Neighborhood spot around for decades. Packed on a Saturday night (before COVID), neighbors really like it here, contributing to its long term survival. Open-air front patio is charming, and so is the rustic interior. Old movies like Dr Zhivago screened on big outdoor wall, adding to cool ambiance. Grouper bites are delicious and very fresh paired with a tasty remoulade. Menu is solid. Restrooms are clean; parking is spacious, including around back. Located at 4115 S Macdill Ave Tampa, FL 33611.  https://maddogs.com/
