafood was fantastic. We started with the crab stuffed mushrooms and were in heaven. Our server then recommended the Shrimp Malibu as an entree and it was delicious. Our server was very accommodating also, I have 2 picky kids that don't eat a whole lot so we ordered just one kids meals for them, and our server went just an extra step to separate the it onto 2 plates for us in the back instead of bringing it for me to do at the table. That made my night honestly, to really feel like I was being taken care of as well as the rest of my family. We will definitely be going back and SOON!
An AWESOME place with GREAT food and a friendly staff – Barnacles is my favorite place to go to eat some great food and watch my favorite games. Whenever I go into Barnacles the staff is always so nice from the smiling hostess to the helpful server.
On my last visit I discovered that they have some new items on there menu. I got the Rack of Ribs, which was HUGE, and my wife got one of the new breakfast items. Both were absolutly delicious along with the Ahi Tuna appetizer we started with.
In my opinion if you are looking for the best place to go anywhere in Tampa ... Go to BARNACLES IN BRANDON!!!
The website for Barnacles to check out their new menu is www,mybarnacles,com
Great Spot, No Website??? – We love to visit Barnacle's, especially during major sporting events but when we tried to find info it points us to barnacles <dot> com and when we visit that site we end up at a website for Stone Creek Tavern in Dacula, Georgia. HUH???????????????? Would be nice to have a website that goes to info about Barnacle's.
Like it during Lightning hockey season for away games when the Thunderbug and crew are there. And for a sport's related place the food is great! Fast service and very helpful staff with a vast menu selection. Beer is always cold and a TV in every direction here. Highly recommend it for the sport's fan (or the good food fan, too).
Awesome! Can't Wait to Go Back – All I can say is Wow! If you are looking for a restaurant that offers more then just a meal then I recommend Barnacles. My husband and I went in for the first time tonight and were amazed. They have at least 15 projection screens and many HD Flat Screens. It was an awesome place to watch the NCAA Championship Game! They had an awesome wing special and ice cold beer. The food was affordable and amazing! We are defiantly going to go back soon!
Great place for watching sports – I have been meeting my girlfriend at the fine sport bar for a few months now and I have to share my pleasant experiences. I am a college football fan and have watched many games here. The atmosphere is wonderful and you cannot have a bad seat anywhere in this place as televisions and big screens are everywhere. The food is really good and the service is great too. This place has a great variety on the menu, something for everyone. They have many events during the week too. I say go and have a great time.
Great environment, good food, great entertainment. – The bartender was nice and the wings were great!! very nice place a lot of tv's. A+++ sports bar!! I will go there again and again. I been there 4 times already and every time I go the service is excellent. Big place to do a lot of things.
